I want to complain about the package I received from Publishers Clearing House - # 3029 5753 9994 - I did not order this. I do not want this and I do not want to pay postage to send this back. I will never order from Publishers Clearing House again if I am going to be sent packages that I did not order.

Beware people!

I just received an order which I placed some time ago. The payment is already past due upon receiving the invoice. Also the product is damaged and no explanation for handling this type of problem. Now I am faced with a bill past due and a product that's unusable. I would like a number to contact someone regarding this problem.

I am providing the order number 1033 6733 2232.

I got an email from PCH thanking me for my order of a mag or something of Beetles things. This was August 4th/5th.2009. I did not order anything from this place. I have been so disgusted with pch all this year. I get emails everyday and when you try to just do the "entering for the contest of money"' you have to go thru all this marketing selling crap that I never want. PCH has gone to the dogs for sure. I wrote an email. but I did it on the wrong thing. THen this week I got a box from PCH and I wrote it on the pkg with red marker that I did not order anything and do not want it. And returned to sender. If for some way you have taken this money into payments I will not pay you. I will take you to court. I am sick and tired of your crap. . Iss this place so hard up for money that you have to falsify these orders? Or paying someone on comissions that are doing the falsifying? I want nothing from you or yours.

The product I ordered did not work as the add says it will. PCH says it guarentees it's products and I want to send it back but cannot find any instructions for returning merchandise. They seem to make it as hard as possible . Will not be ordering anything else from them.

publishers clearinghouse - untimely mailing
Publishers Clearinghouse
610 SE 5th Street
United States
Phone: 5415649799

Received in Mail Sept. 22nd, 2009 a sweepstakes entry with check envelope to be delivered on Sept. 8th, 2009.
Is this why no one wins because their entry wasn't received in time?!!
This is not the first time this has happened. Why is there no phone number to contact PCH?

I am sick of getting stuff from PCH. It isn't even for me! They make it very difficult/impossible to contact them and ignore instructions on returned mail. They are a vile scurge on the world. Thank you America...another fantastic export!

Hello This comment is for Publishers clearinghouse sweepstakes

I was recently notified by one of your officer that I was being sent two round-trip airline tickets, irrespective of the outcome of the sweepstakes winner. But, I am apparently still in the running for that sweepstakes
what he did not tell me was when I could expect those tickets to arrive.
I assume he has my name and contact information. But, to be sure

my name and contact information are as follows

Pch.com - diverted to another site to create new product idea
United States

pch.com sent invitation for its sweepstakes for $10 Million Dollars. But when trying to fill out the form, I was diverted to an area to provide a suggestion for creating a new product idea. Once I made up something, the next area detailed how that company charges $15 Thousand Dollars, providing details on how many products/applications have been approved, etc. I was not allowed to get out of that area and never received confirmation that I had even registered. Shame on pch.com...what a scam!!

Why do you consistently send me invitations to submit entries to your many many contests, but then deny me the right to submit my entry? This is becoming very annoying and clutters my in box immensely.

I was contacted by publishers clearing house thanking me for my order and they would be sending my order and billing me for it. They didn't give me the courtesy to tell me what I was supposed to have ordered. I responed to them telling them I DID NOT order anything from them and not to send me anything and not to send me a bill. Today Feb 4, 2010 I recieved a under the bed storage box for womens shoes. Now I can't find any way to contact them to return this item to them. Can anyone give me an address.e-mail, or phone number to contact PCH. Oh I also deleted them from my computer.

I ordered a book from PCH. I got a notification that my Indian Head coins were being sent. I called but it was too late to stop the order. I then had to pay out of my own funds to send the items back to PCH. No reimbursement. No apology.
I also ordered a 4x little magazine about diabetic recipes for my brother in law. I got one issue and never got anything else. It was paid for in advance.
Don't order from PCH. They rip you off and don't even have the decency to apologize or try to make it right.
