Dear Damir,

I believe John Vogel at Brandeis has been working on using transcripts from conversations in a game where deception is fundamental. I think "Mafia Wars" might be its name. He's started some interesting research based on online chat dialogues extracted from the game, rich in deception.

Hope this helps,
