I used to get tons of forwards like this all the time, I checked them too, but with a twist. I forward the correct info about it being fake back to the person that sent it and to everyone they sent it to, yes this sounds harsh, but all my "friends" quickly learned to not send forwards like that to me. Hopefully they also learned to check stuff out as well.
I know, I'm a stinker...
