Has anyone here ever won from this sweep or am I just wasting my time? Also wondered about last year's Dream Come True - haven't seen any postings on that??

I have always wondered about PCH, I use to pay for all those mags until I woke up. It's not for me to say if it's real....I just wish I knew someone who won a prize from them before.

you are probably wasting your time, because of the odds. but you never know. you may not be. they sure make you wade through a lot of ads, dont they?

Just today we got the letter from them telling us to enter to win 1,000,000. It was addressed to my mom because she had the "right initials", and I was just about ready to put it into the mailbox for tomorrow when my uncle told me that it was a scam but I don't know for sure.

There was a winner in my area years ago--it was a guy who had lost his job months before from a plant closing and his family was financially desperate. I think it was 10 million and I was glad he won it because they had already lost their home and car. There was a story in the local paper. I'm sure the odds aren't too good but if you don't mind sifting through all the ads and opt outs--go for it.

Broken 92 - What are your moms initials? LOL - I filled out an entry from PCH a week or so ago online and was told that I definitely had the right initials. (BT)
