    Anyone think that this thing is one big fraud? I mean, last year, we got two of these things sent to us, and one of them was addressed to a friend of ours that was somehow delivered with our address on it..

    As long as my name is NOT drawn for the jackpot, I consider it a fraud...

    Nah, it's not that.

    It's just the commercials that come off as phony to me for some reason... I figure it might just be an excuse to collect email and snail mail addresses to sell to companys for an easy profit when a person registers for said contest [​IMG]..

    Agreed....

    Maby it should be renamed to what I was originally going to post about... 'Has anyone here actually WON from Publishers clearing house?'

    Just something about those commercials that makes it all seem so phoney for some reason [​IMG]

    They'd have gotten in big trouble by now if they didn't actually give out the prize money.

    Fraud? No
    Opportunistic predators of the American dream? Shoe-betcha

    The whole idea is that the farther along you go in the contest, the more magazines you buy
