Never let anyone trick you into looking inside your wallet.
Hey guys, usually I am pretty smart in making people think that I am poor down here but the other day I slipped up.
To make a long story short, a police officer tricked me by asking if he could borrow my phone card. I agreed and opened my money belt to get the phone card and as soon as he saw that I had some bills it turned into having to pay a bribe.
I negotiated the bribe down but the moral of the story is never let anyone see into your wallet or money belt. If someone asks you a question which would lead to them seeing what is inside your money belt/wallet make an excuse so that you can do it in private.
