Winners of Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes

Has anyone under 50 years old ever won the sweepstakes? i dont think so. I think they are all paid actors, a hoax, a scam. It's all fake. I would love to actually talk to someone that did. I have been putting in entries for 6 months. They send emails saying that if I don't enter today all my entries will be forfeited. I usually play the slots too and I get ripped off every time. I think there should be a serious investigation. I don't believe anything I read from them or from people that claim to win. You can't even talk to the people who have won on the slots or nothing. Someone prove me wrong.
This is part of an email I have received from them.


You are urged to review this correspondence carefully for an opportunity to become a $1O,OOO,OOO.OO SuperPrize winner from Giveaway No. 183O.

Failure to respond in a timely manner will result in automatic forfeiture of any money you may win from this communication. NO EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED!

I won 125 thousand about 5 years ago. Everything you see on TV is true. I was greeted with a check, champagne, balloons and a lot of lights and cameras. The only misconception was at the beginning of the commercial, it say "could you be our next 5 thousand a week for life?". We were on those ads so many of our friends thought we won 5 thousand a week instead of our 1 time, 125 thousand.

I did! It was hysterical! Of course, after taxes it was about 10 thousand. Then we paid off credit cards and had some landscaping done. Everyone at work kept thinking we won the BIG one and asking me what am I doing at work, what are you going to buy etc. So I went to the shelter, adopted a cat, named him Beemer. At work the next day, when I would get hounded about what I'm going to buy, I told them I just got myself a Beemer! (BMW)!

The Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes is not a scam. According to the website of the company, the odds of winning the sweepstake is 1 in 1.75 billion. You might be the lucky winner at some point if you want to keep trying as I believe it is all about luck. Read more details at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publishers_Clearing_House#Odds_of_winning.

They aren't scams. However the odds of winning are very small. If everyone over 18 in the us enters you are going up against millions of people. Keep trying. You might win one day.

i highly doubt it, if it is real the only winners i have seen and heard of has been elderly or people that obviously dont need the money. they have nice houses and nice cars. they dont deserve the money. people all over america are starving and going homeless because they are giving people that already have money more money. and most of the elderly that have supposedly won looked like they had maybe 10-15 years of live left. they pick elderly on purpose.

It's random. Maybe you should try reading their website. It tells you all the rules and terms.

And who are you to say that elderly people don't need money? My grandma is disabled and can't work but she doesn't get enough from the state to live. She had to move in with my aunt because she couldn't pay her rent. Maybe you should learn some facts before you make assumptions. Elderly people are some of the poorest.

Wow you have a really nasty mouth. Grow up little girl. You don't deserve the money. You deserve a good smack in the mouth for that language.
