A lifetime conman who allegedly operated like "Catch Me if You Can" subject Frank Abagnale pleaded not guilty Monday to a host of recent alleged scams.

Jeremy Wilson, 42, was indicted for forgery, possession of stolen property and possession of a forged instrument and will likely face additional charges, prosecutors said.

Wilson, whose true identity was unknown at the time of his arrest in early January, is being held on $1 million bail.

After being sprung from prison in November for similar shenanigans, he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he posed as a U.S. Army veteran, prosecutors said.

He financed a 2016 BMW X3 -- worth at least $50,000 -- under a fake name, stole at least $40,000 in cash then came to Manhattan where he rented an apartment using fake documents, prosecutors said.

Legendary lawyer Edward Hayes represented Wilson at the proceeding. After, he said he's still sorting out the wild tale.

"I'd like to say something intelligent about this case but it's so confusing that I don't understand it myself," Hayes quipped.
