Mr. Jose Mark.
Thanks for contacting us regarding the contact you received. As you may have expected, the notification you have received is in fact a scam illegally using our good name in an attempt to build trust and deceive. You have not won a prize from the real Publishers Clearing House and you should not send any money.
At Publishers Clearing House the winning is always free and we would never require any money, tax, fee or payment be made to collect a prize. Winners of $500.00 or more from the real Publishers Clearing House are notified by registered mail and winners of $10,000 or more would be notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol with no advance notice.
We would also like to take this opportunity to provide you with some additional information regarding our sweepstakes that we trust will be helpful to you and your family. At PCH, we are highly concerned about reports of scam artists using our name and good reputation to try and deceive consumers. Let me assure you there is absolutely no connection between the real Publishers Clearing House and the fraudulent party who contacted you claiming to be associated with our company. If you are contacted and asked to pay any amount, for any reason, to claim a prize, you have not heard from the real Publishers Clearing House.
We want you to know at PCH it is never necessary to pay any money to enter, win or collect one of our prizes. At Publishers Clearing House, the winning is always free! A legitimate sweepstakes will NEVER ask you to send or wire money to enter a sweepstakes, claim a prize or to pay a fee, tax or deposit of any kind. If you are asked to send money to claim a sweepstakes prize for any reason, you are being scammed. If you receive a check and are asked to send money back - you are being scammed.
At Publishers Clearing House, we treat the fraudulent use of our name seriously. We keep track of these incidents and work closely with the law enforcement and consumer protection community to share this information. We recommend that you also report this incident to the National Fraud Center at www.fraud.org
