You may recognize the name of this guest from the movie called “Catch Me If You Can.” He wrote the book about his life. Since then, for four decades he has been advising the FBI on how to outsmart the bad guys and has written three other books. Today he runs Abagnale and Associates where they develop new procedures and create manuals and educational programs utilized by over 14,000 financial institutions, law enforcement agencies and corporations.
Mr. Abagnale was named AARP Fraud Watch Network Ambassador in 2015. In that capacity, he launched a “Watch Your Wi-Fi” safety campaign which was created to educate people on the best practices for public Wi-Fi use and how to keep yourself safe when using them.
The AARP has created a free Fraud Watch Network that allows you to beat con artists at their own game by giving you access to the latest scam alerts delivered right to your inbox and tips to prevent and access to expert resources. You can also download their free e-book, “Protecting Yourself Online for Dummies,” which will help you to bank and shop safely, create the best and most secure passwords, use social media safely and protect yourself from identity theft.
