I have just received this email involving FedEx.
I am sorry to encroach into your privacy through this manner; we have a certified cheque of $300,000 in our custody that belongs to you. This cheque was brought to my desk last week by a lady who gave us your e-mail address to contact you on the delivery. We wait your response soonest.
If only we could stop this illegal practice.

I recognise some of the details you posted, which may be subsequently modified by moderators, including the address and the e-mail. A quick google search will show you it's just one of many.
The prize that I had 'won' was the so-called "Yahoo internet lottery". The idea that a town can be in London and another English county simultaneously is, frankly, laughable.
It's a classic 419 scam. BMW already know about it and have issued warnings BTW.
On a lighter note, I did win a genuine lottery last night - £100. Well done me! Better than a slap in the face, anyway...
