419 Scam Example: "SWISS LOTTO / GESELLSCHAFT SCHWEIZER ZAHLENLOTTO / MRS.RUTH MEYER"

Emails sent by "SWISS LOTTO / GESELLSCHAFT SCHWEIZER ZAHLENLOTTO / MRS.RUTH MEYER" are part of a scam (fake lottery) run by criminals. While there is a real Swiss lottery, it does not notify winners by email or tell them to contact claims agents who use an email address using a free webmail account. The purpose of the scam is to trick victims into making advance payments to the criminals.
