Some suggestions for you :

I partied in every capital in Europe, basked on all the famous beaches, and good-timed it in South America, the South Seas, the Orient, and the more palatable portions of Africa.

When 'Catch Me If You Can' was published back in 1980, I never dreamed that it would become a bestseller, much less a major motion picture and now a big Broadway musical. What's amazing about the book is that it has never gone out of print.

I don't believe that a piece of paper will excuse my actions. In the end, only my actions will.

If my forgeries looked as bad as the CBS documents, it would have been 'Catch Me In Two Days'.

I contend that there really are no more con men. There's no need for con men anymore. There's no need for the very sophisticated, suave guy, the well-dressed guy. Today, you steal with the computer from thousands of miles away - from China, from Libya, from Hong Kong. Your victim's never going to see you, so there's no need to be any of that.

It's amazing how much information we share in social media, then we wonder why people steal our identity.

Most people don't reconcile their bank accounts.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Whether you're earning $7 an hour or $700,000 a year, it's very important to protect your credit rating.

You fight technology with technology, so you have to stay one step ahead of the criminal. It's very much a chess game - they make a move, you have to make a move.

You get to a point in your life where you go, 'I don't remember what I did.'

I think my wife understood from the day I met her how important she was to me and how important it was for me becoming a husband and a father.

Too many of us are vulnerable, and I look forward to working with AARP to advise people about the safest ways to conduct their financial transactions and manage social media.
