Don’t show off unnecessary things like wraps of currencies, luxury gift items, nude or semi-nude pictures on your social networks, these will put you in an unsafe place. Thus inviting unwanted type of people to you during the season. And that is risky as they come as friends meanwhile they are out to devour.

 

FINANCIAL SECURITY
