Many times. There are so many people who at first seem so good, and try and act so nice, and many times these are often the ones who will take advantage of you, and the system and many times, have things to hide. They go around telling everyone good stuff to begin with, and then wham in for the kill. Makes you leary of others out there and makes you wonder who you can really ever trust.

That is why it's so important not to judge someone because of their looks or the way they behave, confidence tricksters know exactly how to behave and what to say when they want to con you out of money, they have got a talent in how to trick you or put on a false pretense. The trick is to be able to see right through these people and their lies and not to be taken in by the way they look. No one know their true intentions until it's too late and you've been tricked by them.

some tricks they do and chances are they also utilize the facility to convince us that they are honest, with the fact that there they certainly do not show their true nature. I ever seen anything, there are people selling the house but as soon as the buyer told to the seller to go to the bank to check if that funds already transferred. And so the seller go there and follow the steps and while would like to enter the account number and he notice almost lost his money because he got wrong direction to the transaction which given from ATM and the call numbers not of the number from the official bank.

I have been deceived twice in recent years from people who were overly friendly and kind in the beginning, but then turned out to be nasty, argumentative people who were very difficult to deal with later on. One was a real estate lady who we rented our house from and the other was a business broker who we attempted to sell our business through. Both ladies were extremely nice in the beginning and signing with them was easy due to the fact that they made me feel very comfortable with them. But once we had signed, things went downhill rapidly and their true nature shone through. Sadly!

The woman may have been done to others as well so once they get their prey and undermine those who have trusted her. It is difficult to prove because when viewed from their daily life as a good person. We lured huge profits and they also good at seducing, which is why even though we are cautious nonetheless affected their seduction.

Yes I have many times and it is so sad because in return I truly and honestly been nice to them and polite and how I treat people that is how I truly am. I don't understand why people act like this. But in the end those people who were fake to me and treated me differently they are no longer apart of my life and as I see it, what goes around comes around and so I am no longer worried about it.

they seem only concerned with themselves and take advantage of those who are near them. I think they want to be valued and respected, it kind of force other people to do what don't want to do. If they don't get people who nice to them then they will find other people which can be deceived by them. Glad you not worry about it!

Yes it happens to me as well, and the latest is this girl I met here in our new place, I thought she will be a good friend because she really is pleasing and seems to be so generous and caring, she's also saying good things and smiling in front of me but I just found out that she's also a great liar and a great great back stabber ... that while she's smiling in front of me and saying good things about me, at my back she's telling bad things about me and the worst is that she's telling lies and just her own assumption on things... and did I say that she's also a flirt? I'm just thankful that I found it earlier and that I did not get drowned in her kindness... and now I already kicked her out in my life because she's not doing anything good to me and my husband. I hope not to meet anyone like her again and I will be more careful now in choosing a friend and whom to trust...

that is why I do not want to trust anyone 100%, they are good when we are near them, and if they are far away we will not know their properties unless we are following them to seek the truth. I once had a friend who looks good but he really take advantage of me, if he had no money he whined to me and luckily I did not give his my penny. When he becomes rich he does not care anymore with me.

That's what a con artest is. They are charassmatic, friendly, charming, and clever (usually) looks can decieve (though, in my experiance, not very much.) I've deffinatly been cheated before, but honestly, I've cheated people too (this was a long while ago.) Then there are lawyers and politicians, but we already know they're liers.

Looks can be deceiving so beware of it. The most angelic looks sometimes hides the ev*l inside. That's we should avoid being judgmental. Not everyone who looks bad are indeed bad- and not everyone who ears the sweetest smile is an angel. It could be an evil in disguise.

I have real people who I can see them for what they truly are. I don't have friends who are liars and who put on a false smile and who try to make themselves look good when they are mean on the inside. Yep. I have known these types all my life. The good ones though, don't try to put of a front. I like them a lot and they know I am up front and honest with them too.

Sometimes you feel your life is colored because of the many good people around you. Help each other, work together, share with each other until a sacrifice arises. However, you must be careful whether the person is really good or just a good pretense. For that, understand to know if the person is really good.
If we do good to someone, maybe that person can not reply, but God will reward those people through another way or through others. Likewise the person who has contributed to us. God must reciprocate those people kindness. We need not feel overwhelmed by our debt. Although we should be grateful to anyone who contributed to us.

A sense of wanting to please others must have been present in life. Because he/she is not sincere, he/she just makes without keeping it. However, if he/she is sincere and that commitment or promise will surely be fulfilled. In fact, if he/she is not sure can keep it, no need to make commitments or promises because it could be it will hurt others.
