Weird e-mail

My dad received this today, and he’s not sure what he needs to do next.  Anybody offer any advice?

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Daniel lakele Zuma,a relative to former vice president Jacob
Zuma of South Africa. I got your email address from the web directory
so I decided to contact you.

I am interested in diverting some funds currently floating in the
foreign suspense account of the federal pay office to your account as soon
as possible.

Source of the funds are:

During the South Africa arms deal with French arms manufacturer,
Thales, involvling Jacob Zuma and his adviser, Schabir Shaik, government’s
officials awarded contracts to their own companies, these contracts were
grossly over invoiced. Now the present government set up review panel
to investigate the contract. My cousin (Jacob Zuma) and I lodged a huge
amount totaling US$18.5m ( Eighteen million,Five hundred thousand U.S
dollars) in a finance house in Europe.

I will want US$9.5m (Nine million Five Hundred Thousand) united states
dollars out of this money oversea transferred to your account because
I’m not eligible to operate foreign account because of the present
political situation involving my cousin Jacob Zuma, and I am searching for a
partner abroad. I really want this transfer made as soon as possible
before the government, who have started refunding money from our foreign
accounts track this money. I will be offering 25% for your assistance.

If you would want to proceed with this transaction please reply with
your phone/ number to:
and if you do not accept my
offer please treat with utmost confidentiality.

For more information check and browse carefully all the links in the
website below.

Best Regards,

Daniel Lakele Zuma
