1...Claim it...No reason not to as long as he claimed to be in the 
contest and you worked him with valid exchanges...Even if he was a 
pirate you should still claim it, and the sponsor of the contest will 
determine the scoring...Hopefully he made other QSO's as well...

2...Not massaging the log if you haven't changed anything...
