S C A M A L E R T - PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE SWEEPSTAKES

Are all scams.. They bombard you with emails offering entry into the sweepstakes and tell you up front.. Ordering from these fabulous offers will not increase your chances to win.. However, do please view the offers before you submit your entry into our sweepstakes..

If you are NOT ordering, it will take you into circles and will not allow you to make your submission into the sweepstakes.. When you go to log out, a new window will pop out that will tell you if you close this window without submitting your entry you will forfeit your right to enter this sweepstakes. The system is rigged to only (supposedly) accept those entries with orders...

#1 General Comment

Publishers Clearing House

AUTHOR: Scott M1975 - ()

I never paid for anything and it excepts my entry. I have also sent in mail entries. I even won a $5.00 dollar gift card for Amazon, playing one of their online games. I think people who enter expect too much for something offered for free. The way I look at it, at the very, very least.....They give hope. I also believe the company has ways of tracking things that make them aware of how hard the people who really, really want to win, Play and search.

Not true

AUTHOR: rippedoff - (USA)

I use the search and win on a daily basis and I am never required to place an order. Before you scream scam as the others have said make sure you are doing it correctly. Try reading for example.

#3 Consumer Comment

I just entered without purchase.

AUTHOR: Inspector - (USA)

I think you need to read more carefully before you scream foul! Although I have never really seen anyone (on the news or in the papers) that won from PCH, except in their commercials, you should be more careful before you scream SCAM.

#4 UPDATE Employee

Not True

AUTHOR: Todd Sloane, SVP PCH - (United States of America)

The above comments are totally false and untrue. Publishers Clearing House never requires an order to be entered into any of our sweepstakes. The person who posted this comment did not follow the directions at the site correctly. if you visit pch.com, you will see that ordering isnt a requirement and you can enter without an order. In fact, the majority of our winners have won with entries that didnt contain orders.

Thank you.Todd Sloane
