Unauthentic virtue of fasting at the end of the Zul Hijjah

Q: I would like to know if the following about the virtue of fasting on the 30th of Zul Hijjah and 1st of Muharram are authentic:

“Today is the 30th Zul Hajj which is the last day of the current Islamic year 1441. The reward of fasting on this last day, is forgiveness for all sins committed in the past year. Tomorrow will be the 1st Muharram which is the first day of the new Islamic year of 1442. The reward of fasting on the 1st of Muharram is forgiveness for sins which will be committed in the whole of the coming year.”

A: There are other virtues for fasting during the month of Muharram and Zul Hijjah. However, we have not come across this particular virtue.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
