Publishers Clearing House has been giving away money for years. In fact, today, December 2nd, you canenter a contestfor 6 prizes of $75 each. The odds of winning are 1 in 325,000.

Those odds are better than winning that big "money forever" prize that so many people enter.

Scammers know the high-profile jackpot and are trying to cash in. They're calling and messaging some of you on Facebook. 

In fact, those are two clues that what you might be going through is a scam. PCH says no one will call you or tell you in advance you won, and no one will demand any money from you.
