I have received a scam e-mail originating from a friends e-mail address. The friend knows nothing about it and it seems to target me specifically as I'm currently in the UK .
I have removed all details except the scammers for security reasons.
I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed .
Has anyone else experienced such a scam?
Here is the e-mail history to date

It's quite a common scam. Your friend seems to have fallen for a phishing scam, so the scammer now has access to his/her email account. Usually everyone in the address book gets the scam email asking for money, and the password is changed.
If possible, everyone in the addressbook needs warning.
