A $10 million class action settlement with Publishers Clearing House is as deceptive for consumers as the company’s million-dollar sweepstakes pitch, according to state attorneys general who also are suing the company.
“This settlement is as much of a sham as the sweepstakes mailings,” says Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. “This proposed settlement is a mere drop in the bucket of the tens of millions of dollars consumers have spent in response to Publishers Clearing House’s promotions. We’re going to formally object to the settlement and to the mailing soliciting members to this agreement.”
