I, also, received this picture.
I believed he was a scammer from the getgo, just by the way he talked. So, I did a google image search that led me to this page.
He claims to be Richard Walkowski, age 35, going by the username Richard442442 on the app "TikTok". We then moved to Hangouts to chat there, I'm not even sure what his username is on there.
Claimed that he was a soldier out of Texas somewhere, I forget. From Roswell, NM. He claimed to be getting deployed to Nigeria today.
What a crock. Lol.
Just wanted to give you guys a heads up that he's on TikTok now too.
