Possessing money may also be indirect evidence for the lack of honesty etc.
Even from the Christian religious perspective the common-sense
(non-empirical) response is mixed:
possessing money was seen by some believers in predestination as a sign
that you were among the elect
but the New Testament does say that love of money is the root of all evil
But I know of no empirical reports on this subject.
