Tuesday, January 29,2013 I decided to go online to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.   Usually I would send my entries by mail but in order to send my entry faster, I attempted to submit mine online. Publishers Clearing House always says you can enter as often as you like and there is no purchase necessary.

I submitted my entry successfully, and was directed to continue onward, which I did. the page opened up to some items, a sack of gold, two crossed swords, etc.. Each had a target next to them and I was to choose one of these items and click on it's target. When I did , immediately pops up is a sign saying I've won a 25% off discount on a purchase.  Great! No problem! 

I browsed through to see if they had something I might be interested in and found nothing in particular that I wanted to buy, so I attempted to leave the page. I was interrupted by a "Pop-up" asking me do I really want to leave the page, that if I click to leave the page I will forfeit my entry. So I clicked to stay on the page. When I did that, the page went blank.

I made a second attempt to leave and the "Pop-up" came up again! After seeing nothing but a blank page again I tried to leave the site and the same message popped up but this time I opted to click the "leave the page" option, therefore forfeiting my entry for a chance to win $5000.00 a week forever!  Publishers Clearing House, tell the truth! In order for an individual to have a successful entry into your sweepstakes they do have to purchase something, if not, their entry is forfeited!! Not Good!
