Publishers Clearing House - Told me that I ordered a magazine which I did not.

339 of 387 Publishers Clearing House reviews

Until now I have had fun entering the contests for the dream of making big bucks.I have been unemployed for nearly two years, and am attempting to build my own business.

I do not have extra money for frivolous things. Now they tell me I ordered a magazine geared toward a young woman, I am 60 years old. It is a magazine I never heard of, and would not order anyway because I do not buy magazines. I read books.

PCH will do anything to make money off the public.

Do not respond to their emails.The same can happen to you.

It's fantastic to see such a useful post. I had a good experience filling forms online and happy to share it with you. BTW, if anyone needs to fill out a a form, I found a blank fillable form here .

also just informed I ordered hangers--WTF/! Now I can't get through to their customer service via e-mail. I'm sure now I'll have to call the toll free number and have Apu tell me that "they understand my frustration" once again--I'm so sick and tired of just about everything

PCH is a total scam, period. If you play enough times without purchasing anything, you are automatically blocked from completing a game.Once this scam is uncovered, some people will be spending time with Bubba in jail instead of working at PCH.

Both PCH and Readers Digest lure people into subscriptions by utilizing sweepstakes entries which, if you are not very careful, can cause you to sign up for magazine subscriptions. In the case of Readers Digest, when you do this, they send you a thank you email and say you cannot respond to this email. You have to go to their site and search around and then email them with your order number telling them you did not subscribe. They will then email you back saying you have to wait three days or so for it to hit their computers, etc. The best way to deal with these dopes is to just let the subscription arrive in the mail and when you get the billing invoice, go online and cancel it out. Easy as pie and you also will get at least one magazine before they can stop the subscription. What they really need to do is send you a confirmation email and if you agree that you really want to subscribe, you click the link, etc----just like may online newsletter sites. But, if RD and PCH don't mind sending out bad subs, then I don't mind getting free magazines.
