Social media has become a powerful instrument in spreading awareness among people. A netizen named Trina Marquez used Facebook in order to warn other people against a cunning Petron gas boy who victimized her.
Through a Facebook post on May 1, Marquez detailed how the gasoline boy almost tricked her at a Petron gas station. Although she had her car refuelled amounting to P1,000, the gasoline boy only refuelled it with P500 worth of gas.
In her post, she wrote: “I remembered between 6:50pm to before 7pm nagpa gas ako ng worth P1,000 petron Blaze (yung gauge ng gas ko nasa 1/4 full pa) after refuelling yung gauge ng gas naging Half full lang.”
According to Marquez, her car gauge is supposed to be 3/4 full if the gas boy refuelled it with P1,000 worth of gas. Believing that there’s something fishy going on after checking her gas gauge, she asked the gas boy for an official receipt. Her suspicions grew stronger after the gas boy was unable to provide a receipt saying that it was already thrown in the trash.
The gas boy’s alibi didn’t convince Marquez so she decided to ask for a copy of the receipt from the cashier. However, the cashier failed to track such transaction after 30 minutes.
Marquez then directed her complaint to the supervisor who asked for her contact details and advised her to come back the next day.
The following day, Marquez was informed by the supervisor that the gas boy admitted what exactly happened yesterday.
“Then before 11pm kanina the supervisor texted me, umamin na si gasoline boy. Dinaya nya ako P500 worth lang at hindi 1K yung gas ko,” Marquez wrote in her post.
