email entitled "POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK"


We just received an alert
 
We are not to open any email entitled "POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK"
 
It contains a virus that will destroy the zero sector of the hard drive disc. This is where vital information is kept.
 
Just throw it away, Do not download it.  

HAS ANYONE HEARD OF THIS, OR IS THIS A HOAX???

The best answer to this is if you were not expecting the email and it is not important, just delete it. Why take a chance. It sounds like SPAM at the very least and doesn't warrant getting read. Especially if multiple users are receiving it. I certaintly wouldn't open it to find out if it was a hoax or not.
