How to Protect Yourself and Your Business from Fraud-America’s Crime. In April 1971, I appeared before a federal judge and pleaded guilty to all the crimes known and unknown that I had committed in the United States. There were hundreds of outstanding charges against me, but the judge collapsed them into eight counts. He sentenced me to ten years on each of seven counts of fraud, to run concurrently, and two years on the one count of escape, which were to be served consecutively. And he remanded me to prison in Virginia. Twenty cents an hour. The Petersburg jail wasn’t the worst place to do time.

While technology may make it easier to track down criminals, cyberspace has spawned a skyrocketing number of ways to commit crime, much of it untraceable. In fact, punishment for fraud, much less recovery of stolen funds, is a rare occurrence. Prevention is the best form of protection. Frank Abagnale, former con artist and bestselling author of Catch Me If You Can, reveals the mind-boggling tricks of the scam trade with advice that has made him one of America's most sought after fraud-prevention experts. Drawn from his twenty-five-year career on the other side of the law, The Art of the Steal provides eye-opening stories of true scams with tips on how they could have been avoided.

The author's first book, Catch Me If you Can, was a fun, exciting romp through the life of a very successful con man.

This book is totally different. It is a book of practical tips on how to avoid being the victim of a scam. If you read the first book and you're looking for more of the same fun, this isn't it. This is more like a textbook. Some of the information is useful, but frankly, I found most of it too abstract.

It's probably more useful to business owners than to the average person. Like there's most of a chapter devoted to how to design checks that are hard for forgers to manipulate. That kind of thing.

Maybe I'm being unfair to this book because I bought it expecting the same light-hearted fun of Catch Me If You Can. It's not the same kind of book at all.

Wow, if you don't get paranoid about your security after reading this book, then you didn't understand it well enough. Frank Abagnale, the anti-hero of the movie "Catch Me if You Can," lays it all out on the table. He tells how to recognize counterfeit money, how scams operate, how to protect your credit cards, how thieves can get into your home, where they look for valuables, and much more.

I've always been security-aware, but this explained things I hadn't even thought about -- like not having your home alarm panel visible from outside the house. (Thieves can tell if it's turned on or not.) He tells how to protect your bank checks and why you should avoid the types with cute puppies or flowers on them. He tells how sales receipts have been used to rip off stores. Having been a counterfeiter and a thief himself, he reveals all the tricks of the trade. The book will give you many "aha!" moments, it will make you slap your hand to your forehead, and it will motivate you to do simple things that can stop thieves in their tracks. It will even make you laugh out loud at the cleverness of some shysters.

Armed with Frank's knowledge, you can outsmart many of the people who are looking for an easy way to rip off your home or business. If you make it more difficult, they'll go where the pickings are easier. Plus, the book is like sitting with Frank and listening to him retell his "war stories." It's an easy read... and entertaining as well.

The things that can be done with receipts, credit cards and cheques is amazing. I have to admit I'm astonished after reading this that in 2008 cheques are still so widely used everyday in the USA and that they are cashed in so many places (like corner stores and supermarkets etc) - its something you'd never see in Australia where cheques are dying in use only cashed in a few places like banks under restricted circumstances. Its no wonder there's so much fraud with them in the states.

Knowledge can be a two edged sword as the author of this book readily acknowledges. On the one hand it can help people who don't know any better avoid scams on the other hand this book is a good primer for people who want to learn some basics of the con for themselves.

Some of the techniques in this book are very American-centric based on weaknesses in the financial system there but other such as short change artist getting you at the till are much more international. All said this is a fascinating read on how the best intentions can be turned on their head and how a willingness to believe the best in everyone will probably only get you ripped off eventually by those who do not have the same principles. The methods of the con may change over the years (hence the move to on-line fraud these days) but this book can give you a valuable insight into some of the ingenious methods of fraud, both simple and complex.

Frank Abagnale starts off with some very interesting and specifiic details in a book that's pretty good reading. Informative, and offering a few examples that likely work for con-men, the first 2/3 of the book are focused and follow a coherent course. In the final portion of the book, maybe just for filler, the author then muddies the course and gets ambiguous, giving us information that really does not explain or solve anything for the reader--it's vague and general themes that we all hear constantly, and the only real way to get the monkey off our back would be to climb into some hole and shut the computer off.
Fortunately though, Frank offers a lot of good wisdom elsewhere in his book, and shows promise as a continuing author. I thinks it's almost humorous just how blatantly daring somebody is to pull off these cons, and in broad daylight, so to speak. People seem to have a hard time with simple details; any cop will tell you that, and simple things are what get us every time.
For a followup book, I would hope that Frank Abagnale, Jr., draft a bible of every known con game played out, in existence, and that bible become a household reference book everytime some joker calls us on the phone or sends us phony email. It seems the elderly could certainly use some help in refreshing their power of discernment.
In essence, the con plays are anything unknown; they are used every day and the cops are all too familiar with them. By writing them down, maybe we could recognize a 'new one' for our own information, and be able to reference the 'old tricks' for our future reference and preservation.
Frank certainly writes in a very understandable and informative manner.
