Dont believe none of those sweepstakes!- its all a scam!- especially the more popular one!- publishers clearing house!!! Its nothing but a fraud! Their scratchouts are bogus! I scratched off 30,00.00 $ just to be told- u didn't win yet!- only if we pick your number! If not u get nothing!- that's fake! If it was the real one or the lottery I would have gotten my money! Shame on them for wasting my time! But never again! Pch.com avoid it!!!!
