A subject of Dateline NBC, Dr. Phil, and soon to appear on Oprah and 60 Minutes, Fred Brito has spent his adult life using aliases and phony credentials to pull off one elaborate deception after another. He has lied his way into jobs as a Catholic priest, a youth counselor for a foster care agency and executive director of the National Kidney Foundation of Southern California, among many others. What made him feel like he had to turn to this lifestyle, and what is he doing now that his "secret" is out? Find out in the EXCLUSIVE interview!
