This scammer writes to me from India to tell me he is called “Sylvester Howard”. He claims I’ve won money from Microsoft and then tells me to contact him on a gala.net email address. Very fishy – or should I say phishy. This is just another scammer who wants to steal money from you. Microsoft don’t hold draws or award programs. Ignore this scammer.
