(Reuters) - FBI Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Mark Hilts (L), chief of the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) 2 - Crimes Against Adults, and SSA Susan Kossler of BAU 2 are pictured at their office in Quantico, Virginia April 1, 2011.

The hope is the BAU agents, whose work in profiling serial killers has been popularized in books, movies and on TV, can get into the minds' of fraudsters and see what makes them tick.
