Sweet tongue hide black heart.

Largely used in Antigua, this proverb implies that the same person who sweet talks you, will be the same person to betray you.

A similar proverb from Barbados goes “De tongue dat does buy yuh, does sell yuh.”

In Jamaica, the proverb goes “Oily tung nuh mus tell Di truth,” meaning a smooth talker does not always tell the truth.
