Hi. Can you be more specific? I'm not entirely familiar with Publisher's Clearing House, other than I know that they sell magazine subscriptions. Did you buy subscriptions through them? Why do your children say that you must cancel them?

i AM A WOMAN IN MY 80'S, AND i GUESS i JUST GOT CAUGHT UP IN THE PUBLISHERS cLEARING hOUSE SWEEPSTAKES OR LOTTERIES, WHATEVER THEY ARE CALLED. IT SAID ANY TIME YOU ORDERED IT PUT YOUR NAME IN ONCE MORE TO BE AVAILABLE TO BE THE MILLION DOLLAR WINNER.

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER I REALIZE NOW, AS I KNOW I HAVE MANY ORDERS IN THAT I CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR. HOWEVER, THESE ORDERED ITEMS HAVE NOT YET BEEN SHIPPED TO ME SO I WOULD LIKE THEM TO BE CANCELLED IMMEDIATELY..
