WARNING: ITU Pop-UP for PCH Sweepstakes

  • Chris/Rudy,

    I hope it's ok that I post this warning about your PCH advertisement pop-up. If not, and you have to delete the thread before this warning gets out then do what you think is appropriate. I'll have no problem. Hopefully some of the guys will at least get to see this warning ASAP.

    At around 2 AM I clicked on the ITU 247 pop-up to enter the Publisher's Clearing House PCH contest. I entered my name, address, etc., and proceeded to make it through their maze of offers. There were a couple of items I was thinking about ordering along the way. I clicked on them to add them to a cart. Once I thought I was about finished with the process, I clicked on a link to finalize my "potential" order, but it took me to another "real expensive" offer. At that link there was no way out of the link, so I had to close the site out without being able to see a finalized invoice before I agreed to make a purchase. I never dreamed that an order would go through. Wrong! This morning I received an email from PCH with my order. There was no order number or itemized list w/shipping or anything. Just a note that my order would be mailed out w/i two weeks.

    Beware! There is no way to cancel your order w/o the order number and you never get one until the stuff arrives. You never get what your total on the order is until the stuff arrives. You can't email or call them because they have a disclosure in their FAQ that says it is nearly impossible to cancel an order. It also says their return policy will refund you for the order, but I really never ordered anything because I didn't provide info for payment. What this really means is that they will send me stuff aong with a bill and the only way to get rid of it will be to ship it back at my own expense. There will be NO pre-paid return label enclosed. I would recommend that my bro's here on the site be very careful with this "shady" operation.

    There are literally thousands of similar complaints and more ref PCH on the internet. Just Google it if you want to see.

    Buyer Beware!

  • We have nothing to do with that. Those are advertisements on the site and every website has ads. Sorry to hear about your experience, but that is something we have zero connection to.

    I know that Chris. Zero liability on your part. Just want the guys to know BEWARE. PCH got into trouble years back before everything went internet, but it looks like they're back up to their same old dirty tricks.
