People may say an evil entity exists and tell you they are 100% correct. But the simple truth is no one knows absolutely sure of its existence. Christian's and Islamic followers may say a devil exists because it is in their scripture. I can tell you all morning that I am an atheist, but at the end of the day I am agnostic. There simply is not enough evidence other than holy writings, which may or may not be subjective. It's probably not a trick, but likely a play on words.

No. The best trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that God exists. Let me rephrase that: neither God nor the devil exists. It is our own responsibility to do good and to be moral citizens, and our own responsibility if we fail. Nothing is achieved by having an imaginary being to blame for our own shortcomings.

The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he doesn't exist?

It's a quote from French poet Charles Pierre Baudelaire.It has to do with ontological arguments. In Christianity, God is said to be omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing) and omnibenevolent (all good). But how could a being such as this exist if there are disasters and evils in the world? A purely good being that knows all and has the power to stop evil would not allow them. Ergo the devil must exist to explain evil acts. Without the devil, you can't have God.So by convincing the world that he didn't exist he convinces the world that God doesn't exist.

Does the devil posses people?

It is rare that Beelzebub possesses a person. Typically it is 1 of Satan's minions, another demon.  I see I see there is another answer that indicates there has never been a person possessed by the devil. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing man he didn't exist. I would warn that man who doesn't believe in the Antichrist to watch his ignorance, for Satan lies possessing ignorant people. And God will not protect those who are ignorant.
