Frank Abagnale was one of the most colorful con men and forgers in America during the 1960s, posing variously as a doctor, pilot, teacher, and attorney. After his capture by the FBI in 1969 and release from prison in 1974, Abagnale reinvented himself as a security consultant for banks. His life story was made into a book, which in turn was made into a motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio. NB: the recording includes some small lacunae.
