My first received scam e-mail

I know it's rare in this day and age, but until now I have never received one of these e-mails. Now I have:

Greetings,

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Bank Check of
($2,000,000.00 USD) I did not hear from you since then,so i deposited
the Check with FedEx Delivery Service, in West Africa. I will be
travelling out of the Country for a 3 months course and I will not be
back till the end of July.

All you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery service
immediately, for the delivery of your check, please note that, I have
paid for the Insurance and delivery charge, so the only money you have
to send to the FedEx company is $250 USD for their immediate action,
being the security keeping fee of the company so far.

Contact: Dispatch Director
Mr.Patrick Oloye
Email Address: patoloye@8u8.com
Telephone Number: +234 - 807-497-6463

Please make sure you call or contact them via email immediately you
receive this mail with your Complete Postal / mailing address and
telephone number, to avoid any complication or difficulty in the
delivery and remember to send them their $250 USD for their immediate
action, so as to avoid reaching the expiring date.

Yours Faithful
Miss Princess Claudia

It fails on so many levels

The only thing wrong with the email is that he spelt his name wrong,Mr.Patrick Oloye, he should have spelt it Mr Patrick I lie or just liar,

That would have been too obvious, considering how 'believable' the rest of it was

he could have signed it THE,LION KING

lol, yeah

I was feeling left out all these years and then bang! I'm offered 2 million dollars pursuant to a conversation that never took place to begin with....

What is annoying though is that my address has obviously made it to the scamming lists

Lucky it's just a throw away one.
