Deceiver De*ceiv"er, n. One who deceives; one who leads into error; a cheat; an impostor. [1913 Webster]

The deceived and the deceiver are his. --Job xii. 16.

Syn: {Deceiver}, {Impostor}.

Usage: A deceiver operates by stealth and in private upon individuals; an impostor practices his arts on the community at large. The one succeeds by artful falsehoods, the other by bold assumption. The faithless friend and the fickle lover are deceivers; the false prophet and the pretended prince are impostors. [1913 Webster]
