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.
