''They like to take advantage'' Vs ''advantage takers''

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,


Based on the sentence "they like to take advantage of people", is it natural/common to say "they are advantage takers"? If not, what do you suggest? Please take a look at the context.

'I don't like those people from the gym.'
''Why not?''
'Because they are advantage takers.'


Advantage takers: people who like to take advantage of other people things, trying to obtain an advantage often dishonestly.


Thank you in advance!

    I think you could say 'advantage takers', but, to me, it would sound unnatural.

    If you want to sound natural, I think you are stuck with simply, but more wordily, saying 'Because they take advantage of people'.
