Mr. Abagnale’s rare blend of knowledge and expertise began more than 50 years ago when he was known as one of the world’s most famous con men.

In this unique presentation, The Art of the Steal, con man turned crime-stopper Frank Abagnale provides the latest information to protect institutions, associations and corporations from embezzlement, forgery, counterfeit currency, check fraud, identity theft, and Internet fraud. He describes white-collar crime techniques, liability concerns under the new Uniform Commercial Code, and demonstrates the latest document features and equipment.
