Between the ages of 16 and 21, Frank W. Abagnale successfully posed as an airline pilot, an attorney, a doctor and cashed millions in fraudulent checks. In case you didn’t read the best-selling book…spoiler alert…he got caught and his exploits were depicted in the movie “Catch Me If You Can,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Join the AARP Fraud Watch Network for a presentation by Abagnale on protecting yourself from identity theft at 6:45 p.m., Oct. 12 at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts, Bomhard Theatre, 501 W. Main St., Louisville. The event is free.

Doors will open at 5:30 pm with the program beginning promptly at 6:45 pm.

Light hors d’oeurves will be served. Registration is required.

Seating for this free event is first come, first served. This event is overbooked to ensure a full house. Due to no-shows, it is not likely that we will have more guests than seats, but it is a possibility. Should you find the event full upon your arrival, please note that AARP cannot guarantee entry.
