    ... that they were likely to ask - usually revolving around money. It's difficult to walk more than 10 yards without being spoken too and within 10 seconds they know your whole life - down to your salary paycheck. Some are completely genuine and ask out of interest, however most of conversations we have learned are attempts to get money out of our pocket.
