I don't see why you think his account has been hacked.
I wondered about that, but I took it to mean that the uncle clicked a link and entered his account details before asking what the link was about, and so was 'hacked' in that sense, not that hacking was needed to fake the From: header.
There's the question of how the email associated the recipient and sender names, but that just suggests that a mutual friend's machine was harvested for addresses.
Unfortunately it's a 16K model, and a fairly early one at that, which won't run much software

If I have one VCR*, I can record and play shows. If I have two identical VRCs, a new feature emerges, I can duplicate tapes!
One person struggles to assemble furniture because the parts fall over, with two people, one holds the parts while the other joins them together.
*A type of DVR with a long, rolled-up hard drive.
People will still have to type 'amazon.com' into google first, right?
