Well, sadly, anymore you can't really trust people any more. Even the ones who look trustworthy may not be. The swindlers are just too good at acting like good people so it is very hard. I think if I was right there and able to watch him then I might but not very likely. It is just hard now days to be trusting.

I have ever, yes, usually when I can see that someone has had car trouble and had to pull over on the highway. This was when I lived in the countryside, and getting help without a cell phone would have meant a very long walk. It's sometimes hard to know who to trust, but we do have to temper that with compassion for those in trouble. Karen

NO WAY! First of all I never answer the door to a stranger because there are too many crazy people in this world!I have learned in the past not to trust anyone except your family.that would be way too dangerous so my answer is no!

I'm not going to give my phone to a stranger because it has a lot of ways by criminals to find out our location by looking at the number of our cellphone.
