    Good afternoon

    I was wondering how to translate 'make money out of someone' in Italian. The sentence is:
    "Women who seek beauty are largely immune to these ways for corporations to make money out of them'. ['These ways' is referring to concern with weight, a love of cosmetics and elaborate hairdressing]

    I came up with:
    "Le donne che sono in cerca della bellezza non sono coscienti di essere sfruttate dagli enti." But perhaps I have strayed too far from the original Italian?

    To make money out of them = di diventare ricchi approfittandosi di loro.
