Couple Accused of Stealing Donations for Homeless Man Will Likely Face Criminal Indictment…

Wow, this is very disappointing.  Last year a woman named Kate McClure posted a GoFundMe campaign for a homeless man named Johnny Bobbit after he gave her his last $20 for gas in her car.  Mrs. McClure raised over $400,000 for Mr. Bobbit.

After Mr. Bobbit didn’t receive much of the the money he found an attorney to file a civil lawsuit.  Last week the police showed up with a search warrant at the home of Katie McClure & Mark D’Amico and removed a BMW automobile, several Louis Vuitton bags, jewelry, computers and financial records.

Today attorneys for Mrs. McClure and Mr. D’Amico dropped their client, and in a court filing stated the attorneys believe the couple will likely be indicted for fraud.

NEW YORK – […] Ernest Badway, the lawyer for defendants Kate McClure and Mark D’Amico, asked a Burlington County judge Friday to postpone veteran Johnny Bobbitt’s civil case against them while they’re investigated criminally for possible misuse of the $400,000 donated to Bobbitt last year, the filing shows.

“Since it is expected that one or both of the Defendants will likely be indicted, my firm and I will no longer be able to continue our representation of them in this matter,” Badway wrote in the motion for a stay in the case, which was granted Monday, moving the next proceeding to Dec. 7.

[…]  Bobbitt recently claimed the couple cut him off and refused to give him the remaining money. His lawyers told The Post they blew the cash on lavish shopping sprees, where they purchased Chanel sunglasses, a new iPhone and a collection of Nikes.

The couple originally said there was $150,000 left of the money and they were withholding it because they were concerned Bobbitt would blow the cash on drugs. When Bobbitt filed suit against the couple in August, a judge ordered the couple to turn over what was left of the money but by then, Badway told Bobbitt’s attorneys nothing was left of the $400,000.

    If proven to have spent the money on themselves, their assets should be seized, sold for whatever they re worth, and the monies given to Mr. Bobbit. THEN throw the two degenerates in prison for a few years, to learn how the “other half” live…..

    • Surprised? Shouldn’t be….her management skills were on display when she ran out of gas without money or credit cards.
      If you can’t manage little things, you can’t manage the big things, prof is how they squandered the go-fund-me account.
      They spent the money like poor people …..all of it was on high priced deprecating assets.

      So if I am understanding the story correctly….she gets rescued by a homeless guy for $20 bucks.
      Then gets blown away by the charity of others and needs to intervene to manage a half-a-million so the homes guy doesn’t destroy his life.
      But instead greed takes over and they destroy theirs.
      Again …if you can’t be trusted with the small stuff you can’t be trusted with big things.

      That’s why lottery winners often die broke. What a shame.

        Yep, they spent ALL the money. And they spent it on stupid crap. I was going to feel a little sympathy for people caught up in something they didn’t expect, but now that i know they simply blew it ALL …

      When I first caught a glance of this story a couple weeks ago, I saw “Johnny Bobbitt,” and wondered what the heck kind of trouble he had got himself into THIS time – 🙂 Then I realized it was a different Bobbitt!

    When you are young, people say ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. When you get a couple of years under your belt go ahead and judge by first impression, probably right. Look at that husband, wouldn’t trust him with anything.

    It is very unlikely this vet asked them to do this…so either greed consumed them after they sae the donations rolling in or they plotted thinking they would give him part and keep the rest and he would not know or question or pursue….. greed is a very ugly thing…..

  16. I’m trying to work up some hope that this story will become a cautionary tale.

    Not that those with a heart to give need should suppress their impulse to care about strangers, or even fail to give in kindness to others that may in fact be scoundrels.

    Rather that those of us who have a kind heart would recognize our need for Heavenly wisdom when considering whether to exercise our compassion towards the scoundrels and the rascals in our world.

    I mean this.
    GOD ONLY knows.

    May we grow in discernment.
    Not only to recognize scoundrels.

    But to recognize the Voice of our Savior
    saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it.”

    Does anyone have any information on how the account was set up and word-ed to pull off this scam? Did the couple claim all of the money was going to Bobbit or was it one of those “portions of the proceeds will go to help Bobbit” where “portion” is very vague or loosely defined to imply its all going to Bobbit?
