    She is too good to be taken advantage of.

    Or "She is good enough to be taken advantage of''.

    The title is better than the alternative.

    The alternative would work with "naive", "trusting", "cooperative", etc.

    Re: She is too good to be taken advantage of.

    She is too good to be taken advantage of.

    This can mean two things.
    "It would be impossible to take advantage of her because she is too morally aware to fall for it."
    "It might be possible, but it would be very immoral, since she is worth better treatment than that."
