If someone calls you up, claiming to be from Apple and telling you that you've won $10,000 for downloading the 10 billionth app in the iTunes App Store, you'd probably think it was a scam too. That's certainly what Gail Davis in the UK thought when it happened to her -- except that it actually turned out to be real. All I can say is kudos to Ms. Davis for recognizing just how unlikely the story was... and for then taking the second call and realizing it was actually true.
