Question regarding email scams.

Hi all. I hope this is the right place to ask.
I have just received an obvious scam email containing a virus. What’s odd is that the email is a direct reply to an email thread I’ve had with a language school employee (essentially it looks like a regular reply to en email I would have sent). I wonder how would the attacker manage to create an email reply to a thread between 2 gmail accounts? (the account sending the virus is different from the account of the legit -language school- account). Should I assume the original account was hacked or can they inject themselves into the conversation?
