Frank Abagnale, AARP ambassador, has advised the FBI on how to outsmart con artists for over four decades. Once one of the world’s most famous confidence men, inspiring the Steven Spielberg film Catch Me if You Can, he is now one of the world’s most respected authorities on identity theft. He assists AARP by sharing his expertise and insight to arm individuals with the knowledge and information on how to spot and avoid scams, and the importance of safely using social media so that they can protect their families.
