Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Andreas Schroeder strikes again. The fraud artists who luck in or luck out in amazing fashion are described with delightful style. Just when you thought you knew how gullible or sneaky people can be, there's a new surprise in the next story. This collection includes the full story of Frank Abignail, the "hero" of the file Catch Me If You Can (Leonardo diCaprio) ... except what Frank did in real life is far more amazing than what they show in the film. I thoroughly recommend this book.

I loved this book. You can read it in a sitting or two, but they are great stories if you like clever and not so clever fraud stories. I would reccomend it highly.
Andreas has recently come out with a second book on the same subject.

It is amazing what some people will try to get away with. Some of them do. My only complaint is that the author adjusted the dollar amounts to 1990 dollars. You never know the actual amount that was stolen. Still interesting.
