Hello I have recently received this warning by email. Can anyone say if it is valid “READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT DELETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave's brother is a very advanced programmer who does computer work

for a living and has a high up status with Microsoft. He

doesn't send these if they aren't real. If he says this is for

real, it for sure is. Be aware.

VIRUS COMING !

Hi All,

I have checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they

are gearing up for this virus!

I checked Snopes, and it is for real. Get

this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS,

FAMILY AND CONTACTS!

You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled

POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK, regardless of who sent it to you. It is a virus which

opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your

computer.

This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address

in his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this e-mail

to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to

receive the virus and open it.

If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a friend,

do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst virus announced by CNN.

It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus

was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This

virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the

vital information is kept.

COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS.

REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US
