About Frank Abagnale
Former criminal and current security consultant, American Frank Abagnale has an estimated net worth of $10 million. He earned his net worth as a former confidence trickster, check forger, impostor and escape artist. He became famous after his life story provided the inspiration for the feature film Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. The same name goes for a Broadway musical which opened in April 2011 and a ghostwritten autobiography.
Born Frank William Abagnale Jr on April 27, 1948 in Bronxville, New York, he was one of the four children of Frank Sr., and Paulette, of French ancestry. He spent the first sixteen years of his life in Bronxvile but ran away at the divorce hearing of his parents. His first victim was his father who gave him a gas credit card and a truck to help him in commuting to his part-time job. For him to get date money, he devised a scheme where he used the gas card to “buy” tires, batteries and other car-related items at the gas stations. He then asked the attendants to give him cash in return for the products. Ultimately, his father was held liable for several thousands of dollars bill.
Before turning 21, Frank Abagnale has proven himself to be one of the most successful impersonators and forgers in the world, claiming to have assumed no fewer than eight identities as an airline pilot, a doctor, a U.S. Bureau of Prison agent and a lawyer. He went under the aliases Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams and Robert Monjo. He had escaped from police custody twice: once from a taxiing airliner and once from a U.S. federal penitentiary. He was also adept in creating and faking fake checks. He served fewer than five years in prison before he worked with the very same people who captured him t help catch other criminals. This turned to be the highly sought-after skill for government and private corporations. He is currently a consultant and lecturer for the FBI academy and field offices. He is also the CEO of Abagnale & Associates, a financial fraud consultancy and security company.
