Dear Citizen,

We are contacting you on behalf of a local Traffic Violation Bureau.

Our cameras have detected that the driver of the vehicle associated with your personal number on March 10th, 2016 has committed a violation of the rules with a code: 49757
Unfortunately, we will have no other option rather than passing this case to the local police authorities.

Please, see the report with the documents proofs attached for more information on this case.
Details in the email vary from message to message. The payload is Teslacrypt ransomware, as see in this earlier spam run.
