Be careful. Be on guard.

A pretty poor effort, for every genuine PayPal payment you make PayPal emails you confirming your payment and what for.  Not some paypalhelpxxxx gmail account.

I have never considered anyone being daft enough or had enough spare cash floating around to buy *hitcoin (insert obvious character in place of *) or any other crypto currency.  Well one comes to mind who should really known better Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, looks like he has taken bit of a bath in the latest drops.

Hopefully the human scam detector is much better, who ever hears of a gas company giving anything away and more so how did they get your email.  Last time I filled up (today 38 litres £71.78), that $500 could have come in handy).

I hear you. The last time I filled up my Pick-up, it was well over $100.00.
I live in the country so we don't have public transportation that we can depend on.
Avast is probably happy that I'm still doing remote presentations.
On our trip to Texas we spent several hundred dollars on gas and the motel wasn't
cheap either.
