 "try to trick" is the keyword here, and we can circle back to something
you said (more or less) before: is there any case in which trying to trick
someone is going to give you any benefits?

I suppose for every specific case there is a possible counter-response (see
my mob example and your answer). Still, real life is not so black and
white, so maybe it could be possible to trick someone.. But here it all
depends by the person trying to trick (and his or her skills in lying) so...
