Colo. shares Publisher’s Clearing House settlement

DENVER — Colorado is getting $320,000 in a multi-state settlement with Publishers Clearing House over allegations its mailings deceived consumers.

The payout is Colorado’s share of a $3.5 million settlement with 32 states. The settlement stems from allegations that Publishers Clearing House violated a 2001 agreement in which Publishers agreed to change its sweepstakes promotion practices.

Under the settlement announced today, the Port Washington, N.Y., company will need to further restrict certain kinds of through-the-mail promotions.

The company also agreed to screen more of its customers to make sure they are not disoriented, are not making excessive purchases and are not under a misimpression that buying helps win a drawing.
