4) Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Always be mindful of what's going on around you and be conscious of your intuition. If something doesn't feel/seem right, then it probably isn't.

6) Last but not least, be modest. If someone tries to rob you....let them have it, don't fight back....your number one concern is safety....not your material possessions. Your life is priceless.
