This message is an example of the old diplomatic-courier scam. “Robert Newman” is a diplomat, so he can smuggle things through customs without them being inspected. And amazingly he has a big box of cash that is just for you! In reality there is no “Robert Newman” and no big box of cash: there is just a scammer conducting a classic advance fee fraud, and you’re his target.
