Could NOT applying for financial aid hurt your chances?

Would it be harder to get in (even slightly) at need-blind schools where not applying for financial aid would show that you are rich and lead admissions officers to think your life is easier than those who come from less affluent families? What if I check the box saying I will apply for financial aid but don't?
