Frank W. Abagnale

Between the ages of 16 and 21 Frank W. Abagnale successfully posed as an airline pilot, an attorney, a college professor and a pediatrician, in addition to cashing $2.5 million in fraudulent checks in every state and 26 foreign countries. This was depicted most graphically in his best-selling book and subsequent feature film, "Catch Me If You Can."

Currently, Frank is a respected authority on forgery, embezzlement and secure documents. For more than 30 years he has worked with, advised and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world. After his prison term, he was released on the condition that he would help the federal government, without remuneration, by teaching and assisting federal law enforcement agencies.
