Legendary Fraud Expert Comes to Portland Nov. 14

Posted on 11/07/19

For over four decades, Frank W. Abagnale has advised the FBI on how to outsmart con artists and now he’s coming to Portland November 14 at 7 p.m. to help us learn how to spot and avoid scams so we can protect our families. As one of the world’s most respected authorities on forgery, embezzlement and secure documents, Abagnale has joined forces with the AARP Fraud Watch Network and AARP Oregon.

Today, Abagnale is an expert on the subject of identity theft, has written three books on the subject and served as a consultant to some of the largest companies in the world on the subject of cybercrime.
