Proverbs 20:16

Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.

Anyone who is foolish enough to make financial guarantees for people they do not know, is a bad credit risk. If we have any dealings with them, we are to be sure they put up plenty of collateral, so that we will be protected in case they renege on the loan or go bankrupt. The advice is especially true if the stranger is an immoral person.
