I think you have to give this particular Net spam-fraudster a little credit for a sense of humor:
Dear Winner, (they write)
This is to inform you that you have been selected for a cash prize of 1,000,000.00GBP (One Million Great British Pounds) and
a brand new BMW 5 Series Car from International programs held on the 22nd of JAN 2008 in London Uk.
Details follow, until it is signed by the aptly named “MRS Pat Swindell.”
