In this neighborhood, if you dress in nice-looking cloths, or put on an expensive perfume, they would assume you are rich and then attack you even without minding if you have enough in your pocket or not.
In fact, you will be treating yourself badly if you ever make the excuse of not having any money with you.
They despise rich people severely, so looking as one makes you a target for attack. If you look rich and you don’t actually have any real money on you, then you are in for double trouble because the bad guys will certainly not believe you, no matter how much you swear.
You might end up being stripped off of your expensive clothes and jewelry and even your 100 shilling underpants won’t be an exception!
