Charismatic former forger Abagnale exposes the tactics of today's identity theft criminals and offers powerful strategies to thwart them, based on his second career as an acclaimed fraud-fighting consultant. When Abagnale trains law enforcement officers about identity theft, he asks for their names and addresses and nothing more. In a matter of hours he can obtain everything he would need to steal their lives: Social Security numbers, dates of birth, current salaries, checking account numbers, the names of everyone in their families, and more. This illustrates how easy it is for anyone from anywhere in the world to assume our identities and in a matter of hours devastate our lives in ways that can take years to recover from. Abagnale offers dozens of concrete steps to transform anyone from an easy mark into a hard case that criminals are likely to bypass.--From publisher description.

Though a bit dated now, it drives home the fact that there is no privacy in this world any more, and that your identity can be more easily stolen today than ever. You may not know about it for years! To think a stranger can so destroy your life for their own greed is not new, but chilling, because you suffer the repercussions of this perhaps all the rest of your life, while he/she usually goes scott free!
