CARSON CITY, NV-- A Carson City man was featured on ABC's 20/20 Friday night. He's accused of impersonating a Navy Seal and scamming hundreds of thousands of dollars out of the people who bought into his lies.

A.J. Dicken not only claimed to be a seal, but he also told people he fired the shot that killed Osama Bin Laden and has connections to the CIA.

He used those claims to start a popular military style self-defense school in Carson City, even though he was never in the military.

Dicken told two local doctors he wanted to start an international security firm. Those doctors invested $850,000 into his company.

That money disappeared, and so did he.

ABC News tracked him down in Arkansas, but this time, the man known for elaborate stories had nothing to say.

Dicken faces several felony firearm charges in Nevada.
