It seems that every time Charlie Brown goes for a kick at the ball, Lucy always gets the last laugh. The classic "bait and switch" idea of getting someone to do something seems to always grab some gullible consumer's attention. It is sad to see people being swindled into investment in something that is really false. The Book of Mormon gives an example of Zeezrom trying to trick the Alma into denying his testimony for money, when the money would not be given to him in the first place. Seeing these instances cause people to be cautious and reserved, rather than openly trusting. Pulling the football out from under someone else is not nice and ultimately does not help. Don't do it.
