It is a hoax. It you get one please do not forward it on.

I have advised my friend to check first before forwarding such emails.

What do people gain from creating these hoax emails, if the yahoo email address doesn't exist it's not like they're using the email to fraudulently gather funds.

I just don't get it...

Well, if I was a spammer I would have a field day harvesting all these addresses.

I assume that every time this email is forwarded it also contains the email address of the originator and therefore gets sent back there as well.
