You should contact your state Attorney General's Consumer Protection Div. and the Better Business Bureau if Publishers Clearing House is using illegal intimidation and threats.
I have had this experience (THE 2012 "SWEEPSTAKES") In the sweepstakes paperwork, It acknowledges that I do not want to order from the umpteen amount of loose leaf ads they have sent in 5 diff mailings BUT...and here's where their mail fraud begins...it goes like this: 'But, if you DID want to purchase something, what would it be?' You are required to answer as part of the eligibility on going forward in the PCH sweepstakes. This is not just a 'clerical error', it is a planned criminal act printed in the voluminous literature it sends. Trouble is, you have to send this proof forward so they can begin their mail fraud.
Then the article arrives which you DID NOT ORDER ..."but if you did..."
We are then expected to subsidize this criminal firm by sending or trying to send it back. Its a win-win situation for them. They don't pay the postage back and the billing letters are beginning .
In my case, I just throw the letters and threats, unopened in w the unordered, unwanted merchandise. The threats are commonly used by such sleazy people, together with outside warnings on the envelopes, officious looking printed phrases etc. And I am not worried. If they want their merchandise back, they can PAY THE POSTAGE! IF they take legal action as I'm sure those bills infer, there's one question the courts will ask: PROVE IT !
