I've posted this scam under Advanced Fee Fraud rather than the Charity forum as this is not a charity related scam. If you receive this scam email in your inbox simply delete or ignore it. There is no trunk box containing cash. There is only endless demands for the payment of fake fees.

Subject: Greetings from Haiti
From: bruce roberts <[email protected]>
I am Major Bruce Roberts of the United Nations Armed Forces here in Haiti, I am a very close friend and personal adviser to the Haiti President Mr. Rene Garcia Preval. Following the Earthquake that struck Haiti, so many people where killed and that unfaithful day I was at the president's palace having some important discussions with him. When the Earthquake struck, the presidential palace was seriously damaged and we managed to get out of the place alive and unharmed and all telecommunications facilities where damaged due to the damages caused by the earthquake.
The president Mr. Rene Garcia immediately contacted me and asked me to assist him move out all his funds which he stored in his safe in his presidential palace. The president Mr. Rene Garcia is a very corrupt government and he owns so many companies in Mexico and Jamaica, bank accounts all over Switzerland while his people suffer and die in poverty. I immediately deployed some of my close military personnel to move all his funds out of the presidential palace to avoid the outside world (western world and other government authorities) from knowing that he has this huge amount of money in his custody. I and my fellow military personnel immediately went to the president palace and we recovered 4 big trunk boxes each containing $13.6Million (thirteen million six hundred dollars) each. I personally kept one of the trunk box for myself (containing $13.6Million (thirteen million six hundred dollars) unknown to my military personnel and the other 3 boxes we immediately transported them out of Haiti through United Nations Delivery means to the president's business associate in Austria according to the president instruction. I informed the president that the other box has been damaged by fire in his palace and he beleived me and asked me to clean up the building so no one will know about this whole situation.
Now I have in my custody a total sum of $13.6Million (thirteen million six hundred dollars) which I want to transport out of Haiti to you in your country via very secured United Nations freight means. I will give you 30% from this total $13.6Million (thirteen million six hundred dollars) for your assistance, I will have 65% for myself, 5% we shall donate to the people of Haiti for humanitarian aids. Please keep this information highly confidential between us and respond back to me with your telephone number via my personal e-mail; [email protected] so we can discuss better on how I will be transporting this box out of here to you. Thank you and bye for now.
Major Bruce Roberts.
