The Student Lectureship Committee has invited Frank Abagnale to speak on campus March 19 at 7 p.m. in the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. This event is free and open to the public. Beginning as one of the world’s most famous con men (posing as an airline pilot, doctor and lawyer) Abagnale later became one of the most respected authorities on forgery, embezzlement and secure documents. He has worked with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies. He was made even more famous through director Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film, “Catch Me If You Can,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, which was based on Abagnale’s best-selling autobiography.
