Catch him if you can: art of the steal taught at bank conference

ANYONE lucky enough to find themselves in Miami next month, with the requisite $2,310 (£1,430) will be able to meet a famous reformed con-man at the Private Banking Latin America conference.

Frank Abignale, played by Leonardo DiCaprio in 2002’s Catch Me If You Can, now spends time advising financial institutions.

However, the event, which is really a chance for financiers to learn how to protect their assets, is perhaps unfortunately being billed as a way to acquire Abignale’s “insights on the art of the steal”.
