    Got the same preprinted introduction. I was in a bad mood, told him’ ” lets cut through the chase, what do you want from me, how much and what for.?” Never heard from him again. Blogged.

      He? You mean the General? Actually, you have never spoken to him. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of scammers that use his stolen photos.

    It is estimated that 85% of the crimes is not reported. People are ashamed and feel powerless. Don’t be. You are a victim of a criminal.

    Be beware of your followers, or the ones you follow ore give your 1= to. The not always your friends. Some have beautiful communities, many followers, they just choose and pick who their next victim is. A German guy cussed me out in open net, under a friends post, than apologized send me flowers and wanted to love me outside google. I told him to by a one way ticked to the moon, and I catch up with him.-

    I am currently playing him in Words with Friends. He has told me his wife died, he has a son in military school, is in Afghanistan on a peace-keeping mission, and longs for a wife who will love his son as her own. I’m still talking to him and playing dumb just to see what else he tries to say. Definitely not giving him any information or money, though!

      I too had this scam!! I allowed a two week period of time for this to develop- eventually he did ask for Google Cards in various amounts. This is a particularly horrific crime, impersonating an officer of the statute of the real Gen. Nicholson. I hope he is caught!! This has to be stopped. I emailed the Dept of Defence and told this story- they did get back to me and assured me steps would be taken.

      I just got a friend request from him on FB a couple of days ago. I thought it was suspicious because I don’t have any ties to the military & didn’t know why he would friend me.
      I checked out his FB page and it said he was a widower & serving in Afghanistan. His page looked like it had been recently created. I ignored his friend request. I feel bad for the real

    Someone is now using his image on Instagram. I have 4 requests to follow him, all with different account names, all with same photos.It’s getting creepy.

    Just found out that someone in Nigeria is using John Nicholson’s pictures as a catfish lead. DO NOT RESPOND to anything from this man. The poor General needs to call Facebook. Delete all communication with him!

    He is going by the name Johnson Graham Douglas now, LOL.

    Yes I have seen and talked to this man. Under the name Josh Nicholson. We were fb friends. I only friend him because he was friends wirh one mutual friend. I am a married Christian. I was praying for him. Began to get curious if he was authentic. Did research and found he is a liar. I unfriend him and blocked him. He sure needs to be stopped. There are a lot of vulnerable women out there.

    Right now scammer uses General pictures on Instagram . I dont think so that Real General has posted his fotos in Instagram

    I recently connected with LT Gen John W Nicholson Jr on the 23 of Sept 2017. He said he was divorced and had a son named Mark, who needed money to go to school. The designed Twitter page of John Nicholson Jr. looked authentic to me. How he was in Afganistan was in his cabin, which was a little peculiar to me. I would love to catch this guy, using good American military men to manipulate women to get money from them, who so want to have a relationship with a real man. He sent me an account number and bank name, and I was to send the money to a Dafe S Ejoiro who was his son’s teacher in Africa. I wish I could help catch this guy. He still has the twitter page up. of course, I don’t speak with him often.

    Yes there is a guy using his photos on a dating site called Shtyle…and I noticed that he is still there

    My name is Elizabeth and I was contacted by a military man with that name and photo. I didn’t know the real John w Nicholson at that moment. He sent me even his code number, supposedly secret, since his commander from the Department of Defense, Ralph Wales, was, preparing his leave. It costed me almost 6,000usd. Up to the end of may he was claiming to be John Nicholson and that he was deceived by Mr. Ralp Wales he claims to also be a victim. Well, I was scammed and I’m paying that amount of money.

    • Romance Scams Now Editorial Team July 22, 2017 at 9:43 pm - Reply

      WHY DO YOU CARE? HE IS A SCAMMER! JUST MOVE ON AND TRY TO GET OVER HIM.

      • KATHIE July 22, 2017 at 9:47 pm - Reply

        Because he send pictures that I cant find any where on social media. Just wanted to know if anyone had seen them ir knew his sons name.

          UNDERSTANDABLE. ONE OF THE HARD THINGS AFTER A SCAM IS TO LET GO OF THE CONNECTION TO THE FACE YOU HAVE FOCUSED ON. IN THIS CASE YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. SO YOU NOW NEED TO TURN AWAY AND FOCUS ON YOURSELF.

          • KATHIE July 24, 2017 at 1:44 pm

            I’m sure you are correct, but noone has seen all the pictures of him out of uniform or the ones of his son. Not to mention I can’t find anything on social media either. We’ve talk now for three to four months and my heartbreaks because doesnt want to talk to me because I called him a scammer and all sorts of things. He said I hurt him really bad. He has never once ask me for money. He has only shown love and respect for me.

          • Romance Scams Now Editorial Team July 24, 2017 at 4:49 pm

            SOME SCAMS ARE ALLOWED TO DEVELOP OVER MONTHS, SOME ARE KEPT IN RESERVE FOR WHEN THE SCAMMER IS READY. YOU CAN BELIEVE HE IS A SCAMMER OR NOT, ALL WE CAN DO IF PROVIDE ADVICE AND OUR KNOWLEDGE FROM THE 26 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WE HAVE.

          • KATHIE July 24, 2017 at 5:14 pm

            I know that you’re probably more than absolutely correct. I just hurts to know you’ve been scammed and falling in love with somebody that would do such a thing. Any more advice on how to get over this.

          • Romance Scams Now Editorial Team July 24, 2017 at 5:24 pm

            YOU DID NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE PERSON YOU SEE. YOU WERE MANIPULATED BY A TEAM OF PROFESSIONAL SCAMMERS. ARE YOU ON FACEBOOK? IF SO WE CAN SEND YOU AN INVITATION TO ONE OF OUR SCAM VICTIMS’ SUPPORT GROUPS

          • KATHIE July 24, 2017 at 5:26 pm

            I am on Facebook but I can’t go there because I’m married and my husband would find out and be very very angry period with every reason to be.
