Idiom: fry the fish in its own oil?

or fry the pork in its own oil. do you know any similar idioms?

http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/129330/...

Update:

it's not about money. it's about using a person to hurt him by himself, to hurt a country by using its own citizens or politicians, it's like to stew someone in his/her own juice (but not quite this way). http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/stew+in+own+ju...

    It's all Greek to me

    At the drop of a hat

    Barking up the wrong tree

    He can't cut the mustard

    It was a feeding frenzy

    Getting down to brass tacks

    He's getting long in the tooth

    Sick as a dog

    I smell a rat

    Made from scratch

    (Just where do I find this scratch? LOL!)

    That was the last straw

    Make no bones about it

    Letting the cat out of the bag

    They just had a field day

    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth

    She has a chip on her shoulder

    Back seat driver

    Stuck between a rock & a hard place

    Back to square one

    It's a piece of cake

    Just a drop in the bucket

    High as a kite

    Jump the gun

    Pay the piper

    It's a whole new ball game

    A little bird told me

    Don't be a cold fish

    He can really cut a rug

    Every dog has it's day

    That's a horse of a different color

    It's nothing to sneeze at

    Wag the dog

    I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop

    Walk on eggshells

    Don't waste your breath

    He's pulling your leg

    Kick the bucket

    Many Blessings!
