wrong answers on quiz

Today, for the second time, there was an incorrect answer on a PCH quiz. PCH states that the Great Depression came BEFORE the Civil War. WHAT?????? So, I get points deleted because I am not a complete moron. Hire some people with a basic eighth grade education.

Trouble with loading & opening games

For over a week now I have been unable to load lotto,keno & other games. Sometimes I can play one lotto card but then after the ad plays nothing. Sometimes it says unsecured site. Very frustrating! Makes me want to stay away from PCH .

I won according to one of PCH's online contests - $700. But the screen which showed that disappeared, and was replaced with one that said, "Congratulations! You won 25000 tokens." Wha-a-at? They told me I won money, then just took back the prize.

So I come from a family who really believed in PCH we would play faithfully and as a family and discuss how we would divide the money college funds etc. So here I am now the third generation to still try and "win for life". I believe this is more of a get real story than it is a complaint. Tell me why is it that no one in New York City has ever won PCH, no one from the Bronx no one who doesn't have a home with a backyard that's not already old as hell so that "win for life" doesn't have to be paid out for long. It's always those emails "last search to enter" "claim or forfeit" that gives you that false hope like maybe it can happen to me, and then you wake up still in the Bronx no knock on your door no huge check. False hope

Every Slots game is missing an "instant winner" icon on one of its wheels. There is no way to win the jackpot. What is up with that? Should I hire an attorney to sue for fraud?

They use fishing tactics to lure you into buying something so you can win a lot of money which is illegal.

Publisher Clearing House has a fishing practice which is illegal . For they try to lure people in to buying some thing to win a lot of money. For all my E-mails from them reflect this type of illegal operation going on and this type of gambling is illegal as hell in all 50 States. The U.S. Courts need to take action on this practice today!

I'm not sure why your department hasn't put a stop to PCH mis-guided fraudulent advertising month after month, It's amazing how many times they can give away $5,000.00 a week for life to people all over this country without going out of business. Can't you stop this?

games jerking me around to other websites

I have responded to all of the pch mail outs for years and enjoy getting my news from front page and playing all of their games, but in the past couple of weeks they have been locking up really bad and taking me to other websites.I have tried everything I know to do but nothing seems to work.If this does not get fixed, I might have to stop responding to pch e-mails.

I've been cheated out my winnings and my pch access is limited and obstructed

I was informed That I had won the April 30,2015 $ 7,000.00 a week for life. Did all That I was told .I was.Then a week before the issuance of the prize,I've been locked out of the pch contests, my name has been tagged in your system to keep me from responding to winning emails or enter Your on line contests. I want my winnings. I thought that Publishers Clearing House was a company that has integrity, I see I was wrong.

You cant register for cash prize

PCH says you do not have to order anything, went through the questions and said skip when they asked if I wanted accept any of their offers, got to eversave and still continued to say no, the website said that there was an error and then directed me to another window for eversave and there was no way to skip this, pch is a scam and someone needs to call them on this. They tell you that a purchase will not help you win, yet they expect you to participate even though you just want to win the money. Thats how this company gets your money. What a joke.

This is a waste of time!

PCH is a HUGE waste of my time!!! I have been trying to win through PCH (Publisher's Clearing House) for quite a few years and I have ordered things, filled out all the entry forms and I have never EVER won anything from them!! This is a TOTAL rip-off! I will never EVER deal with PCH again!!! I am through wasting my time and not getting nothing in return!!! This company wants you to fill out all these forms and search for chances to win and buy things, BUT THEY NEVER GIVE YOU NOTHING IN RETURN!!! This is a HUGE WASTE OF ANYONE'S TIME!! BLOCK PCH FROM YOUR E-MAIL AND DON'T ANSWER THEM AT ALL!!! ALL YOU WILL GET IN RETURN IS A BILL FOR HAVING TO PURCHASE ITEMS!!!

This is a waste of time!

I totally agree with everyone's comlaints. I also been sending in applications for many years until i got my first computer from my daughter last year. 2011. Thats when i started applying over the the Pubisher Clearing House Internet Sweepstakes. Ive been swindled into try before you buy producls, only to be charged full price for the item, evern before i got it! Or, not even got it at all and it costs as much as over 100.00 taked right out of my debet card. Heck of a way to learn? Im finished with their lies and promises of if you play games. you win instant prizes, and also you can never redeem those points you aqire after playing all those games of chance! In the year 2009, they had me believe that i was the big winner! They had the closest florest picked out and everything all aranged for me to really believe i won! I evern had the form on the wall for everyone to see! However, all i got stuck with was alot of magazine bills in which i never ordered and now they went to the credit burour! My advise, dont get involved with these people because once they get your credit information? They start charging your card to all kinds of fausifyed puchaces! Arline Lineberger-Ubl. DONT GET INVOLVED!
