The “autobiography” of Frank Abagnale claims that before his 19th birthday, he successfully performed cons worth millions of dollars by posing as a Pan American World Airways pilot, a Georgia doctor, and a Louisiana parish prosecutor, which served as the basis for the screenplay that Jeff Nathanson wrote. Jeff Nathanson also wrote the screenplay. There are sure holes in his story that need to be filled in.
