Homeless Man and Couple MADE UP Gas Story To Scam $400k on GoFundMe

A homeless man allegedly conspired with a couple by making up a heartwarming story to scam donors into giving them $400,000 on GoFundMe.

Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico, of Bordentown, New Jersey, made headlines after setting up a fundraising page for Johnny Bobbitt last year.

She said Bobbitt came to her aid and gave her his last $20 when she ran out of gas on an Interstate 95 exit ramp in Philadelphia late one night last October.

More than 14,000 people donated to the GoFundMe campaign McClure and D'Amico set up as a way to give back to Bobbitt.

But now, it has been revealed that McClure, D'Amico and Bobbitt will all face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception

They deliberately prevented donors from knowing information 'that would affect their judgement about solicited contribution to that fundraising effort,' the complaint claims.

After the GoFundMe campaign went viral last year, the trio appeared on shows like Good Morning America and conducted a number of interviews together.
