'latest virus' on its way

Specs: Windows Vista
I have received an email warning of a virus 'coming' that will wipe the hard drive. Something about a postcard from Hallmark. Is this a wind up or legit?

Where did you receive the email from anyway? I'm hoping this isn't some dodgy anti-virus company trying to shill their product with fake warnings again! Heard enough of that.

Anyway, thanks Tufenuf for clearing it up. I can imagine anything that resembles a card would make for a dangerous virus right now with the holiday season =p
