I believe it is about time for another investigation into The Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes as there was in Iowa in 2000 http://www.iowa.gov/government/ag/consumer/press_releases/pch-cid.html  I recently have been playing the search and win which is a search engine on PCH which allows the opportunity to win cash during searches.  If you do not have a prize after 25 searches than you can no longer expect to get a prize during a search.  However, as is clearly stated on the site that you can still search after 25 searches.  My account has been disabled because I elected to use the engine after the 25 searches that could have theoretically won me a prize.  Their customer service said my activity was "suspicious" and that I would no long be permitted the opportunity to use this avenue to try to win a cash prize - ever!!  This came after I also attempted to play on their game site a game where you pop balloons to win certain prizes.  I attempted to do this several times and was not allowed to do so.  I was given a message that I had played even though I had not.  One person in customer service admitted a problem with their system while another person all but called me a liar and sent me very pointed emails.  I have been deprived two venues to play their "games" and win.  I know the odds of winning this or any other sweepstake is astronomical but I would like to have at least felt like I had the same chance as anyone else to win.  PCH must be investigated again.  Complaints are accumulating about it all over the web and I am off to gather them and to add my voice to as many sites as I can.
