Simplicity, Not Gullibility

Simplicity does not mean believing whatever anyone tells you and foolishly falling victim to dishonesty and falsehood. That would be gullibility, not simplicity.

Our Sages warned us in this regard: Respect, yet suspect that which is unfamiliar to you (cf. Derekh Eretz Zuta 5).

Rebbe Nachman specifically warned us to be very careful in financial matters (see Likutei Moharan I: 69; cf. Sichot HaRan #281) and to be wary of placing our physical well-being and/or emotional welfare in the hands of “reliable” professionals and “tried and tested” solutions (Sichot HaRan #50).
