I received the same e-mail 5-07-07. I did respond, and haven't heard from anyone.
What would they have to gain? I didn't send any money, didn't include SS# bank account #'s nor did I give home address. So actually what did they have in mind?

Well the address gives it away Stamford is a small town in Lincolnshire which is about 160 miles from London, so guess what this is a SCAM, plus the prize varys in value from the one I got it was £450,000.00 (GBP) when I could pick up the same modle with full dealer service history for £37,794, to be quite frank anyone falling for this is six cans short of a six pack.
