I need one word with the meaning of "take advantage of somebody for personal benefit", is there any one?
The best word would be exploit.
As another poster said, the best answer no doubt is "exploited". Your ignorance (of a particular situation) may be taken advantage of, (exploited) by someone who is deceitful, or dishonest, etc. and obviously has a perverse character to treat someone unfairly in order to get some benefit for himself. The perpetrator may be a boss, a so-called friend, an older (and much bigger & stronger) sibling, a bully, a coworker, etc.
Bamboozle might be used to mean this.
Another possibility: to deceive ?
to mislead or falsely persuade others; practice deceit: an engaging manner that easily deceives.
Victimize might work well in this context.
I think the best one is SWINDLE. (especially when you deceive him/her to get money).
