THE TRUE STORY OF A REAL FAKE
This deck is inspired by the extraordinary true story of a brilliant young master of deception.
Catch Me If You Khan is based on Frank W. Abagnale's Jr. autobiography of the same name, which chronicles how he – as a runaway teenager, without so much as a high school diploma – managed to pass himself off as an airline pilot all while cashing in millions of dollars in fraudulent checks.
"I ran away from home and suddenly found myself a teenager alone in the world. I had to grow up very quickly and become very creative in order to survive. But what started out as survival became more and more of a game. I was an opportunist, so when I saw an opening I asked myself, ‘Could I get away with that?’ Then there was the satisfaction of actually getting away with it. The more I got away with, the more of a game it became – a game I knew I would ultimately lose, but a game I was going to have fun playing until I did.” - Khan, Savvy Skiptracer
