It means how can I cheat you?


It is a play on the phrase what can I do for you? This implies or suggests helping someone for example in a shop.

The phrase above means how can I do you, particularly financially? It implies some form of con. whereby it sounds similar to a phrase committed to genuine intentions, but a subtle reversal of only two words means the exact opposite.
