    Thank
    It means "(in that case) I lost / I lose $500."
    Thank you very much:) is it a frequent phrase in conversations? Would you please make some examples of this usage?
    Unfortunately I couldn't find any examples in the dictionaries

    Yes, it's common in conversation, at least in the US. It may derive from the expression "to be out of pocket":

    You're going to have to pay me for those parts. Otherwise I'm $50 out of pocket, not to mention my time.
