Because there has been a lot of home invasions near me Real question: I have 8000 USD in my parents safe If we have a falling out can they Take it? Is there a way I can Protect myself. Other than hiding in glass jars in the dirt. Thank you
Your parents could take your money, and you would have to go to court to prove it. That would be a big expensive hassle. Any bank is safer than your parents' safe. Choose a bank that is insured by the government.
