I give you money, then you burn me, then you made off

Meaning

Reference to Bernie Madoff (“burn me”/Bernie and “made off”/Madoff). Bernie is a former businessman who was involved in one of the biggest ponzi schemes in US history. He made off with a lot of people’s money, just like this girl did with CG’s money, right after he gave it to her! He’s a bad investor.
