    #56 The Greatest Hoax: Frank Abagnale

    #56 The Greatest Hoax: Frank Abagnale

    In this episode, Brett sits down with his former podcast co-host of the Online FraudCast, Karisse Hendrick, to discuss the well-researched revelations of the new book, "The Greatest Hoax on Earth; Catching The Truth While We Can" by author Alan C. Logan. The subject of this book is the legendary Frank Abignale Jr. Most famously known for his life as a Con-Man in the late 60's and 70's, victimizing large companies such as TWA airlines in check fraud. Frank has gone on to write several books, speak for a large fee at conferences all over the world, and was the subject of the Steven Spielberg movie "Catch Me if You Can", in which Leonardo DiCaprio played a young Abagnale. In his book, Alan C. Logan fact-checks the most common threads of the stories that Abagnale has told for over 40 years, and debunks them. The truth of what Abagnale did during that time was a lot worse, yet less glamourous than the stories he's told. Because Brett Johnson is often referred to as "The Frank Abignale of Cybercrime", he is the best person fit to comment on these revelations and his reactions to them. The article mentioned in the episode can be found here: https://whyy.org/segments/the-greatest-hoax-on-earth/ The book can be found on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Hoax-Earth-Catching-Truth/dp/1735557226 Karisse's podcast, Fraudology can be found on most podcast platforms, as well as here: https://fraudologypodcast.libsyn.com If you enjoyed this episode, please rate & review the podcast where you can!

Modern Day Frank Abagnale

Prove me wrong… this dude is trying to share all his knowledge of how the criminal underground works.
Pandoras Box? Maybe. But that’s our own fault isn’t it?

Keep it real!

Glad your back

I’ve been waiting for more episodes! Criminal justice student looking to get into online security and his insight is great, as well as the experts he has on. I loved the recent two part episode with Robert, I wish more people were like him in the cj system and this world would be a better place. What a down to earth guy with a great approach to the job, not many like him he’s a real one.
