Beware “Perfect” Resumes

Check it out…


The Great Pretender

Say hello to Fred Brito, a smiling cherubic liar.

One day he was known as Father Fred, while on another, he was a high-profile fundraiser, getting chummy with Hollywood stars. And there’s another legal document saying that on the same day, he was really a court-appointed psychiatrist.

They’re all Fred Brito. And they’re all assumed identities, products of the fertile imagination of a confidence man.

And that’s exactly what Fred did or still does; no one’s quite sure. What is certain is that along the way, Fred has made his share of friends—and more than a few enemies.

Tonight, we’ll take you on the hunt for the real Fred Brito—inside the mind and the world of someone who’s not just a con man but a world-class imposter.

And you’ll meet some of his victims, who only learned they’d been conned… when WE told them.
