 Complaint Details

Publishers Clearing House advertises that "a person needs not make a purchase in order to participate in it's sweepstakes." A purchase would not increase the chances of them winning. That is b.s.! As a purchase (they should tell the truth) is that it does. How do I know? I received their contest/mail order letter. I had noticed the "You have not ordered in a while, please reconsider." Knowing this is how they come up with the prize money, I ordered and left the envelope on the shelve to mail. I received another contest entry in the mail.
Not wanting to waste stamps, I filled out the next contest entry (because I already ordered on the other entry), I did not order on this one. I put the previous envelope into the newest entry, sealed it and mailed it. That was about a month ago. Guess what?! I still have yet to receive my order!!!!! Which tells me that because P.C.H. did not see an order in that envelope, they tossed the whole entry out!!! Otherwise if they were abiding by their own guidelines (and not the lying scuzzess that they truly are) they would have opened a l l  entries and saw my order and processed it!!! So now I know the rest of the story...
