Scam - a never ending story

I've just received the following scam: 

-----Ursprüngliche Nachricht-----
From: MR DAVID JACKSON (could be John Doe es well) [] (interesting, that a French cloud provider is used - see @hosteur on twitter)
Sent: Thursday, 6th of Feb. 2014 17:09
To: undisclosed-recipients
Betreff: Label/Receipt Number: RT0948819142HK (let's bet if there is a receipt number like this)

Dear customer, (I'm not his customer)

We attempted to deliver your item (I don't have an item to be delivered) containing a UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA (I've just tried to contact, which seemed to be impossible) ATM card worth $800,000.00 at 08:58 am on 18th January, 2014. Which was deposited by the global security finance company? The delivery attempt failed because nobody was present at the shipping address provided, so this notification has been automatically sent to you. You may arrange redelivery by sending us an email via this email address
( or you can request for a telephone number to the ups agent in charge of your parcel currently in the United States to pick up the item at the United States Post Office indicated on the receipt (or travel to Mongolia). If the package is not scheduled for redelivery or picked up within 48 hours in receipt of this message, it will be returned to the sender (that would be a great idea).

Label/Receipt Number: RT0948819142HK
Expected Delivery Date: 22nd January, 2014
Class: Package Services
Service(s): Delivery Confirmation (not delivered)
Status: Notification sent

Kindly provide your full names, address and telephone number to ensure safe and fast delivery to your door steps.

Thank you,
C 2014 UPS United states Post Corporation Direct email: (oh, it's United Paceless)

I guess we forget this scam - please don't try your luck, you might loose your money.
