According to different styles/occasions, you can choose from any one of the following:

1.Ancient Chinese: How can a person be trusted?
2.Ancient Chinese style: How can a person be trusted haphazardly (easily)?
3.Modern Chinese (direct): Do not trust others.
4.People, do not trust him/her. (This is a game in ABCDBA style.)别人(other people, or man), 人别is (people do not).
5.Adage/Proverb style. 3 syllables also. (Trust no man.)
6.Modern, direct, long but full in meaning. Do not trust others easily.

Anything please contact me. Thank you.
