Using a position of authority as a means to take advantage of a person or a people by gaining their confidence. Trickery is often used by politicians, police officers and other authority figures to gain support while unwittingly manipulating and oppressing those very same people who are subject to their control. Trickery often involves use of the phrase "Trust me, I'm a _______"
Police officer: "Your friends over there already told me that you did that thing, so why don't you just confess and make it easier for all of us, you can trust me, I'm a police officer"

Citizen: "Oh really, hmm… yeah, ok, I'm sorry, I did just do that thing"

Police officer: "GET ONTO THE GROUND WITH YOUR HANDS BEHIND YOUR HEAD! YOU'RE GOING TO JAIL FOR A LONG TIME BUCKO!!!"

Citizen: "OH NO! I should never have fallen for your police trickery! FML"

Congressman: "don't worry people, we've got this whole economy/budget situation under control… Trust me, I'm in congress. This stuff is far too complicated for a simpleton like you to understand. Now just vote for Prop X and everything will be fine"

In volleyball, a player sets the ball up for another player who jumps up in order to spike it over the net. The ball, however, goes over the net without aid and everyone on the court is caught off guard; even the spiker and setter didn't know that was going down.

In order to cover up the the setter's poor (but lucky) play, that team calls the maneuver 'trickery.'
