Publisher's Summary

Are you at risk of being scammed? Former con artist and best-selling author of Catch Me If You Can Frank Abagnale shows you how to stop scammers in their tracks.

Maybe you're wondering how to make the scam phone calls stop. Perhaps someone has stolen your credit card number. Or you've been a victim of identity theft. Even if you haven't yet been the target of a crime, con artists are always out there, waiting for the right moment to steal your information, your money, and your life.

As one of the world's most respected authorities on the subjects of fraud, forgery, and cyber security, Frank Abagnale knows how scammers work. In Scam Me If You Can, he reveals the 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 hundreds of tips, including: 

  • The best way to protect your phone from being hacked
  • The only time you should ever use a debit card
  • The one type of photo you should never post on social media
  • The only conditions under which you should use WiFi networks at the airport
  • The safest way to use an ATM

With his simple but counterintuitive rules, Abagnale also makes use of his insider intel to paint a picture of cyber crimes that haven't become widespread yet.

Critic Reviews

“They say you can’t con a con man. But what if you’re not a con man? Frank Abagnale once was, and now he’s on the other side, helping law enforcement and regular citizens spot the newest cons out there. Nobody can explain how to avoid the current epidemic of financial fraud as well Frank Abagnale. He is the ultimate authority. If you value your financial security, listen to this man.” (William Bratton, former police commissioner, NYPD and LAPD)

“For years, Frank Abagnale has been my first call in the event of any scam. His on-target, insightful advice has helped me and my audience protect itself. I'm so glad he's finally put this important information into a book we all can - and should - read.” (Jean Chatzky, host of the HerMoney podcast, Today Show financial editor, AARP financial ambassador)  

"A must-own for every American to arm themselves against the fastest growing crimes in our nation. Frank is a Jedi Master, and all of us in law enforcement are grateful students. Young or old, rich or not, whatever your background, Frank will empower you to protect yourself and your loved ones." (Sean D. Reyes, attorney general of the State of Utah)
