I'm guessing that the mail came from Google. The robots.txt file doesn't affect whether the files are actually there are not, so any random unpolite bot could already crawl the site. The request would let Google index the site--it feels quite real to me; someone probably found a useful resource on your site, dillonstars, and wished that it was in Google. :)
