ft. In this guide, he reveals everything you need to know to avoid becoming a victim yourself. In addition to excellent, up-to-date advice about the newest identity scams and how to avoid them, Frank Abagnale (played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie) offers up choice tidbits from his life story, which demonstrate how easy it is to take advantage of unsuspecting victims.
No one knows better than Abagnale just how prevalent identity theft has become. Among the facts he has uncovered, perhaps the most alarming is this: 49% of all victims have no idea how their identity was stolen, and they never find out. The guide does answer many key questions, however, including:

Although the facts are chilling, the Real U Guide to Identity Theftis anything but cold. In typical Real U style, Abagnale takes a wry look at the truth and spells out the facts in colorful, magazine-style spreads, so that learning how to protect yourself from this crime is almost as much fun as catching one of the criminals would be.
