Eviction via Spam?

I thought I had seen every possible genre of spam, but being evicted by email is a new one. It came to my iCloud email account, which could probably use some better spam protection.

Eviction Notification,

Please be advised that you are obliged to
vacate the living space you occupy until March 7, 2014, 11 a.m.

If you do not vacate it in the specified terms,
the court will have to assign the forcible eviction for April 27, 2014, 11 a.m.
If nobody is home we will not be responsible for safe keeping of your belongings.
Besides, if you fail to comply with the requirements of the court bailiff
you will be fined for up to 200 minimum wage amounts
with a subsequent doubling of the penalty amount
and can be made criminally or administratively liable.

The details of the circumstances that caused the judicial decision
of eviction are attached herewith.

Of course, there’s a fishy Zip file attached.
