Last week, Mr. Abagnale spoke at a U.S. Bank-sponsored seminar at the Nashville Airport Marriott hotel. An article written for The Tennessean recaps Frank’s commentary at the engagement.

Technology makes it very easy for people to commit crimes, including identity theft.
Here at PrivacyGuard, we understand how easy it can be for someone’s identity to be stolen. That is why we encourage you to take proactive measures to protect yourself from identity thieves, and to register for ongoing credit monitoring in our service.
