Full Bio

Frank W. Abagnale is one of the world’s most respected authorities on the subjects of forgery, embezzlement and secure documents. For over thirty years he has lectured to and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world.

His rare blend of knowledge and expertise began as a teenager. More than 40 years ago he was known as one of the world’s most famous confidence men as depicted in his best-selling book, “Catch Me If You Can.” He cashed $2.5 million in fraudulent checks in every state and 26 foreign countries over a five-year period. Between the ages of 16 and 21, he successfully posed as an airline pilot, an attorney, a college professor and a pediatrician. Apprehended by the French police when he was 21 years old, he served time in the French, Swedish and U. S. prison systems. After five years he was released on the condition that he would help the federal government, without remuneration, by teaching and assisting federal law enforcement agencies.

Mr. Abagnale has been associated with the FBI for over 30 years. He lectures extensively at the FBI Academy and the field offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. More than 14,000 financial institutions, corporations and law enforcement agencies use his fraud prevention programs. In 1998, he was selected as a distinguished member of “Pinnacle 400” by CNN Financial News. In 2006 Mr. Abagnale was selected as one of the 15 Differentiators in Retail by the editorial board of RIS News. Mr. Abagnale’s most recent book, “Stealing Your Life”, will be released in April 2007 by Random House. He has also written “The Art of the Steal”, “The Real U Guide to Identity Theft” and “The Bankers’ Document Verification and Currency Transaction Manual”. In 2004 Mr. Abagnale was selected as the national spokesperson for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).

Mr. Abagnale was the subject of a major motion picture entitled “Catch Me If You Can”, directed by Steven Spielberg with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
