Dealing with a liar you can't call out

I am sure everyone has to deal with this at one point or another. But, this has gotten me really down ... I have a person in my life, that I can get rid of, who lies to me all the time. I mean ALL THE FUCKING TIME. I can't call them out either because it will cause enormous conflict and makes things worse. How do you deal with this -- I have tried 1) minimizing contact; 2) not responding to messages or emails that don't require a response; and the tried and true responses of "I understand," "I see," and "There's a lot there in what you said" Anything else that works? Looking for responses to get through the conversation without accepting the lie (I already tried this - it makes matters worse, becoming an admission on my part). I have already stopped asking questions so I won't have to be told any lies.
