Heh, no need to do a Google search...look at the way it's worded. Anyone 
using the sentence "I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get 
to you too urgent" is not a primary English speaker.  "London UK....at 
GUN POINT", not impossible, but a pretty small possibility... ~4000 
firearms robberies in all of England and Wales.  Thirdly, no mention of 
where 'home' is, and finally, why would you drop this on a coffee 
mailing list?   Saw it, deleted it, went about my business.  Heh, but I 
guess the old adage that there is a sucker born every minute holds true.
