Some suggestions for you :

You have to believe in what you do. Take something you truly believe in and go about it in an honest way.

I was just a guy who ran away from home at 16 because my parents were getting a divorce and the judge was making me choose which parent to live with. I didn't want to make that choice. I ended up in New York City.

We all grow up. Hopefully, we get wiser. Age brings wisdom, and fatherhood changes one's life completely.

One of the most popular scams is what they call account takeover. You write me a check, and I simply go online to a check-printing service and order 200 checks with your account information.

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.

The front of a cheque alone gives someone enough information to steal your identity.

I didn't like taking money from individuals.

My proudest moment was probably when my oldest boy finished law school and went on to become an FBI agent. It was just beyond my imagination that - with my background - my own son would become an FBI agent.

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.

I didn't sit outside the bank and plan. I just went in and ad libbed because I was so young. But I was smart enough to know I would absolutely get caught.

I'm glad I'm a draw. People know that, not only am I the guy that did it, I spent 40 years on the other side.

I went from 198 pounds to 109 while I was in prison in France, and I had to tie my clothes on with rope.

Most people don't reconcile their bank accounts.

Airline pilots are men to be admired and respected. Men to be trusted. Men of means. And you don't expect an airline pilot to be a local resident. Or a check swindler.
