    I received one of these scam "I need money" emails from a friend and immediately realised that her computer had been hacked. I replied telling her so.Now I have received another email from her with a new email address saying that since she was hacked she had been unable to receive anything at the original address, she thinks everything went to the hackers. I am just wondering whether my response to the original email has put me at risk and if so what should I do bout it or is it too late.

    Have you called your friend to confirm if she sent you those emails, or are you assuming that she sent them?
