Shameless GoFundMe couple and homeless veteran who scammed well wishers out of 400K knew each other for a MONTH before they concocted fake story and now all face 10 years in prison for lying

Man accused of stealing homeless veteran's 400K GoFundMe donations with his girlfriend is taken into custody in New Jersey on unrelated warrants GoFundMe couple and homeless veteran knew each other for a MONTH before they made up story

  • Kate McClure, Mark D'Amico and Johnny Bobbitt were arrested on Thursday on deception and theft charges
  • They each face between five and 10 years in jail if convicted 
  • In  2017, they started a viral GoFundMe campaign called 'Paying it forward' which attracted $400,000
  • It claimed Bobbitt, a homeless veteran, used his last $20 to buy McClure gas when she ran out on the road
  • Prosecutors said on Thursday the trio actually met a month before they told the world they had 
  • Bobbitt hung around a casino that McClure and D'Amico frequented in Philadelphia and that is how they met
  • Afterwards, McClure told friends in texts that she lied to 'make people feel bad' and guilt them into donating
  • She and D'Amico have blown $300,000 on casinos, trips, handbags , jewelry and repaying family debt
  • When Bobbitt complained about them 'stealing' the money in August, they insisted they had done no wrong 
  • In March, D'Amico tried to shop a book idea called 'No Good Deed' which he thought would make him rich 
  • Prosecutors reviewed 60,000 text messages as part of their investigation after seeing red flags 
  • They said the trio would likely have gotten away with the scam if they hadn't started fighting over the money 
  • GoFundMe has vowed to refund every one of the donations that were made to the fraudulent campaign 
  • Bobbitt is in jail in Philadelphia and the couple have been bailed to return to court on Christmas Eve

The audacious New Jersey couple and homeless veteran behind a fraudulent GoFundMe campaign which raised $400,000 last year knew each other for a month before they dishonestly claimed to have met for the first time when the veteran used his last $20 to buy her gas, it has been revealed.  

On Thursday, Kate McClure, 28, Mark D'Amico, 39, and Johnny Bobbitt Jr, 34, were all charged with second degree theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception in New Jersey. 

They all now face between five and ten years behind bars. 

McClure and D'Amico were released on bail after turning themselves in and will return to court on December 24.  Bobbitt is still in custody in Philadelphia awaiting extradition to New Jersey.

The couple was not required to pay anything to post bail. Of the $400,000 they raised and $360,000 they netted after GoFundMe fees, there is not a single dollar left.  

GoFundMe has vowed to reimburse the 14,000 people who contributed to the campaign. 

In a bombshell press conference on Thursday, prosecutors said that the trio had actually met a month earlier than was claimed at a casino in Philadelphia which McClure and D'Amico frequented and where Bobbitt was known to hang around outside. 

It is not clear whose idea the GoFundMe campaign was, but prosecutors found a 2012 Facebook post made by Bobbitt in which he claimed to have helped another woman in North Carolina by buying her gas after she too became stranded. There is no trace of it ever happening. 

In November 2017, McClure created the GoFundMe campaign claiming to  have just met Bobbitt and returned to repay him for saving her when she was stranded. An hour later, according to prosecutors, she texted a friend admitting it was a lie.

'OK so wait, the gas part is completely made up but the guy isn't. 

'I had to make something up so people would feel bad so shoosh about the made up stuff,' she said in one of 60,000 text messages that were reviewed as part of the investigation.

The story began to fell apart in August this year after Bobbitt complained to a newspaper that the couple 'stole' the money and left him to return to the streets. 

D'Amico and McClure hit back claiming that he could not be trusted with it because he was a drug addict. 

But their conflicting statements about how much they had and when it was all spent raised red flags.  

Prosecutors then reviewed transactions and found that not only had the couple blown all the money, as has been suspected for months, but their story was fraudulent from the beginning and Bobbitt, who had been seen as their victim, was complicit. 

'The paying it forward story that drove this fundraiser might seem too good to be true. Unfortunately it was. The entire campaign was predicated on a lie.

'She did not run out of gas at an I-95 off ramp and he did not spend his last $20 to help her.

'D'Amico, McClure and Bobbitt conspired to pass off a fake, feel good story that would compel donors to contribute to their cause and it worked in a very big way but it was fictitious and illegal and there are consequences,' Scott Coffina, Burlington County Prosecutor, said at a press conference on Thursday. 

He explained that they met a month earlier.  

 'Johnny Bobbitt used to hang out near an underpass and this off ramp happens to be near a Sugarhouse casino and they frequented it and they ran into him on their trips there, befriended him, gave him $10, some coffee or some food,' Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said. 

McClure and her boyfriend used this photograph to promote their campaign. They said they went back to find Bobbitt to return the money he had given her. An hour after posting it online, McClure texted a friend to say she had 'made up the gas stuff' to 'make people feel bad'

Initially, they set out to raise $10,000 and claimed it would be used to get Bobbitt off the streets. 

WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

TOTAL: $403,000 

GOFUNDME FEES: $40,000

CASINO CASH WITHDRAWALS: $89,000 

CASINO CHARGES: $20,000 +

BOBBITT'S SHARE: $75,000 

REPAYING FAMILY DEBT: $9,000

BMW, LOUIS VUITTON BAGS, VACATIONS, JEWELRY AND MISC SPENDING: $174,000  

REMAINDER: $0 out the donations poured in as the three of them promoted it and soon the total was at $403,000. 

'This was an irresistibly heartwarming tale and the trio's international media blitz to promote the campaign convinced more than 14,000 donors to contribute a total of $403,000 to help Johnny Bobbitt,' Coffina said. 

 McClure and D'Amico were overcome with greed. 

Rather than give Bobbitt even half of the money, they withheld it and spent it on themselves.  

'By his own estimate, Bobbitt received approximately $75,000 of the money. 

'But he wanted his fair share of the take and initiated legal action in August 2018 when his confederates refused to turn it over

'By that point though, the money was long gone,' Coffina said. 

The couple squandered it mostly at casinos but also went on expensive trips, repaid family debt and bought expensive handbags and cars.  

When Bobbitt complained about them in August this year, they insisted they had done no wrong. 

More than 14,000 people donated to the GoFundMe campaign McClure and D'Amico set up as a way to give back to Bobbitt. GoFundMe has vowed to reimburse everyone who gave the campaign money

They even went on Megyn Kelly Today, the now-cancelled NBC morning show, and insisted they were trying to do the right thing. 

D'Amico stated unequivocally that they still had $150,000 of the money and that they had no, as was accused, spent it lavishly on themselves.  

But in a March 2018 text message to her boyfriend, McClure 'lamented that the pair had less than $10,000 remaining but D'Amico wasn't worried,' Coffina said. 

'He was certain that the payday from the book deal he was planning would dwarf the GoFundMe money,' he added. 

The book would be called No Good Deed.  

Of the $400,000 that was donated, the couple was given $360,000 after GoFundMe's fee. 

They gave Bobbitt around $75,000 but blew the rest. 

At least $9,000 was spent on repaying family debt. An astonishing $89,000 was attributed to cash withdrawals in or near casinos.An additional $20,000 was spent on cards in the casinos. 

There were also Louis Vuitton handbags, a BMW and trips including one to to Las Vegas. 

The lie: This was the original post made by McClure on GoFundMe that went round the world

Prosecutors condemned the trio's 'media blitz' which fueled donations. More than 14,000 people contributed to the account from all over the world  

Prosecutors said on Thursday that while they were grateful to Bobbitt for his military service and sympathized with his plight as a homeless drug addict, he was complicit in the lie.  

It is not yet known if they set up terms to dictate who would pocket what when they made up the story. 

What is clear is that Bobbitt got less than he thought he was owed.

When he took action against the couple, he may not have known that all the money was gone, Coffina said.

He also did not understand that bringing their story back into the public eye would put them all at risk of being found out. 

It was their dispute over the money which triggered the investigation, Coffina said.  

Asked if they would have gotten away with it if they had not begun fighting, he said: 'They very well might have.' 

'Johnny Bobbitt deserves our appreciation for his service to our country and our sympathy... but it is imperative to keep in mind that he was fully complicit. 

'He posed in front of a gas station for a photograph that he did not buy gas from,' Coffina said. 

He went on: 'I can't imagine what was in Johnny Bobbitt's mind. 

'Maybe he just didn't appreciate that even the lawsuit would bring out this, he may not have known that all the money was squandered when he brought the lawsuit.

'All three of them had an interest in the story being fake not being revealed.' 

Some of McClure's friends and family pieced together that they had been dishonest, he said, but none are believed to have come forward despite some of them benefiting from it. They do not face charges

In August they  appeared on Megyn Kelly Today claiming they had done nothing wrong and were happy with their version of events. They told the show they had $150,000 left but they in fact only had $10,000

'They became aware over time. It's asking a lot of a mother to come forward and turn in her daughter.

'When the initial distributions were made, D'Amico and McClure did repay some family members money that was owed to them,' he said. The total was $9,000.   

Even as their story started to fall apart earlier this year, McClure and D'Amico tried their luck.

 This type of case can damage the psyche of the public. It can make generous people skeptical and a little more hesitant to help someone else in need.

'Giving him all that money, it's never going to happen. I'll burn it in front of him,' D'Amico said in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer in August. 

During an interview with Megyn Kelly, they said they spent $200,000 on him in total and that $150,000 was left.

In that interview, D'Amico said GoFundMe took $50,000.

They insisted that they had done nothing wrong and had not spent a single dollar on themselves.

When asked for an exact figure of how much was left, they said they could not give one because the money was still being held in the account they used for themselves. 

On Thursday, Coffina said he hoped the shocking story would not stop others from donating to genuine good causes in the future.

'This type of case can damage the psyche of the public. It can make generous people skeptical and a little more hesitant to help someone else in need. 

'I urge you not to let this happen,' he said. 

Prosecutors said they were grateful to Bobbitt for his military service and sympathized with his drug addiction and homelessness. They questioned whether he understood the full extent of the scam but said he was complicit.

The man who has been accused of draining every cent of homeless Good Samaritan veteran Johnny Bobbitt, Jr.'s $400,000 GoFundMe has been arrested on unrelated charges.
Mark D'Amico, 39, of New Jersey was taken into custody on Monday at his residence at 9.20pm for outstanding warrants, Florence Township Police confirmed in a Facebook post, published on Tuesday.
'Mr. D'Amico was processed for the warrants and was transported to Burlington County Jail,' the post read.

'THE OUTSTANDING WARRANTS FOR MR. D'AMICO'S ARREST WERE UNRELATED TO THE GOFUNDME INVESTIGATION.'

D'Amico became part of a viral sensation when Johnny Bobbitt Jr, 34, was shown on camera spending his last $20 to buy gas for Katelyn McClure, D'Amico's girlfriend, after she became stranded on a highway in Philadelphia.

In the wake of the video, D'Amico and 28-year-old receptionist McClure set up the GoFundMe page for Bobbitt, which has since become embroiled in controversy.

No further details were revealed regarding the charges related to D'Amico's arrest.

Meanwhile, Bobbitt, who is originally from North Carolina but had been sleeping rough under the I-95 bridge in north Philadelphia, has gone to rehab to deal with his drug addiction, DailyMailTV can disclose.

He has entered a 30-day residential rehab program. His lawyer, Christopher Fallon Jr, told DailyMailTV on Saturday: 'It is my understanding that our client entered a recovery program yesterday.' 

The move offers some hope for the man who saw a glimpse at a better life, before it was allegedly stolen out from under his feet by D'Amico and McClure. 

Although they had originally set out to raise $10,0000, some 14,000 people were so touched by Bobbitt's kindness that they donated $400,000 to help him start a new life.

The two then set up a GoFundMe page for Bobbitt, which has since become embroiled in controversy as they've been accused on living high on the more than $400,000 donated

The money was supposed to be spent on a home and a truck for Bobbitt, as well as a trust and retirement fund. Bobbitt believes he received about $75,000, including the value of the camper van and truck that the couple bought him but registered in their names.

The couple have shared photos on social media of themselves taking a helicopter ride and a trip to Disney during luxury vacations to Las Vegas and LA. They also posted pictures of shopping sprees and front-row seats at a Broadway show.

They insisted that they had done nothing wrong and had not spent a single dollar on themselves.

D'Amico did admit to spending $500 from the fundraising campaign at SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, though he insists he paid it all back with his winnings.

A complete accounting of where the money has gone is expected after a forensic accountant went through the couple's finances.

Bobbitt's civil case against the couple has been put on hold until December while an investigation into potential criminal proceedings related to the raised money plays out, DailyMailTV learned.

In the civil suit, Bobbitt says they used the account as a 'personal piggy bank' to 'fund a lifestyle they could not otherwise afford'.

Meanwhile, Bobbitt, who is originally from North Carolina but had been sleeping rough under the I-95 bridge in north Philadelphia, has gone to rehab to deal with his drug addiction, DailyMailTV can disclose

During a recent appearance on the Megyn Kelly Today show, D'Amico said there was well over $150,000 left of the donations.

But Bobbitt's attorney said earlier this week that he was told all the money is gone.

Burlington County prosecutor Scott Coffina confirmed in a statement that a criminal investigation was taking place into the couple.

No charges have been filed at this time against the couple related to the GoFundMe investigation. 

D'Amico has said the couple believed Bobbitt shouldn't get the money until he was clean and would spend it responsibly, while the couple have shared photos on social media of themselves taking a helicopter ride and a trip to Disney during luxury vacations to Las Vegas and LA.

He told The Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this month: 'Giving him all that money, it's never going to happen. I'll burn it in front of him.'

In a joint statement issued last Thursday, GoFundMe and the law firm representing Bobbitt said he will get an amount equal to the balance he didn't receive through the fundraiser.

GoFundMe said it gave $20,000 to an account set up by his attorney to help him during the investigation. The company is also taking steps to allow donors who contributed to the campaign to get their money back.

Company policy states that donors have until 30 days of making their contribution to submit claims asking for a refund. But since the campaign took place 10 months ago, GoFundMe is waiving this aspect of its policy to allow donors to Bobbitt to submit claims.

Couple investigated for 'defrauding a homeless veteran of $400,000'

  • Johnny Bobbitt spent his last $20 buying gas for Kate McClure in November
  • McClure set up a GoFundMe page to repay him and strangers gave $400,000

  • McClure insists all of it went on his care and that he spent $25,000 of it on drugs 
  • Bobbit is now suing and police today announced they are investigating couple 
  • They raided their New Jersey home and towed away a recently purchased BMW 
Under investigation: Cops are now investigating Mark D'Amico and Katelyn McClure after they failed to hand over money raised via GoFundMe to a homeless veteran. They raised $400,000 for Johnny Bobbitt after he spent his last $20 on gas for them to get home.

Investigators later left the coupe's home with bags and boxes of material. 

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott A Coffina said in a statement: 'Due to the enormous public interest in this matter, I am confirming that a search warrant was executed early this morning by the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office and the Florence Township Police Department at the residence of Mark D'Amico and Katelyn McClure in connection with a criminal investigation into the Johnny Bobbitt matter.' 

'As of this time, there have been no charges filed. Further updates will be provided as circumstances warrant.'   

It comes less than a week after the couple went on national television to claim there was still 'well over' $150,000  of the raised money left.

They insisted that they have not spent the money on themselves and that they spent $200,000 on care for Bobbitt. Whatever cash they did give him, they said he spent it on drugs.

After Bobbitt shared his story earlier this month, GoFundMe launched an investigation into the couple's handling of the fund.

It seemed Bobbitt had triumphed when a judge earlier this week ordered the couple to give him control of the account.

Now, Bobbitt and his lawyers have asked for a forensic accountant to examine the couple's records and determine if they misspent any of the money.

They met in November 2017 when McClure, a receptionist for the state Department of Transportation, ran out of gas in Philadelphia on her way home.

Nearly 15,000 people donated $402,000 to get Bobbitt off the street after he used his last $20 to buy McClure gas in Philadelphia 

Nearly 15,000 people donated $402,000 to get Bobbitt off the street after he used his last $20 to buy McClure gas in Philadelphia 

Bobbitt was sleeping in the street and he used his last $20 to buy her gas and get her home safely.

She shared his good deed on social media and launched a GoFundMe page in the hope that strangers would return his kindness.

Within a month, McClure and D'Amico had raised $400,000 for Bobbitt and he was excitedly planning a new life. There were promises of trusts and retirement accounts, financial adviser and lawyers, but Bobbitt now says none of what the pair told him he would receive panned out as planned.

Instead of turning over the money to him, they maintained control of it and only once gave him a lump sum of cash.

Rather than buy him a house, they bought him a trailer, which was then kept on land owned by McClure's family. He did not get the pickup truck of his dreams, and instead was given a used SUV, which they have since sold.

McClure and D'Amico insist that he wanted the trailer and car, and that when he blew through $25,000, allegedly on drugs, in just 13 days, they decided he could not be trusted with the rest of the money.

They say that an additional $30,000-$40,000 was eaten up by GoFundMe's fees and that another $135,000 were spent on lawyers, the trailer, an SUV, TVs, a laptop, a cell phone and a hotel where Bobbitt stayed when he first got off the street.

It is not clear what legal services were given before they fell into dispute.

During an interview with Megyn Kelly last week, the couple said they spent $200,000 on him in total and that $150,000 was still left.

In that interview, D'Amico said GoFundMe took $50,000.

They insisted that they had done nothing wrong and had not spent a single dollar on themselves.

When asked for an exact figure of how much was left, they said they could not give one because the money was still being held in the account they used for themselves.

McClure became emotional as she described receiving death threats from people claiming they had misspent the money on trips and shopping sprees.

Since they met Bobbitt, they went on luxurious trips to Las Vegas and Los Angeles. They also got a new car but say they paid for it with their salaries.

Bobbitt is back living on the streets. He is taking drugs again. His attorneys agreed to work for him for free.

In his response to Bobbitt's claims earlier this month, D'Amico told The Philadelphia Inquirer: 'Giving him all that money, it's never going to happen. I'll burn it in front of him.' 

In April, they took Bobbitt to New York City from New Jersey. They were pictured there together smiling happily for photographs. 

D'Amico has been arrested on traffic violations and he has also frequented casinos, once dipping into the GoFundMe money to take $500 which he claims he replaced afterwards. 

In January, the couple went to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon where they enjoyed a $500 per person helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. McClure said it was a gift from D'Amico

In her final upload to the page, McClure said: 'Hopefully this will answer them while keeping his privacy and the privacy of the people he is helping also. 

'The first thing on the list is a NEW Home which Johnny will own!! He will never have to worry about a roof over his head again!! Second will be the dream truck he's always wanted... a 1999 ford ranger (yes I'm serious). 

'There will also be 2 trusts set up in his name, one essentially giving him the ability to collect a small 'salary' each year and another retirement trust which will be wisely invested by a financial planner which he will have access to in a time frame he feels comfortable with so when the time comes he can live his retirement dream of owning a piece of land and a cabin in the country. 

'A bank account will be set up for him with funds for every day needs that will get him through until he finds a job. And lastly, he will be donating to a few organizations and people who over the last couple of years have helped him get through this rough patch in his life.

'This is a well thought out plan that Johnny his lawyer and financial advisor came up with in order to give Johnny the means to acclimate back into a 'normal' life and also to protect him and ensure he has a bright future.' 

Bobbitt said he was never given a lawyer and met once with a financial adviser.  

This is the couple's original plea for donations on GoFundMe. They labeled the page 'pay it forward'
