In this paper, we demonstrate how our previous work on Argument Revision can be used to assist a participant in a dialogue to be dishonest. We first provide answers to the questions of why a participant would choose to lie, and what constitutes a lie in terms of structured argumentation. We then go on to show how Argument Revision can be used not only in selecting a "minimal" lie, but also in maintaining that lie in order to avoid detection.
