Scam artists

In my limited experience with really good liars, they can sound more believable telling a lie than most of us would be telling the truth. Probably because they have practiced most of their lives, and they know how to not sound too "smooth". Fortunately for this purpose, I have always been cynical enough to not get taken in any significant way, but I can see how easily that could happen.
