I have been filling out all of the numerous mailing information PCH sent me including little rub-off instant prize winners. It states if you match you will win $50.00. I had matched at least 3 of them (received in different envelopes). Nothing. Drawing were to be in may, 2011 and June 2011. I have received absolutely nothing but more envelopes asking for me to send back immediately. Today, I received more mail from PCH stating that the prize was to be awarded (different prize) very soon. Please return ASAP and include Mail Carrier Envelope. Quess what, no envelope. Yesterday, I got mailings from PCH stating call this number immediately. Another quess what: number is not in service.

I believe that the Federal Government stopped them from promising winners but this is just as bad. I am going to better business and if need be the Federal Post Office with my complaint. I kept all the mailing and made copies of all the "supposeably winning scratch off". I am tired of this scam and they should be a stop to it NOW>

PCH is a complete waste of time!

Via snail mails from PCH, if you match all scratch off tickets, etc, the deceptive instructions on the game cards will have you believe you won should you promptly "return the winning card by the deadline" However, if you read the rules booklet that they enclose in each mailing, you will discover that the winning card you have completed only wins you the right into a drawing. The online games are also a scam for persons that do not read the terms & conditions and/or sweepstakes information. All of the games are rigged to have you almost win...done deliberately to make you keep coming back. However, if you were to make all matches on, say, pch lotto, you really have not won anything but the right to be entered into a drawing. The pch lotto, bingo, etc, has a drawing only once per year so these priks will have you coming online everyday to play games that you THINK has instant wins and really you play for all year. So what do they have to gain by doing this online? Each and every time someone logs in to their site their online ratings go up and their site increases in value. PCH is a total waste of time if you believe you can win the online games...hell even the tokens when redeemed do not actually be redeemed for anything but the chance to be entered into a drawing...Ever gotten a snail mail containing the message, "someone with your initials in your area is going to win"? everyone of your neighbors got the same mail only each mail has the initials of the addressee...another scam by PCH. As for their products that they sell: PCH is a big affiliate marketer making money via helping companies push their products. You can get the same products alot cheaper simply via buying them elsewhere or direct from the source. Also the majority of products PCH sells are cheap china products that can be bought in any Dollar Tree store for a buck.
