Publishers Clearing House - I won a $5,000 bingo game but never received the money.

I diligently went through all the material sent to me by PCH.One piece of material was a bingo game that promised $5,000 if I could complete a row with the numbers on my card.

I did so, mailed in all required material, and never received the $5,000. What I did receive was more and more packages of enticements to buy PCH products. I will not fall into their trap again. I am very displeased with their marketing ploys and think them dishonest.

I even ordered a couple of their products.

They were cheaply made and not worth the price plus shipping that I paid.I am truly pissed!

actually it doesn't say you are a winner. It says "If you have all three numbers, please mail this card in and you will be entered in a drawing to win"...so yeah. Learn how to read.

I work for the company that prints the bingo cards. It doesn't say your a winner. It says place the numbers on the bingo and you COULD be a winner. Proof read the directions MORONS

1st off, I live in a state so "huge" that onr can pass through the entire state in 45 minutes. So, if anyone here wins even just 1000. it is big news and will be on the local news. I have never heard of any pch winner in RI. The letters with someone with your initials in your area is definitely going to win really means someone within your television area which means everywhere that your local channels broadcast to and that can be many neighboring states. I been playing PCH for over 35 years and never won a darn thing. Also, it is common knowledge that the more population in a state, the better chance of a winner from that state....it is why my local powerball is always won by someone from a larger state far away. I repeatedly check pch winners' list, and have never seen anyone from my state as a winner. The bingo game PCH offer, as many others like lotto, slots, etc, will have you play all year long for nothing because they only enter you to win a drawing that happens only 1x per year. The bonus cash on slots does not mean you will win even if you get all the bonus cash symbols, it only mean they will enter you to an additional amount to be gotten IF you win the drawing. The bingo game is ***, I personally know of 2 people that spelled out the word "jackpot" and they didnt win anything as promised. There was a youtube video of winner named Leroy Brown. In the comment section, a person posted that they are the cousin of Leroy and explained that PCH paid Leroy 12 grand to... Show more

I was supposed to be able to get 3 entries for PCH's sweepstakes but when it got to the second PCH entry the program stopped working. This happens frequently with PCH entries. I read the information that PCH says they are not reponsible for things like this happening but I'm just wasting my time. I bought an item from you in 2012 and it was of very poor quality. Some years back I ordered a lot of items from PCH sponsors and as always they were of very poor quality. :sigh

Jane, I got all wound up in happy mode on this too. Then I read more carefully. Getting a winning Bingo card just entered us into a large hat for a CHANCE to be drawn :x
