Kate McClure and Johnny Bobbitt

A Philadelphia homeless veteran will never see the rest of the $400,000 raised for him by a woman who created a GoFundMe account to repay him for loaning her his last $20 when her car ran out of gas last October.

A lawyer representing Johnny Bobbitt says Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico depleted the $400,000 and there is nothing left.

Attorney Chris Fallon said the news of the empty bank account "came as a complete surprise" to him.

Last week, Superior Court Judge Paula T. Dow ordered McClure and D'Amico to hand over nearly $200,000 to an escrow account.

In addition, the judge ordered the couple to provide forensic accounting explaining what happened to the rest of the funds.

But Fallon said he learned the money was gone after a conference call with McClure, D'Amico and their attorneys.

"It completely shocked me when I heard," Fallon told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Bobbitt is being represented by three lawyers pro bono (free of charge). The lawyers asked the court to order the couple to remain in New Jersey, surrender their passports, post a bond and restrict their access to bank accounts after they failed to meet the court order to wire the money to an account controlled by Bobbitt's lawyers.

Fallon said Bobbitt has received nearly $75,000 in the form of an old camper and his dream car, a 1999 Ford Ranger.

Bobbitt lived in the camper until June and the car broke down on him.

Bobbitt told ABC News the couple also gave him $25,000 in cash. He lent some of the cash to his family and friends to help them out. He admits he spent the rest on drugs. He failed two attempts at drug rehab and was back on the streets in July.

Bobbitt's lawyers say McClure and D'Amico used some of Bobbitt's money to buy a new BMW. But they previously claimed they used their own money to buy the high end vehicle.

McClure and D'Amico also took lavish vacations and displayed expensive brand name items in photos on their Instagram.com page.

The couple's lawyers reportedly refused to respond to Bobbitt's lawyers' requests to explain why they never wired the money or if they moved the bank account.

According to Fox News, GoFundMe has launched its own investigation into the missing funds.

GoFundMe also donated $20,000 into an escrow account created by Bobbitt’s attorneys to help pay his living expenses.

A hearing regarding the missing funds is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 10 a.m.

    Send their azzes to jail. Put a lien on their property. Cocksuckers.

  • SpiceGirl

    The judge orderd them to give him the REST of the money that is left.....IMHO....they should have to pay ALL the money that was raised for HIM!

  • Dowoop

    Doesnt sound like any of them should have had that money.

  • iWasteTime

    They need to payback everyone who gave.
    When you read how much they got for him, vs. what they gave or purchased for him vs. what they did for themselves ... smh. The homeless man has a trail of what he did with the initial payment including his vice but these folks stole 300K from this man.
    Also JAIL! both of them in it or under it ...

  • TMW

    The fact that he had to loan her $20...didn’t bode well for her/them doing the right thing with the money. I truly believe 90% of GoFundMe accounts are scams just like this. There should be a way that if someone is raising money for someone else, that it goes directly to them or their estate.

  • Trace da Ace

    damn...didnt Sandy already posted on this a few days back...or an I going crazy?? I feel like I have seen this story somewhere before....recently.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Agreed

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah. At the time, the belief was that they still had some of the money.

  • Renee26

    Duh

  • ShelbyMoore

    The difference is, now it's being confirmed that they stole that homeless man's money. Hopefully everyone that placed money into the Go Fund Me sues their asess.

  • iWasteTime

    yeah and folk thought they had about 200K left.
    Nope, they spent it all

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    My ? is, IS ANYBODY SURPRISED? IM NOT........biggest cheats in the mf world.................

  • Renee26

    I vote for under the jail

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Also, when was the money raised? Did they blow through 300k in less than a year?

    But black people are the ONLY ones that are fiscally irresponsible.

  • ShelbyMoore

    That shat runs deep in the Colonizers' veins.

  • dru and neil

    I think GoFundMe needs to sue them as well, make an example of them before cases like this mess it up for all the legitimate cases of those in serious need.

  • Renee26

    Right.... Sell all that ish

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    You can tell Mr. Bobbitt has a kind heart he always giving ppl his last... they did him super dirty smh he should have been in the best rehab center to get him cleaned up and put his money in a bank account for him that was monitored etc humans I tell ya

  • FukkFolks2018

    Ummm who thought they still had that money? Anyone? Who?

  • Coy little wink

    Scamming is the new norm huh

  • Malcom Flex

    SCAM from jump street watch and see the couple are druggies, too!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I hope they take them down for this. The only reason it's not moving fast is because they are white. Had it been black they would be sitting in jail right now until they found out where the money is

  • dru and neil

    Yes! He was honest about his spending but those two deceitful dogs can’t come clean about what they did with the money. Why do I have a feeling that 1999 Ford Ranger wasn’t his “dream ride” and simply what those cheap bastards handed him. They could have got him a new Ford F150 at a reasonable price.

  • Malcom Flex

    What do we have to do with white trash just wondering??

  • davine puddin

    Thats why her can ran out of gas and she didnt have 20 dollars on hand for emergencies. She proved she could not handle money. I am bad with money. I lack discipline along with compulsive tendencies. The only 2 people i trust to look after my welfare is my daughter grandmother from my ex and my current husband. I have that written in my diary to.

  • dru and neil

    For them to f*ck up that many commas in such a short period of time hell yes they are on drugs.

  • Malcom Flex

    That and GAMBLING.

  • TriniHarlem
  • Malcom Flex

    Who is this obese chick? I see this gif all over...

  • dru and neil

    Yes to rehab, even if it failed several times that’s fine we can’t expect a miraculous change over night. The money should have been available for him to continue to try. People donated specifically to help this homeless man not furnish a lavish lifestyle for these two lying dogs.

  • Dun Dilly

    Ask the HAITIANS what the CLINTONS did with those hundreds of millions they raise for them. Don't hate the playas, hate the game.

  • Logan Roberts

    This couple need to pay Johnny the rest of his money, they need court ordered money management classes & do a 1000 hours of community service working with homeless people. Johnny needs rehab, a trust fund set up for him and also money management & life skills classes.

  • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

    I had to read that twice in the article. You mean HE, the homeless man, had to loan HER $20 for gas but SHE had a gofundme up for HIM? Sounds like a swindle waiting to happen. LOL

  • ShelbyMoore

    I think it's Tanisha, ain't it?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Tiff J

    Why does the couple need money management classes? They need a class in how NOT to steal money that wasn't raised for you. LOL

  • MookieFly

    That's a lot of money with nothing to show for it. What the hell did they spend it on?? Rats

  • Soda

    Looks like she took him to Sears Portrait Studios to forever have a picture of the man she swindled.

  • Tiff J

    Yes, the homeless man gave/lent the woman his last so she could have gas. I guess in an attempt to show her gratitude :sideye: she set up the GoFundMe. Probably didn't think they'd raise that amount of money.... so they got greedy and spent the majority of the money on themselves.

  • hi-liter

    She may have started with good intentions, not thinking they would raise that much money. Once her and the BF started dipping in that money, that's all she wrote.

    Also, I think its way to easy to do these GO Fund Me things. Its too easy for the people who start them to steal, esp. from a vulnerable person.

  • Indies beauty

    I don't think they spent all of it. They have some change somewhere.

  • Guest

    Sorry, she looks shady!

  • TriniHarlem

    Yes. His description of her made me mute ? I don't do that to us even if I'm thinking of it. I respect us more than anything but anyway ? lol

  • TriniHarlem

    Chile idgaf bout these people self inflicted problems.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    I smelled a scam from the moment the story broke.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thats what I was thinking...they all are crackheads (In my Judge Mathis voice)...

  • Tiff J

    I'd like to THINK there are still good people in the world, but alas, humanity fails me again.

  • PhillyFacts

    When their attorney started talking about they brought him an RV, and a truck that was in the boyfriends name I smelled poop...

  • LYRICS

    I knew along they didn't have isht!!!!!!

  • Ni Ni

    Garnish their wages and make them sell some of that ish they bought with that mans money.

  • Rayne

    Jail time. 20 years a piece.

  • WhoKnew

    Tell us something we did not know. It was clear they spent the money. Stealing four hundred grand sounds like jail time to me.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Typical..I see nothing saying they are low-life opportunist who preyed on the heart of American people who don't like to see their vets in the streets..let me see...where did I put my brush for this white wash... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9eb2b76e506e38d5072dd1cf3ad262774eb5ffcb7856de93eefa3205f33fbcb1.gif

  • PhillyFacts

    Yessss where's the REPO man take their homes, cars, etc....

  • datjerk

    They hid the rest.

  • the guest

    They have to go to jail and liquidate all of their possessions to repay him. They are criminals, period.

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah that is Tanisha off of Bad Girls Club...

  • PhillyFacts

    My co-worker is over here HOTTTT she's prejudice to the bone always talking about "I can't be a racist because I hate everyone the same" bish please. She had a million things to say about how wrong it was for Ryan Pownall (a white cop) to be arrested for murdering a fleeing brother. Now she's pissed because I keep rubbing it in how f'd up these folks are to rob a veteran cthu; an older sister who's cubicle is behind mine keeps yelling ish ("you know they're on dope, they're trash" etc) this tub-a-lard is on fire. cthu

  • nick c

    His lawyer should get a judgment on everything they own for life until its all paid back.

  • Trace da Ace

    ohhh....cause chile'....I was having deja vue like a mo fo..lol...but yeah that straight spent that money.....if they were smart they would have left the country....but nope stupid ass trailer trashers.....

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao #truth

    but they always try to make us black folks out to be the scammers and thieves...smdh

  • Alextra Ballard

    What a despicable act . D Amico stated that he would ratha burn the money than turn it over to Bobbit....The money is being moved.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Smh... So what let him spend his money the way he wants. This couple is just as irresponsible as he is.

  • therealkym

    One word...Scandalous!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    In my mind, this is embezzlement, plain and simple. Throw them in jail already. If this was Tyrone & Shaquanda Jackson, they would have been in jail already.

  • Evillene

    Unclear about criminal charges. It was not his money. The couple raised the money for him but it was in their custody and possession. People who donated believed they were helping the man but there was no guarantee that he would receive it. They are immoral pieces of sh*t but that is not a crime.

    Maybe raising money under false pretenses. Not sure if they can be charged with theft or conversion.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They spend hundreds of thousands of dollars that dont belong to them (i.e. "stealing") and they should do community service? You've got to be joking.
    Go ahead and steal that kind of money out of Uncle Jimmy's retirement account and see if the judge gives you community service.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Basically. The original goal was $10k, but once the media got ahold of the story and it went viral, they blew past that amount pretty quickly and raised over $400k.
    Then apparently their eyes got big once they saw that money, and now we see the rest of the story.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Theft by deception is a real charge. They defrauded thousands of people.

  • Ghost

    This is EXACTLY why I don't donate to GOFund me request! I don't care what the situation is...They should be ordered to sell the BMW and any other LUXURY items they bought...smh

  • TheOwley

    It's Grand Larceny: Misdemeanor and 18 months in NJ or 2nd or 3rd degree felonies with up to 10 years in prison. Why haven't they been arrested. They should confiscate every item they purchased and turn it over to the vet.
    GoFundMe better take care of the flaws in their system or it will cease to exist. Money should go straight into an escrow account set up by GFM and no money should go to anyone raising it on behalf of others. That escrow account should have should have all kinds of stipulation including verified notes from physicians, etc. or they are toast.

  • TheOwley

    Actually no need for them to do anything. The couple be arrested and all those items should be immediately confiscated and sold at auction or money returned is seller is willing. All the proceeds should go to the vet.

  • Tammie Reed

    Damn shame

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    I think the couple and the homeless guy all know each other. The couple contrived the “last $20” story and told the homeless guy they would split whatever donations they got. And then...

  • Carrington

    It absolutely WAS his money. They raised that money on his behalf. That's like your child being sick and someone exploiting your kid by saying, "Donate to help this poor, sick baby..." and, people - out of empathy for your family's situation give a million dollars... to an "agent" who was collecting on your behalf... and then they decide, "Oh... I thought we might get two or three hundred, but a MILLION?!? F*ck that family and that baby. Here's $20K... get well soon." That's not how the law works. That's not how ANY of this works.

  • Carrington

    I should've just "liked" your comment. didn't see it. LOL

  • LongDick1

    Theft by deception.

  • Strappyheels

    Just pure unadulterated evil!!!

  • none yubiz

    Chile...on every one of the NJ online news articles folks were saying since DAY ONE that this was a scam concocted by all three of them. Think it went sour when they actually saw how much they got and didnt wanna split it evenly no mo...There was a hearing in Jersey and the judge told the couple's defense attorney that the records she reviewed are not clear and cited concerns with them not appearing for the SECOND time in court. The defenese attorney admitted he did not have "up to date information" from his clients and told the judge that these crackers talking about they exercising their 5th Amendment right....effin dummies...she made it very clear that the couple is to appear this Friday in court. I'm watching this shit like food warming up in the microwave ya'll....

  • none yubiz

    FACTS!!

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    Hun-T the food in the microwave part.??? yessss

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    There are still good people it’s just that...
    No never mind ???

  • none yubiz

    DING DING DING!! Cuz aint no way in hell. But I should add, especially in Jersey, the prosectors are gonna take their time with this one because it's got such national attention they don't wanna botch the job. They wanna be sure that the crime aligns with the evidence and charges. There was a woman here a couple years ago that hit and killed a man driving drunk and Lord she beat the case because the charges did not correspond to the evidence. And apparently the officers on the scene were close friends with the victim and apparently botched the preservation of evidence due to being very emotional. Only wypipo get that lucky...

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    boom CHICKA BOOM!! Ain’t it the same thing on different levels? Shit is deep when you think critically about it.

  • none yubiz

    No the homeless dude legit said himself that the 99 Ford Ranger was his dream truck...they bought him some punk ass Ford Explorer or something and put it in the girls name-- that car broke down months later and then was sold by the BF. I always found that part odd considering they said he had no credentials to get an account in his name yet bought a truck for him to drive--with no license?

  • Yardgirl

    Yep, that was old Tanish but hunty new Tanisha lost all that weight and looks goodt!!

    Saw this story on the news this morning. This is why I’m leery abt crowdfunding, etc. like, will my money get into the right hands?

    Here, this man giving this woman his last dollars not expecting anything in return. Pretty bad, I’d say and best believe karma can be a b-I-t-c-h.

  • JENNYJONES1

    HMM WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAMPER??? AND WHY DID HE LIVE THERE ONLY UNTIL JUNE IF IT WAS SUPPOSEDLY BOUGHT FOR HIM?.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    THEIR LAWYERS PROBABLY TOOK TITLE TO PAY FOR THEIR SERVICES. THE LAWYERS ALWAYS GET THEIR MONEY. LOL!!!!.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • none yubiz

    LOL..will do. Also wanted to mention that I've seen the homeless guy in countless interviews from the moment he started complaining about not getting the money and since this lawsuit broke and I just get Nigerian scam vibes from him as well. Should he get the money? Well, yes because it was raised for him specifically but there is definitely more that occurred here that both sides are not saying.

  • JENNYJONES1

    SORRY BUT THEIR ASSES ARE GOING TO JAIL AND WILL END UP HOMELESS JUST LIKE HIM. KARMA!!!..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Pnthr

    Sounds about white. How tf did they spend $400,000 that quick?

  • Yardgirl

    I did not even THINK he could have been in on it but I am feeling ya on this!! It would be the epitome of white scamming!! Like the new trend of "homeless" white men waiting at stop lights with signs begging for money. Here in CT it has become big business and I hear they are making good money!! My BFF cracked me up when he said "how they gone fumble that white privilege bag?" and he is right, FOH!!

  • dontgetblocked

    White people problems. Let them sort it out. $400,000 would never have been donated to a black, drug-addicted homeless man.

  • dru and neil

    Okay, so this is just what I would have done and I think most decent folks would have done the same; let him know that his “dream ride” is unreliable at this point and we want to see you in something that is going to last you a good while, so let’s look for something new. But they were probably jumping for joy when he said he wanted that old ass 19 year old bucket, because that’s more cash for them to keep.
    I’d be surprised if they paid $5000 bucks for it.

  • Malai

    If they were genuinely interested in giving back to the vet, they would’ve STOPPED the donations once it reached the goal of $5,000 that they had initially set... yet ?SOMEHOW they went over $395,000?? ? and how is it that the wife needed to borrow money from this man in the first place yet she miraculously had enough money to go out and buy a BMW... shit don’t add up, son!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

  • Ozad

    he don't need all that money he a drug addict who will OD with all that money.....he need structured payments

    Buying all the shiny things their entitled arses never should have had bc their work ethic sucked.

  • Allihave2say

    The Red Cross took in $500 Million for Hurricane Harvey release. To this day people are still struggling to get their homes repaired. Sponsorship of hotels and food has been terminated leaving people homeless when they could have had leases paid for one year or more on the money donated. The RC threw away hundreds of blankets and items that could have been used to help the victims in Florida or stored for future use because they knew they'd get new donations for FL. The RC discarded 500 pounds of new dog food after HH. People get keeping but only the charities are receiving.

  • Jussjess25

    Okay so why in the world should a homeless crackhead be giving 400,000 dollars?? Like seriously. He wouldve smoked that money up smh atleast the spent it normally

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Allihave2say

    They should be charged with fraud.

  • Jussjess25

    Those are the facts!! And them white peolple will never have to repay that money ?

  • Jussjess25

    Karma? What karma.. I blame the dummies who donated in the first place. You know how many resources their are for homless single individuals. Please that money could have gone to cancer research or something ??

  • Jussjess25

    Whats that mean? Took title? Seriously asking

  • Jussjess25

    Facts!! ????

  • TheOwley

    Mismanagement and abuse of funds. Wholesale larceny. That other foundation run by the political couple also kept funds. No one is accounting for the money. Haiti exposed them for their untrustworthiness. GFM will have to re-invent itself.

  • ramosyo

    Reminds me so much of the boy Junior who was killed in nyc. That family deserved all the money donated. I’m pissed bc I donated $400 of MY money ! I started to follow the sister on Instagram and do u know EVERYTHING WAS DONATED??!!! They have new jobs, new cars... I mean just mourn.. stop begging for money!!!!!The funeral .. headstone... burial... plus She opened a PO BOX TO SEND GIFTS AND MONEY?? DO U KNOW THAT GO FUND ME IS STILL OPEN?? He was buried in JUNE! Why do people use a tragedy to continue to prosper????? They lied and said this grand mausoleum was being built . Lies! Smh . SAY SOMETHING AUNTIE.

  • Shamwow

    Maybe but we would never know they had no intention of helping him. They probably said the same thing, that is why they got him a raggedy car and tv. I would’ve purchased him a brand new truck and new RV. He would’ve had a better start at rehabilitation. Thing is if you become homeless again after being “helped” it makes people relapse.

  • Shamwow

    Autocorrect is hating on my post. RV he received a shyt car and rv.

  • Shamwow

    That’s why the piece of junk broke down it was crappy just like the truck. He should’ve gotten those items brand new.

  • Shamwow

    Sneaky asses. They’re usually behind most of the shady shyt that goes on in the world.

  • Yui

    Karma as in lies will catch up to the couple who basically committed fraud.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Look.I'm pretty sure they have a house, so it needs to be taken from them, sold, and the proceeds given to the homeless man. Why is this any different than anyone else who owes a debt? I don't believe they spent all the $. I think they just moved it somewhere.The BMW keeps getting mentioned. Take that, sell it, and give the man his money. Are these people going to be allowed to live in the house the homeless man bought them, and drive the BMW he bought them? Make them sell everything they have and give it to the homeless man. "We spent it all" shouldn't be the end of it. They should also go to jail.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Cancer Research? LOL. They have the cure for Cancer, but Cancer treatments bring in big $$$, so they'll never "find a cure". I don't donate to anything cancer related, and my Grandmother died from Cancer, or the Chemo.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I remember that and people were trying to say it was fake. I don't donate to the Red Cross. I just found out recently that when Military Members have to leave suddenly when someone in their family passes and the Red Cross helps them get their plane ticket and everything, Red Cross makes them pay everything back. If you needed assistance from Red Cross, how th are you going to be able to pay it back?

  • Miss Thang

    I'm not donating to any damn body on social media. I got enough broke people in my own family that I need to help.

  • Allihave2say

    They were giving a bags of skittles and pudding as meals to people living in shelters and hotels. So many people to this day remain displaced from Harvey they lost their homes, cars and jobs as a result of the disaster. The Red Cross could have done more for people. Red Cross and Susan G Coleman are both money grabbing frauds.
