Who's the real fraud - a handsome guy or a pretty girl? Dylan Kuo and Terri Kwan star as con artists who eventually fall in love with each other. But can a love that starts with deception survive through the eventful Coming Lies?
Cash (Dylan Kuo) and his step-father (Sammo Hung) make a living by cheating money from other people. Deception is just a piece of cake to Cash who possesses much physical charm. One day he runs into Yu (Terri Kwan), the illegitimate daughter of a rich man. His sympathy for her urges him to help her get back what she deserves, but little does he know, he is actually stepping into a trap...
Gen Gu Han Enterprise's CEO, Sun Zhao Liang has taken to bed because of a serious illness. He urgently sends out news in hopes of finding his child before he passes away. In an instance, thousands of people show up in response. After investigating each and every one, Yu Mu Ti, is confirmed as his own child. Mu Ti appears to have found her real father. However, under Ding Yi Qing's deliberate pressure, Mu Ti wasn't able to get a penny out of the fortune.
Cash runs out of a shop. After organizing all the cards that represent his different identities, Cash returns to his own self and wants to find a quietness. His attire was a bit disorderly and he seems a bit tired. Having just successfully finished a big case, Cash usually chooses to leave Lao Die, Qi Qi, and Ying Zi for a short period of time. His constant change of identities is Cash's strength and charming women is a natural thing for him. Seeing how each time he uses his own power to get a great deal of money, Cash has no idea when he would be able to be his own self again. After saying goodbye to his numerous female companions, Cash goes over to the car that is parked along side the street. Just when he gets ready to start the engine of the car, he carelessly raises his head, and gawks at the scene in front of him. Not far away, Mu Ti is dressed very simply with her hair tied up in a ponytail, wearing a safety helmet and holding two empty milk bottles in her hand, all the while glaring at him with despising eyes and a cold expression. It is this one glare that causes Cash, who is used to the admiring glances of women, to develop interest in Mu Ti and that's how he fell in love with her at first sight! It is also this one despising glare that allows Mu Ti's plan to succeed. A handsome guy and beautiful girl's spy against spy starts from now.
Lao Die gets involved in the Gen Gu Han fortune dispute under someone's deliberate planning. Ding Yi Qing, Yu Mu Ti, Duan Yun Hao each have something up their sleeves and until the last minute, one would not know who is the strongest. However, at the same time when Yu Mu Ti, Lao Die and Cash get closer and closer, she starts to feel that this group of people is very different. Their so-called principle "even thieves have principles" is something that they hold strongly onto. This sort of attitude causes Mu Ti to gradually question herself whether she should continue to deceive her own father and the person that she loves.
Cash, who fell in love with Mu Ti, discovers that he has been part of a plan of Mu Ti's from the start. Would he be able to accept Yu Mu Ti? Would Cash and Mu Ti have a happy ending? Actually they both know that until it comes to the last minute, it would be hard to distinguish who is the smarter one. In the end, even the most clever trick is no match for the power of love!
Cash (Nickname) portrayed by (Dylan Guo Pin Chao) - Male, 26 years old. He was abandoned on the streets by his parents when he was young, a spirit with no name and no identity (actually, this brings about many conveniences for him in his job.) He has a whole bunch of nicknames, but "Cash" is a name that was given to him by Lao Die and it is also the name that has been with him for the longest time. Even though he is a swindler, yet he has a good heart. His biggest weakness is that his sympathy would swell up frequently while he is working! He has the perfect good looks that every girl dreams of having in a boyfriend and this is actually an advantage to his job. A slight smile from him would flash out ten thousand watts of radiance. Cash was adopted by swindler, Lao Die, when he was 7, 8 years old. He follows Lao Die to learn all the skills in deceiving people and was also forced to read many different books. As a result, even though he has never went to school, yet he is knowledgeable in many things. Due to his handsome and innocent looking face, it truly is a great advantage for him in this field. However, he only has the technical skills and is a total idiot when it comes to feelings. This is also the reason that Lao Die has to remind him every time: "In order to deceive someone, you must first learn to understand the person!" Lao Die is worried that Cash trusts people too much. Just one bright smile is enough to steal away the weakness of his sincerity. Plus there's the fact that he feels a bit inferior within his heart due to his own unknown identity. As a result, when he meets Yu Mu Ti, who has a high air of quality on her, knows how to play the piano, and can add a few French words in her dialogue when she speaks, Cash is unable to stand up against her! Who would have expected that this girl who has the appearance of an angel is the true swindler!

Since she was young, her mother, Tina, has sent her to a boarding school to live and her biggest wish is to have a normal family life. Her relationship with her mother has always been sparse and distant. She thought that her mother hated her because of her father and because of this, Mu Ti has always wanted to see her father - Lao Die. Her feelings toward Cash is complicated because she feels that Cash, who is adopted by Lao Die at a young age, possesses the fatherly love that should have belonged to her. For this reason, there seems to be a part of her heart where she longs to obtain Lao Die's support and get a winning hard in this game of fraud. She hopes that when the truth is revealed, Lao Die would be proud of her and will regret not accepting her as his daughter. When she slowly starts to fall in love with Cash, she suffers painfully from not being able to reveal her identity and worries that her lie will get her everything but make her lose true love.

This motto renders each person that he has cheated before speechless. His only weakness is Tina, this woman that he has spent a whole lifetime chasing but still has yet to accept his marriage proposal. He thought that it was because Tina doesn't have enough feelings for him and never thought that it was because he couldn't agree to Tina's request for him to stop his deceiving ways that has hurt Tina the most! His relationship with Tina when they were young resulted in her pregnancy. Because Lao Die wouldn't give up his deceiving ways, Tina never told him the truth and caused Lao Die and his daughter, Yu Mu Ti to meet but not recognize each other.
