Good. Morning it's a pleasure to be here this morning and, ask your indulgence on, two things it's allergy, season so. I have a real hard time during this. Time of year speaking and to, most, of the speaking I do when I walk up to the podium is very technical, it deals with cybercrime. And identity. Theft forgery embezzlements. And things of that nature I don't. Often talk about my life but Google has asked me today to do something that different and talk a little bit about my life so, I will do that and then at, the end of course I'll take questions and those questions can be about any subject matter that you I'd, like to ask as. You know I've had a lot of people tell my story. I had a great movie director, write a film. About my life I've had a great Broadway, musical, team make a Tony award-winning, Broadway musical. About my life had a popular, television show, on TV white collar for four years creating around my life and, most of those very creative people have actually never met me personally. But. They've enjoyed telling my story from their, point of view so I thought, I would take a few minutes this morning and actually tell you the story from my. Point of view I was. Raised just north of New York City in Westchester, County New York I was actually one of four children in the family the so called middle child of the four I was, educated there by the Christian Brothers of Ireland in a private Catholic school called, Iona where I went to school from kindergarten, to high school by, the time I had reached the age of 16, in the tenth grade my parents after 22, years of marriage when they decided to get, a divorce, unlike. Most divorces where the children were usually the first to know my parents were very good about keeping that a secret I remember. Being in the tenth grade when the father walked in the classroom one afternoon asked a brother to excuse me from class when I came out in the hallway the father handed. Me my books and told me that one of the brothers would drive me to the county seat and why Plains New York where I would meet my parents and they would explain what was going on I remember. The brother dropped me at the steps of a big stone building and, told me to go on up the steps and my parents would be waiting for me in the lobby emember, climbing the steps seeing a sign on the building it said Family Court but I really didn't understand what that meant when. I arrived in the lobby my parents were not there but I was ushered into the back of an immense courtroom where my parents were standing before a judge I couldn't. Hear what the judge was saying nor my parents response, but. Eventually the judge saw me at the back of the room and motioned. Me to approach the bench so I walked up to stand in between my parents I remember. Distinctly that, the judge never looked at me he never acknowledged, I was standing there he, simply read from his papers, and said that my parents were getting a divorce and, because I was 16 years of age I would, need to tell the court which parent, I chose, to live with I started. To cry so I turned, and ran out of the courtroom judge. Called for a 10-minute recess but, by the time my parents got outside I was, gone my, mother never saw me again for about seven years until I was a young adult contrary. To the movie my father never saw me where ever spoke to me again, in. The mid-1960s, running, away was very popular thing for young people a lot of them got caught up in haight-ashbury, the hippie scene the drug scene instead, I took a few belongings to my home packed him in a bag ordered. What was in the New Haven and Hartford railroad for, the short train ride down to Grand Central Terminal, in New York, my, father did own the stationary store in Manhattan, it was located on the corner of 40th and Madison, like all of us we had to work in that store so from the time I was about 13, I made deliveries, for my dad in the summer on a bike, I knew, the city very well so naturally, I started, looking for the same type of work there. Were a lot of signs on the window stock board delivery, boy part-time I'd walk, in and apply so, tell me young man how old here at. 16, how'd you go in high school at, tenth grade I'll hire you now I went to work for a small amount of money a few hours a day but.

I Soon realized that couldn't support myself on that amount of money I also realized, as long as people believed, I was 16, years old they. Weren't going to pay me any, more money at, 16, I was six foot tall I've always had a little gray hair my, friends in school used to say that once a week when we dressed in a suit for mass I look more like a teacher so. I decided to lie about my age in New York we had a driver's license, at 16 back. Then it didn't have a photo on it just an IBM card so I altered one digit, of my date of birth I was, actually born in April of 1948. But I dropped the four converted, it to a three and that made me 26, years, old I walked, around applying, for the same type of work people gave me a little more money few, more hours but, even then it was very difficult, to make ends meet one. Of the few things I had taken when I left home was a checkbook, I had money from work on the summers I had some money in that checking account so every so often I would write a check to supplement, my income $20. $25. The, funds were there the checks were good but, it was my friends, my peers who would constantly, say to me you know you're, the only guy no walks into a bank in the middle of Manhattan you have no account there you, don't know a soul you, talked to somebody behind a desk and they. Okay your check oh well, my checks are good yeah but if I walked in there they wouldn't touch my check you, walk in there they don't bat an eye now, years later reporters. Would write and speculate, and say that that was my upbringing mannerisms. Dress appearance, speech whatever it was was very easy to do so consequently. When the money right now I kept writing those checks, of, course the cheque started to bounce please, started looking for me as a runaway so I thought maybe it was a good time to start thinking about leaving, New York City but, I was quite apprehensive about, going to Chicago or. Miami wondered if they've cash in New York check on a New York driver's, license, in Miami as, quickly as they did in Manhattan, I was. Walking at 42nd, Street when afternoon, about five o'clock in the evening 16, years old pondering, all of these things when I started, to approach the front door of an old hotel that used to be there called. The Commodore, hotel now the Grand Hyatt just. As I was about to get to the front door of the hotel out stepped, in Eastern airline flight crew onto, the sidewalk I couldn't, help but notice the captain, the copilot, the flight engineer, about three or four flight attendants, dragging their bags to the curb to load him in the van to take them to the airport as they.

Loaded The man I thought to myself that's. It, I could, pose as a pilot, I could, travel all over the world for free I probably, could get just about anybody, anywhere, to cash a check for, me so, I walked up the street little further to 42nd. And Park went to cross over I heard a huge helicopter so. I looked up and there was New York Airways landing, on the roof for the Pan Am building Pan. Am the nation's flag carrier, the airline that flew around the world I thought, what a perfect airline. To use so. The next day I placed a phone call to the executive, corporate offices, of Pan Am I remember. Distinctly when, the phone was ringing I had absolutely, no idea what. I was going to say when, they answered Pan American Airlines, good morning can I help you yes. Ma'am, I'd. Like to I'd. Like to speak to somebody in the purchasing. Department purchasing. One, moment the clerk came on and say yes American out me my name is John. Black I'm a co-pilot with the company based out of San Francisco been, with the company about seven years but never, had anything like this come up before what's, the problem well we flew a trip in here yesterday we're. Going out later today. Yesterday. I sent my uniform, out through the hotel to have a dry clean now, the hotel, and the cleaners said they can't find it yeah, I'm with the flight in about four hours new uniform, don't, you have a spare uniform, certainly, back home in San Francisco, but I never get it in time for my flight I do, understand, this will cost you the price of uniform not the company that, I understand, hold, on I'll be right back you came back and said my supervisor, says you need to go down to the well-built, uniform company on Fifth Avenue they're our supplier, I'll, call them let them know you're on the way well that's exactly what I wanted to know so I went down to the well-built Uniform, Company, little. Fella mr. Rosen fitted me out in the uniform that black gabardine with. Three gold stripes on the arm I certainly looked old enough to be the pilot when, he was all done I said how much do you wear the uniforms, 286 dollars said no problem I write you a check no. We. Can't take any checks oh well. They're not alum I'll just pay your cash now we can't accept cash you need to fill out this computer card then your needs boxes, put your employee number then, we build this back on the uniform allowance comes, out of your necks payin em paycheck that's even better go ahead and do that. New. York had two airports LaGuardia. And Kennedy, LaGuardia, was 20 minutes from Manhattan Kennedy. Was 50 naturally, LaGuardia, being the closer of the two that's where I went I spent, most of the morning walking around LaGuardia, in the uniform trying to figure out now that I had this uniform, of the hell Deegan on these planes I, got.

A Little hungry so about lunchtime I walked in the luncheonette, and the terminal sat down at the counter on the stool in order to sandwich moments. Later a TWA, crew walked in the, flight attendants, sat in the booth but the pilots up at the counter on either side of me and captain right next to me now, back before deregulation. Of the airlines airline, people thought of themselves as, just one big family so, they didn't hesitate a moment to talk to each other and the captain kind of leaned over a young. Man I was Pan Am doing doing. Just fine captain, tell me what's Pan Am doing out here LaGuardia, Pan Am doesn't fly into LaGuardia they only fly into Kennedy, well. I picked up on that right away. Yeah. We came into Kennedy I had a layover so I came over to visit some friends matter of fact I'm on my way back to Kennedy now, so tell me young man what type of equipment are you on our airline people have a lot of jargon for things one of them is they never call a plane a plane or an aircraft they. Call it equipment and what type of equipment here I mean what type of plane do you fly back then the dc-8 at 707, of, course I didn't know that and I thought type, of equipment, why are the. Equipment I'm on as this stool they. Must mean what type of equipment is on the planes I fly so, I thought where they got the wings I, got the engine it, always had a sticker on the engine who manufactured. The engine so I said yes General Electric all three pilots kind of just stopped eating and leaned over the captain, said oh really what do you fly washing, machine so I knew I said the wrong thing out the door I went. Everybody. Have an airline ID, card, a plastic, laminated, card much like a driver's, license today yet without the ID card the uniform, was worthless I went back to Manhattan pretty, discouraged, thinking where would I come up with a pan-american airline, corporate, ID, I was, sitting in the hotel room I noticed a big thick Manhattan, yellow pages so I pulled him down on the bed flipped him open and looked under the word identification. There. Were three or four pages of companies who made convention, badges metal badges plastic, badges police badges fire, just hard to call around and finally one company said listen. Most of those airline IDs, manufactured. By Polaroid 3m. Company you to call one of them finally. Got the 3m company on the phone in Manhattan, you know we manufacture. Pay names identification. System, along. With a number.

Of Other carriers how come so, today I'm a purchasing officer for a major US carrier I'm in New York just for the day we're, getting ready to expand the routes are a lot of new employees go to a formal ID we're. Very impressed with this Pan Am format one that if I came by our office this afternoon briefly, we could discuss quantity, and priced by all means come on by so, I went by dressed in a suit and the sales were Pope in the book yeah we do United Braniff, national, Pan Am panem, we. Like this Pan Am format, wouldn't. If you have a sample I could bring back sure, I'll be right back and he brought me back a 5x7, glossy. Piece of paper with a picture, of an ID card blown up in the middle of it someone, else's picture in the picture John, Doe for a name and in, bold red ink across the front this is a sample, only I said no I'm afraid this one do you know I need to bring back an actual physical, card and by the way what, is all this equipment on the floor but now we don't just sell these cards we sell the system camera, laminator, oh we have to buy all this absolutely. But, hey what students you have to buy it all why don't we just demonstrate, our works and use me fine ever see right here took, my picture. I was. Going down the elevators studying the card it had a blue border across the top about 1/2 inch in Pan Am's color blue but not a single thing on the card said Pan Am no logo, no insignia no, company, name this. Is a plastic, card like a credit card so you couldn't type on it couldn't write on it couldn't, print on it discourage. To put it in my pocket headed, back to the hotel as. I was walking back I noticed it I had passed a hobby shop so I turned around and walked back excuse, me sir I see sell a lot of models here there's some models of commercial, jetliners, sure, over there and, I bought a model of a Pan Am 707. Cargo, jet took, it back to my room open, the box through all the parts out but there at the bottom of the box was a sheet of decals one, on the model and when soaked in a glass of water the little Pan Am blue globe that would went on the tail of the plastic, plane went, perfect up at the top of the plastic card and the, word Pan Am and their special styling a graphics that would have went on the fuselage, went perfect across the top of the card and, the clear decal on the laminated, plastic, made a beautiful, identification. Card Pan, Am says they estimate, that between the ages of 16, and 18, I flew, more than a million miles for free boarded more than 260. Commercial, aircraft in more than 26, countries around the world, Pan, Am says keep in mind the fact that Frank Abagnale did in fact pose as one of our pilots for a long period, of time he, never once stepped, on board one, of our aircraft, that's true I never, flew on Pan Am because, I was afraid someone might say to me you know I'm based in San Francisco been, out there 16, years I don't, recall him meeting you before or, someone might say you know your ID card is not exactly, like. My ID card so instead, I flew, on everyone else if I wanted to go somewhere I literally, just walked out to the airport walked, up on the board United, flight 800. To Chicago, then I went downstairs to, the door marked United operations, and walked, in the, operations, clerk hey Pan Am what can we do for you it's, 1:00 if the jump seats open on 800 needed it at Chicago, it's open this evening like to get a pink slip past I'd give my ID drive me out of path I'd walk out handed to the flight attendant she'd, opened the door to the cockpit and I'd, step in and a captain a co-pilot a flight engineer and a seat behind the captain, called the jumpsuit where pilots company. Time now. Because pilots love to talk shop once, you picked up that jargon, it was the same conversation. Over and over and over so, I just step on board image and Bob Davis be running to Chicago on the taxi, out always, the same question so Bob how long you been with Pan Am been. Flying about seven years or position, you fly right, seat which is airline, terminology. For a co-pilot what, type of equipment are we on had that one down perfect. Matter-of-fact, whatever, they flew I didn't fly so no, problem with that, and we'd arrive in Chicago I'd, go by the Pan Am ticket counter but just enough to get the attention of the passenger, service rep excuse me having laid over here and over a year we still at the apartment, house Hilton downtown catch, the crew bus low level door throughout I go, down the Parma House Hilton walk in and on the corner of the registration, down was, a little sign said airline, cruise that, was a three-ring, binder, you've signed in referenced, your flight number showed your ID they'd, give me a key I'd stayed two or three days in pain and would be direct billed for my room and my meals I also.

Could Cashed a personal, check at the front desk because I was unemployed the airline airline had a contract, with the hotel and as a courtesy they'd cash your check but then I found out that every airline honors, every other airline, employees, personal check actually a reciprocal, agreement still practiced today in, 2017. So, at the San Francisco Airport a delta flight attendant, can walk up to an American, airline ticket counter show her ID and cash, a personal, check up to $100, and vice versa of, course when I found that out I'd go out to JFK or LAX or me I'd go to everybody, North East National KLM, Air Gramm it would take me a good eight hours stopping at every counter, in every building by the time I got all the way around the other end of the airport at least eight hours have gone by and what did you have an eight hours shift change new people so I'd go all the way back around the other. As. You know I went on to impersonate a doctor, in a Georgia hospital, for a while I took, the bar exams in Louisiana, passed the bar went to work for Attorney General PF grimian on the Civil Division of the state court where I spent about a year practicing. Law in both the job is the lawyer and the doctor no one ever doubted for a second I was not eligible, or qualified, to do so I on, my own resigned. And moved, on of, course like any criminal sooner, or later you'd get caught and I was no exception to that rule I was actually arrested, just once in my life when I was 21 years old by the French police in a small town in southern France calm. On PA the. French police were actually arresting, me on an Interpol, warrant issued by the Swedish, police who were looking for me for forgery, in Sweden, but believe that I was living in France when. The French authorities took, me into custody on that warrant they realized, I had forged checks all over France so they refused to honor the warrant and Sweden's. Request for my extradition, they. Later convicted me of forgery, and sent, me to French prison, I served. My time in a place called de maison the array the house of arrest and a small-town southern friends, called Pepin Yong Steven. Speilberg, toh Barbara Walters it was extremely, important, to me to go back to that cell to, the exact, cell he. Was in and reconstruct, it according. To the logbooks during his stay there he. Said to my amazement that was a blanket, on the floor no mattress, a hole in the floor to go to the bathroom no plumbing no, electricity, he. Said according to the logbooks I entered the prison at 198. Pounds left. The prison at a hundred and nine pounds, when, my sentence was over in France I was extradited to Sweden where, I was later convicted of forgery in a Swedish court of law and sent, to a Swedish Penitentiary. In Malmo. Sweden when. My prison term was up in Sweden US federal authorities took custody a man returned me to the United States eventually, a United, States federal, judge, in Atlanta, Georgia would, sentence me to 12 years in federal, prison I served. Four of the twelve years at a federal prison in Petersburg, Virginia when. I was 26, years old the government offered to take me out of prison on the condition I go to work with an agency of the federal government, for the remainder of my sentence, or, until, my parole had been satisfactorily. Completed, I agreed. And was. Released this, year I'm celebrating, 41, years at the FBI I have been at the bureau for more than four decades I work. Out of Washington, DC I actually, make my home in Charleston South Carolina. So every Monday I fly up to Washington, about an hour flight and I go home on Thursday. Evenings I live, in Charleston with my one and only wife of 40-plus, years and, my, three sons my. Youngest boy graduated, from the University of Beijing, in China he went on to get his master's degree, there he reads writes and speaks Chinese, fluently he. Works for a San Francisco, gaming, company called Glu Mobile he, designs gaming, games. For the Chinese market all, of his games are in Chinese and they're in their fourth generation, as mobile, games and devices, my. Middle son graduated, for University of Nevada and Las Vegas his, degree was in business he and his wife graduated.

Together And he. And her own a business in South Carolina, and they manage that business together, my. Oldest son graduated, for University, of Kansas at kayuu he went on to Loyola School of Law in Chicago, to get his law degree passed the bar in Illinois and went on to make his dad very very proud he's an FBI agent he's. Been in the bureau about 12 years he supervises, a team that deals with American, citizens kidnapped, overseas, so they're a response, team that operates, out of Quantico Virginia. As, many, of you know I had very little to do with the film. I would, have preferred not to had a movie made about my life I actually raised, my three boys in Tulsa Oklahoma in the same house for, 25, years my neighbors had no idea who, I was and, I, would have preferred it stayed that way but Steven Spielberg told Barbara Walters he felt compelled tell the world of story not. Because of what I did but because of what I'd done was, my life after, that he. Loved the redemption, side of the story, wanted the world to know the story so. In the end my family, and I were very pleased with the outcome of, the film but we thought in a couple years that would all be forgotten and move on with our life I never, dreamed that catch me if you can would go on to earn more than a billion dollars for DreamWorks and be shown over and over literally, every week on HBO, and TV and then, become a Broadway. Musical and. TV. Show so consequently, every Monday, when I come to work I have emails they, come from all over the world, someone. Who's seeing the movie for the first time watching the play at a community, theater or a high school somewhere. And they, feel compelled to write and of. Course they come from people literally, as young as 8 years old sending, those emails to people as old as 80, most, people assume I'll never read those emails or see those emails but they feel compelled, to write and they want to make a statement some, say you know. You. Were brilliant you are an absolute, genius I was, neither I was, just a child, and. A min brilliant, had it been a genius I don't, know that I would have found it necessary to break the law, in order to just simply. Survive and. While I know that people are fascinated, by what I did some 50 years ago as a teenage, boy I've, always looked upon what I did is something that was immoral illegal. Unethical, and a burden I live with literally. Every single day of my life and will. Until. My death, there. Are many who write and say well you know you were certainly gifted, that, it was I was. One of those few children that got to grow up in the world with, the daddy now, the, world is. The. World is full of fathers. But. There are very few men worthy, of. Being called daddy by, their child I had. A daddy loved. His children more. Than he loved life itself, Steven. Spielberg told Barbara Walters the Mehra research, Frank's use now without having met Frank I couldn't. Help but put his father in the film so the likes of Christopher Walken my, father was a man who had four children three boys and a daughter. Every. Night at bedtime, he'd, walk into your room he was six three he. Would drop down on one knee kiss you on the cheek pull the cover up and he put his lip up, on your earlobe and he'd whisper deep into your I love you I love, you very much he. Never ever. Missed. A night as. I. Grew older I sometimes fell, asleep before he got home but I always woke up the next morning knew. He had been back my bedside, years. Later my older brother joined me in my room temporarily. He was in the Marine Corps he was six for it played semi, pro-football for Buffalo but, my father would walk around to his bed hug him kisum.

Whisper, Nazir he loved him when. I was 16 years old I was just a child all 16. Year olds are. Just children. Much. As we'd like him to be adults, they're. Just children it. Like all children they, need their mother and they. Need their father all. Children, need their mother and their. Father all. Children, are entitled to, their. Mother and their. Father and. Though, it is not popular, to say so, divorce. Is a very devastating, thing for a child to deal with and then, have to deal with the rest of their natural life. For. Me a complete, stranger a judge told me I had to choose one parent, over the other that, was a choice of 16 year old boy could not make so. I ran how. Could I tell you my life was glamorous I cried myself to sleep till, I was 19 years old I spent, every birthday Christmas, Mother's Day Father's Day in a hotel, room somewhere in the world where. People didn't speak my language the. Only people that associated. With me were people who believed me to be their peer, 10 years older than I actually was, I never. Got to go to his senior prom High School football games, share a relationship, with someone my own age I always. Knew. I'd get caught only, a fool we. Think otherwise the. Law sometimes, sleeps, but. The law never dies I was. Caught I went, to some very bad places my. Boys have grown up asking their mother why is it that Dad gets up in the middle of the night and goes down the TV room because you know he doesn't turn the TV on he, just sits there all night that's, because they're things you can't forget things. You're not meant to forget well. I was sitting in that pitch-black selim friends my father 57. Was climbing the subway stairs of New York as he did every day he was in great physical shape he. Just happened to trip he. Reached his arm to break his fall he slipped hit his head on a railing laying. It at the bottom of the step he was dead I didn't. Know he was dead I was, thinking about him how much I couldn't wait to see him hold him hug him kiss him tell him how sorry I was, but. I never got the opportunity to. Do that I was. Very fortunate, because I was raised in a great country where, everyone gets, the second chance, I owe, my country, 800, times more than I can ever repay it over. These past four decades that. Is why I'm at the FBI today. 32. Years, after the federal court order expired. Requiring. Me to do so I have. Turned down three pardons, from three sitting presidents, of the United States because.

I Do not believe nor will, I ever believe, that a piece of paper will. Excuse, my actions, that. Only in the end my. Actions, will. 40. Plus years ago on an undercover assignment and used in Texas, I met my wife when the, assignment, was over I broke protocol, to, tell her who I really was I didn't. Have a dime to my name but. I eventually asked, her to marry me against. The wishes of her parents she, did I. Could. Sit up here and tell you that I was born again I, saw, the light prison. Rehabilitated. Me but, the truth is God. Gave me a wife she. Gave me three beautiful children she. Gave me a family and she changed my life she. And she. Alone, everything. I have everything, I've achieved Who, I am today because of love of a woman and the respect. Through boys have for their father, something. I would never ever jeopardize. There. Comes a time in all of our lifetime, we grow older and eventually we're. Fortunate enough we have children and as. Every parent knows whether your child's three months old or 38. Years old when. You lay your head on a pillow at night you're, just about to close your eyes the, last thing you think about last. Thing you're worried about are. Your children so. If you still have your mother, you. Still have your father you. Give him a hug you, give him a kiss you, tell them you love them while, you can and. To those men in the audience both young and old I would remind you what it truly is to actually, be. A man it, has absolutely nothing, to do with money. Achievements. Skills. Accomplishments. Degrees. Professions. Positions. A real. Man. Loves, his wife a real. Man is faithful to. His wife and a real. Man next to God in his country, put. His wife and his children as the most important, thing in, his life, Steven. Spielberg made a wonderful film, but I've done nothing greater, nothing, more rewarding nothing, more worthwhile nothing, makes actually brought me more peace more joy more happiness, more content, in my life than. Simply being a good husband a good, father and. What I strive to be every day of my life a great daddy god bless you and thanks for coming this morning. We we have a bunch of questions both, from. The audience as well as some people have sent in so we'll take some questions I'll, be happy to answer. Do. You have any advice for Googlers, who are feeling impostor. Syndrome, the. Insecure, feeling, that. They're not nearly, as good at their jobs, at. Their job as their colleagues believe they are and how. Did you stay confident, or did you when, you, knew you were you were in an impostor, you. Know people. Always say to me you know you were brilliant you're genius, no I wasn't, adolescent, and that, was why I was successful. I was so young that I had no fear of being caught I was, so yard that I didn't think about consequences. Everything. I did was not, premeditated. Everything. Was done by opportunity. Or by chance so. If in fact I was standing out in front of a bank in Manhattan, with a $500. Check there, was never a plan I didn't say to myself I'm, going in cashes. Check if they say this I'll do this if they do this I'll do that I just went in and did it and I. Felt that there was nothing I couldn't do I had tremendous confidence.

In Myself, but. Everything, was for a reason so, I saw that airline crew I never dreamed about getting on planes or staying in hotels around the world for free all I saw, was a uniform, and said to myself if, I had that uniform, on and I walked in a bank it would be a lot easier to cash a cheque than me walking in is just some young kid so the, whole thing was to get a uniform and do that but, then I quickly realized, the power of that uniform, how it turned from night to day no one ever said no when I walked in to cash a check even though there was no bank account there or, anything else all they saw was a uniform, they didn't see me and, I realized very earlier on the power of that uniform. And then I realized, I had gone to the TWA, ticket counter just like he showed in the movie I was, going to purchase an airline, ticket and the ticket agent said, to me are you riding for free are you buying the ticket and I, said riding for free yeah you armed the jump see and I. Learned about the jump seats and then I flew around the world for free everything I did I did by, chance. I've moved into an apartment complex, in, Atlanta, I said it was a doctor, because I didn't want to write down airline. Pilot they were looking for me with, that airline pilot, so I said it was a doctor. I said, pediatrician. Because was a singles, complex, and there were only single people living there and then, I met a doctor who lived there and then he took me up to the hospital and I met people so I ended up at the hospital, I dated, a flight attendant, whose father was the Attorney General, in Louisiana, I told, her that I had gone to law school but I never practiced law instead I wanted to be a pilot and got, furloughed, from the airline so she, introduced. Me to her dad and I went to work everything was all these opportunities, but always the confidence, that, I could pull it off and that that, became just. From age but, if you believe that you're good at what you do and you, strive to be good at what you do you don't need to worry about what other people think you need to be able to understand, that you have your own confidence, that you can do whatever it is you're required to do and other. People will see that confidence, in you the minute you start doubting, yourself other, people will see the that you're doubting yourself and that becomes a weakness, in your personality, they always want to be confident, and everything you do that you can do it you can get it done you'll find a way to get it get, it done, obviously. Technology has evolved quite a bit since you were going, around and things like that would somebody be able to accomplish something, similar today even with. Yeah. You know I get asked that a lot actually, it's sorry, to say but 4,000. Times easier today than when I did it, technology. Breeds crime it, always has and it, always will and there will always be people willing to use technology. In a, self-serving. Way. So, you know I always use the example that, when I used to forge checks, I needed, a Heidelberg printing press it took me about 12 months to learn that press, that. Was a million dollar printing press it was 90 feet long 18 feet, high it, required three journeyman, operators, to operate it so I bill scaffoldings, on either sides of the press so I could eliminate the other two positions, and because I was a teenager, I was able to run the length of that press but, there were color separations. There were negatives, there were chemicals, you had to work with there were plates you had to make there, was typesetting, involved, today. One, just opens a laptop, and decides. To forge an counterfeit, a check they first bring up a diagram of a check with a little security background, in it and then. They go and look on who is checked in and afford so if I'm gonna Forge for example into its check, I go, to their company's. Website, capture, their logo and put it up on the corner of the left part top of the check I put, in their corporate address I might, put some stuff in the background and, step and repeat patterns, or whatever it is I'm designing and in, 15 minutes I have a four color beautiful. Check prettier, than the real check they use up on my website now. In the old days you de would have said to me you know this. Check you printed from Pan Am I have to admit pretty, awesome it's, amazing for, color it, looks terrific, but. Let me ask you this how do you know where Pan Am banks I have no idea where they're bank so I'm just making up a bank's name Chase. Manhattan Bank One, Chase Plaza New York you know how, do you know what the account number is I have no ideas I'm just making up a bunch of numbers, how. Do you know who the authorized, signer is I don't know I'm just signing somebody's, Joe, black whatever name on that check but, we live in a way too much information, world today so once I forge in to its check every.

Forger, Calls their victim, twice. Because. Every forger will tell you a victim will tell me everything I need to know so. When he calls he would have simply said like to speak to someone in accounts, receivables, sure one moment counts. Receivables, can I help you I was, getting ready to pay an invoice you sent us but we prefer to wire you the funds just needed wiring instructions yes, so we bank with Bank of America or account numbers 1 7, 6 8 5 3 they tell you right on the phone you, can call any company, and just tell them you're gonna wire the money they're going to tell you where they bank on what street their account number but, you need on the check so I captured the bank's logo I put it on the check up with the mickr line down on the bottom and I hang up and call back into. A corporation, gonna help you yeah I'd like to speak to someone in your corporate. Communications. Sure, one moment corporate. Communications, can help you yeah, wonder if you be so kind as to mail me a copy of your annual report sure, send you one out today on page, three is a signature, of the chairman of the board the CEO the CFO. White, glossy paper black ink camera-ready, art scan, it digitize it put it on the check, the, technologies, made it much much easier when, we talk about IDs. Making. An airline ID today would be very simple with the technology, that's available. Today. So all of those things are a lot easier as, I, used to say that would be a little more difficult for me to get on an aircraft today, posing, as a pilot, but if you ever go to the airport and watch the crews go through the airport they just simply hold up a card and they go through the airport that anyone, could make that card with today's software and technology. That's available to anybody so a technology. Certainly made a lot easier, so that's why we are constantly making, technology to counter the, use of technology, by criminals, and to make it more difficult for them to convert, that technology, into a negative idea. In, your candid opinion did, Leonardo, DiCaprio, and Tom Hanks do justice, t-to. Urine, Joseph, cheese respective. Roles in. The, movie yeah. You know I'm I'm not a big movie person so I don't I've, watched very little television this is most of my life not just something I took up even as a kid I didn't watch a lot of television I, don't watch a lot of television now, and I certainly very rarely go to movies, and so. When. It was announced that Leo head was, the person picked to play the part I really knew nothing about him my. Sons weren't too happy that it was Leo but, I didn't, I didn't know anything about him so I went to the movies and saw street gangs of New York and i. Said to myself sitting, there how would this person portray. A person 16. Years old he, had a beard, he was at the time he filmed, that movie was about 27, 28 years old I thought. No one's gonna believe this guy's 16, but because I'd never saw the script I didn't know if maybe Spielberg, was making the character, a lot older, and not a teenager, now, when the movie came out it was quite amazing that Leo starts, out in the film at 14, then he's 16, and he's 18, and he's 21, he, is an amazing character actor, and he took the role and he did an amazing job of playing the role Tom.

Hanks's Character, was actually named Joe Shea SH, EA he was an Irishman from Boston, Joe, Shea was my supervisor, at the FBI after I came out of prison I answer, directly to him he and I were friends for thirty years until, his death I've, written five books on, crime the last book I wrote stealing, your life I dedicated, that book to him and our 30 year relationship but. He was an Irishman from Boston in which Tom Hanks, he didn't want his real name used, so Tom Hanks used the name of an old football player and took. That name, call Hanratty, but, if you were watching the screen for me it was like watching him he looked like him he sounded, like him he had his mannerisms, they, did an amazing job both, of them and portraying, the parts of real people that were still, living at that time. So. First of all as a father your statement. Was just time each tearing. So I can say anything about that I mean that's totally practical, with the equifax, hacks and the anthem hacks that everyone in this room has been probably, affected, by one of the other is. There anything we can do as citizens, to. Protect ourselves or, is it a lost cause no, I'll tell you what to do but let me explain this to you that is where I when I went to the FBI forty-one, years ago I worked undercover for. A long period of time then, I went into the field and dealt with counterfeits, and forgeries, embezzlement. Financial. Crimes in the last 20 years I've dealt with only cyber related, crimes. So, I spend, most of my time with breaches, I have worked every breach back, to t.j.maxx, 15. Years ago and this, is what I've learned first. Of all every. Single breach, every. Breach occurs, because, somebody, in that company, did. Something, they weren't supposed to do or, somebody. In that company, failed to do something, they. Were supposed, to do hackers. Do. Not cause breaches. People. Do and. Every. Breach comes down to that so in the case of Equifax, they didn't update their infrastructure, they didn't fix the patches, that should have put in place they, were very negligent, and what, they were doing so, the hacker waited, for the door to open so. When you interview a hacker the hacker will say to you look I can't get into Chase Bank the truth is they spend about a half a billion dollars a year on technology every, 12 months they. Spend a half a billion dollars of their profit, on putting. Technology and software in their bank to keep me out. However, they, employ, 200,000. People worldwide, all. I have to do is wait for one, of those people. To, do something they weren't supposed to do or fail to do what, they were supposed to do and that'll, open the door for. Me to get in. When. You steal, credit card numbers like Home Depot target. At t.j.maxx that's, stealing credit cards and debit card information that. Has a very short, short shelf life so you have to get rid of it very very quickly but. If I steal your name your. Social security number and your, date of birth you, can't change your name you. Can't change your social security number you. Can't change your date of birth so. Those people warehouse. That data for. Two to three years so we, won't even see that surface, for. At least a couple of years before some of that will start to surface the data that was stolen whatever. Number they start with I think was 143. Million then it became 146. Million it was a million, driver's, licenses now it's ten point six million driver's, licenses, all. Breaches start with very low numbers, before they let you know the actual true number so it's probably about two hundred and forty million pieces. Of information that was stolen but. I remind, people all the time that they're, going to warehouse that data so, buying one year credit monitoring service, is absolutely, worthless because, nothing's going to happen in a year and if, you really analyze. Equifax. They were very unethical in what, they did they, thought to themselves first, of all they sold a bunch of stock knowing, that it was going to come out that was worse but. Then they stat there and said how do we make a profit from this was our mistake but how we turn this around into a profit. So, they sat there and said what we'll do is we'll, offer millions, and millions of people one year credit, monitoring service, for free they'll. Sign up and in a year from now we'll simply, say that data hasn't really surfaced yet you, need to be enrolled automatically, into our program, which is $20.00, a month so they're going to make millions and millions of dollars with automatic.

Enrollment. Into their, their program. If, you've been a Bri if you have been a subject, of that breach there's only two things you can do and two things only one, you can freeze your credit. Each date varies, about that so some states freezing, your credit is free other states there's a fee associated with, it typically. Ten dollars to freeze it eighteen, dollars to unfreeze, it ten dollars to freeze it again, so. For the last two years I've testified before, Congress, and you go to my website at Abagnale calm you'll see me testifying, before Congress, telling them that they, need to put, a federal law across the 50 states that allow anyone to freeze their credit at any time and unfreeze, it and anytime there should be no reason that there should be a fee associated with it because, then that becomes a deterrent, to people actually. Freezing. Their. Credit, so. You can freeze your credit that's, one thing you can do and then you unfreeze it if you need it if. It's not too much of a hassle and then the only other thing is to monitor your credit so I've used a credit monitoring service, since 1992. So, for about 25, years I've been using, a service I think they charge me like 12, dollars a month the, reason I like it I I can monitor my own credit I don't need them all they've given me for that 12 dollars is the ability to go on my keyboard and a few strokes and bring, up my credit reports, instantly, on my screen and up, on my screen comes, all three reports. Equifax. Experian TransUnion, at. The top is my score for the moment of that day what, my credit score is at those three agencies then. I can scroll down and look at my credit and I can say to myself you know I paid this car off like four months ago they still show that I owe money to this bank I'll, correct, that and I, can go all the way down and see every inquiry made on my credit that's what we call hard and soft in choirs and, that's, your employer checking, your credit the IRS checking your credit your, insurance company, checking your credit or a credit card you applied for and they're, checking your credit so. I really don't need them but, for fee, they're. Also monitoring, my credit as well so, they're checking my credit and they're letting me know in real time if someone attempts to use my social, security number to get a job open a bank account or, whatever the case may be so to me it's worth, using. That now. One, other tip I'll give you is I don't own a debit card I've, never owned one I've never allowed my threes, to. Possess one certainly. And truly the worst financial tool, ever, given to the American consumer. So. A long time ago I asked, myself a simple question, how would I remove, 99.9. Percent of my personal, liability. Like. That where. They really don't to worry about all these things, so. I use the safest form of payment that exists on the face of the earth and that is a credit. Card. Credit. Card Visa. MasterCard. American Express Discover card not, debit, credit, but. Credit card every. Day of my life I spend, their money I don't spend my money my money sits in a money market account it earns interest actually nobody knows where it is because it's not exposed to anybody to find it it's just sitting there I go, to the dry cleaner I give my card I pick up the groceries I give my card I put, fuel in my boat on the weekend I use my card I pay the marina to keep my boat in the water all year long they put the rent on my credit. Card I travel. All over the world while. I wait to get reimbursed, I use my credit card if I need euros I go to the ATM machine I use my credit card I'm not going to use my debit card to get euros overseas, or pounds. And Great Britain and, every. Day I use my card and then if, I pay the bill in full a part of the bill my credit score goes up so, I'm building credit, while I'm using that credit card and if. Tomorrow and I'll do everything to protect my information, but if tomorrow someone. Gets my card number and charges. 1, million. Dollars. On my, credit card by federal law my. Liability, is zero I have no liability so, yes I love to shop online I don't use a special, card I just use my credit card if they don't deliver the merchandise if, they deliver it and it's broken if, the host site I went to was fictitious, to begin with I have no zero or less zero liability, when.

You Use your debit card every, time you reach for you're exposing the money in your account, the only person's going to get robbed as you when. You use your debit card you could use it for the next 50 years 20. Times a day you will not raise your credit score by. That much and of. Course when you use your debit card you. Are liable, up to a certain amount and it takes a while in, order to get that debit card fixed so when we do post investigations. At breaches, and we, say to someone, on your incident what happened well I was in target but I used a Visa card so I don't know nothing I got a they canceled my card the next day two, days later FedEx, sent me a new card and that was the last I heard about it what about you and, I used a debit card there that took three thousand, dollars out of my checking account it took me two months to get my money back why they said they were investigating, I had to pay my rent had kids tuition everything. I couldn't pay it because they had my money so. I do it for that so I had three sons that went off to college and I said to them I'm not giving you a debit card I've actually. Applied for a credit card in your name so it's, your card of course you're 18 you have no credit, so I guaranteed, the card so. As a guarantee, of the card three, things take place one. The, bill comes to me and I'm responsible for the bill so if you spend a lot of time in the bar I'm going to know that too, I set. The limit on the card so whatever I want you to spend each month is while you're at school I'll set that limit third, every month that I pay the bill goes on your credit so. By the time you get out of college you should be looking at a credit score of about eight hundred you, want to buy a car buy a house buy a condo, you're, not going to need me to do that all three of my sons came out of college with grades, scores, of the round 800 one. Of the best things you can do for your kids is to teach them to learn. To use credit early, on and build credit in their name credit. Is a very important, thing thirty, years ago it only meant whether you got the car you got the house today everything is based on your credit the company hires you they're going to check your credit if, you buy auto insurance is gonna check your credit you buy life insurance is, gonna check your credit everything. Is based on your credit so you want to make sure that you maintain a, good credit and it's one of the best things you can do with your kids. Question. I wanted. To ask you more about the, FBI specifically. And kind of, hiring. And how you got in there is such an interesting story you. Know when I was younger I was really interested in you know working for the FBI worked, in fraud, and security. If. My boss is watching I'm very happy where I am right now but. I, couldn't. Believe how, difficult, it was to try, and get into public service I thought you know, you, know I was, willing to take a pay cut I was willing to move anywhere I was willing to do anything and, it. Was difficult I mean I was in touch with people at the FBI and they were super, nice and very helpful but I just couldn't believe that you know the background, checks and there's, no available jobs and you have to keep emailing me and oh you, don't have a lot of griot that's, not gonna matter and you, know again I ended up in a great spot so I'm happy but when. People ask me about public, service and working for these organizations I really, don't the. FBI is extremely. Tough, we have about 13,000. Agents, and, about 25,000. Support people who support the agent analysts, and things of that nature. Currently. We, take one in, every. 10,000. Applicants, to be an agent so, it is extremely difficult. To get in the FBI so. Just to share the story with you my oldest boy when he was about 14, I used to take my kids to the FBI. Academy which, is on a marine military base in Quantico, Virginia because I like to shoot guns on the range and I would take them up there when I was teaching class, they would be, out there with the instructor, shooting.

On The, range and I remember, distinctly. Coming. Back off the base which takes you about 20 minutes to get from the Academy, off to the base and when, we were riding through the base he said to me no dad this. Is what I want to do I want to become an, FBI, agent, I saw that's great son but you know they keep that in mind and so he graduated, from high school he said to me I really want to become a FBI. Agent I said that's great you know you got to go to college so, he went to school at University, of Kansas got his undergraduate, he. Always, thought he'd change his mind my. Wife always had a Christmas party for all the agents, until so we had about 200 FBI agents, in the state and, every. Christmas they would be at our home with their family, and he. Would go talk to all of them and Special, Agent in Charge who's, in charge of the entire state, he, would say to him yeah my son tried to get in but they. Turned him down he's, and he explained, to him that senators, sons have been turned down former, president's sons have been turned down has, nothing to do with, anything other than you and I kept emphasizing that, to him but, I kept thinking he changed his mind so when, he graduated from undergraduate school I said Sonia I would recommend you go to law school I have no desire to be a lawyer I said I understand, but if you really want to pursue the FBI and that would put you up a little higher and the, chances of getting in you went to Loyola School of Law I graduated, from law school the bureau requires, you pass the bar so he took the bar in Illinois pass the bar and then he went through the year-long process, of the process, that takes to apply to the bureau and. I got very worried because I'd say to my wife that you know I'm a little concerned because first. Of all I don't know if someone in management would like the fact that my son is an FBI agent, or, maybe someone, in management would look at it and say his dad has done so much for him for, them we need to look at his son it had absolutely nothing, to do, with that was all about him. And I. Always tell him every day he's living his life's dream so. He's he, got, it but it is very very tough, so when, the bureau came to me and they just a few years ago celebrated, their 100th anniversary. They did a big coffee table book and they talked about me in there as being, the only person they ever did that with. The. Whole thing to the bureau back then the director was Clarence Kelly who was the director of the bureau at that time he. Wanted the ability because he could say to me okay, you, are a lieutenant. In the Army, you have been in the Army this, many years your expertise, is this missile, I need. You to learn all of this in two weeks and I'm sending you to this base and I, want you to find out what's going on in this particular area, he. Knew that no matter what assignment, he gave me under cover I could go do it whether it was a scientist, at a lab in New Mexico whether, it was a doctor, in a hospital he.

Knew That I could get away with it make it believe people believe that I was that person without, any doubt and that's how they, used me, I. Think. That was their initial thing, and then of course when my time was up and again keep in mind that when I got that offer to me it was just an opportunity I, looked at it well opportunity, to get out of jail I I'm. Not going to sit here and tell you I was a change person that, I was a different person and when I went into prison I just, saw that as an opportunity to get out of prison so I was going to do it but. Then I you get involved with the men and women the FBI who obviously, it's, probably, the most ethical people who ever meet in your life they, have tremendous character, love of country love of family that. Kind of wears off on you and I. Started, to realize that you know I've met my wife and, I was becoming a husband, I'd take care of my wife had take care of children, fatherhood. All those things is what really changed my life wasn't, that I was rehabilitated. Or those, things changed my life so if it started out more as an opportunity, so, when my time was over and the court said his court order this ceases, to be he's free to do whatever he wants to do I made. The choice to stay there only because I thought, that I could. Bring. A lot to the bureau so the, bureau was very smart they realized very early on that I wouldn't be accepted, very well and so there was a great scene in the movie where Steven, Spielberg. Obviously. Knew that I was very very difficult for the agents, you keep in mind now this is back when there were no women agents no blacks, no Hispanics, everybody was a white agent, and they either graduated, from Harvard or they graduated, from Yale and they, all came from very good families and. It was a totally, different environment 40, years ago so, they all have really tunnel, vision once a criminal always a criminal so, they were not very very, happy with the fact that I came there, so he showed that scene of me walking in the office and that. The way people looked. At me that took years for me to turn that around took years for me to build their credibility. And of course in the first part of my career was out in the field so, as undercover so they really were dealing, with me so. When I finished, working on the cover that the, director, then simply, said you know what he needs to go to the Academy and teach class so, that every agent who comes to the Academy, they.

Will He will be their instructor, in one of their courses and they, will all know him so I've taught at the academy now, for well over 35, years I taught my son when he went through the Academy, three, generations of, agents, that, helped a great deal because they learned who I was early on knew who I was and that tamed, a lot of that but took a lot of lot of a lot of work to turn that around and build that credibility. I'm. Curious to know whether or not you continued. To fly even. After you were released from jail and, working. At the Bureau, as the, movie suggests or if that was a bit of Hollywood, in Belgium now you know when people ask me and, I saw, the movie in a movie theater, I've only seen the movie twice I've seen that trailer a thousand, times but I've only seen the movie twice so, when the media asked, me what I thought about the movie and what was right and what was wrong I said you know well first of all I have two brothers and a sister he portrayed portrayed, me as an only child in. Real life my mother never remarried as a scene in the movie where she's remarried as a little girl that didn't, really happen in. The real life I never saw my father after, I ran away in, the movie they keep having him come back to Christopher Walken and the film was nominated for the Academy Award for that role. As my father, that, didn't really happen I escaped. Off the aircraft, but I escaped, off the aircraft through the kitchen galley where they bring the food and stuff onto the plane and there they had me escape, through, the toilet my. Wife kind of looked at me said you didn't go through the toilet, yes I know honey go through the toilet. So. I thought he stayed very close, to the story but. Pretty. Much all of that where he was he was very concerned, about being accurate, first of all because it was a it was the first time he made a movie about a real person living. Second. The Bureau had an information, officer on the set for all the SH all the shooting, of the entire film to make sure that what he said about the FBI and what the comments, they made and all, that was accurate the agent, there was an agent from our information, officer on the on the, set and then of course is he. Later said I really got most of my information from, those were three retired, agents, because they said they their. Notes were so particular. And so accurate he said that when, I filmed, the scene in the hotel room I had, scripted, it and so. We're sitting there and I said read me your notes he said I entered the room with my gun pulled I heard, someone in the bathroom I ordered. Them to come out of the bathroom and this, is what happened, he, basically loved. His notes better than his script so he used his notes for the southern, film so I thought he did, a good job of staying very, very. Accurate, the movie I just, make a final comment you having. To deal with cyber now I'd like to write about crimes. The future, so. I always. Used to write to my class about. What, will we investigate, five years from now what, will an agent be doing five years from now and unfortunately. There's. Good news and there's bad news first, of all the good news we will be doing away with passwords. In the next 24, months passwords, will leave the world there, will be no more passwords, there. Is a new technology called true Sona that's T ru s. Ona. Stands, for true persona it. Is a company in Scottsdale, Arizona that, created, a technology for the CIA which. We have used now for the last few years that, technology. And, I was an advisor on that technology, for the CIA so, I'm an advisor and bringing it to the commercial world but. It was the ability for an agent to send data back. From the, field such as Afghanistan on, their iPhone and that. Langley, would. Know 100%, that, is. The agent on the other end to 100%, identify.

The. Person on the other end of the device that's. A level for security so, that they, basically said what if we brought this to level 2 security. And, we did away with passwords. So, immediately, when they announced that Microsoft, gave them 10 million dollars and said I'm in develop. It so Microsoft is going to use it on all their gaming all their access to their computers, etc. We. Now have the ability to identify who the person is on the other end of that device. And when you go to their website a true Sona they, actually show you how it's done so they demo. Videos there there are three or four minutes long let's show you how it's done and that's, great passports, are stack of passwords, or stagnant they should have been gone a long time ago, it's why we have most of the problems that we have today so, it is very important, that we get rid of passwords, in just in case you didn't know if we, take a bank like a Bank of America they, spend about six million dollars a month in their call center, resetting. Passwords cost. Them six million dollars a month so that would save that bank a hundred million dollars a year to eliminate, the use of passwords. So that's, the good part of it and I think that'll eventually do away with social security numbers you'll, still have a number of nine to you for, the government purpose but when I go buy a car I go, to the doctor I don't have to give them a number because they already know who I am, through my device so I won't have to provide a social security number so, I think that's a good part but, I do believe that cyber, it up until this point in time, has, been used for financial crimes or gathering, data and information. Which, is of value what's. Going to happen is we're going to see cyber very quickly now turn very black. So. We have the ability as you know to. Basically, shut, someone's pacemaker, off but, we have to be within 35, feet of them we test these device at Quantico, all the time so. As long as I walk up within 35 feet of you I take control of any bodily device you, have on you so if I want to assassinate you, I want, to speed it up take it down I can do that but. I believe that in five years you'll be able to do that from five thousand, miles away. We. Have the ability now that we test that we can chase a car down the interstate we got to get up with them thirty five feet of the vehicle we take over the vehicle we, shut the motor off we. Lock the person in the car we lock the power window so they can't open them we, can turn on their airbag, again. Five years from now you'd be able to do that five, thousand miles away, so. Yes our electrical, grid uses. A terrorist, tool the, ability to shut down an entire system, shut, down an entire banking, system, those. Are all the things that unfortunately, we'll be dealing with in the next four, or five years. As cyber starts,

He's a really good story teller

that last 20 minutes freaked me out

Almost has a Frank Underwood monologue rhythm to his speech. His narration is also impressive even if he has practiced/been giving similar talks for a long time.

This guy is cooler in real life then the movie

Absolutely no way I could have sat through this amazing lecture without shedding a tear. Amazing message.

so well said and spoken. amazing story and input on morals

JUST BRILLIANT !!!!!!!!!!!

I love Google

Forget the first 57:00 minutes. Listen to the rest after it. Real Terminator, SKYNET stuff FROM A GOVERNMENT SPOOK They have the TECH TO SHUT A PACEMAKER OF FROM 35 FT??? WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU INVENT THAT? Shutting car engines off from 5000 miles away?. Doing away with passports in 24 months and introducing a worldwide profile? What the fuck is wrong you people? Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Bebo, Reddit etc all that linked up social media and BROWSING was and is ABOUT GETTING ALL YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY STOCKPILED TO USE AGAINST YOU IN FUTURE. WHO ARE THE TERRORISTS? THE G OV ER N M E N T.

57:34 On their what!

Not Abagnahlee, not Abagnaylee, Abagnale.

here i am with a Felony, from a DUI accident where no one got hurt. 1st DUI ever at the age of 22. I still have the felony and do not work for the FBI. I would kill for that job.

Great story! Too bad J. Edgar Hoover, 1st director of FBI is not a "Daddy" promoting family values https://www.warnerbros.com/j-edgar

Ew? At least he's repentrepentrepent

Humans will suffer hard from their own stupidity. Like McDonald's french fries never mold.

Wouldn't it be the ultimate hoax if his story was fabricated?

No matter how prepared or rehearsed it may seem (he’s done this hundreds of times, I’m sure), you can still see how he was able to pull off so many scams.

Google inviting a fraud to speak... Makes sense

Irony...

Shut the fuck up you pathetic bitch. If you got nothing nice to say, then keep your fat fucking mouth closed you worthless piece of fucking shit. Go burn in fucking hell, you fucking faggot

Fantastic, Big brother is here.

What about Barry Allen?

Don't know about you guys, but after hearing all this in Awwww i wanna see that movie again

So what was his credit rating at it's highest and lowest?

beautiful story. well told. good lessons.

i wish i can be as articulate as him

fascinating. note his very specific and fantastically non-incriminating response to the question regarding flying after being caught. 54:19 I really enjoyed listening to this talk.

This sounds like he's either reading it off of cue cards (from the way he staggers the ends of sentences), or just reciting it from rehearsed memory. There was no need to video this.

some credit Gold nuggets here :D

Amidst all the movie references...this was an extremely good talk. Thank you Mr. Abagnale.

This guy is a real portrait of the power of white male privilege.

No.

The insignificance of your reply. Try harder, princess.

Way ahead of you, dumbshit. Try to keep up. https://www.facebook.com/groups/kingofcucks/

You are a real portrait of a useless cuck, and a whiny bitch! A male who should have a vagina or perhaps a female with a dick.

That's just stupid bullshit.

you've hit the nail on the head. He's not a bad guy, but there's no way any other demographic would have been able to get away with any of this, let alone eventually have a successful life afterwards.

wow great talk! What an amazing person!

A great talk from a fascinating person.

If you use a credit card at an ATM in Europe isn't that a cash advance, therefore subject to huge fees and not worth it?

This isn't true, I found out today. While BofA has special partners, it is only for using debit cards, not credit cards as Abagnale suggests. I don't know how you can travel abroad with just a credit card and avoid paying for very expensive cash advances

no, banks have special partners all around the world. For example, bank of america (USA) and Paris Bas (France) agree that when people travel, they can use their banks/ATMs as if they were the same institution

how bow dah

Awesome video, Not sold on Trusona. Just seems to be a tool to take two factor authentication away. Really not a great idea.

Chase bank is the most hacked bank in the world!

Sounds like in 5 years society has started thinking like hackers'

You can tell that this man is special... too bad he got involved in law.

me encanta todo

This man is a hopeless romantic

That certainly is the impression he wishes to convey.

what is his email

"A child needs its mother, and its father. All children do. All Children are entitled to a mother and a father". What a terrible cis-gendered heteronormative perspective hosted and promoted by Google. That is hate speech. And it marginalizes the efforts by LGBTQ+ parents and single mothers everywhere. Google should censor itself off youtube and the internet as a whole!!! lol.

are you serious? hope the "lol" means not

His new way of thinking has worked for him and the people he's surrounded himself with for his whole adult life, so I find it hard to knock the guy for not softening his statements when the translations can be implied and understood and there's a different understanding than the one your mind has highlighted for you. If you take a moment and think of alternative interpretations that are less offensive to you, they're all more likely closer to the truth, so go with the odds, and you'll love the results, or so I've told or read or just thought

Sounds completely rehearsed

he's probably invited to speak a lot

spectrum

wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was so wonderful

"A real man loves his wife. A real man is faithful to his wife. And a real man, next to God and his country, put his wife and his children as the most important thing in his life." There it is.

This guy is incredible. How he can just speak so fluidly with no uh's and uhm's. Wow. Interesting watch, thanks Google!

He's got style

How did you pass the Bar Exam? Ofcourse you are a Genius!!!!!

An American bar exam, not a real one.

He got style

43:17 good advice

this guy comes in with a great message about personal responsibility and redemption, and the very first question immediately starts with the feminist horseshit. Impostor syndrome, fuck off. Not the same thing at all. There was no syndrome about it, this guy was a straight up impostor. The entire concept of Impostor syndrome, accepting that it even exists, is more of this victim mentality horseshit. Everyone has feelings doubt and insecurity from time to time, but if you label those feelings a "syndrome", then people internalize that syndrome as a part of their identity. If you're a woman in the highly competitive field of tech, and you can't muster the confidence to not think of yourself as an impostor, then you have no business being in that field.

I guess we will have to let them be the judge who's confidence is misplaced

no, all you've done is shown everyone what an insane amount of misplaced confidence in your own intelligence you have. Time to stop huffing your own farts.

You try hard to be ignorant. You willingly convince yourself that you aren't... All I've done is hand you the rope to hang yourself with.

I'm sorry, I can't keep you idiots straight. You're all the same kind of dipshit to me. Look, you either agree that google's corporate culture is infested with radical left-wing ideology, or you're wrong. Google makes no secret of their political stance and the environment they foster there. I never made an ad hominem fallacy, name calling isn't ad hominem, it's just insults you moron. There was no logical progression from the insult. The woman laptop thing isn't false cause either you idiot. The straw-man thing too. Making presumptions isn't straw-manning. straw-manning is when you unfairly represent the oppositions argument and then attack that unfair representation, instead of their actual argument. You haven't given me an actual argument to attack or successfully rebutted my original point, you've just been flinging insults. So all you've proven is that A. you don't know what you're talking about and B. You're a pretentious faggot that likes to bluff with logical fallacies that you don't understand the meaning of. I love how every dipshit with a laptop thinks their a logician now too. hilarious... Nobody talked this way in the 90s.

Ad hominem, on multiple occasions. False cause with the woman reading from a laptop. Strawman by presuming my beliefs on google's culture. Let me know if you want to actually try to argue a point, or just want to continue to assume what people feel or think, and then call them names based on those presumptions.

Name them, lol. I love how defensive you faggots are getting about this btw. This is hilarious. If you don't have an actual argument, just accuse them of being in a basement (Which is an actual logical fallacy, ad hominem) or accuse them of making fallacious statements with zero supporting statements. Fucking children.

I count at least 3 logical fallacies in that response...

Yeah, the question she read off the laptop, written either by her or another googler. Are you doubting that google's corporate culture is infested with radical progressive ideas? Because you're making yourself look like a retard if you think otherwise.

Nice projection. How is your mom's basement?

shitposting on 4chan in your moms basement isn't working in tech btw

You mean the question she read off of the laptop? Shes a dumb woman because she read a question someone else asked? You have no idea who asked the question, yet you saw a woman talking and immediately felt threatened. Was the next question she read off the laptop also "feminist horseshit?"

I know, and I do. But at least I'm right.

You're just a prick. Own it.

who hurt you? are you mad that a woman gets to ask questions?

you have no idea what you're talking about :)

Neither that question nor the answer brings up feminism or anything related. Imposter syndrome is not unique to a feminist worldview; it's pretty much universal. As is, apparently, a persecution complex.

If they release this video in theatres, I would watch as many as times as I watched "Catch me If you can" movie. Just Inspiring.

Why would Google glorify a criminal? Even a well-spoken one?

Hey, you might be right. I stopped after 11 minutes but will listen to the rest thanks to your replys. Good evening!

He is not being glorified here. In fact, he is extremely critical of himself and explains that he has spent the remainder of his life working in repentence, even 30 years after the 12 years that was required had already been served.

I don't think that spending five years in prison was enough.

Maybe because sometimes when you are a criminal who hasn't killed anyone and pay your dues (which he obviously has), you get to re-enter society and get to live as a human being.

Because his life is still meaningful despite being a criminal.

What a speaker. What a story. Damn.

Pretty hypocritical to come from google, with the news of them tracking you without knowing...

Work in analysis/dataviz, not google though. In all fairness, data is used to make the said product/service more profitable in the sense that customers will better like it and use more of it. Yes it is for profit but are you really outraged that a business collects information so you'll like the product more? The only reason they want your information is so they can make you like them more. They will do this because it works. People like targeted ads and they enjoy that some algorithm personalizes their experience, there's not much nefarious activity going on when users want the things that you are actively looking into. Data breaches are a different conversation but in regular analytics, they only look so they can see what you like.

I knew it all along, but this kind of stuff is unacceptable. You have their stocks or something?

Don't pretend like you didn't know. Every piece of technology you own has built in analytics

@DaveRamsey

After the 2008 Stanford hack, the Kroll 1 year of credit monitoring was utterly useless. And now with Equifax, basically every adult is the US open to identity theft.

Great talk, but he's wrong that we'll be getting rid of passwords anytime soon!

Incredible, thank you for sharing!!!

No evidence for gods so indoctrination does not make a wise man.

Don't betray your kid's trust as a parent.

gold

Fascinating as fuck!

Do you concur?

As far as youtube comments go... this is beautiful.

Why didn't I concur?

Concur with what, Sir?

Yes, I concur

Thank you Google for bringing him up on your esteemed platform and also thank you Mr. Abagnale for sharing your story. I'm grateful.

i'm not crying

Wow that was one of the coolest things I've ever seen on Youtube. A+, would watch an hour of ads to see this guy speak for another hour, so get on it Google. What kind of balls does it take to fly all over the world in the god damn cockpit of a plane. This guy is fascinating, and I would like to hear him go further into the technological side of his work. Jesus that was awesome.

Yeah that movie was an instant favorite of mine, it is really well done. It was interesting to hear about Hollywood inserting a strong father figure into the movie and how that contrasts with the reality of the situation. I feel like Hollywood does a disservice to those who maybe have bad parental relationships through this alteration. It is even more amazing that this guy did all of these things without any support to fall back on.

Have you seen the film? Abagnale has a fascinating story, it stars Leo Dicaprio and Tom Hanks, and it's a great movie to boot

Awesome story

Very interesting to hear this story from the man himself

A wealth of knowledge!! Thank you Google and Mr. Abagnale

Two mice fell into a bucket of cream.

Where you going tonight Frank? Someplace Exotic?

My question is, what happened to the other mouse when the cream was churned to butter? Is there just a dead mouse mixed in to the butter? Gross.

Yes!

rub one out cream?

That was great. Thank you.

Frank is very articulate with his speaking, but it honestly gives me a headache because he talks so fast like this as if he has never used a period or comma in his life and doesn't know where the sentence begins or ends and just keeps talking and talking without any pauses.

The stones on this guy are ridiculous.

DaViE DiSKoMcDee I don't get your anger, are you related to the speaker?

Yes he says the same thing nearly exactly in every speech. People like these are extremely intelligent and probably hate having to think about how to say it different. Doesn't change how cool the things he did

Obviously massively rehearsed but incredible to watch nonetheless. Frank's literally famous for being a smooth-talking con-man. After watching him speak live I can believe that he really did charm and deceive all those people.

No bitcoin question?

Thanks Google and Mr. Abagnale for this amazing talk. I thought I'm only gonna watch 10 min of this video, but ended up spending an entire hour to finish it! If my profs were like this during lectures, I would've aced all my exams lol

Oh! I agree how he must've told this story quite a few times, so the familiarity must've brought most of the fluidity in speech. But the amazing thing is that even when he's answering questions asked by different people in the audience! I wish I had a fraction of his brain's reaction speed. LOL.

bit of a monologue kind of talk...almost like reading off a tele-prompter..not many expressions..most of us use uh's and uhm's as we need time to think on what to say or forget something and need time to recollect...Orators like Frank have the ability to rule the world and motivate people. Can be Good or Bad.

Whats the Credit Monitoring Systems he referred to?

So you are actually making his point for him - Malachi Love-Robinson was arrested and charged. Perhaps you think the AMA will be contacting him soon...!?

So your point is that black people can also commit fraud? That's not really a counter-point to my initial claim, but good try.

False. Google Malachi Love-Robinson A teen who masqueraded as a doctor in Florida.

No I don't, remember I work in Stem, back-end web development. And for the past ten years Women have been receiving far, far more encouragement than men in tech, even though women still only comprise about 10-20% of the classrooms and even less in the work force. Except for when it comes to things like biological sciences, which for some reason far more women are drawn to than men. The flip side to tech is that once you cross over into web design, mostly women. I think liberals have the wrong premise. It's not institutionalized sexism that keeps women out of certain fields, it's the women themselves. Women overwhelmingly choose career paths that give them a sense that they're helping humanity, and higher job satisfaction, vs just making money. My own sister, who has a master's in psychology, did this. Instead of going into private practice, which is far more lucrative, she chose to work with state agencies to help homeless people. But I don't just have anecdotal evidence, if you believed the stats, they'd paint the same picture. Feminists are running around screaming about, and trying to put out fires that were extinguished in the 70s and 80s.

Do you believe men and women receive an equal amount of resources and encouragement to pursue careers in science and technology?

What a guy..respect!

Movies are bollocks aren't they...........

Thank you, Frank Abagnale. Brilliant

I concur, Doctor

Wow this guy is impressive

This is brilliant. He’s lying to make the point about lying. Moreover, he proves to the audience that you interpret his lying differently at different points in his story (i.e. he repeats himself, audience laughs the first time but is skeptical the second time… very interesting). Wait, does Abagnale (here) lie any more than Spielberg lies when he depicts Catch Me If You Can as “based on a true story”? Man he’s good. Is based on a true story, *the true story*? Does it matter? Wowza

He is also tall, attractive and has an incredibly high IQ.

50 years ago.

Ok

Brandon I.T. 1337 Problem is unlikely that God exist and if you look from space countries dont exist too.

lol, says you. Try telling that to a homeless white guy. No body gives a shit about him. And how are we "clearly seeing" that tech is hostile to women? I work in tech and I don't see that. I hear people on the far left bitching about it, but I never see it. Also, have you noticed that the people getting accused of sexual impropriety int he workplace happen to be the same douche bags that espouse all these social justice ideas? Male feminists are creeps. And before you say "Ah ha! you say you never see it, but you're admiting some of these guys prey on women!". Yeah, there's a few high profile cases, out of the millions of people who work in the industry. It's less than 1% of the industry. I read about a psychological phenomenon in a psychology text book once where people go on public crusades against their own demons to take suspicion off themselves and alleviate themselves of guilt. The example in the book was of a preacher who was always railing about pedophilia, when he was secretly in fact a pedophile.

We're clearly seeing now that male dominated fields like tech, media, and politics are hostile to women. You are right that life is hard, just much much harder for those who aren't fortunate enough to be a white male.

I don't think media has as powerful as an influence as you think. Besides, this is a chicken and egg question. Does life imitate art, or the other way around? And claiming that women are so weak willed that they won't pursue their passions and interests because a field is male dominated, or because some sexist prick somewhere along the line told them they can't, I think is condescending and insulting to women. Life is hard, no matter which path you take, for different reasons. I dont see the problem here. I know competent female programmers, who they tend to be drawn to the front-end of web dev for whatever reason, but they are not dissuaded by being around nerdy gross socially awkward dudes because they enjoy their craft and have an appreciation for the logic and problem solving aspects of the field. But besides all that, What is your solution? I think whatever the far left progressive radicals propose, monkeying with social systems and artificially inflating numbers of certain groups in certain fields, has far more potential for damage than it does to solve a problem which may or may not even exist. I get that all these SJW social movements are ostensibly more empathetic than the conservative thinking on the issue. But i really think these people's "solutions" to these "problems" are myopic.

But how much of that choice to seek out less lucrative positions is reinforced in popular media and the fact that certain fields are so male dominated? I think it’s hard to ignore that 80% of characters in movies and TV with STEM jobs are male, which exactly mirrors the gender make-up you’ve observed of these fields in university.

Thank you for posting this, the q&a when he talks about credit and security was great!

The one thing I am taking away from his talk is the attitude towards life despite his past and present. Clearly a life lived and learned from.

Thanks on the tip on how to forge a check, brb, imma make some phone calls..

The F.B.I. is an organization that routinely does [1] civil asset forfeiture (stealing), [2] bribes BestBuy employees, [3] perjury, [4] illegal surveillance (warrantless wiretaps, cellphone stingrays), [5] Extraordinary rendition (kidnapping), [6] Use of "informants" to convince others to commit crimes (entrapment), or as Mr. Abagnale puts it: "The most ethical people".

I remember seeing the movie for the first time under 10 and thinking "wow, that's cool". Later I caught all the details the second time seeing the movie and thinking "what an amazing man". A couple years later, I see this talk and I am just in awe. This man's entire life has been such incredible, stupendous, serendipitous happenstance. His experiences. His character. Everything fell into place so many times over. Even his setbacks gave some shape to who he is. The universe rolled the dice and got yahtzee.

I concur...

So he was a charlatan since his 16 at least.

All this and now Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump is his boss.

People like you will be the demise of freedom.

I'd say it's white privilege. White women are an even more privileged and protected class.

dutchdaedalus this man, in effect, lost his parents abruptly when he was still a kid. It was so devastating to him to see his parents divorce that he ran away. So he has a sore area there. He seems to have spent the rest of his life healing that wound through his marriage. The problem I have with people like you, is that you are so touchy, you don't see the forest from the trees. Just as his wound has blinded him to his proclivity, you have your own proclivity you are blind to. Seek to understand for others, not to be understood, then you will be understood.

This skill comes from memorizing and reciting prayers in Catholic school. I think that schooling also gave him other attributes - a mature, wholesome appearance, an ability to come across professionally, etc

best man since jesus

this is the most incredible version, just briliant!

Ya sons been fawgin checks

to hear abagnale praise the members of the fbi and to know that he is telling the truth about their integrity....it makes me so angry that trump...that orange buffoon..is disparaging of the fbi...accusing them of being on a witch hunt etc.... trump is so unfit for office...it's maddening.

government issued passwords for online identity. is that a good idea?

It's interesting how are culture embraces criminals, as long as they are good at what they do or have charisma. Kinda like celebs who get in trouble. If we like them and they're talented enough, they get a pass. This man served his time, so i'm not condemning him. It's just an observation.

That was a great story.

At the end, he dodges the question about whether he pretended to be a pilot to fly away again (in real life) after starting at the FBI like he did in the movie.

LOL...I just snorted cornflakes up my nose backward..........life is strange

There are credit cards with special benefits for travelers. I am assuming his cards offer international charges with no fee.

Seán O'Nilbud

Lmao

getting caught is a lot easier today too though, even if its easier to make the ids

This was just amazing! I never saw the movie, heard of it but never saw it. Now I wish I had. Going to rent it. Thank you Frank Abagnale! Your story is amazing and the way you present it is even more amazing.

Wow... Now that's how you tell a story. Frank Abignale's tale strikes eloquently as an example of God's grace. A journey this crazy wouldn't be believable if he didn't live it, and wouldn't be like able if he didn't tell it. In the end, Frank will have one more chapter to tell. The beautiful chapter. The one where he runs but does not grow weary and is never caught by Death Hell and the Grave.

Everything was great, except he shows he has no clue about personal finance.

Great conman but he can't fool anyone with that comb over.

What happened to the guy from Brooklyn with the bicycle? Or the other guy born in 1948.

His summary of the future, (pacemakers and cars) sounds like the future of war.

Andrew Anderson He helped prevent more crimes then he did himself so..

Depends on your credit card. With a high enough rating, and spending habits, you get some pretty good benefits.

Tell me you are joking.

no idea that that's progressive

parodyvideos Wow your so progressive duuude.

I bet you he has an eidetic memory (more commonly called "photographic memory"). Imagine the learning curve he handled, all without reading manuals, for the most part. On the flip side, he never had any problem inferring very accurately from context and improvising. He claims not to be a genius, but you simply don't make the use of all the opportunities he did without a pretty unusual set of talents. Not skills, since he did all of it untrained. The skill was knowledge picked up a split second beforehand. He also likely trained himself at a very early age not to ever say "uh" or "um." He was such a chameleon. It's likely that he unconsciously or intuitively imitated the mannerisms of whomever he admired, confident, successful people. Consider being someone of such innate talents. He didn't gain the skills or knack through formal training, so he still thinks of it as no big deal. But to do anything like he did, you'd have to have such a fine-tuned mind and excellent recall. Thank god he works for the FBI and the United States. Also thank god that his intentions have been positive for the last 40+ years. Banks and all the other institutions with incompetent security need to listen to this guy. The entire data sector should just pick all it can from his brain for as long as possible. He'd probably write the book on all security for the next 40 years. If only the right ideas were implemented competently and ethically, the whole would could probably avoid a LOT of nastiness coming our way over the next few decades. Then again, if half of the workforce does get eliminated (through automation) by 2050, then ordinary people will have to become hackers just to put food on the table. (Otherwise most of us will have to become farmers and ranchers, if THAT'S even viable 20 or 30+ years from now. Maybe some of both?) It'll be interesting to see how everything shakes out. How close to cyberpunk fiction will the world get? I hope I live long enough to witness even a little of it, either to be relieved that it's not so bad or to whisper, "I told ya so, but you wouldn't listen."

Just means he's not retarded. He probably told his story thousands of times during 30 years.

Stock Tip: Trusona. Not yet public :/

Idiot kids walking in front of him. What's amazing is that the nitwits don't even know that they are rude!! Today's generation is social misfits so can only communicate via Facebook and tweets! Little social skills...

Lots of nitwits working at Google? Sounds right old man

Wow, he’s crisp and clear.

Truly fascinating and uplifting.

"A small town in the south of France called Montpellier" and later "A small town..called Perpignan" Those cities have respectively 250.000 and 125.000 inhabitants. So a little over the population of Salt Lake City. "Town". Lol.

Mind. Blown.

Excellent, inspiring ... thank you for sharing.

Robert Hirsch oh please shut the fuck up and keep your simpleton political opinions to yourself. Think for yourself and don't copy and paste from the higher ups

It's a terrible fucking idea. That would mean they could simply decide to disable your access to all your accounts for any reason. You'll enjoy this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsGO1bI9q_U

Owen is spot on. His detractors are those who do not know what they take for granted and thus invisible to their eyes let alone their minds.

In the context of this speech, I don't think Frank was intentionally making a negative statement about non-heterosexual parents or single parents.

catch me outside if you can how bou da :D

Answer to the first question.. well as they say "fake it till you make it" :)

Sincerity in an age of insincerity. A welcome change of pace. Thanks for posting.

Nice

35:29 "i'm not a big movie person and i watch very little television. not as a kid and not now. i certainly don't go to movies." no wonder. dude's got a razor sharp intellect.

And what does a real woman do? Because most men are absent from their children's lives because of the whim of an ex-wife and a biased "family" court.

catch me if you can...one of the best movies ever made !!

The plug for Trusona was a pretty obvious shill considering he's an advisor for the company, and used in their ads.

And, of course, he was 100% upfront about it. You can check out Trusona and make your own decisions. No, I don't work for Trusona.

To the Moon

I wonder how much of the story is true. How much does he get paid to speak?

What does it matter whether he gets paid, or not, or how much?

White privilege. Many white young millennials don't know how valuable white skin is. It is the international lingua franca, open sesame and it opens.

Great guy. Unlike the robot people asking questions.

@59:50 - Thats why i only drive used, mostly non-electronical cars. without build in gps etc. or with electronics that I know. Thats why i never will use Trusona. Thats why i know what to do with my real accounts. Abagnales history is interesting. But now what he is doing ... is not something I like.

Battlestar Galactica strategy: it's what saved them from the Cylons.

Is the idea of prison to punish a person or rehabilitate them?

Marduk being a dumb person isn't a felony?!

A dui is a dumb persons mistake ... not really a felony in my opinion ... this guy showed huge potential

Wonderboywonderings I like to think so. Nothing too technical though. The thought is entertaining.

Sammy Shmilfke...or is it?

kill for that job? Probably not the best way to get a job at the FBI

His name was Michael Hastings!

Chris Clements there is no god you fool

Toby Kral ...you can be once you learn something inside out and ask your God to bless you with articulation..

Toby Kral "I wish I *could* be as articulate as him."

Exactly. A black man commits a crime and he goes to jail for life. A Muslim commits a crime and they sentence they're dead. We need to smash the white patriarchy!

zztop3000 I'm a purple man jealous of the green man!

What about the power of green male privilege. Those green men get all the jobs!

Owen F lol more people who hate white people. He could have been black in Nigeria and had same thing happen and you wouldn't have same "black privilege". Stupid moron Cunt.

You are absolutely right. There is no scientific evidence that child needs a male father and female father. Parenting has nothing to do with sex. A child needs love. That's it. Keep gender out of it. We stand with our LGBTQ+ brethren

All americans talk without saying that horseshit. They have a class called public speaking in school and start at early age. It's important in communication to talk without unnecessary interruptions, or so called noise in the signal.

Banks and all the other institutions with incompetent security need to listen to this guy. The entire data sector should just pick all it can from his brain for as long as possible. He'd probably write the book on all security for the next 40 years. If only the right ideas were implemented competently and ethically, the whole world could probably avoid a LOT of nastiness coming our way over the next few decades. Then again, if half of the workforce does get eliminated (through automation) by 2050, then ordinary people will have to become hackers just to put food on the table. (Otherwise most of us will have to become farmers and ranchers, if THAT'S even viable 20 or 30+ years from now. Maybe some of both?) It'll be interesting to see how everything shakes out. How close to cyberpunk fiction will the world get? I hope I live long enough to witness even a little of it, either to be relieved that it's not so bad or to whisper, "I told ya so, but you wouldn't listen."

That was excellent, thanks for sharing it with us Google!

He's from Connecticut....

The former director of the F.B.I. also has direct and indirect databases and evidences crime roles and sequence shits in courts tied to areas's and to online crimes tied.

THat nature of "confidence" was/is recorded manifest worse than interstate, and with these fact treatments exploited by what was/is Trade Center/inter-nation, and inter-inter-nation criminal enterprises juxtaposed through areas's maintained criinally foreign infleunced, and with/as online crime methods recorded, too, with/as Sandy HOok investigations and investigators. We have all we need recorded. It shows other formally pretended, and recorded criminally pretending it's tied to our nations's forced undercover relationships here, and there, and everywhere, and with the forced criminally markets's positions and databases relationships and abridged Constitution roles pretended patriotism used for fact treatment nature breaching tools. Areas's and states's formal opinions are in collusion with other nations's knaves to all microphones, and to/as all courts recorded criminally foreign influenced through online, inter-campus, and areas's racekts not let reported. We'll examine how not one man spoke for Hartford Connecticut, but speaks anyway for what a father is with convictions. Mine was best. Control your minds. Opinions only crest.

That confidence was/is criminal foreign influenced.

Were there ties to witness fabrications with the attorney general tied to the singles's complex? Was it tied to on/off campuses rackets/databases ones? All modern nations lost to a databases/evidences crime method that was/is maintaining modern nations as breaching tools through areas, and through states's areas's maintained criminal foreign persuasions, and suit and tie collusion with other nations's, and with other nations's suit and tie counters all forced as criminal insidiousness natures per how markets's positions were forced on our nations. The Quran was/is about this. We've pseudo-science, pseudo-peace. Campus Marcius rises in the east. The F.B.I. was/is with crime roles against each age of fact treatment nature, and with the Trade Center with nations, even ours, not capable of countering it, and for how already having been tied to databases/investigators's relied on evidences crime roles/databasese illusion stacking and tied actors's verbal fact treatment nature collusion roles. "Criminal justice" is sick with nations's police and overt criminal enterprises here, and through mental healthcare tied to courts's recorded breached databases/evidences/name switching and sequence shifting collusion facilitated motivated against strangers, and facilitated pretended for other reasons. This maintains nations needing differences to hide their exploitations of them tied to areas's/states's lie progressions coverups and roles with/as evil. See the people stacking recorded criminally foreign influenced with zoning laws not let demonstrated?

CT was/is cherry tree in trap. Yet none could rap.

A wonderful story but in this day and age, looking forward to being a good husband and father does not make you a “man.” Women and society no longer respect men or fathers. Any man foolish enough to marry or reproduce will be doomed to a life of slavery and mediocrity. What makes a man a “man” is his ability to find a purpose for his own existence and to do that which makes his life a life worth living. If becoming a cuck or a disposable male utility to a woman makes you a man, a good man you will cease to be.

Dj Gastro You left your family huh?

I think the most important thing he says stays at half past the 25 minute. Thank you for sharing your story.

What a guy!

fascinating!

He's spot on about divorce. This is an honorable man.

At what point did he reform if he knows about cyber crime?

Truly one of the best speeches I have seen.

Loved the movie as well. Can watch it over and over. Spielberg and DiCaprio caught the spirit of this guy. His family breakup really destroyed him, or, almost. His rehabilitation is well deserved. Well done FBI, for giving him the chance, a most underrated organisation. What came across to me about the movie is that it was a love story. Frank's talk confirms that. Well done Frank. You should be president.

Livestronger And that's why you show people how to lift heavy things as a career.

morpheus305 Like I said. He's served his debt to society. I'm not condemning him. I just find it interesting how we glorify men like him, Al Capone, wolf of wall street. But we hate the petty thief.

chefawkes One of few intelligent comments.

Yu Chen Cheng Wow an entire hour of your life!! Now go back to study for nothing.

You have skills worthy of the FBI?

Andy T because it's all nonsense

Normal Guy How you know?

Transchrono oh shut up will you

13000 agents and 25000 supports and 1 in 10:000 applicants, = 38000 picked at the rate of 1 in every 10,000. That means there would have to be 380 million applicants, doesnt it? Whats the population of the USA?

This guy broke society

Sure was distracting to have that girl up front bobble up and down three times in the first five minutes, and SO RUDE to have those idiots with their backpacks to exit through the front of the room! You telling me there is NO OTHER EXIT available in that room? That's against fire laws. They're just assholes.

Dj Gastro It's cool bro, you can wait til you're 40. Don't go childless though. It's not the way of the man.

Andy T I’ll try my best to not have one. At least, not here in America.

mevsthor, I mean when you think about it no African, or Asian or middle easterner can pull this off, even now. Forget the fact that it happened ages ago.

Jarrod D'Jean just like that huh?

How do convicted criminals get to join 3 letter agencies?

This was by far 100 times better than the book and the movie combined. Water straight from the source. Brilliant. Intelligence is one thing but confidence is another and Abignail absolutely drips confidence. He's also obviously way above average intelligence but he's a man that has great self reflection and understanding of himself.

This Is really amazing!

Personally I think it was a mistake for the FBI to take him in. You can't develop trust with someone known for falsely gaining trust. Pretty incompetent of the FBI, but that is bureaucracy for you.

Maybe it came down to a gamble. Somebody needed more arrests and if he didn't get them he would be fired. So what do you have to lose? Go ahead and compromise the whole outfit because the worst case scenario for you personally is just being fired no matter what you do. You see this a lot in the corporate world. Leaders will often compromise the future of a department, store, region, etc just so that they can personally look good and not get fired for at least one more quarter or year.

Tunnel Vision!

I have good credit. Pointless. No job.

This non-pause style almost sounds like Eugene from the walking dead...

He doesn't seem brainwashed at all..

Enjoyable up to the point where it became a bit religions.

43:15 Interesting that Abegnale says credit cards are the safest method of payment, and to never use a debit card. Here in Indonesia we consider credit cards to be the most dangerous because it exposes you to mounting debt with compounding interest, whereas with a debit card you only spend the money you actually have and no more. Having debt is more dangerous than _not_ having money. (To us, here.)

what an elequent speaker he is! I didn't expect that.

Now I know why the FBI wanted him on site and offered him a job,,,,,,,, can you imagine this man loose? verry verry smart,,,,,, i would have asked him about the eclaire in exchange for " how did he pass the bar exam seen

Debit cards work just fine... if you have a chip with a pin. No need to build a 'credit score' if your country isn't built on debt...

He was a legend then. thats cool. but what's even cooler is that he's a legend still by keeping up to today's technology and can still play his game. *Old but not obsolete*

Ironically, I trust Abignale because he was a criminal before he became

This video is WAY COOLER THAN THE MOVIE but still love the movie Leo D,Christopher W and Tom H and the young Amy Adams.

very informative and intriguing lecture. Also was delivered in a very clear and precise manner.

Montpellier is the fastest growing city in France over the last 25 years and this happened over 40 years ago. So it might have been a small town back then.

Yeah, I'm wondering if the House of Cards team used him as inspiration lol

so fascinating, the man is smart, capable, ingenuitive, resourceful, determined...and dares to take risk....I would hire someone with such qualities.....

Females in tech are so not needed and unnecessary.

Trusona stuff freaks me out. A password ssytem can be an alias, with Trusona everything will be your personal accounts. If someone doesnt like you, they can ban you and lock you out of the system. And they control that.

So many upset SJW's guess they never met John Lee aka John Threat. Holds the record for fastest to scam a phone company operator out of passwords.

The only part I do not concur is be a real man part. Money, achievement, skill, accomplishment, position ARE everything to a men, without them a man is not a man, he is a loser. You gave us those beautiful unrealistic words because you ALREADY got those things. Today's women are bitchier than ever, family court is hostile towards men, I see absolutely no reason to marry a women at all, fxxk and dump is the way to go and it is women's fault.

after watching this, i'm left speechless, just speechless.

Life works in a mysterious way, some peoples do small things and spend the rest of their life in the prison. Other do big and crazy things and are still celebrated and viewed as Hero!!

Loved the book and the Man is so much more. Frank you are a true gentleman!

i have a thing about overly rehearsed talks. dude comes off as a total douche.

Hackers do not cause breaches, people do.

The "scammer" look. Abignaile looks like Maidoff!

He is a genius and a idol for many people nowadays, Beside he will be more than that after his death also. Thanks Google to present such a man at YouTube.

Very interesting presentation and I will be ditching my debit card very quickly. Credit card only from now on!

This man is a (self-avowed) seamless liar. He is able to make people believe he is a doctor, a lawyer, an airline pilot and now he is telling us that he is a spy, an undercover agent, a true patriot, a moral man, a good father, an upright citizen, a reformed fellow, a teacher of FBI agents. Catch on! his deception is hiding in plain sight, and the endorsement of the worlds greatest dream caster (Spielberg) works just like the Pilot uniform; we lose our skepticism. :-)

what a legend.

"Where ya goin tonight Frank? Some place exotic? Tahiti? Hawaii?" (-_-) *sax music in the background*

Even better than Leonardo Di Caprio's movie!

Jarrod D'Jean to be fair 99% of white people couldn't pull off what this guy did, but I get what you're saying.

Yep. And the reason so many people want a job there is because they pay so much, as in way over the market price. Any organization can use someone else's money (taxpayer money) and over-pay in the market to make your jobs the jobs that everyone wants. Start paying normal rates and the FBI will be taking 1 out of 100 applicants in no time at all. And at that point the only type of people who will want the job are people want to exercise power over others. Corrupt and politiczed to the core, the FBI is NOT a prestigious organization to work for.

Some parents are idiots. Hiding things from kids simply means you are ensuring that they will be unprepared for it when they actually have to deal with it.

He doesn't look anything like Leonardo DiCaprio.

I loved this video. Thank you for posting! I wish he would speak at more venues. So inspiring!!!

so he basicly said equifax was negligant, and is knowingly offering a bogus fix , a bogus fix they will make millions of dollars on, and 150 million people should now spend 12 dollars every month trying to protect themselves for that negligence of a company they trusted .... if that doesnt make ur blood boil and make u not call ur congresmen, i dont think u can be a called a father or a good citizen hehe. On top of all that citizens cant unite anymore to sue them thanks to congress, they sitting pretty and will make millions while 100+ million people who cant afford protection will have to gamble and pray their data doesnt get abused. Its the perfect crime, with 150 million victims and a few happy new millionaires , and that folks is how the 1% gets filthy rich and your family suffers. Cause u let them get away with it.

i think girl in the first row asking questions is cute !

Glad he said that about needing both parents. All the faggots and selfish bitches like at my university ruined my generation. Google take note of Damore!

Fantastic talk, but it peeved me that he praises the Trusona software so immensely , seemingly without considering how "someone would use that technology in a negative, self serving way".

i wonder if he is logged in to an google accound on his device..

His Story really resonates with me. A lot of parallels to my own life. Interesting he’s against divorce too.

What he did as a kid was illegal and immoral but what he's done since is extrodinary. I respect the man he's become .

what credit monitoring service does he use?

The funny part is, that's NOT really HIM!!!! Someone actually Abagnaled him. What a crazy turn of events. Poetic, very poetic.

He's moved onto BitCoin ! invest right now suckers ! He's a smart man.

Don’t get it He starts off by saying how awful his father was and ends up saying how loving he was Can you believe anything this man says?

Listen to the beginning again.  He said he didn't talk to his mother again for seven years after he left, and never saw his father again or talked to him.  Later he explained this was because his father died before he came back to see them.  He never said anything negative about his father at any point.

incredible ........... i think his view of the FBI, is a bit Jaded.....

Incredibly moving story. Hopefully Frank's personal journey, including his struggles, inspires others. It's never too late to make changes to your life. Remarkable story.

Really did churn things into butter. Glad you changed your start in life because of knowing right from wrong. Of course when you make bad decisions, it never really gets changed to good by way of better choices. However, if you believe in God almighty and have faith that he understands everything about our circumstances at every level of our being, and have true sorrow in our heart, I believe he will be merciful with such an individual. Peace be with you by way of the truth that only Gods word is able to supply. Glad you told your story.

This guy did stammer a single time...

Sorry I didn't ask you. Did I hurt your wittle snowflake feelings?

MagicChef men are uselss

If everything required a Trusona ID, there are many people who would consider that the mark of the beast and would viciously oppose it.

Marc Bell cause they want the good ones

RESPONSIBLE use of credit cards is what he is recommending. He recommends credit cards over debit cards because of the protections against fraud, of which he is a globally known expert. I am sure that if he felt the need, he would use cash... But even cash can be counterfeited and he loses out. Frank is a master of using other peoples money and letting someone else take the risks. When using credit cards, as stated, the cc company assumes all the risks when it is used because the banks are chasing the interest for carrying a balance that someone with great credit will seldom allow them to get. All that aside... If one cannot control their spending, then they deserve no credit.

'Being black is the new white priviledge', man what kind of alternate universe. You must not be exposed to Asia, Africa and latin America.

Jarrod D'Jean dumbest shit I've ever heard I would say that being black is the new white privilege b

Everything is a town compared to new York

completely different departments inside the FBI, trump isn't saying every single FBI operative is a 'witch'

shiet mang show me evidence that this is parroting before you run your mouth

WOW WOW WOW!!!!

Damn, and I thought Hollywood biopics were utterly reliable!

What a fabulous story! Especially about fatherhood!

zzzz do good must zzz..man his vocie put me to sleep:/ but the story is great

Man I love this story.

He speaks like he's reading a book

One of the most poignant speeches on YouTube. Something every child should hear before starting out life on their own.

So lucky to be able to get employed by the FBI as a felon. Definitely an exception to the rule that explicitly states that felons cannot be hired.

What an eloquent speaker. I wish Joe Rogan had him on his podcast.

Frank Abagnale is one of the most decent people I have ever met. He is truly inspirational.

*_Man this talk was somehow better than the movie..._*_ And that movie was by spielberg,Hanks and leo is one of my favorite films_

I am glad they made that movie . You payed your debt !

Wow!! what timing! I am so glad I watched this, so much Wisdom in here for us Men.

I agree. What a fraud.

gyrojomo your math might be a little superficial, the question should be how many agents are hired a year versus total applications. They have 38000 people at the FBI but some have been there for 30 sth years so yes it took millions of applications over a large time range

WAKE UP CALL-why isn't there a published detailed audit of all politician's profits made in a comparison of the assets declared at the beginning of a poltician's career and the ousted politician's career, including PM's+Presidents, as their assets all increase by billions or millions, and yet all this is made by 'insider trading'-is this LEGAL, or simply that being a politician giver you the right to STEAL? HISTORY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEvm70bhb8Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYTDUxlJ4zU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sus0-3upvuA prof post only provided the obvious picture of saddam, BUT he forgot purposely, to include how UK's tony blair via david Kelly, INITIATED the unnecessary war vs Iraq and the unfortunate deaths of UK Soldiers via the unproven weapons of mass destruction in Iraq! and ofcourse, poor david Kelly was murdered to hide this and the billions made by not only blair and his cronies, who continue to profit from their self imposed global importance as speakers, and Trojan horse legal representation of Iraq/Libya/Syria leaders and their families, assets, hence to rule the world, all you need is 1 of a partnership to be in a PM/President's role, and the other in the partnership to be a 'Lawfirm partner''-hence the politician can create the war, and the lawfirm to 'legally' steal all of the assets of the war torn leaders and their families, and continue to 'milk dry' the war torn countries oil and gold assets! it's still ongoing TODAY!

28:08: Tragic; Google gets one of THE best speakers in the world, who narrates a compelling story better than most people could ever write it, and then the have some ditsy Millenial moderator, who can barely read a question off her screen. Upspeak galore, she's like, i mean, OMG, so yeah, like, yeah, umm... lol, like OMG!

Did they caught him yet?

He is proud of what he did

The poor man is still reeling from all his past traumas. Can’t you people see that? All you see is what he wants you to see. There is so much more.

Scary thought,that someone with moderate skill, could with their computer, whip up an airline flight crew ID...an illustrious terrorist could cause some real havoc having such an ID.

I have to be a good father.

what a legend!

With this kind of agent in the FBI we're in good hands.

This is very insightful, and quite informative and really opened my eyes to a lot of things, it was great to see the real Frank Abagnale and hear him speak.

This talk makes me want to chop up my debit card.

Put yourself in a position of authority if you want to fool people, that's what Frank Abagnale did. Think of it this way: How many times have you gone to the hospital and demanded the Doctor show you his Medical Degree? Probably never. You just take his word and believe him when he says he's a Doctor, because he's the one in charge and he has the authority and you have no reason to think he's a fraud. As long as you talk the talk, walk the walk, act confidently, and always keep yourself in the position of utmost authority, you can make people believe your almost anything (doctor, lawyer, architect, etc.)

This guy is not Frank Abagnale. He is an imposter pretending to be Frank.

no wonder cia, and the fbi are a bunch of corrupt fuckers they consist of people like this, execute this filthy whore

However good this speech is, we should not forget that this man made a living by lying and creating characters. Many stories from movie / book were simply proven to be false and I have a hard time believing many others after learning that.

Paul Northey people change Paul.

chasing their tail forever. so his solution is to: for additional fees 'stamp us at birth with a QR, eliminate our autonomy by tethering technology to a police state, make all capital transactions under control of private credit companies with no accountability while further empowering predatory banking'? yeah, that will solve the problem for banks ... fixing us. the problem is endemic, global not national, and that twat is pure evil because he knows full well that the dysfunction in banking is systemic in *parasitic* capitalism, dissenters are not the threat now, nor in the future, state actors are the only real threat and no technology is the finish line.

Wow, very down to earth guy. Very well spoken

I like this man, he is the real deal, wrong things he undoubtedly did, but still he changed and that is the story as spielberg told on film, a worthy film about a lost boy who survived, survived well.

I thought he was the only child.....

We should never trust a fast talking con man. Once a con always a con.

Still conning em, the narcissist.

Role model for men, primarily for the last ten minutes of his speech. Bravo!

Frank's secret is a simple one: CHARISMA.

trusona sounds scary as hell

Wow, his story is Impeccable and his speech is flawless

Knawk Knawk go fuck yourself

Thank you Frank. Your audience is the perfect ones who needed to hear and see what true integrity and parental values looks like. Many watching you this day and every time on the video think they're invincible, invisible and free of consequences.

This Guy may was great in fooling people but I doubt that google really has the need to learn from him

Get them crooks out of the FBI Frank!

He looks like a turtle..blond turtle.

He hasn't lost his confidence.

Frank is cool as can be very smart man.

you got a training that no schools would or could ever give you and you could share with others... It,s the sharing you forgot about................... and you did..

Just like in the film, with extra details...

Fantastic

Interesting guy, but never forget who he is.  A professional liar, cheater, felon with a long criminal history.  People are easily fooled, and Frank has mastered his craft...

Good speaker, shame he doesn't tell the true workings of the banking system.....

Very interesting, they should make a movie about this guy

Spot on Paul... He's good no doubt.

I've seen worst

All the assholes who are so self righteous and snub their noses at "criminals" remember this "criminal" is probably doing better than you.

wow, I normally dont physically hug and kiss my parents, this christmas i WILL

Everything he said was good to listen to and to appreciate until he said at 27:17 "what's a real man, loves his wife..." That's some pussy whipped, female subservient mindset.... Real manhood transcends every freaking female, real manhood is dignity and living life of principles and justice. No man should put his wife as the most important thing, his kids ...for sure, they're his legacy.

So your message is cheat? You are fucked up.

This speech changed my life.

So did he or was it a member of his team that needed to fess up to shooting Danny Archer back in the 70's

I don't understand how the FBI can be that great...Trump says it is in a shambles...and he is really smart...I am so confused...how can this be ?

What a fantastic guy.

He speaks so highly of the FBI and in fact has the opinion I once had...until the last few Comey years

A one of a kind !!! Thanks for posting !!!

He didn't answer the question if he kept flying for free after he got caught and served prison time. They still can't catch him.

After 9/11, there is no question the FBI is good at posing to be ethical when they are not. Director Comey's lies about Clinton really drive home the point that the FBI are no longer the good guys and cannot be trusted. The FBI are tools of the globalists and killers of innocence.

Um. How does someone go from from prison in 3 different countries to the FBI?! Glorification?! Many crimes including check forgery, impersonating a doctor/physician, pilot and attorney at AG's office.

How about you people at Google show the guy some respect and stop moving around when the guys talking.

The FBI is ethical!?? Their bugging and attacks on Martin Luther KING! Illegally supporting anti-Castro Cubans who are terrorists, spying on American citizens, subverting the pro-Peace movements for Vietnam and many other crimes. J Edgar Hoover used to blackmail people who were homosexual when he was one himself.

TRUSONA .... YOUTUBE IT .... 7 second video .. this will be in every windows device and google device by the end of 2018 apple will implement it before the iPhone SE2 in March

great, an expansion of the mandatory smartphone program. next step baby tatoos you know so banks and governments won't be hassled by fraud.

you mean a spoiled entitled brat runaway that survived.

he never took a pardon because he never really admitted guilt. he was only a child ...

you said it.

holy shit did you miss the point. defraud $3+ million, serve 5yrs in prison(granted 6 months in france was horrific) and cash in on the dream job, a family and a net worth of $10 million. call it a conman's millennial roadmap to fortune, if he had been stupid, poor, or ethnic he would be still in prison or dead.

oh the sweet, sweet irony.

sell gold and real estate buy crypto, bwaaaaa ha ha ha.

a fantasy you mean, some guys just win the babylonian lottery.

it's still a con. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwvYkRzpq4g

For sure, he's Frank Abagnale pretending to be Frank Abagnale - just like the rest of us pretend to be ourselves ;-)

he was tortured in france to make the faustian deal with a demon to get out of jail.

the irony of do no evil.

robot

yeah man cause no one ever gets fucked by fate.

it's called the long con, he is one of the best 40+ years and likes to use his wife and kids as props.

Frank's talk is hugely important because we are all very trusting and it's generally okay but we have to think about what we do, who we deal with on a daily basis and the consequences of our daily actions.

I read the original book. I never felt sorry for the guy. I am glad that he has paid back society for this youthful misdeads. What a wealth of knowledge. I 100% agree with his use of credit cards instead of debit. Most cards give you points so by paying off the card each month you gain a credit rating and points. I bought my Christmas gifts with points.

You're A con man. big fuckingdeal.

wow what an amazing story and a humbled man, this should be seen by alot more..

Good story, but I'm suspicious of the FBI these days.  Government in general.

When the state takes over control of the lives of the People, it's not a government anymore. It's a tyranny!

Wisdom. Listening to how he adored his mother and father. Merry Christmas.

Getting rid of passports in exchange for more stringent methods of identification to solve a problem? No. You only solve the borders problem by removing said borders. We only have one Earth. It must belong to everybody!

Ahhhh shut the fuck up

He obviously flew after being caught, why would I think that? Because he took an awfully long time dodging the question and re-directing it with no valid answer.

French prisons must be really horrible. I saw a critical documentary on the french channel TV5 Monde about three years ago.

One of the most brilliant social engineers the world has ever known. Great talk.

I wonder what Frank think about blokchain

Wow I have a huge admiration for this man. Thank you for this video. Merry Christmas to all.

Speechless

Awesome speech and I can see you are a great dad. Thanks for putting this talk together. I watched the movie twice.

This legend traveled around the world for free when he was only 16-18 years old, posed as a flight attendant, went to jail, then worked for the government services, and became a great father. This man right here, has lived the most epic life I've ever heard of.

Interesting talk. They should have more guys like that....Kevin Mitnik, etc.

This was awesome such a remarkable man.

word porn is such a terrible analogy.......its bad and tacky....seriously...your taking a term called "porn" and making it okay?? seriously....your mixing things you should not....your end will come with that

This guy is a sick/slick con man. It would have been massively easier for him to be legit, but he couldn't do that bc he is so pathological. Not to be admired in any way.

Awesome talk.

He didn't answer the question about whether or not he continued to fly after he started working for the FBI. He provided a lot of information when asked that question but he didn't answer the question. ;)

Crime, so Equifax being a part of the official financial system. You cannot finance anything if the credit reporting agencies say you can't. While the banks exploited low interest rates (intentionally) and then flooded the market with bad loans and got payed by the government for screwing up, millions of people lost their down payment and all the principle payments. The investors in the mortgage market lost but blamed it on people. It's a crime. But because they are companies, it's not considered crime.

Maybe it's newer than I thought, oh well.

Passwords still exist and this video isn't exactly new, thoughts?

Beautiful story telling..cant get any better than that composition and delivery

I'd give anything to have someone like this guy giving me life advice when i was a teenager.

The force is strong with this one.

Didn't realize that Leonardo could be this old !

Honored to hire a criminal. That's Google for you.

Frank, you now lament your previous life as a swindler. However, 30 years ago you were going around the country giving speeches at universities and peddling your book--I have an autographed copy. You didn't seem to lament your activities then. Oh, I'm glad you have faith in the FBI because I sure don't.

Oh God, I wish I could work in a place with ethics. Not one that says they're ethical and puts it in their "Codes of Conduct" but a truly ethical company.

the 125 dislikes are the trump voters, blind people that missed the LIKE button and extremely mentally ill people who arent capable of this mans greatness.. cant believe anyone in their right mind would dislike a moment of this video. gonna have to show my family AND friends this

@Old Vibes Right "Real men do not achieve dignity through a "pussy", that's what I said. But then, a gorilla is much more sane than you punk, it's in tune with its natural predisposition. Now, I don't give a flying fck what women want nor do I give a fck how you construe it, I enforce my way in my life...and if it weren't for the pussy whipped like you, they wouldn't be raising our sons the way they do nowadays (family court and custody)...because you like emasculated society, feminist mindset, your mindset is cluttered with feminist horseshit, and you don't even know it. Women don't raise men, men do. I think you were raised by your mother...

Sam Chak your concerns are the concerns of a silverback gorilla . Constant anxiety about leaving a DNA footprint and if another superior male takes his female and destroys his progeny/legacy. Real men do not achieve dignity through a "pussy" and are not anxious about about being "pussy whipped". You only need to mate with a female to achieve your goals. A wife is unnecessary. Women don't need your kind or wanna raise a son to be your kind.

Given how Google conducts business, some significant percentage of those working at Google must be 'impostures', posing as human.

Wow.

He is like a better version of me. Give me 5 years.

douchebags walking out of that speech. assholes

This guy has some big balls!!!! Not only did he wear a pilot uniform when he was young. He actually sat in the f-ing cockpit with other pilots!! Never flew a plane just BS his way around. HOLLY CRAP!!!! And his balls got even bigger by pretending to be a doctor IN A HOSPITAL!!!!!!!

Frank, didn't you call yourself "Andre" when you presented to us New Yorkers about investment trusts in third world nations. You got my friend Sharon Biggs for ten grand, money she needed for retirement. I feel sorry for what you endured, but I am glad you straightened out.

Time was approximately 25 years ago; may have been an impostor?

This guy is a f*cking genius! A high school dropout passes a state bar exam on the first try? Some law school grads who are prominent judges now didn't pass the first time.

...behind every good man is a even better woman, or so I've heard.

Hey, let's glorify criminal activity.

This is a great man.

why does he recommend credit card over debit? What about all those people drowned in debt?

He was a doctor and a lawyer too.

the banks label it "identity theft" not credit manipulation. they didn't walk in and start sleeping with your wife, they get to make it our problem instead of the financial system, pfffft like we have control of the credit system at the fed, target, or wells fargo.

this is awful... hello, big brother... it confuses identity and security... just use a password, don't give away your identity to spare yourself remembering someones birthday and a random word...

... thanks for the insight. I can never understand how things like this happen, amazing that you're able to.

...oh, and Fuck Google!

Trust the FBI...Trust Microsoft? Fuck no!

Wonderful what he says about fathers!

A future winner of a Congressional medal, I predict, for national service.

His speaking skills are top notch and reveal a high intellect. Whoever hired him at FBI deserves a bonus. I have more respect for the FBI now.

He always grins when he talks about the stuff he pulled. :D

I thought I was going to get bored after 5 mins, but this turned out to be outstanding !

He memorized all he’s saying. All talks are almost the same

He's just as glib in the Q&A though!

There are some very intelligent people who aren't sharp : Frank's as sharp as a tack.

Unfortunately the FBI looks bad right now because of corrupt people at the top of the FBI pyramid. Frank is very impressive and shows that you can change your life, and be a good person.

tells a story with so much description and detail with the voice of an audiobook narrator with some charachter

1:01:50 - chilling, all the ways that cybertechnology can be used to invade our privacy. Kind of puts those comments that Kellyanne Conway made earlier this year into a completely different perspective. She was roundly laughed at and dismissed as being a cook. She really wasn't that far off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6oYPXij640

One of the most intriguing talk. But he didn't answer the question on whether he continued flying

21:06

but if you beleive that you are good in what you do, and strive to be good in what you do, you dont need to woo worry what other people think, you have to be able to understand what you have your own confidence that you can do what ever you acquired to do, and other people will see that confidence in you, the moment you start to doubt in yourself - other people will se that you doubt in yourself - and that become weaknes in your personality. You always want to be confident in everything you do, that you can do it, you can done it, it will be done, you ll find a way to do it.

Barry Allen?!

Back around 2000 or so I had a chance to meet Mr. Abagnale when he gave a talk for the Denver Police Department. I worked at another department in Colorado at the time. He was a fascinating speaker, and I still have a copy of his book I got at that talk. Part of his restitution was giving tips to law enforcement people regarding fraud.

Absolutely Fascinating plus the disertation about How to be a Man. Father & Husband is particularly humble because is true. Thank you a lot for all

not smart? then how the hell did you pass the bar.. And i think he invented social engineering..

Trump voters?

truly an amazing story and tremedous orator. a wealth of knowledge with the extreme ability to relay it. Works for a domestic terrorist organization of which I have no respect for whatsoever. The WTC bombing killed 6 of my countrymen and they did it. Sure, you can work for the FBI and do good things, but the head is still a snake. Were he a patriot, he would be fighting more towards exposing them rather than working for them. but they have him doing the good things. catching embezzlers, etc.. the true wall street parasites and top, top white collar crime is protected by the FBI and congress. what a pathetic scene. This Frank shed a light on being a good dad. and Ive seen what divorce has done to other kids. i never even hear of parents as good as mine. it's such a nightmare out there for young adults whose childhood was horrible and the private prison industry is just wringing their hands to get them behind bars. drugs takes the place of the pain, so they imprison them. Holy Cow. what a society.

Liar, swindler, and yes a criminal....but oh my goodness you want to talk about one of the most interesting lives you could ever imagine? This guy has lived one. I could listen to him talk forever I think. Just amazing the things he's done and how his mind worked. How he was able to pick up on things so quickly and turn them to his advantage. Absolutely riveting to listen to.

I met Frank Abagnale when I was a young police officer in Houston, Texas. Almost everything Abagnale said about himself was a lie. I sat through his "bank teller seminar" as the bank required a police officer to be present whenever there were people in the bank. Most of which he had to say was simple observations and information he lifted from seasoned bank tellers - there was nothing new in his talk.I took notes, and accessed his "prison time", "law license" (I am now a lawyer), his becoming an airline pilot, and the other nonsense claims using the National Crime Information Computer (NCIC). It was all rubbish. Frank would linger around the police officers trying to garner stories. When confronted about the lies, Frank would simply say, "Oh, I used an assumed name, (or) I changed the dates, and that actually happened in France". He simply would change his story to make his lies true. The FBI had never heard of him. And, my office was in the same small building with the US Secret Service for 20 years, and none of them had heard of him except through the movie. They too saw him as a blowhard. When his book came out I thought will that's his greatest fraud. One of the endorsements on the book cover was from an "assistant prosecutor in Harris County" (Houston). That wasn't exactly correct as the "prosecutor" worked only traffic tickets - hardly a seasoned assistant DA. Indeed, his title was assistant city attorney, and only prosecuted traffic tickets that carried no jail time.. Frank has been a source of amusement for myself and a few other old cops who saw him as a glorified story teller. Frank's greatest coup was the movie with Tom Hanks; I'm sure he laughed all the way to the bank. And, now he is a "renowned cybersecurity expert" - such rubbish. I've been following his career now for over 40 years. Lastly, he always speaks of his dashing good looks as a young man. Sorry Frank, but your lack of looks, and remarks made by the women at the bank is what initially piqued my interest.

The movie inspired me as a kid, he was like a for real Ferris Bueller.

Everybody admires this guy, but in the end, he is a dishonest cheater. Talking you into liking him, while he fucks you up, is his trademark, dont forget that!!!

Technology breeds crime but there are some people that actually do good with this technological crime I have seen more Smiles on more faces than anyone could ever shake a stick at and even that I feel is putting it quite mildly PS good video there I have said that

Remarkable.

Google is just a spy machine for Israel.

Very smart man, he picked up fast

This is the America we loved.

Nice movie loved how it ended.

City Cat um, why politics? I'm a Trump supporter/voter and I love this. #moron

I didn't know white collar was based on real person. Awesome

here's a man that made a fool out of America and the FBI over and over and enjoy doing it and had fun doing it

Amazing talk. Thank you for your posting this. He owed up to his wrongs and made up for it then some! Thank you for your service sir.

Middle children obviously have big balls!

Building credit here and there....and than you are a good citizen.... hm...he is clearly trying to sell a story so people will comply with a controllable system. This leads me to the conclusion that Mr. Abagnale is doing a good job for our puppet masters who wants to have complete control over the world. Not a good thing at all!

The movie wasn't about *HIS* life, but rather the crook's life.

few years back i was in jail 2011. i found myself i dickhead pad mate who was a right drip, i woke up to the screws telling me i had to move out my cell i had been settled in for months cos he lied told the screws i was bullying him. i kicked off cos i was innocent ended up losing my privileges and ended up down the block aka solitary. Catch me if you can was a book i read during those 2 weeks. Amazing!

Fascinating talk! Amazing how a good Catholic education prepares you for success.

At the police station, when I was 11 years old, I had to choose either to live with my mother or my father. You were way luckier than me, Mr. Abagnale. Worse for me still, because at time, I chose the wrong side, the decision in which has ruined my life completely. The emotional and financial aspects of my life have been damaged so severely that there will never be a real recovery.

Is an incredible take on life> Only some people can pull this off, and then admit this later, is one special sole. Is one hell of a life. Lessons to learn to get ahead, But these time have changed by now;. Although, there are a few potential forger instructions to to still make life a bitch for Americans. So, Always beware, trust nobody, and report those who are worrisome. No shame when itn comes to save your kin, and the plane..

This was an amazing speech, that's a good man right there.

debit cards now offer the same level of fraud protection as credit cards. Regulation E sets the liability limits, but most debit card issuers (like for example, Discover) match the same fraud protection of their credit cards as they do with their debit cards. Discover will instantly reverse fraudulent transactions on your account, putting the money immediately back into your account while they conduct their investigation. sure while not all debit card issuers are equal, the reputable ones give you the same fraud protection. also, on average, someone spends 22% less using cash and debit cards than they do using a credit card

How did no one checked his pilot id number?

Wow...he speaks like a Niagra falls.......no stammering and hesitations......of course very interesting narration style.

The movie was amazing, but him in real life is incredible!

The delivery sounds a bit rehearsed. I listened to another speech he gave and it sounded almost exactly the same. Nonetheless, great story!

The guy's a genius.Respect.

Tim Sundles gives us Another perspective of this speech and TRUSONA capabilities. Trying to have complete control of people's lives.. no thanks. Also why would you want to purchase a product to protect VPN when it caiters to the CIA, FBI, and other undisclosed intelligence agencies?? The excuse is it protects you from bad people, thieves, ect well what if the individual within the government is the bad guy?? They have an ex con behind all of this... I personally would use a privately owned company that doesn't work hand in hand with federal government institutes to replace the "passport" for tracking and identifying purposes which also allows full autonomy of the person's life. I'll never play another Microsoft game or use another Microsoft product. They invested 10 million into this for all of thier "gaming" good way to get the younger population in on the scam.. not to mention even accessing your personal desk top or lap top This technology was made for the CIA to track people with 100% accuracy on who the individual is through internet so they no longer need a person on the ground next to you to identify you. This technology was also created in part after the ideas of a criminal who was caught and prosecuted by the FBI, that now works for the FBI... so in other words a man with a crimanl mind is working for the FBI on how to have complete control over your life.... I'll pass... There is also a video of that man at a conference explaining what this technology will allow them to do to an individual they disagree with. Frank Abagnale is the man's name. Look it up! The example he gives a is actually quite rudimentary. There are many more sophisticated applications to this technology, almost endless... Helpful?

The only time I have ever heard a man give credit to a woman for PROVIDING him with things. I don't know to what degree he really meant it and what his motives are, but regardless, it sure was nice to hear a man give credit to a woman for being a provider of things in his life.

Catch commorade Dummy Don douchebag and we will !!!!

The movie glamorized what was a sad time. Nice man.

*A M A Z I N G!*

This is how you should live your life in 2018 talk, truly Amazing talk from the heart!!! What an Amazing guy!! And what Amazing takes!!! The Love it was what transformed him! I wish governments can listen to their people and understand that violence only creates more violence! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

well, he definetly didn't tell his story for the first time :D :D

I loved the Story,.... until he start to tell about the Future. This speech is a scam! Then he revealed why he used his own past to build confidence in the room, nemlid sell the idea of no password, Nobody can imagine that nobody can hack into the digital network. This speech is a scam

not everyone gets a 2nd chance, i was raised in actual abusive households until i was kicked out at 14 for trying to stop my step father beating my mum, became a drug addict and a criminal and ended up in jail, ive turned my life around without any help from anyone, but i didnt get a 2nd chance theres no way i could get a job in law enforcement even though id luv too and i could do it really well considering my criminal past, so your a very very lucky guy.

Old white male. Michelle Obama is angry.

Saw him speak at Kearney State College in 1980. I was impressed then and still am. Talked to him after his lecture and he was a very nice person.

Hes conned the FBI ;)

Best book I ever read was "catch me if you can"

47:30 Great question by the audience, but highly untruthful response by Frank Abagnale. The only reason his son got in the FBI is because Frank is in the FBI. When I worked for the Government myself I saw highly unqualified individuals take high ranking places due to the sole fact that their family members worked for the Government. The Government doesn't hide this fact, and in fact Government applications specifically ask to name family members who work for the agency you apply to. I saw one person who had this family connection take a high level role even though she put in less than 30 hours a week (arrived at noon each day) meanwhile qualified Contractors with 10+ years experience were passed over. The exclusive nature of the Government is the exact reason why the US Government is so incompetent: too many entitled individuals who lack talent and work ethic. Not all, but a good chunk of the workforce. My 2 cents.

I must be a total pussy 27:00 and I am crying

Cannot believe people left during the beginning of his talk and walked right past the podium rude or what..... an amazing story

@57:00 And which guarantees do we have that governments are not going to use these knew technologies against their own people ?

Thank you........

Not one zip of water, an absolute legend. Seen the movie many times, but Franks speech just puts me back in the movie again, wow.

Man. Can he read a Teleprompter well...

wow. Europe had some shitty prisons.

What an absolute fucking Zionist banking cartel fucking troll and of course it took nearly the end of this pathetic lecture to see that he is working for a cashless society and the fucking banks. What an utter prick but that's the fake world today folks and the System of Plunder as you can see, working very well with that GOON GOOGLE

Tu - 20180102. An excellent presentation and talk. This video indicates: "Published on Nov 27, 2017". If indeed the presentation occured around that time, I wonder why there was not mention (or any questions) about the cyber infiltration activity recently of the Russians in the US. Was no one curious?

daddy

LOL.....Love that sneky part --telling the dud in a green T-shirt lots of BS..."".If you not crocked you not going to FBI for sure or what...man this is sick system

USA=$ all of it´s running with a crapy system as base......Just like the helth system and the tax system ....totaly fucked up....All about Creditcard living...how stupid o a system is that ....I gotr work mates living on cred .....still theu make no money to show ore....Cred is like BBB - Im hapy living in Scandinavia ...the land o the free

Think the last part o this video is just crap and fake ,,,,,try to hide the truth never end up good ,,,,,still this man had a amazing life and I bet he contrib to the better

This man is a pro o scams....and he opend up the low safety systems on airlines for sure....

The things he talk about in the end is why i never would buy a Smart-Tv, Alexa, or anything with "Internet of Things". Someone should make electric cars but without all the unecessary electric stuff that doesn´t make the car go or start.

awesome and then we can finally have 1984 and brave new world. what forsight

problem is the guy was such a good liar that you would never know when he's lying. clearly evaded question at the end about ever flying as a agent. and all these Harvard and Yale alumni in the FBI awful lot of in breeding, you would rarely have to worry about a fellow agent ratting you out. cyber technology, - A.I,. block technology, scary stuff. to allow Bot's to get to the point that their controlling human's is beyond insane. he even touched a little on the hegelian dialectic ,never let a crisis go to waste. other than that the guy sure can tell one heck of story.

Very inspirational, the guy did what he had to do to survive, paid his dues & turned his life around.

Nice talk but not everyone can have access to a credit card or one that has a low amount of interest. So I will use my debit card until then!

Mr Abagnale, Sir - you tell it from the heart, and a man of God. be blessed Sir.

Thank You Google. I always wondered who this man would be, and wanted to see him talk. It is so great to see him tell his story. He speaks without a flinch, an Amazing Speaker and mind. So incredible to hear him speak , esp about financial safety, I wonder what he thinks of the blockchain and crypto? Thank you again

i love how he is consistent when he tells his story at different events

Teaching his kids how to get into debt. Great.

Dude, how could they miss the chance of asking the most important question of all: How did he pass the bar exam without attending any law school classes?

27:30 - Yeah Frank Abagnale its called LOVE...

Frank Abagnale is with them. Not us the people. Hes a mouth piece. Cant you tell hes pushing mass surveillance. ANd what dose that bring...less threat..um no its called absolutely no privacy for us 'the normal person'.

41 years at the FBI ay Frank Abagnale. why not throw in the towel now? While you still can. You think you're wise Frank Abagnale, but you are mistaken. you got a mouth to speak that's it.

OMG the legend....

The audience is full of brainwashed nerds... And they think they're clever, but really they are so far up GOOGLES ASS its unbelievable... they love the fuels intellectual ego power they get from thinking they are futuristic and helpful to humanity, But really they are in this bubble of illusion. bunch of techy sheep is what they are.

Ah, GOOGLE is HONORED to present the real Frank Abagnale, Renowned Cybersecurity And Fraud Prevention Expert, Bestselling Author & Subject of Catch Me If You Can.. awww how sweet. Give me a brake, Frank Abagnale is a puppet, think i can almost see the strings. wow.

Nice sub story Frank Abagnale. now sit down and shut up, intill you're told what to say.... Oh wait YOU DO. Check out Mr innocent - Frank Abagnale... you're not fooling us. as long as these GOOGLE SLAVES are getting paid, they don't give a shit about us. I could go on.

Frank Abagnale is a puppet !!......I think I could allmost see the strings behind him. and Frank Abagnale F.Y.I We dont give a damn about you shitty life story. quite your job and do everyone a favor and stop pushing pointless tech.

L.E.G.E.N.D...

he is a good speaker

What a beautiful man and his heart, that he spoke, at the last of his narration at about 20 minutes in.

I can't believe people actually believe anything put out by Google. No wonder we are losing our freedoms. This man is a professional liar, and everyone applauds him. You know who else is a great deceiver? Yep, and he will destroy your soul if you let him. Wake up people.

Hail Satan

He talks like he's reciting a script or memorized passages of his book. odd

Lot of respect for this man...

Did any of you listen from the 57 minute mark???? You all are gushing about how you'll never have a day of privacy in your life within 5 years. Yaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Oh and they can kill me with my phone. Awesome!!!! Idiots.

https://www.arche-noah.at A Project from Austria, Called ARCH NOAH. They are saving Plant Seeds as well.

Proof that you need a good memory to be a pathological liar.

Did he say what the name of the website was that he uses for $12/mo that he can monitor is credit score and history?

I'd sign my house over to Frank today ...if he asked ....LOL

The question for me is if Google is supporting this Trusona tech he mentioned. Checked out their website and it is just in the very early stages. Trusona is nothingburger until we see some of the financial heavy shooters get onboard; Paypal, Amazon, banks etc.

As far as the debit cards being bad, can this be remedied by always using it as credit? Or does the mere existence of this debit card make it inherently vulnerable?

Fake it till you make it

One can understand that this gentleman can sell you anything with such an appealing persona and that coherent, fluent, non-stop word flow. So I just got the Trusona app and juggling a database of more than 100 passwords I am totally ready for that concept. Tried it on WordPress - fingerprint, point camera, click verify and I'm in! There are however all ready competing and widely implemented similar systems in use. It's gonna be a battle

I’m the 666,001 st person to like this...

What a story .... amazing. I’m not condoning thievery but you have to admit if your gonna do it this is the way to go.

Saw this guy on Johnny Carson one night, didn’t have a clue who he was . That was back in 1978 and I never forgot his stories.

Well that took a nose dive when he had to mention "god". Was quite impressed until that moment...shame.

Things we now know: 1. FBI is a completely corrupt gestahpo secret police working to destroy the presidency (ref: judicial watch) 2. Steven shpiel ice-berg: is a hardcore pedophile that's been protected for decades (ref: http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2018/01/blind-items-revealed-37.html)

He is a fascinating person with such eloquence, charm and wisdom. Wish most men would possess half the curiosity and adventurous soul few can ever aspire to.

He is a criminal ..... period.

One of the best speeches i've ever seen... what a beautiful soul and brilliant professional!!!!

196 dislikes. I find this rather odd.

Amazing!

Maybe it's because Frank is very articulate, but why can't anyone in the audience talk properly :

confidence is all you need

He has very round features. It makes for a very trustworthy face.

So humble. This guy learned how to operate a $1 million piece of equipment to use it to forge cheques, he casually passed a law exam, and he is still at the top of his game in terms of defeating security. But he says he's not a genius.

very informative

The size of the balls on this guy just to try this stuff is still amazing to me but I guess it was a different world back then.

When will computers be able to read minds?

This is so educational and realistic!! Thanks a lot for sharing.

truly amazing what a man could listen again thankyou

Only disagree with his statements regarding Trusona. Time will tell if his word holds true.

True story: I know Frank from a couple past meetings. We met last at a workshop for invited Federal ( I believe a couple people were from state agencies) agents that all were, I was informed, "state department" employees, which Frank actually told me meant they were C.I. A. (Other than when we greeted each other, that's the first thing Frank said to me) The workshop segment that Frank and I were part of was titled "Spotting The Tells Of All Liars". I spent 25 years hornswaggling people out of millions of dollars....25 years running identity and loan, insurance and real estate scams, hustling the worlds top five star hotels and casinos for rooms and chips and once, in Nassau Bahamas, for a $125,000 loan. I loved every minute of it. But....no matter how good you are.....And I was fucking good.....you make mistakes. I spent a total of eleven years in the joint, about seven and a half in the Feds, rest split between Fla and Arizona. Not worth it. Split up my family, alienated my kids and lost my wife to another(honest) man. Just not worth it. Plus, the technology now can put you away quick. And I know all the new stuff. I've lectured on it. Yeah man, not worth it. But good goddam almighty I miss that life. HEY.....Are ya all doubters? Anybody want to learn or learn about all of it? ALL of it? dwinfr57@gmail.com I can tell or teach (most) people things that ole Franky could never do.

So "they" will be able to assassinate you from 5000 miles away, interesting.

Absolute genius and an amazing story...

Another lying Jew. Posing. As a Christian.

Wow amazing story . Insightful and interesting.

What he says at the end about how cyber crime goes black is very telling....listen , the cat is out of the bag and it's not a nice little kitty....this is important information. Pay attention.

A good man.

I stumbled on this video by chance and I am so grateful that I did. Frank Abagnale, an amazing person with an incredible personality and a story that can only occur in America, the most amazing country in the world.

Great video!

This man is presidential material. I would vote for him!

This man, Frank Abagnale, is a character that speaks to the American spirit: his humility, his candid honesty, remorse and his redemption. A kid responding to the stimuli presented by his environment the best way he knew how. What a story?

I've been trying for 10 minuets to come up with words to describe how his story touched my heart. I couldn't hold back the tears when he talked about his loving father and his parents divorce. His lessons here are truly something we can all live by. Our ability to love is the greatest gift of humanity, and we should use that gift to it's fullest. Family comes in many forms but only if you live in a way that earns their love and respect you've done good in life. I'm gonna remember his lesson for the rest of my life.

Most of the movie was fake, never happened.

Eh ... the second that cheque gets scanned it will get rejected. Doesn't matter how good the forgery is. The second the pilot card gets scanned it will get rejected. His examples actually show how it is impossible to do it now. It is easier to make the stuff which would pass in the past - but it is harder to fool the system. It is however much easier to fool the average joe - much easier to con the general population but near-impossible to fool the bank. When you impersonate and do idtheft which is popular now that is stealing from the population also not the bank or the corp. Rather naive look he has - amazed he is employed... or he is spitting bullshit because he doesn't want people to know how to steal (his job now to prevent it he won't share his grey-hat secrets).

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this speech transcribed?

Brought me to tears. What a speaker.

Surprised he wasn't labeled a racist yet especially at Google. "There are a lot of fathers but very few Daddy's". Isn't that the truth about 70% of the time...

WOW! You are an inspiration Sr. and a REAL MAN.
