The easiest and best thing to do is report it to the email admin of the person who sent it to you. If they use a yahoo.com email, forward the message to firstname.lastname@example.org, if gmail.com, forward it to email@example.com, etc.
You can also report it to the authorities if you want to be proactive, and which authorities will depend on which country you live in. In the US, the Secret Service specifically investigates this type of fraud. Also you can report it to the Internet Crime Control Center (formerly the Internet Fraud Control Center.
