    Another problem with the use of "interfere"

    We can say "He interfered with me" or "He interfered with my work".
    However, why can't we use "with' instead of "in" in the following sentence:

    "I wish you would not interfere in my busenss"?

    Thanks.

    However, why can't we use "with' instead of "in" in the following sentence: You can, especially when "business" refers to your (commercial activity)(company).

    "I wish you would not interfere in my business"?

    Thanks.
