Do they think I'm Brian F****ing Coleman

I got this email through the post today, I kid you not.
Hi Roger,I hope you had a great bank holiday weekend and you enjoyed all the lovely weather, long may it last :)
My name is ******** and I've been tasked to approach some of London's finest bloggers to offer something which may be of interest (financially, at least!). I'm writing on behalf of gettaxi.co.uk and they're offering £50 worth of free taxi rides to sites like The Barnet Eye who are willing to review their free London taxi app. If you're interested, here's how I'm hoping it'll pan out:
- Download the Get Taxi app (Free), and give it a go. Let me know when you've done it and I'll send you £50 in free taxi credits to test it out -  all we'd need is your mobile number once you've downloaded it to your iPhone, Blackberry or Android device.
- Post your thoughts, experiences and a decent review on barneteye.blogspot.com. 

*NOTE: They don't "require" a link, but a "no follow" link would be appreciated so people can click through to the website easily, enhancing the user experience. You're welcome to mark the review as "sponsored" or as a "paid review" etc.
- As compensation for your time, you will receive £50 worth of free taxi rides in the London area.
It's as simple as that, but the goodies don't stop there… 
... An additional £10 will be sent to you via PayPal if another website or blog owner reviews the app and references you. (So spread the word)
- On top of all this, if any readers download and use the app as a result of your review, you will be given an extra £3 voucher redeemable on the next taxi ride (currently there's no limit to the amount of these you can claim).

Lastly, any customer that downloads the app off the back of your review ALSO gets a free £3 contribution towards their first taxi ride - You'd be welcome to mention this in the review as an incentive. 

Let me know if you're interested and I'll run you through the finer details of how it all works (it's all very straight forward).
Having tried it personally, and it's clear that they've put a lot of love and thought into it. GetTaxi is successful in other countries and they're really hoping it takes off here in the UK too, hence the willingness to put their hands in their pockets and invest in getting some reviews from great bloggers like yourself.
