Enjoyed this episode - wild to hear from someone who had committed so much fraud talk about it so openly.

Episode details

“Everyone in America has had their identity stolen already,” Frank Abagnale said. He would know. He’s a con artist. Well, used to be. He retired. But 50 years ago, Frank was one of the most wanted men in the U.S. And in 2002, Steven Spielberg made a movie about him called “Catch Me If You Can,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Now, Frank has a new life teaching people how to protect their identity. And avoid all kinds of scams (romance scams, go fund me scams, investing scams, etc.) And he wrote a book with all these tips called “Scam Me If You Can: Simple Strategies to Outsmart Today's Rip-off Artists”.
