In another case of imposter syndrome, a 26-year-old college dropout (or long-term undergrad, depending on whom you ask) was arrested in Florida on charges that he passed himself off as an attorney with a Harvard law degree to con clients out of more than $50,000. Republican presidential hopeful and former Law & Order star Fred Thompson makes a cameo in the arrest affidavit.

While prosecutors compare Robert Brady’s escapades to those of Catch Me If You Can con artist Frank Abagnale Jr., Brady’s defense attorney argues that his client told only the truth about his role as “consultant” at his ex-stepfather’s law firm, and well, “If people misunderstood that, that's regrettable.”
