I received an email that I had won much money and to only respond to the following email address "". Beware!

This is the first time I receive such an email. The only question I have is how did they get my email address?
After that they asked me £250 Pounds for sending certificate of proof winning and certified cheque.
Here is the last e- mail that I received from them.

Attn: Ahmet Murat,
Congratulations a cheque has been issued in your name,and we have concluded the processing of your document that will facilitate the clearance of your cheque.

These documents have been securely sealed and packed for security reasons which makes it impossible for anyone to view it until its been delivered to you via DHL.

24 hours delivery.
Cost £250 Pounds.

Due to the diplomatic content of your parcel, it will be illegal to ship it without being insured as it will violate the federal delivery rules governing diplomatic parcel delivery. This means payment for the insurance fee must be made before shipment to avoid risk. This is because of some bad experience we had in the past. We can not afford to re-issue your cheque if anything goes wrong. In this case payment for the insurance fee is absolutely compulsory, while the mailing fee should be paid to the above listed delivery company at the point of delivery.

Hope to Hearing From You Soon,and Feel Free To Call.

Williams Bullock.
