DE gets piece of PCH settlement
Delaware, 31 other states and the District of Columbia are getting checks from Publishers Clearing House.
The sweepstakes company's agreed to pay a total of 3 and a half million dollars, of
which Delaware gets 40 thousand, to cover the cost of an investigation into deceptive
trade practices, including mailing promotional materials to elderly and low-income people
that led recipients to believe buying magazine subscriptions from PCH would increase the
odds of the customer's winning the company's multi-million dollar sweepstakes.
Attorney General Beau Biden's office Thursday announced the settlement, which
modifies the terms of a 9-year-old agreement with Publishers Clearing House.
