PREFACE
Success doesn't mean the absence of failures; it means the attainment of ultimate objectives. It means winning the war, not every battle. Edwin C.

The Mokeys from the Arctic

... The Monkeys from the Arctic Nowadays succeeding in the music industry it’s very challenging. Moreover if you come from England and you have the pressure of big rock bands like The Beatles behind you. Arctic Monkeys have now four CD’s on the street, but as all the bands they have been trough many changes and difficulties. I personally encourage people and listen to all of their songs. The Monkeys are like wine, the older, the better. And they are only 25. After their debut in 2006, their second CD, Favourite Worst Nightmare, wasn’t so good. It was a grey come back in general. It’s entertaining because you can dance to some songs, but it wasn’t so gripping as the first one. Only the songs “505” or “This house is a circus” are impressive and shine over all the other songs. With Humbug, their third album, they reached the top. They were bored of doing the same over and over. The album starts with a lot of energy and it gets better while you are listening to all the tracks. One particular strength of Humbug, is the use of keyboards, that gives the track an innovating sound never heard before. A marked difference between the two albums is that the band has grown up a lot and their sound is more mature than before. They won’t be anymore a teenage-rock band. I would strongly advise you to listen to them and if you have the chance, go to one of their concerts. A stunning performance is...

From the beginning his father, Frank Sr., is a huge role model for him and becomes the source of Frank’s longing for acceptance and appreciation.

...over 2.5 million dollars in phony checks. Frank's increasingly audacious work soon attracts the attention of Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks), an FBI agent who is determined to put Frank behind bars. Frank seems to enjoy being pursued by Carl, and even goes so far as to call Carl on the phone to chat every once in a while. While posing as a doctor, Frank falls in love with Brenda Strong (Amy Adams), a sweet girl working as a candy striper. When Frank asks Brenda to marry him, he decides to assume a new identity to impress her father, Roger (Martin Sheen) -- who happens to be the District Attorney of New Orleans, LA.

Catch Me If You Can

...Catch Me if You Can: An Entertaining Roller Coaster Ride Imagine having the ability to become an airline co-pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer all before turning the age of twenty-one. Well believe it or not; this became a reality for Frank Abagnale Jr. as he infiltrated the system in the 1960’s. The Steven Spielberg directed movie “Catch Me if You Can” brings out this true story, in which a sixteen year old runaway Frank Abagnale Jr. (played by Leonardo Dicaprio) began his “brilliant three year run as a master of deception” (Hollywood.com). In this three year stint, he also forges over a million dollars of fake checks across the country, creates several aliases for himself, and manages to become the youngest person on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Carl Hanratty, an FBI Bank Fraud Agent (played by Tom Hanks) engages with Abagnale Jr. in what Starpulse.com calls a “a highly enjoyable cat-and–mouse escapade.” After Frank Abagnale Jr. was eventually caught, Carl Hanratty realized that Abagnale’s check-savviness could be a benefit to his department in the FBI. He later went on to have a successful career as an FBI Agent in Check Fraud, instead of facing a timely prison sentence. The movie flows well due to a plethora of acting skills, well-written dialogue, and an entertaining back and forth battle that Abagnale Jr. encounters with Hanratty and also within himself. “Catch Me’s acting shines,” Hollywood.com raves. The movie contains a respectable and veteran class of Hollywood......

...The film I chose to write my analysis about is “Catch Me If You Can”. I chose this film because its based on a true story and it amazes me how this individual got away with a lot of things. How his professional clothing and communication with others influenced in whom he became and what he did to accomplish his goals. This film illustrates how identity isolates him from significant others such as his fiancée. I know many people are judged by what they wear in most situations. It surprises me how well he communicated with others and the things he did to get to where he wanted, how people, who didn’t even know him help him out, they wanted to give him everything. The main actor in this film, which was Frank Abagnale Jr. I believe had an amazing nonverbal communication with others. His movements, gestures, appearance and facial expression played a major role in this film. Impersonating a Pam Am co-pilot, teacher, a physician, and a lawyer, he is able to pass hundreds of fake checks only partly because the clothes make the man, more because he posses enough charm to acquire information, flights around the world and whatever he wanted. As it talks about in our textbook in chapter 6, nonverbal communication in clothing. Clothing is a means of communication nonverbally. It is suggested that clothing conveys over ten types of messages to others. In our textbook it explains that communicators that wear special clothing often gain persuasiveness. For example uniforms, as Frank...

...Check Fraud and Check Washing: Prevention and Strategies “What I did in my youth is hundreds of times easier today. Technology breeds crime.” or so says Frank William Abagnale, Jr (2008), one of the most infamous check forgers and imposters of all time as he reflects back to his reign as a check fraud kingpin of 1960’s. Some may remember the movie Catch Me If You Can (Spielberg, 2002) that stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks portraying the true story behind the great confidence trickster that is Frank Abagnale, Jr. Mostly known for his various impersonations as a security guard, airline pilot, teaching assistant, physician, and attorney, he is also widely known for his ability to forge checks and after numerous escapes from law enforcement leading up to his capture in France in 1969.

Check Fruad and Check Washing

...Conclusion___________________________________________________________7 References___________________________________________________________8 Introduction In 2002 DreamWorks produced a block buster film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks titled “Catch Me If You Can.” This film portrays the glamorous lifestyle and subsequent fall of perhaps the most infamous check fraud perpetrator of all time, Frank Abagnale. Fraud is defined as “deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence…” (Dictionary.com, 2012). Check washing is when a person would “…erase the ink on a check…and rewrite the check to themselves increasing the amount payable…” (Center, 1995-2009). If you saw “Catch Me If You Can,” this is what you witnessed Mr. Abagnale doing with the Pan Am pilot paychecks. Both of these types of fraud are very simple ways to steal from the consumer when they least expect it. Check Fraud According to the National Check Fraud Center, “check fraud is one of the largest challenges facing businesses and financial institutions today.” With the availability of home computers equipped with photograph editing software and the advances in printing technology, criminals are able to create duplicate checks in large numbers without ever leaving their homes. Victims can range from a consumer having a check stolen out of their wallet, an employer with a paycheck copied, or a business who accepts a fraudulent check for purchase of tangible assets. (Center, 1995-2009)...
