_________________________

Hi Teachers,

I've found in my dictionary that "to fool into" means "to deceive someone or oneself into doing something", but it is still unclear for me because "to deceive into doing something" is unclear now. I know the meanings of each word in the explanation but I can't think of "to deceive" as "to convince someone to do smth. by fraud", as I understand the expanation.

Is my interpretation correct?

Thank you,
Vladimir.
