    Haven’t won anything from you people for a long long time. Always loved to get a winning letter or affy.

    Thank you,

    Recently won a sweepstakes but the item has not yet been sent after verifying two weeks ago. How long should this process take?

      Hi J,

      Timing on prize receipt depends on many factors. You should contact the awarding agency or company to ask when you can expect your prize, but 4-6 weeks from the time you return your completed paperwork and receive confirmation that you are indeed the winner is pretty standard.

    I was called and told by someone who said they were from the Bureau of Consumer protection. The man said that I have won 2nd place winner from Publishing clearing house from around July of 2015. I have entered some things in the past, and that I never claimed it and that it was being held for me by NAUPA, a liquiation place for unclaimed property. I was given a security claims number. I called them and they said I had won, but that I needed to get a State registration seal first, for about 2,200.00 which would be 0.5 % of 450,000 dollars. Then they will deliver it and I pay them the fee. Sounds fishy to me! Thanks for your help.

      If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. This does not sound legitimate. I would contact Publisher’s Clearing House directly to let them know about this.
