Hello,

If somebody is trustworthy (everybody trusts him/her because he/she is reliable), do we call him/her a trusted or trustworthy person? Is there any difference between "a trusted person" and "a trustworthy person"?

    He's trusted - they trust him.
    He's trustworthy - they should trust him.

    He may be trustworthy and not trusted at the same time!
