Dangerous Scam / United Nations Building

1 United States Review updated:

I have seen a lot of scams but this one is dangerous because they are telling people there are millions of dollars in a safe, inside, the United Nations. I forwarded this e-mail to them/ I received no reply.
From 'John Harvey" <>
Dear Friend,
My name is Mr. John Harvey, I am a top American diplomat working under the Untited Nation. I was newly assigned to head the diplomatic sector of the Untited Nation regional office in New York.
The United Nation in agreement with the International Monetary fund all financial sectors involved have agreed to release part of your funds in the amount of (7MUSD) which is inline with the international face mending exercise going on. You may or may not have lost money to some corrupt officials trying to get this funds over a period of time.
( Here is What I think is dangerous)
Your funds have been arranged in a silver trunk box in the United Nations safe room in New York with a high diplomatic immunity coverage which means it cannot be tampered with until it gets to its final destination.
( He then goes on to ask for all of our information, telling us it will be shipped through first class diplomatic means.)
I am no expert but wouldn't this make every nut case thief, who thought there was money hidden in the United Nations, want to steal it?
