Could I loose my money? Does it mean "asking for permission" or "confirming the possibilities if there is"?
If both are correct then how would I know? What does speaker mean with it?
Scenario I: I am on bike making my way to home.
My Friend comes to me said "There is a riot. Don't go there."
Me "Could I lose my money?"
Scenario II: In a cash counter; cashier already counting someone's money.
Me: "Could I loose my money?" (so that he can start counting mine)
Is using could in both the scenarios acceptable?
