prank vs. cheat vs. kid

When a friend joke with me by lying something. How can I respond to him politely and friendly.'You are kidding me' or ' You are cheating me.' or ' You are pranking me.' Are they all correct? Which one you prefer and most common? Thank you!

    The three words mean different things. (Also, to my ears, the use of "prank" as a verb is a bit odd, even though I have heard it in recent years.) What do you want your sentence to mean?
