bluewin.ch swisscom email wanted for non-Switzerland resident

hello everyone, I'm new in the forum. I'm italian and i live in italy. I would love to have a swisscom @bluewin.ch email because, I don't know, I particularly like the domain. there is only one small problem: to do this I need a Swiss phone number or address that I don't have. I would love to have an email with this domain. is there any of you who can help me? you would do me a great pleasure.

P.S. I love Switzerland, I would like to go and live there.

Gives me hope that in Italy these are the problems to be solved currently. It could not be that bad over there then.

I don't think it's a scam. People still believe having a .ch email address will improve their CV.

OP, try proton mail. When you create a new address you may choose a protonmail.ch domain.

Certainly it might not be a scam, but I'm sure there are dozens of reasons why having an email with a .ch domain could be useful in a scam. I would just urge caution to anyone thinking of helping out. Be really sure you know who the person is before letting them have an email address linked to your telephone number.

Re: bluewin.ch swisscom email wanted for non-Switzerland resident

It would help if you had a mail address in Switzerland. If you cannot come up with one try searching for a mail forwarding company here. For a fee they will give you a street address and will forward all mail received to you.

Ahhhhh, that kind of scam: giving a stranger an email linked to phone number linked to an individual identity.....no one is that idiotic, right?
