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.
Maybe you should forward this fabulous offer to BMW to let them know what's being sent in their name?
I like the suggestion that London is in Lincolnshire - so convincing!
Best wishes (and congratulations),

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...
