Hello OUR,

My name is Ada and I am a fashion designer. I recently moved to a new state with my husband and as a result, I am short of friends and customers. Due to my type of business, I am very quick to make friends especially with females so as to expand my brand and increase my profit. Few months ago, I met a client who became a friend and patronizes me a lot and has also given me almost 70% of my customers but to my surprise she turned out to be someone else other than what she portrays.

On her social media accounts like bb, WhatsApp and Instagram, she always puts up religious quotes and updates like “It is good to serve the Lord” or “One with God is one with majority” and to the best of my knowledge, she was a devout Christian which is why I brought her close to my home and introduced her to my husband.

About a week ago, I sent a dress I made for another friend (who lives in the state I used to reside in) through my Christian friend since she happened to be visiting that state and after the person collected the dress, I got a distressing phone call. My other friend called asking if I was close friends with the girl and I replied “not really, she’s just a client” so I could get the gist. Then she replied “Thank God! Because her ways are not straight”. She went on to say that the girl is a PIMP and had even tried to recruit her for some deal sometime in the past.

This information shocked me to my toes and has left me confused. My first thought is to keep my distance. But then what about my business? If I cut her off, won’t my business suffer? Since she gave me 70% of my customers? At the same time, being associated with someone with that kind of reputation isn’t really the best especially for a married woman. What do I do?
