Good Samaritan Con Artists: “charged with theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception”…

The latest development in this ongoing saga is just stunning. Charges have been brought against a New Jersey couple and a “not-homeless man” allegedly involved in charitable scam.  Prosecutors now say it was a complete con; a manufactured story they created; they made it all up and bilked the kind hearts of people for over $400,000.  They were arrested:

(Via Associated Press) Authorities say a New Jersey couple and a homeless man made up a “feel good” story about the man helping them so they could raise money through an online fundraiser.

Burlington County prosecutors outlined the allegations against Mark D’Amico, Katelyn McClure and Johnny Bobbitt on Thursday. All three are charged with theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception.

The couple has claimed they set up a GoFundMe page for Bobbitt after he helped McClure get gas when she became stranded in Philadelphia last year. But prosecutors say they found evidence all three knew each other for at least a month before and set up the scheme.

D’Amico and McClure surrendered Wednesday night. Their attorney said they have no comment. Bobbitt is jailed in Philadelphia. A previous lawyer of his didn’t return a call seeking comment. (read more)

          In general I am opposed to the whole “go fund me” scam EXCEPT when it benefits someone I know who absolutely has a good reason to need the charity. I get solicitations for “go fund me” money pretty much every day on Facebook, and being something of a skeptic I pretty much ignore them. A recent one was from someone I actually knew. Her sister (a lifelong drug addict and convicted felon) died, and the children, my friend’s niece and nephew, threw a big, expensive funeral for her. Afterward they set up a “gofundme” page trying to raise $25,000 to pay themselves (and my friend) back for the money they fronted for this expense. Initially I ignored the requests, but then my friend got more and more insistant even calling me out on Facebook because I had not contributed. After a week or so her husband made a “collection call” to my husband to bring to his attention the fact that we had not sent them any money. It was outrageous! Since she was the one who chose Facebook as a venue to embarrass people who would not cough up the funds, I decided to post a message back to her that people should not throw parties they cannot afford. They could have had this degenerate woman cremated for about $1,000.00. They did not need to throw a big funeral, spending money they did not have to honor someone in death who never earned the honor in life. We are no longer friends, but apparently this ridiculous campaign got them most of what they wanted.

        Americans have long be advised to not hand out money to people but donate to places that are viable like The Union Mission, The Salvation Army, a church or any other reputable place. But, funding people who make up sad stories is just nuts. For Pete’s sake, P.T. Barnum was right. My version is that there are fools born everyday….maybe one every 10 minutes.

        Whatever happened to opening an account at the bank and people sending donations to the bank. At least that way, there is some oversight.

        GFM is nothing more than a con game and yes, it has liberal Democrat overtones because they haven’t been shut down. I now only use the internet like I would a set of encyclopedias….I look up information. I may occasionally order from a company but Amazon is not on my list.

          I recently used Amazon’s search to find the name of the company here in the US that makes the Christmas window battery candles I have been buying for years (so much better and more durable than the Chinese junk ones). Found a few replacements on ebay using the company name.

But with all of the concessions that organization has made the last several years, they no longer receive anything from me. They sold out, and for what. That once phenomenal organization has destroyed their brand.

                I earned the rank of Eagle, as did my brother and my son; I also served as a Scoutmaster for six years while my son was a scout.

      I’m guessing the one who thought this all up is the chick and she’s also the one who is rolling on the guys. There is a prejudice in sentencing for women. They will always get a lighter sentence than a man for the same crime. Part of that is because they rat out everyone else.

      It’s just their nature. Sorry ladies, until you’ve been threatened with 10-15 years in the pen, you won’t understand why that’s true. The real bitches who don’t roll don’t care cause of where they’re at. The white girls from princess land can’t stand the idea of being locked up for YEARS. And they already probably blame the man for them getting caught so they roll right over.

      pro tip for men: never involve women in a crime. They will tell others about it, they will roll on you when you get caught. And then divorce you and take all of what money/property you have left.

      I know that’s terrible but this is from observation not personal experience.

      two can keep a secret if one of them is dead. Is a good rule of thumb.

      Beware of local charities as well. Many are not what they seem. Many churches are also sending money to immigrant swarms in Europe and are backing the caravan coming through Mexico.

      The worst charity in my opinion is United Way. They give millions to planned parenthood. Most of the money they hand out goes to foreign organizations. Who they are is somewhat of a mystery.

      My guess is that a lot of money from United Way is going overseas to Marxists. Read this article. Look how much the CEO takes home a year. Remember this, where there is money there is always corruption.

A lot of stuff goes through Goodwill and very seldom will you see expensive donated items at a fair price, if at all. They have what they call a Goodwill Showroom in some areas and the prices they tag on stuff is higher than Home Goods, Dillards, and most department stores, from which they receive many donations. I laugh, it’s pathetic. The executive owners at the larger companies made per the internet $789,000 to $12.9M last year. Employees make minimum wage and work their hind ends off. I would give to Salvation Army, Once in a while I will buy a piece of wood furniture to paint or refurbish at Goodwill. Salvation Army is my go just because the money goes where it is suppose to, programs that help and the top Commissioner nationally only makes $13,000 per year.

                When Idaho had severe forest fires, local organizations went all out to help the people most affected by them. The Red Cross came in at the tail of the crisis and sent out their own appeals for donations. I think they kept it all but at least didn’t help much. But it was a great photo op or two for them. There were so many donations before the Red Cross “helped”, that the local organizations actually sent notice that they couldn’t take any more donated goods! People really come through to help their neighbors, and that’s how it should be…with personal involvement instead of just sending money to places that may not spend it wisely.

                I had heard about the Red Cross before but saw it with my own eyes with the fires. They are also not very effective and about 70% of their donations go toward “Administrative Costs”! You can look this up, charity organizations have to reveal this information. The same is true for the United Way.

                I think most of the children’s hospitals are good. But look all of them up on the web first.

    What angers me the most about this is that there are homeless people out there, struggling and dying, and this will make anyone who can help them that much less likely to.

    There was a couple, lived under a viaduct a few miles away from us. Used to see them up there, sleeping and eating (occasionally) and sometimes begging at the intersection a few yards away. Had health problems (obviously, no one will insure the homeless.) Once watched the man help the woman up from where she was sitting, helped my own mother up often enough to recognize knee problems. They just stood a moment and hugged.

    Went up to where they slept, once, to leave a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread. It was terrible. A few blankets, what looked like the lining of someone’s trunk, lots of flies, an empty pizza box from the Little Caeser’s down the street, a devotional. That was it. Not sure where they were that day. Did that on the way to work. On the way back, looked up and got to see them eating sandwiches. Was the only one of us working at the time and could barely afford our own bills but I don’t regret it.

    Husband came to get me from work one night (only have the one car,) told me he’d seen the police making the couple leave. Haven’t seen them since. No idea what happened to them. Probably dead.

    Saw a homeless man once on our way to the local Holiday Festival of Lights (last winter, actually.) Trying to sell bundles of mistletoe, on a Saturday night. Traffic was backed up probably three miles, barely moving. Had a cardboard sheet he was selling them off of. We were the only ones, out of probably a thousand people that night, that bought any.

    Makes me want to spit. So many now will suffer that otherwise may not have. Having “been there, done that” myself with homelessness, it’s one of my soapboxes. My mother only just got into a place. They kicked her out of the hospital right after a stroke into homelessness in the winter. So many suffer. So many die, of exposure, health problems, simple hunger. And because of shit like this, anyone who might help now won’t.

    I have given to a few legitimate Go Fund Me pages, such as the one for the Mayor with 7 kids who was recently killed in Afghanistan, but I stay away from anything not easily verified by news sources. But I’d like to point out that it is now possible to give money on Go Fund Me without giving anything to the website itself. It shows suggested amounts to help them cover their administrative fees, but you can change that number to 0 and all the money you give will go to the individual cause, and nothing to the site. So even if you hate Go Fund Me, as I do, for having discriminated against conservatives in the past, you can give money there without helping them.

      Media blitz
      In numerous media appearances, McClure claimed she was driving to meet a friend in September 2017 when she ran out of gas around midnight on the I-95 exit ramp near Philadelphia and Bobbitt, who was sleeping under a nearby overpass, came to her rescue. She claimed Bobbitt spent his last $20 to buy her gas.

      “I pulled over to the side of the road as far as I could and I was going to get out and walk to the nearest gas station because it was not that far away, and that’s when I met Johnny,” McClure said last November in a “Good Morning America” interview. “He walked up and he said, ‘Get back in the car. Lock the doors. I’ll be back.’ I was just like, ‘OK.'”

          Charlie Guard’s story and all the ones like it (someone just tweeted about another child who died of cancer in his mother’s arms, apologizing to her for dying which has me bawling as I write) are what honestly makes me question if there’s a God. No one can be 100% sure of what the afterlife is like until we’re actually there, so maybe there’s some purpose to dead kids and the unending pain their families endure, but I honestly have never heard a good explanation even imagined for this.

    Donor beware.

    People hate to have their sympathy suckered. So, when they do get their sympathy suckered, they want revenge. Talk about turning on a dime …… you can have my sympathy, but don’t be messing with my money …… or something.

    Me? I don’t throw money in the pot unless I know the facts. The homeless guy, supposedly did an admirable thing and somehow that caused total strangers to leap on the sucker train for a feel-good ride to nowhere. Nobody promised anybody that there was something in it for them by donating. I don’t approve of scams, but what is 90% of Washington D.C. doing with the money they tax out of us on the threat of imprisonment? So, this trio sucked a bunch of people and now those people want to make those scam artists turn the money over to lawyers because ………?

    If folks haven’t learned by now that giving your money to a stranger, any middleman, is not wise, then you have made yourself a target. We are responsible for our actions.

    This story is nothing more than the recent scam scheme. I find the entire concept of Go Fund Me fraught with issues. If there is a need that seems worthy, make contact with the “beneficiary”, get an address and make your contribution to the one in need. It really is that simple and if you cannot do that, close your wallet. Sheesh

    Cannot believe how gullible, naive and irresponsibly trusting so many people are today. Our knee jerk reaction seems to be throw money instead of some critical thinking. Explains a lot about the state of our Republic.

    “A fool and his money are soon parted” It is upon us to cut the money flow to “Go Fraud Me”.

    I hope these scammers are put away. Look at the comments here, everyone saying why you should not give to charities. There are so many good charities working on a shoe-string and they are really hurt by this kind of talk. “Don’t give”.

    I say Do give. Thinking all charities are bad because of a few bad apples is like saying you should never walk down the street because someone might grab your purse. Hey, it happens every day.

    It’s a real charity if they have real people that they are helping. Look at results.

  43. Research the organizations you give to. I used to donate to the Wounded Warriors project. I think it was back in June 2014, my wife and I stayed at the Del Coronado in San Diego. The rooms there at that time started at $600 a night. And guess who was holding their annual meeting or whatever there? They were there for the entire 4 days and 5 nights we were there. That ended my donations to them on the spot. Now I limit it to the Salvation Army and Samaritans Purse.
