No, it is actually a pretty interesting spam email which I received.
The emails pretend to come from New York State “Department of Motor Vehicles” and informs the recipient that he/she violated the speed limit .
In order to see more details, a form hosted on a website should be accessed.
The interesting part in this email consist in the back-end of the scam.
The deobfuscated code looks like in the next picture:
Basically, the browser will be redirected via an invisible IFRAME to a Russian website (which is now offline) and probably tries to download some malware.
All Avira products detect the obfuscated code as ’JS/iFrame.NV [virus]‘.
We advise our readers to never respond to such emails in any way. Speeding tickets come exclusively via regular post and never by email.
