That's not the garage. That's the back office. That one is hard to keep cool.

Anybody you do anything with, trying to contact you. Hackers have gotten really clever making their e-mails look legit.

Earlier this year, I had someone trying to convince me I was being evicted by e-mail. Wasn't buying it for a second! Not a single 1 of the 5 I got. Googled the 1rst & found that there's a scam out there to get you to download a document and the minute you try to open it to read, it's catching all your passwords and other sensitive stuff off your computer. They were even possing as a legitimate lawfirm, that was one of the first to post it was a scam and they were not involved.

I think she should learn to do that professionally. She'd be good at it.

Have you yet to learn that sarcasm doesn't translate well on the net, Galeon?
