Millions of Americans get scammed every year.
Frank Abagnale, a reformed con artist and author of "Scam Me If You Can," was famously portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie "Catch Me If You Can." He now works as a private consultant, author and public speaker with the goal of preventing fraud.
Abagnale thinks technology is only making it easier for scammers to operate today. "What I did 50 years ago is 4,000 times easier to do today," Abagnale said.
He personally does not use social media and said it can be a potential gold mine for any scammers looking to make you a victim.
Abagnale said fraudsters usually aren't digging through your bio for obscure facts like your mother's maiden name or the name of your first pet. They just need three very specific things.
