Publishers Clearing House Scam - 2020 PCH Award Lottery

There is no "2020 PCH Award" like the email below. Therefore, recipients of emails like the one below, which claim they are winners in such a lottery are asked to delete them because they are being sent by lottery scammers. The aim of the scammers is to deceive their potential victims into thinking they are the real Publishers Clearing House, but they are NOT! The real Publishers Clearing House would NEVER ask their winners for money or personal information for any reason to claim sweepstakes prize awards.

Official Notification

Copyright 2020 Publishers Clearing House. All Rights Reserved

Publishers Clearing House (PCH) is a direct marketing company that markets merchandise and magazine subscriptions with sweepstakes, prize-based game, search, and lottery websites.

Publishers Clearing House (PCH) does not ask for bank account or other financial information. There is no processing fee, tax or special handling charge required to win. The Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes prizes are delivered free of charge to the winners.

How to Determine if you are being Scammed

If you are contacted by someone claiming to represent Publishers Clearing House, or claiming to be a PCH employee and asked to send or wire money, send a pre-paid gift card or a Green Dot MoneyPak card, or cash a check and send a portion back to him/her as payment for any reason to claim a Sweepstakes prize, it is a scam.

The scammers’ preferred method of sending money is through Western Union, MoneyGram, Green Dot MoneyPak card. This is because those methods of sending money make it virtually impossible for the victims to get back their money.

    It is early March, 2020. I have been called repeatedly by a group claiming they are from PCH, and they say that I have won 5.2 million dollars and a new Mercedes Benz automobile. When I tell them I don't recall entering the PCH Sweepstakes, they tell me that this is a special program just for senior citizens who have a good record of paying their utility bills. I tell them to send the money to the house, but they say they can't do that. Today I listened long enough to learn that I would have to pay for the shipping of the automobile. I told the caller that I already had a fair to good car, and he could keep the Mercedes as a gift from me if he would send the money to the house. I guess I was laughing at my dog at the time, because she was playing on the floor in front of me, and the caller may have thought I was laughing at him. He hung up on me. No money and no car!

      Yesterday, I got a call from a person named Dave Green (941) 295-9515 (Northport Fl) from publishers clearing House stating I won 2.5 million. He called because I hadn’t returned any of PCH his emails and wanted to make sure nothing had happened to me. Sure he did. He asked How did I feel how about winning 2.5 million, and wanted me to write the following info down on a sheet of paper: his name Dave Green, confirmation#, PIN #, Badge #, 0#, & Batch#.

      He started asking a bunch of other personal questions with I US citizen and blah blah blah. I asked what does that have to do with winning? He said these are the questions on the T 9 Form. Said he could deliver the money by 2:30 if I could pay $450.00 for taxes to NaomI Bechtold to release, because the check was on hold, and the $450.00 would be reimbursable. Write the check out to NaomI Bechtold, address: 1209 Old Philadelphia Pike

      Lancaster, PA 17602.

      He insisted on wanting to stay on the phone while I drove to the post office and he could explain to the post office how to get an electronic receipt so that they can deliver my check by 2:30 pm.

      He would stay with me the whole time on the phone, no worries he said. After I wrote all the info down I called and reported him to PCH.

        Once you are asked to pay money in order to receive a lottery prize, it is a scam.
