What will Jehoovah Witnesses do when many R&S atheists begin to ask them for money?

Jesus commands that they give to anyone who asks them:

"Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." -- Matthew 5:42

They will be forced to disobey Jesus, or leave R&S, or face financial ruin!

    I've never seen a rich JW, so, it's probably moot.

    When giving such aid, whether to fellow Christians or to unbelievers, we are under no Scriptural obligation to give to a lazy person who seeks to take selfish advantage of his Christian generosity.

    There are hordes of professional paupers who are known to use every art of deception so as to appear needy and to stimulate sympathy for themselves.

    Also (Brian) we have lot's of Brothers and Sisters that are rich, I'm not rich but in my Congregation we have a few that are.
