"Huge" virus warning

I got an email today which warned of a huge, killer virus that's out now. The incoming email is supposed to be entitled "Postcard from Hallmark", & if you open it an image of a postcard appears, then the virus eats your hard drive. The email asked me to forward it to all my contacts. Right. Since I'm not at all a trusting sort of guy & hopefully not all that naive, I decided to post this & see what you guys have to say. Is this real, or is it bullshit?

Thanks, Nitris

I'll get in touch with the person who sent me the email, & all other recipients of it, & let them all know that it's bogus.
