Matthew Lesko (1943- )

You've most likely seen him on TV commercials or in late-night informercials telling you how to get free money. You probably recognize him on sight for his Riddler-like suit covered with question marks and his other wacky antics. Well, his name is Matthew Lesko and he is a native of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Matthew Lesko was born in 1943 and spent his boyhood in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Lesko earned Bachelors Degree at Marquette University, served in the US Navy in Vietnam, and earned his Masters Degree in Computer Science from American University in Washington DC.

After researching government grants for over 25 years, Lesko began to write and publish books about getting free grants and other financial assistance from the US Government.

Several of Matthew Lesko's books - including Free Money to Pay Your Bills, Free Legal Help, and Free $tuff for Seniors - are available to borrow for libraries throughout the Lackawanna County Library System.
