When I questioned the claim agent how would I know if they would not place a stop on the check they sent, his reply was that they would send a cashiers check in the amount of $ 255000.00 on Saturday June 1, 2013. The check they sent in order to cover processing fee was from: Golub Corporation 461 Nott Street Schenectady, NY 12308 and the bank was: Key Bank of Maine @ One Canal Plaza Portland, Maine 04112


I received a letter as an official notice which confirmed that I was a 2nd prize winner in the second category of the USA Mega (under the international Sweepstake) draw held on February 18, 2013. The serial number 2923534 attached to my name matched the first five lucky winning numbers 17-22-39-40-48 and subsequently won $255,000.00

Mage-capital financial services have been assigned by the international sweepstake organization to inform me about my winnings and payment that will be made by a certified check, which will be delivered by special courier company.

Enclosed was a check # 2981584 of $4,685.00 from Golub Corporation 461 Nott Street Schenectady, NY 12308.

The Key Bank of Maine from Portland Maine 04112 was the bank on the check.

This check was provided to help pay the processing fee in the amount of $3,850.00

I was then advised to contact claim agent: Harry Douglas @ 1778-938-6541 Monday-Friday; 10am-7pm and 

Saturdays 10am-4pm ET to start claim processing and activate my winning check.

I was advised not to act on this notice until I contact the claim agent to avoid cases of misappropriation and mishadling of winnings.

"We are very pleased and excited for you".

I called the claim agent on 05/30/2013 and he advised me to go to the bank and withdraw $3,850.00 in cash and take it to Western Union, and call him again with instructions where to send this money. 

I questioned him as to how would I be sure that they wont place a stop payment on their check once I take the money out and send it to them. He replied that they would never do that.

After speaking to him I went online and entered Magecapital Financial Services and got the Rip-off reports as many as 37 and counting.
