Scam Me if You Can

Scam me if you can

Former con artist Frank Abagnale became famous when his early life was chronicled in the hit movie Catch Me If You Can. For the past four decades he's been working for the good guys, helping the FBI, financial institutions, corporations, and law enforcement avoid the kinds of scams that target Americans today.

His new book is about the very latest tricks that today's scammers, hackers, and con-artists use to steal your money and personal information - often online and over the phone. Using plain language and vivid examples, Abagnale reveals, for example . . .
- The one type of photo you should never post on Facebook.
- The only conditions under which you should use WiFi networks at the airport.
- The best way to protect your phone from being hacked.
- The only type of ATM you should use.

Explaining his simple but counter-intuitive rules to protect yourself, Abagnale also makes use of his insider intel to paint a picture of cybercrimes that haven't become widespread yet.
