What I do not understand is what they can do with the details just provided. Unless they really are going to contact you and propose a scheme like Nigirians do...

These fake jobs can vary a lot, typically one main task is processing stolen money. Sometimes it is other things too, like parcel reshipping, or they scammers will take out credit cards using your personal information. Some of these fake jobs can lead to trouble with the police, so best avoided.

Sam,
The "From" address is trivially easy to forge, it doesn't mean that they've cracked anything.. don't worry about it :)
