Reformed Con Artist to Speak at F-M Chamber Event

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - For business owners looking to gain some firsthand security knowledge from a reformed con artist, the local Chamber has booked a well-known speaker.

Frank Abagnale will speak at a chamber event June 18th at the Ramada.

He is best known for his best-selling book, "Catch Me If You Can," which later became a film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Abagnale successfully assumed eight different identities, including an airline pilot and cashed $2.5 million in fraudulent checks.

Craig Whitney/FMWF Chamber President: "It will point out to them things that they should look out for. How they should keep track of transactions, credit card transactions, for instance. How to make sure that they keep their computer information secure."

For more than 30 years, Abagnale has worked with corporations and government agencies around the world.
