Publisher's Summary

When Frank Abagnale trains law-enforcement officers for the FBI's National Academy about identity theft, he asks agents for their addresses and nothing more. The next day, he returns with everything he would need to steal their lives: Social Security numbers, dates of birth, current salary, checking account numbers, the names of everyone in their family, and more. This illustrates how easy it is for anyone from anywhere in the world to assume your identity and, in a matter of hours, devastate your life in ways that can take years to recover from. Considering that someone in the U.S. is victimized in this way every four seconds, Stealing Your Life is the reference everyone needs, by an unsurpassed authority on the latest identity-theft schemes.


What the Critics Say

"Offer[s] spine-tingling terror for anyone who has a Social Security number and birth date." ( Publishers Weekly)

Don't Buy If Not American

Was excited to read this, thinking it would be an education in con men. Instead, I found an America-centric book with almost no information of use for anyone outside the US.

The writing is judgemental of people and full of stereotyping and sweeping statements.

Narrator is decent if somewhat monotonous.
