Hi all,

Publisher's Clearing House is advertising that it is sending out "real checks". Upon receipt of this bit of trash mail, I turned over the check, and clear block lettering it states "THIS IS NOT A CHECK".

Clearly, this is the latest scam foisted upon us by
Publisher's Clearing House. There were possibly 250,000 checks sent out for $100,000 winners. Prizes from $1 to $100K. However, the fine print says the prizes are: one $100K; one $25K; three $10K; ten $2K;
two $1K; two $500; two $100 and 7,500,000 @ $1 each.

How many elderly Americans (north & south) are going to take these checks to their bank to cash them?

How long is it going to be before we Americans have had enough of this b.s. and stop PCH, American Family and Readers' Digest from perpetrating this nonsense on the public?

The AG's last year settled with the leading sweepstakes cos in regards to misleading the public. But they've found another loophole to mislead us.
