No, I do no longer trust him not to be gullible.  

Unfortunately, I allowed my reptile brain to have control.  That doesn't happen often. 

But thanks for the heads-up.

Do you trust him not to be gullible?

Leaving aside the fact that this is a very old chain email and that it has been documented, there are several indications that it was not legit:

Does not say How he got the info from Norton
It is urgent but does not have a date for the attack to start.
It asks to forward it.
There are no links to a reputable source to corroborate the information.

There are more, but those should be enough.
