Spoofed/Hacked Email Scam Impersonation Scam

Beware emails coming from -

I received an urgent email from the scammer. The person spoofed my boss's name (with a personal email address-, sent to my work email address with my name addressed.

They made an urgent request for me to purchase apple $600 gift card within 10-20 mins. Once purchase was completed, I sent them a screenshot of the gift card with redemption code. They sent me another email for a $900 purchase for apple store gift card. I realised that things were amiss and filed a police report.
