I'm surprised by the definition and the example given for "rip off". Rip off is strong, the translation into French is "arnaquer, voler, rafler, arracher", not a simple "charge too much"; once you know, def and example are acceptable.


~~ edit
Here's another example of "rip off":



This phone rips off both the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9
What the what? Leagoo's new phone does its best to rip off both Apple and Samsung at the same time.

Common Preposition Collocations in English - ESL Buzz
In English, many nouns, verbs, and adjectives are commonly followed by prepositions.
ESLBUZZ.COM



Let's revise and revise again learning a couple of new words here and there.

If the preposition is not "to", it usually means we've to use a noun or a gerund such as in suffer from a surgery, prevent from making mistakes, suffer from failing another time.
If the preposition is "to", it's ambiguous tho' a "to" sometimes infers an infinitive, such as in lead to trouble, accustomed to riding on Sundays, it tends to be the case.

Hi Muriel,
Australian English usually follows British English... with occasional betrayal when they take after American (very rare).
