The problem is with Ingres...
For some reason they've assigned you to take activity on yourself - to chase yourself up to see if you are going to buy Ingres.

They are just using salesforce as their contact management system.

They've managed to have lead scoring though. Maybe they are using some internal version of "hot or not", but you came out in the middle.

Did you talk to them any time other than when they gave you your sticker?

Don't think so since even when reading their website I have no clue who they are.

Uh, I used to work at Ingres in days gone by. Maybe they tracked you down through me. ;-)

i would read this as "ingres employees get bonuses for referring leads" or at least for referring leads that pan out. they heard you might be in motion, and figured they'd be in front of the lead-bonus line by throwing your name in the ring.

then somebody fucked up and CCed you on it. lol. :)
