I may cheat on you (if you are my partner, by indulging in a liaison with someone else).
I may cheat you (by not answering this question honestly).
But in my experience, I cannot possibly cheat from, or cheat off, or cheat off of anyone. I don't know if this is AE/BE difference.

A crib sheet is a small piece of paper with answers to a test written on it that you would sneak into class with you.
