Publishers Clearing House - I’m being told I received an erroneous message indicating my name as the $10,000 winner. What happened?
Try as we might to get things right, sometimes a mistake happens. And when it does, we’re really sorry!
Due to human error, a line of copy in a pop up notice appeared to some consumers and mistakenly included the recipient’s name for the $10,000 prize from Giveaway 8546. Each person who received the incorrect pop up would only have seen his or her own name. The pop up was intended to announce the actual winner, Mark deGuzman of San Jose, CA. As soon as we learned about the error, we immediately took the message down.
We deeply regret any confusion this may have caused and want to assure you that we have taken steps to prevent an error like this from happening again. We also want to assure you that this was not an error in Sweepstakes processing. The integrity of our Sweepstakes for this giveaway remained intact. The only error was the mistaken placement of the wrong name in the pop up message.
Our Sweepstakes participants are very important to us. To thank them for their loyalty and understanding, we automatically entered anyone who received the erroneous message into a special contest in which we will draw 5 winners of $10,000.00.
In addition, each recipient will be given 50,000 tokens. Publishers Clearing House does not alert major prize winners by online notice and we are grateful to those consumers who realized this and brought the matter to our attention to let Stancio Hassan Butler win and receive a PCH Prize Patrol visit in person on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 between 12:00am and 5:00am during the late night hours immediately!
