Lake Oswego, Oregon January 8th 2009, Bodelin Technologies manufacturer of the worlds first handheld USB digital microscope has been given the Seal of Approval by legendary author, lecturer and worlds foremost document fraud investigator, Frank W. Abagnale.
“In my 34 years as a secure document consultant, I have not seen a better tool than the ProScope. This is not only an excellent and highly recommended forensic device for law enforcement, but should be a must for the TSA, financial institutions, check cashers, and anyone who is trying to verify the authenticity of passports, drivers licenses, car titles, currency, controlled narcotic prescriptions and many other secure documents. This product has my full endorsement and I highly recommend it.”
The ProScope HR connects to the USB port of almost any laptop or desktop computer and allows the user to view almost any surface at magnifications up to 1000X. Starting at $349 the ProScope HR is lead free, UVC (plug and play) and comes with Windows and Mac software to capture stills video and time lapse yet can be operated without software live over the internet with programs like Skype™ and Apple iChat™.
Mr. Abagnale is the author of “Catch Me If You Can,” “Stealing Your Life,” “The Art of the Steal,” and the “Real U Guide to Identity Theft”. Of course, many know the film adaptation of “Catch Me If you Can” directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Mr. Abagnale is one of the world’s most respected authorities on the subjects of forgery, embezzlement and secure documents. For over thirty years he has lectured to and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world.
“We have worked in seven areas of law enforcement investigation, science education and quality control investigations around the world since 2001 but winning Mr. Abaganle’s seal of approval is the greatest honor for our little Oregon made ProScope HR” said Peter White Director of Sales and Marketing for Bodelin Technologies.
