Got emails from "friends" in June 6 morning emails. Stupidly clicked one and watched it redirect several times, finally stopping on "hogoworld.com" as a link. I immediately shut down and researched it. Google immediately warned that the site may be hacked. They seem to be spoofing one of my friends email address to download their malware.
Just a warning to watch what you click on, even if it seems to be from a close friend.

What email service are you using? Gmail does a good job of sending these types of messages to Spam, even when it looks like the message is coming from someone in your contacts.
