ATTORNEY GENERAL ANNOUNCES SETTLEMENT AGAINST PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE

 

Illinois, 31 other states and the District of Columbia, have reached a settlement with Publishers Clearing House that will bring more accountability to its widely known sweepstakes contest.  According to Attorney General Lisa Madigan, the agreed judgment stemmed from an investigation into the sweepstakes giant’s marketing practices of misleading consumers to believe purchasing magazines and other products will increase their chance to win the jackpot.  Madigan said, “Tougher provisions in this agreement will help ensure Illinois residents are not further misled or confused by the company’s sweepstakes promotions.”  Under the terms of the agreement, Publishers Clearing House must take steps to minimize the likelihood that their mailings will mislead or confuse consumers about their chances of winning.  The company also agreed to pay 3.5 million dollars to cover the cost of the states’ investigation.
