it's not, F-sharp doesnt belong to the A minor scale. The only one i could find is G Be-Bop scale.

Agreed, the half step jumps on the B string don't agree with the minor scale formula, it should be "5", "6", "8" or jump to the 3rd fret of the e string.

I don't have a name for it, so id trust the above poster

Luckily there are no F#s in there.

The closest I know is A Aeolian or A natural minor as some people have already stated. Both scales are the same. I think your friend may have written it down wrong. That scale from the 5th fret is:

|------------------------------------------------5--7--8------
|---------------------------------------5--6--8---------------
|------------------------------4--5--7------------------------
|------------------------5--7---------------------------------
|---------------5--7--8---------------------------------------
|------5--7--8------------------------------------------------

Hope that helps.
