    I think this is the key line that regardless of whether BMW is involved or not, it's still junk mail.

    Nah, just give them your SS number, your bank account number and PIN and they will not only give you the car, they will deposit $40 M Nigerian in your account (for a small cut of course)
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    We are all winners!

    I am going to donate mine to this year's rally charity. Am also waiting for the 15 million Euro's I won recently. When it arrives it's going to Ride for Kids. It's been a while since they sent the announcement. Maybe I'd better include this in my will.

    As a general rule I figure I'm not a winner of any contest that I have not entered. This may have cost me a sizeable commission for helping some Russian, Nigerian (insert other nationality) businessman or deposed dictator get money rightfully his who is willing to share his wealth with me... but hey that's just the kind of guy I am.
