We just want to warn or let us, Educates the public that NOT ALL THAT SHINES IS GOLD.
In the past years, several States has filed Law suites against this so=called magic kingdom for miss-informations and not telling the pubic the TRUTH on how there deals goes,
We are here to tell u some and wait for the rest of the infos.
We will qoutes from CONSUMMER AFFIARS:

More Charges Against
Publishers Clearing House

Despite its recent agreement to pay more than $21 million in a class-action lawsuit, Publishers Clearing House is still in hot water in at least 30 states.

The states' Attorneys General are suing PCH alleging that its sweepstakes promotions use false and misleading tactics to peddle magazine subscriptions.

Virginia filed against the company yesterday, charging that it tricks consumers into buying more and more magazine subscriptions in the hope that this will increase their chances of winning the sweepstakes.

"For a small group of citizens, many of them elderly, the effect is devastating," the Virginia suit charged. It said that Virginians bought $1.5 million worth of subscriptions in 1997 and that 426 of them spent more than $2,500 each.

Attorney General Mark Earley said the state had tried to negotiate a settlement under which PCH would agree to moderate its mailings but filed the suit after feeling it was being "stonewalled."

The suit charged that the company's mailings sometimes suggest that a company employee is "looking out for" a particular consumer and that just a few more subscriptions will put that person into a winning position. Others appear to "guarantee" a win, the suit alleged.

The flurry of state suits follow complaints by many of the Attorneys General that the February 18 class action settlement is inadequate.

A similar class action suit was settled recently by PCH's biggest rival, American Family Publishers, which agreed to pay $33 million to consumers and $7 million to various states...

We are not telling the public what to do or not what to do, but we think is better to be aware that NOT ALL THAT SHINES IS GOLD OR SILVER.
So what ever one does, just save some money and don't always flow with the promise.


  1. I've been a customer since July, 1977. They are still targetting me, sending offers every day. By continuing to receive offers from PCH is the choice of the consumer. Not like they are holding a guns to our heads. I am 67 years old. I and other consumers like myself, have the choice to continue to be duped or not to be duped by these alleged tricksters. We still have the choice to band together and boycott PCH. If enough
    participants refuse to fall prey to their alluresome offers, we can beat them at their own game by forwarding this item to the news media and our friends and neighbors, putting them out of business. If you are going to do something about this, do it and do it soon. Don't just make idle threats. It would be a shame to see more consumers continue being deceived by offers such as these.

  2. A bunch of Bullshit regardless. PSH is phony!
