    Publisher's Clearing House Refund Check?

    I got a refund check for $10 from the Publisher's Clearing House today. I never ordered anything from them, so I'm suspicious. There's no fine print on the check, so if I cash it I'm not obligated in any way. I'm still suspicious. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks!

    I don't know why they would "refund" you when you hadn't paid them anything to begin with. Did you look at the back of the check, where you sign it? Sometimes there's something written there that says by signing the check you are agreeing to "x". You could try e-mailing or calling, but I agree, it doesn't sound right.

    No, there was none of that on the endorsement area. The check was accompanied by a change of address card too.

    I did a Google search too, but none of those stories are applicable to my situation. Most of them are about people getting crappy stuff from the Publisher's Clearing House and trying to get a refund.

    Is $10 worth the risk of the unknown? I think I would pass on it, especially if I had never purchased anything through them. Your account information will get printed on the back of the check when you deposit it, so when the cancelled check gets back to them, they will have your account info too. Just something to think about.
