This us an example of a standard, albeit brief, lottery scam message. As is often the case, it uses the name of an established company (Norton4Finance) that in fact has nothing to do with the scam and does not run a lottery. The broken English and irregular punctuation is another dead giveaway: this was not written by a native speaker and is not the product of a legitimate business.
