Is this spam from board members?

Not trying to step on anyone's toes so if this is legit I'm sorry. I just received this e-mail and note the To: field isn't even my address so I don't know how I got it.

Subject:
Columbia House - DVDTalk Referal

Hello, i see that you just signed up for columbia house, would you mind
doing a deal with me. If you send me your address and name I can say I
refered you and in return I will send you my name and address and then we
can submit them to columbia house and each get 2 free dvds plus S+H for
refering someone. It works I have done it a few times before, you just do
the following:

send an email to: [email protected]

with my name and addres and say you refered me and would like 2 dvds for
free for the "Refer a Friend deal". And list the dvd's you want in the
email, I have gotten 12 free dvds so far, Lemme know.

Thanks!

I don't know how they got my e-mail address because I get ZERO spam. This is the first solicited e-mail I've ever gotten so do you guys think this is legit?

Thanks
