Anyone know about this offer?

Just recieved this from a friend and thought I would pass it on for the perusal of the experts here. Is it a scam? I've tried phoning the number and got nowhere.

Hi All,
Sony Erricsson is giving away phones for free. Sony Erricsson is trying word-of-mouth advertising to introduce its product and the reward you receive for advertising for them is a free phone free of cost. To receive your free phone all you have to do is to send this email out to 8 people (for a free Sony Erricsson j200i) or 20 people (for a free Sony Erricsson k400i WAP). Within 2 weeks you will receive a free phone.
(They will contact you through your e-mail address).

What you have here is a classic matrix scheme, or scam as some people like to call them. Usually they will ask you to complete 'offers' with other companies, but there are never enough free gifts to go around.

Is is not even a matrix here

Gandalf is right, its not a matrix scheme, it is just a complete scam. However, in the future, if you see 'Get a free TV/iPod/Laptop' and all you have to do is complete offers and refer friends, that is a matrix scheme. They are a sham, there is an article on the bottom of the link i posted earlier that shows a company making thousands illegally from it.
