John Fallout or John Fallout Scam refers to a fake DM from a Fallout character named "John Fallout" as part of the Fake Celebrity Scam Messages meme. Following the virality of the fake DM in April 2024, TikTokers started to create more lore about the character that allegedly appears in Fallout 4.


On April 24th, 2024, Redditor[1] @JohnGaming986 posted a fake screenshot message on the /r/BatmanArkham subreddit featuring "John Fallout," a character model based on the Fallout 4 game, in which he messages a person with the following text, "Hi it's me John Fallout I need 2000 bottle caps to get into new vegas so I can save the mojave desert. War doesn't change." The post (shown below) amassed over 530 likes and 30 comments in two months.
