Is this a scam?

I have received 3 e-mails from a Loretta Goldberg who is apparently from Sky  telling me to update my Microsoft account. I have ignored them as I am not and never have been a Sky subscriber. 

 

Has anyone received such e-mails and are they scams? I would like an explanation.

Very likely a scam as Sky wouldn't know if you have a microsoft account or not.

 

Presumably there is a link they are asking you to follow?  That being the case 100% scam designed to get your personal details.

 

They also won't be from anyone at Sky and are likely spoofed email addresses.

Like you I'm a customer here, Sky Employees are clearly identified as such.

That is a scam one as you should never click a link in any email like this that has arrived out of the blue.
