What verb do you use about the action of someone who causes you to suffer from a financial loss.
I.e. 1) imagine you know nothing of cars and someone who pretends to be knowledgeable about automobiles and their technical issues, wants to give you a hand to find a healthy automobile to purchase. When you buy the car, after a while you come across some mechanical disorders with your vehicle and find out that the guy had known nothing about the technical aspects of cars and he just lied to you.
2) Let's suppose that you have a six-figure job and every moment is like gold for you. Something happens to you or someone drops by to you at your office and as a result you miss one day which you could gain at least thousands of dollars.
3) when you eat something very detrimental to your health. I.e. you have some digestive problems i.e. an ulcer and you drink lemmon juice or vodka etc.
What these people or conditions or things do to you? How can I describe that?
Is it possible to say that:
- He/it has caused a loss to me.
I wonder if you help me with it.
Thank you in advance.
