The Frank Abagnale Story

You probably watched the movie, "Catch Me If You Can" with Leonardo DeCaprio.....a far fetched tail of being a professional impersonator and forger.

If you have 27 minutes, here is his fascinating story, plus his personal message near the end.

He admits he passed the Bar exam in Louisiana and was hired as a physician in Georgia.  Actually spent time in 3 prisons, France (movie), Sweden and the US.  Has worked 40+ years with FBI and still does.  Offered a pardon by 3 presidents and turned them down.

It's an entertaining story he tells.
