7. The fact that it tells you to
forward it to anyone and everyone you know. . . means it's SPAM. If you choose to pass anything (even warnings) on to other people, you should use the BCC option, this way the people receiving it can't see who else you sent it to. It keeps you and those you know safe, even if you do something boneheaded, like forwarding a false warning.

Look out for the rapeseed oil hoax, and others about spiders hiding in toilet rims. There are thousands of these floating around out there.
