    in recent months has started living an extravagant lifestyle from what we are used to

    He’s splashed out on an A class car, brand new top spec kitchen, holiday in Vietnam alongside ramping up his nights out and number of stag do’s he attends. He started a new job in London which see’s him living there through the week and is also the treasurer of his footie team

    Do the SMB have any advice on

    A) Should we approach the subject with him to check he’s ok, not in financial trouble etc

    B) query where all the money is coming from

    Or should we just mind our own business

    Your mate splashing cash left, right and centre makes you think he's in financial trouble?

    Surely, the amount of stag dos someone attends is determined to some degree by the number of mates getting married?

    Probably an inheritance...

    Happened to a mate of mine, inherited well over 40grand and it lasted him about 9 months. Fancy holidays, new car and threw money at his new lass.

    Never mentions any of it now

    started a new job in London - better salary presumably?

    Mentioning he's the treasurer of the footie team....are you suggesting he's skimming money?

    Jokingly ask if he has won the lottery, then take it from there.

    The bit in red seems to be the most obvious explanation, no?

    But now he's flash, you think he's having money trouble. It doesn't make any sense, sadly.

    Couldn't think of owt worse personally. I dodge them if possible.

    Nowt wrong with asking imo.

    If he says mind your own business, it's clear he's a drug dealer or a rent boy.

    Unless he’s the treasurer of Sunderland I doubt his Sunday league teams finances are going to stretch that far.
