Frank Abagnale, a reformed con artist and author of “Scam Me If You Can,” was famously portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie “Catch Me If You Can.” He now works as a private consultant, author and public speaker with the goal of preventing fraud. He has some advice for everyone who uses a computer, tablet, or smartphone: stop giving away your information to scammers.
Abagnale thinks technology is only making it easier for scammers to operate today. “What I did 50 years ago is 4,000 times easier to do today,” Abagnale said.
He personally does not use social media and said it can be a potential gold mine for any scammers looking to make you a victim.
