It depends on the person. I think most people have a tell when they are lying. Because I tend to be quiet and reserved, I am able to watch and observe people more closely. Usually, people who are lying to me will struggle with direct eye contact but this can't be used universally. I struggle with it myself, with most people. I am only okay making eye contact with my husband.

Debbie is right, it depends on the person. Some people are better capable at lying that others. And some can't keep a straight face when lying. 

I feel that a lot of people speak more when lying, and often make gestures and movements that don't always match up. People who lie, tend to look away, or look down. Some will fidget with their hands or something else when caught in a lie, or attempting to lie. 

I would look at some interrogations of people who were caught committing crimes, those are always a good way to see how people lie.

 Shrugging, lack of expression, and a bored posture can be signs of lying since the person is trying to avoid conveying emotions and possible tells. Overthinking: If the individual seems to be thinking too hard to fill in the details of the story, it might be because they are deceiving you. But some people are always unpredicatable and good liars too.... You never know,....

I tend to get suspicious about people when they offer more detail than necessary. It isn't always a lie, but more often than not, people give too much detail to compensate for lies.

Inconsistency and attention to detail. They begin by going into information that is otherwise irrelevant and contradictory to what they have said. For example, they may start with a timeline and then get it muddled up later, or there may be fresh additions that match what they were saying at the moment to fill in the gaps of what they said at the beginning. In such situations, I resort to questioning. If it's confusing them, they'll have to think about it, they'll respond with fresh information or not, and they may not even respond to the question at all, instead going in circles. This makes me sceptical of what they're saying.
