This is blackmail and/or harassment and/or computer misuse. These are serious criminal offences for which the person could be arrestec and if convicted he/she could be sent to prison.
If you haven't done so already you must report this to the police.
the person is a female based in the Philipines, I have her name, e mail address, and a Id name she uses for collecting payments
what could the police do here in the UK, I want to know how I can stop the e mails being sent
It will be impossible for the UK police to prosecute someone in the Philippines. But if you contact the Met Police Cyber Crimes Unit they should be able to liaise with the Filipino Police to identify this person and/or stop the malicious e-mails being sent.
