Why care if you can trust them or not? 

Maybe, they just know you, because you're wealthy and want to have some...

Those friends won't make you happy...

If you're really, rich, you can buy your friends' familes.

Kinda invasive of their privacy, they won't like it... and not everyone wants money...

No, getting rich means being successful in making money. Controlling others counts as some kind of majestic force...

Maybe that's the way you'd think, but consider you really were rich, it'd be nothing special for you to be rich, so, you wont be as exited about it as you probably are now.

Anyway, if you like a person, you won't care about that very persons objectives anymore, I think you'd be fine with that as you probably could efford it. There's neither wrong nor right, and the fact of others being envious of you because of money will always be given if you're rich, as we live in a world full of materialism...
