Do you know of anyone who has ever won the $1000 a week for life sweepstakes? or any other sweepstakes from Publisher Clearing House? Yea, me neither. Is it a scam? It is absolutely a scam in the most general of senses because it preys on the persons they consider weak. I will give you a perfect example.
I have watched countless videos of these alleged winners and started to notice they all have nice houses in nice areas. I had never seen the prize patrol deliver a prized check to a trailer park or anybody in the hood. It always seems like the winner is someone who does not need it. And here is something else to ponder on. How is it that PCH can afford to give away $1000 a week for life to every winner they select multiple times a year? Hmmm, Maybe from all the suckers falling for all those magazine subscriptions. Is the Publisher Clearing House generating the money from all those ads the participants watch in between every game within the app and pc platforms? Maybe the rest of the states should follow Florida, Rhode Island, and New York and require sweepstakes bonds to ensure the alleged recipients receive their prize.
Not everyone does well on live Television, so how does PCH pick these winners? Are they paid actors? But, like the lottery, I believe certain people are chosen, especially the older ones. Yet, as the old adage goes, “if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Now here is another red flag. PCH claims purchasing a product does not increase your chance of winning. That is a lie! Here is the email I received after I bought a product
Will you look at that! Extra chances to win after a purchase. Think of it this way. Why would anyone give away free money to someone who has never put in any money? Remember, when you watch the prize patrol videos, look at their surroundings. These alleged winners are the ones who already have money. PCH has engineered these sweepstakes to lure in the poor by advertising false hope and dreams.
What Are Your Odds Of Winning The Top Prize
According to the Los Angeles Times, the odds of winning are about 1 in 1.3 billion. Wowzers! that’s insane! Now, what about the power ball? Well, the odds of winning the Power Ball are a lot better. How about 1 in 302 million. But, I tell you what. I’m feeling lucky, so you never know.
Final Verdict: You have millions of opponents doing the same thing if you think about it. How many people do you think are retired or disabled. Some have nothing but time on their hands, so this is what they do every day, which is why the odds of winning are so slim. But in reality, sweepstakes are used more by scrupulous companies like Publisher Clearing House, so I don’t believe in these sweepstakes. I regret joining different sweepstakes in the past because a few of these companies sold my information to third parties who now blow up my phone and email with spam. My favorite saying is “false hope is worst than despair” There are undoubtedly more productive ways to use your time than trying to win the Publisher Clearing House Sweepstakes or any other sweepstakes, for that matter. Been there, done that.
