Is Hallmark virus warning a scam or real

Received message from a friend warning of a virulent virus, the middle of the message reads:

"You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK, regardless who sent it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer"

I have tried search on this site but can't find any mention of it.
