Ampang Gleneagles Hospital Email Hoax

I've been receiving the following email about a deadly perfume sample every now and then ever since last year:

Subject: FW: News from Ampang Gleneagles Hospital Important news to pass it on Please spend 1 minute and read on... News from Gleneagles Hospital (Ampang) URGENT !!!!! from Gleneagles Hospital Limited

Seven women have died after inhaling a free perfume sample that was
mailed to them. The product was poisonous. If you receive free samples in the mail such as lotions, perfumes, diapers etc. throw them away. The government is afraid that this might be another terrorist act.
They will not announce it on the news because they do not want to create panic or give the terrorists new ideas. Send this to all your friends and family members.

Warmest Regards,

Resource Department

I did a check at the Ampang Gleneagles Hospital website and there they confirm that it was a hoax. Read here at their website.
