People think that the safest place to store their valuables would be in a safety deposit box at their bank. They would be wrong. Here’s a true story about what happened to me many years ago.
About 16 or 17 years ago, as I described in my book The Unchained Man, I was having some financial trouble due to some very stupid things I did as a younger man. I had a sudden increase in income and I was not yet skilled at actually managing money, so I fell behind in some of my debts and taxes. I cleaned all that up many years ago, but even to this day, reflecting on that time in my life gives me some unpleasant chills.
