PUBLISHER’S CLEARING HOUSE

One of my recent major mistakes has been to register online for this sweepstakes. As a result, I’m bombarded on a daily basis by at least three e-mails which require an exorbitant amount of time to move through.

Some of these e-mails call for me to do nothing more than perform a simple search, while others require number selections for lotto-style games. Still others present a variety of items, magazines, plants, etc, for me to browse through in the hope that I’ll make some kind of a purchase.

Sure, I could just ignore these, delete them in a split-second. But, what if one of these is my ticket to winning five thousand dollars a week for life?

They’ve now begun to send me e-mails to alert me that they’ll soon be sending me additional opportunities via snail mail.

There doesn’t seem to be a way to make this stop!

Maybe I’ll start a support group for others in this situation.

….Care to sign up?

  1. OMG!!! I can SO relate…the trouble is, you never win! For years the emails and packages from PCH have invaded my snail and eventually my email. A couple of times I attempted to enter just for the sake of “maybe” it will be me who wins…oh yeah right!!! It takes forever to figure out where to paste what stamps and what do you send back, WITHOUT ORDERING but merely to enter the contest to win. Its made that way so some of us will just say, OKAY I’ll order something, which in reality is the reason they kill all those trees. Usually before I reach that point I’ll get frustrated with the attempt and do what I should have done in the first place..simply toss the package UNOPENED into the trash! Now that is exactly what I do, toss the snail mail into the trash without opening it and delete the emails. Eventually (perhaps?) they will take me off all their mailing lists..well one can live in hope..lol Just my way of saying I TOTALLY RELATE to this post Mr. F.

  2. Bombarded with great promises of riches both via snail mail and email, I’m ready to join the support group, Gary!

  3. Oh, geeze, I signed up for this some years ago. And for that time I too have received these personalized, meant just for me messages EVERY day telling me of riches beyond, well maybe not my wildest dream, but certainly well beyond current circumstances. In the last couple of months I’ve grown lax about responding. And yes, Gary, EVERY time there is a twinge of guilt along the lines of “oooo, that could have been the big one.” As usual, you’re not alone in some forms of foolishness. I’m right next to you or running ahead to forge new nuttiness.
