The "weird sender information" in the forward are Headers.
By default, most header informations are kept, except:

,----[ Docstring `message-forward-ignored-headers' ]
| All headers that match this regexp will be deleted 
| when forwarding a message.

If you want all header information removed, try setting 
`message-forward-ignored-headers' to a regexp that matches all headers. 

I leave that as an exercise to you :)
If you know nothing about regexps, 
(elisp) Regular Expressions is a good starting point.

P.S.: If you really can not figure it out, write me an email.
