Police raid New Jersey home

Police raided the home of a New Jersey couple who apparently defrauded a homeless veteran out of $400,000 in public donations to a GoFundMe account. News footage from the scene outside the Bordertown home of Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico shows a tow truck hauling away a brand new black BMW.

The raid occurred one day after McClure and D'Amico failed to show up at a court hearing to explain what they did with the cash.

Superior Court Judge Paula Dow ordered the couple to appear for a deposition on Monday, Sept. 10, to explain what they did with the money.

A lawyer who appeared in court on Wednesday to represent McClure claimed he did not receive enough information to explain what happened to the money.

The ordeal began last October when Johnny Bobbitt, center, gave his last $20 to McClure after her car ran out of gas and she was stranded.

McClure and D'Amico repaid Bobbit's generosity by creating a GoFundMe account with the original stated goal of $10,000. But news coverage of the story went viral and the donations swelled to over $400,000.

The couple is accused of raiding the account and spending most of the donations to enrich their lifestyles.

GoFundMe is reportedly investigating the theft. The crowdfunding website donated $20,000 into an escrow account created by Bobbitt's lawyers to help pay his living expenses.

    let's all watch how the CAUCASIAN MEDIA try to spin this hot mess and make the low down dirty couple look INNOCENT.....If this LOW DOWN DIRTY couple was BLACK......they would ALREADY BE IN JAIL and CALLED EVERY NAME IN THE BOOK, WITH THEIR PICTURE POSTED EVERYWHERE!

  • RaginB

    They didn’t even bother to show up to court?

  • sunni_daze

    Theives

  • Coy little wink

    I read gofundme placed 200k of their own in escrow for bobbitt...obviously this makes gofundme look bad like wtf. If it was his money why did these 2 even have access to it???

  • Tailor Koko Milk

    That crackhead lucky he even got anything! People so damn ungrateful

  • Sid

    They are trying to hide that money

  • Rainbowbelow

    Low down dirty dogs...

  • n1kk1a

    Why do you assume he’s a crackhead?

  • Kayke

    It’s Bordentown .... and I didn’t realize this ish was going on in my neck of the woods.

  • Scromes1212

    This the new hustle. Scamming on the Internet is out of control

  • Rainbowbelow

    He didn't ask for anything. They were the one who decided to go public with this story and they were the one who started the gofund me account

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    If they were BLACK, this post and all other media outlets would lead with their Perp walk and mug shots to boot! But here in Caucasity-Village, where you are innocent until proven, (i.e. paid for), innocent. Here in Caucasity village, we replace that pesky mean ole mug shot with photos of actors from a Lasik Surgery commercial.

  • Kayke

    The man didn’t ask for anything .... they used his name, plight and good deed to get money and then scammed him. Folks gave their money to him and not them. Crackhead or not, he was given that money and derserve to have it.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Actually, they sound like the crackheads. No money for gas, scheming up on some money seems to be their thing.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Right! what the hell is she talking about?

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    They're going to jail.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Sounds about white

  • Guest©

    Be careful about judging folks. How you judge others is how you will be judged.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes, internet scamming is out of control. I suspect more of these GoFundMe lawsuit's, will be on the rise.

  • Vonn

    This homeless man gave this ditzy broad his last 20 bucks so she could get gas. He even walked her to and from the station because he was concerned about her safety. These two piles of sh!t raised money for him, to turn around and steal it from him. Karma, drop everything that you're doing and go visit these two.

  • Dollface

    Aretha Franklin said "A beggar is not less than you, because one day it could be you"

    Matthew 7-1:2 say "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

  • datjerk

    Git em

  • Coy little wink

    He has drug issues reportedly

  • Vonn

    The news has reported that Bobbitt has attempted rehab at least twice. I don't remember crack being specified as his drug of choice.

  • rodt

    they stole his money and now he is ungrateful? What part of dumb are you

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Thank you. So because he's homeless and might have a substance abuse issue, it's OK to steal money from him?
    People just say the dumbest, most ignorant stuff nowadays.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    The lawyer representing McClure got his pay.

  • Reina1718

    Now they goin to be homeless setting up a go fund me for themselves

  • Vonn

    Meanwhile, the man that stole the money looks as if he has some type of drug problem himself.

  • Reina1718

    White ppl

  • Vonn

    They should be stoned.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They're stupid if they thought they could spend this man's money away on luxuries for themselves, and just get away with it.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Have you ever read gofundme? I was surprised at what they let on there. One was quit my job 3 months ago bought a new car. Need help with payments. There was another one needed help with implants. It’s just unreal.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    No kidding.

  • Stationarity

    I am trying to figure out why she didn’t have a debit card, a credit card,.... anything? They definitely sound suspicious.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Take em down. This does my heart good to read this. They deserve everything they get. How dare you do that to someone. I wouldn't have been so mad if they would have chosen to split it with the man, but they had to be greedy

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    wut WOW that’s right up the road, i had thot i heard burlington on the tv but didn’t put 2 and 2 togetha

  • Yui

    Good.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I betchu she won't be runnin outta gas no time soon,cuz she ain got no car. Now they need to freeze their bank account. If you will cheat and scam the homeless you will fvck over anybody. One good thing about this is GoFundMe stated that they will give him his 400k after their investigation. Criminal charges needs to be filed.

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    i thought i was the only one, from the story i keep hearing he got paid and they took a cut as well, some folks are reporting it as if they left the street sleeper high and dry with no dough

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The entire $400k that the public donated was for that man. It's his money.All of it. People didn't donate money for these two to spend the man's money on BMW's and trips.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Drag em!

  • the guest

    YES!!!!!

  • the guest

    Lord have mercy.

  • Li-Wright

    That's too much money for one person who is half-crazy to have. Homeless man should have a guardian to oversee the money and make sure he doesn't go through it fast. Please Judge, administer the GFM.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    I just get the feeling there is something more sinister going on with these two. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them gave him the $20 and it went from there.

  • Soon2BWife

    I’m still stuck on a previous write up that said they bought him his dream car a 1999 Ford Ranger and a used RV because he didn’t want an actual brick and mortar home. ????? I noticed she is a brunette now which is the color box blondes become when they are on they way to jail. Last ditch effort to look innocent, lol!!!

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Well, if GoFundMe gives him the money back that means the couple are going to be charged with theft and GoFundMe will become the victims. Then a plethora of federal charges will come into play....

  • Rainbowbelow

    I don't know if anyone has ever asked this, but if she ran out of a gas, why didn't she call her boyfriend for help?

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Yep, thought about that too. I wouldn't be surprised if the ENTIRE encounter was a scam.

  • the guest

    It was a scam all along. They are criminals. The minute he helped her and she told her boyfriend, their criminal mind wheels started turning.

    They didn’t get greedy when the money came in. They knew all along they would pimp the homeless man with a heart of gold story on go fund me for profit.

    Karma is turning life around for that homeless man who helps others even when he DOESN’T HAVE and when he DOES HAVE. There aren't many people like that in the world.

    The couple is about to go prison. And Hollywood is about to knock on that homeless man’s door for the rights because this story is a book and movie that’s going to make him a rich man.

  • Rachel

    If they were BLACK that GFM account wouldnt have never reached 400K. Maybe its just me but when i see black folks in need of help or even being good citizens they are not striking gold on GFM like white folks.

  • Vonn

    Yes, that's his money!! He should have been able to continue to try and rehabilitate himself with the money that they stole.

  • Vonn

    That sounds delightful.

  • deidre martin

    and the 1999 ford ranger has already broke down

  • the guest

    They took his money and lived it up on white privilege....skiing, dining out, shopping, probably acting like two obnoxious white fake elitists the whole time.

  • Fire & Ice

    Damn you took it back to some biblical ancient stuff ???

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I think it was a scam for all of them...they told the homeless dude they could start a gofundme to get him rich off of some sob story...then they turn around and finesse him...they all look like crackheads and I really think they didn't expect for him to get a pro-bono attorney...

  • Vonn

    If they are that diabolical and cold hearted they should get the absolute maximum sentence when the time comes.

  • Vonn

    I have always been in favor of stoning. It involves the entire community, good ole community service. Not to their deaths in this case though. But we can top it off with a Scarlet Letter. ??

  • pecancandy

    I love it when people underestimate the underdog. Thought they could pimp and finesse ol boy but........

  • Quitedeliteful

    I think all three were in on the scam and the couple got greedy. They should have given the crackhead his rightful share of the money and none of this would be happening...

  • Yup, I said it

    Good! Some people will rob you with a gun, others will rob you with a pen and this was theft.

  • Fire & Ice

    ???

  • chaisun

  • none yubiz

    Like I said yesterday...watching this like food warming up in the microwave LOLLLLLLL----where Throwback Beauty at?! She said they dropped the white privilege bag....DIEEEDDDDDD with laughter....

  • none yubiz

    Ol boy was in on the scam -- he would never admit it because that whole ex-vet, ex-medic bit would be quickly forgotten and he'd be just as much the scum of the Earth as they are. They will all take it to their graves....

  • Alextra Ballard

    Exactly... they need to be charged with something.

  • none yubiz

    Facts!! I truly believe it was a 3 way scam, I been saying it from Day one and will continue to say it. I don't think the couple raised the money with the intent to keep the money from him. The bum was in on it as well with the initial intention to raise a few thousand and split it. When they hit it bigger than anticipated they probably were like nah ninja you gon get this 10K we originally promised you and gave him another 15K, a camper and a beat up Ford hoping he'd disappear, OD or end up in jail. The woman said he had no credentials and that was mainly why he was living on her property in the camper AND that was the reason the bank account wasn't in his name but then why would you buy a vehicle and put it in your name for someone with NO LICENSE to drive? Ol boy prolly kicked up like hell nah, all that's for me and here we are with them dumb asses pleading the 5th and getting the Beemer towed away. I don't feel an ounce of sympathy for the bum or them crackas...

  • none yubiz

    Right!! So imagine that the broad drove on E from that area to Philly...some BS

  • none yubiz

    TF...LOL..the campaign was for him...

  • none yubiz

    In the words of Judge Mathis "he got crackish ways.." He a whole 95 lbs. swimming in that Phillies jersey...if it aint crack I'm sure its some other Schedule C drug and it aint weed...LOL

  • Kayke

    Thats definitely some BS.

  • none yubiz

    Two times they did not appear -- Black folk woulda been in cuffs after the first missed appearance.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yes they did! They figured a crackhead wouldn't be able to defend himself by getting a lawyer and suing their arses. Now, they about to lose all of their possessions that they can't account for and might have to do a bid. No sympathy from me...

  • none yubiz

    Please speak the facts chile!! And let's not forget that the BF had a string of legal problems with a penchant for gambling. They woulda been exposed a brotha's past before the first hearing started. I'm making it my personal mission to write on every news article here in Jersey about this shit..the girl will leave that dude and claim he was the whole mastermind behind this shit. She'll reconcile and team up with the bum and go on tour LOLLL

  • Ajavee

    Good point.

  • Kayke

    Literally up the road. That’s even more shameful cause folks in Bordertown ain’t broke. Greedy azxex.

  • adam jones

    I agree! I don’t believe he gave them 20.00. I think this was all fraudulent from the jump.

  • Soon2BWife

    Dag! Poor guy! He was literally being a good human helping these slobs and this is how he is repaid. He’ll get his reward and then some.

  • hottlanta

    Imma try my black privilege n write a check for 5000.00 let it bounce like a rubber band n see will l go to jail since white folks can steal 400 thousand n still walk the streets.

  • Soon2BWife

    Bye bad haircut! *nene’s voice*

  • Renee26

    Don't do it!! You'll have a fresh mugshot lol

  • Logan Roberts

    Chile they had dude messed up, thought he was a whole sucker out here in these streets. Lol.

  • Quitedeliteful

    What they didn't count on was him getting off of that crack long enough to fight for his money! LOLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!! Just because he's a crackhead doesn't mean he's stupid!

  • Logan Roberts

    I don't believe the couple spent all that money, it's probably hidden somewhere. And why didn't they just split it three ways? They thought Johnny was a real sucker. Lol.

  • nick c

    LOL This is how they treat people who owe back taxes if they dont find the money or you refuse to work and pay it off you going to jail for a long time. They probably hoping for some plea deal.

  • Wreckognize Game

    He ain't homeless no more. He changed their address to his shyt (in my Weezy F Baby voice) The F is for Foh.

  • RespectSelf

    lol I'm not understanding why they couldn't all work something out. I mean $400,000 is well over the $10,000. And that's 20,000 times the amount he gave her for gas lol...... They should have figured something out.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Not surprised! Damn scammers!

  • Vonn

    It was nice knowing ya. ??

  • Vonn

    Bobbitt said I'm not that Damn high! I can still count.

  • the guest

    Because they are crooks. Its not about enough to go around. They started that go fund me for profit, not charity.

  • the guest

    LOL!!!!

  • the guest

    Never considered that.

  • the guest

    I can see this and I'm done because this level of conniving makes you lose faith in humanity.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!! Just because he likes crack doesn't mean he's stupid!!!

  • Strappyheels

    A lot of folks assume hard times and struggles equals stupidity..

    These pampered little pieces of shit.. I hope they get the book thrown at them..

    The Vet is about to use his White Privledge Card to the max..

  • Strappyheels

    I wouldn’t doubt it!!

  • Junkanoo

    That's all white folks are good for theifing vile pair that will learn dem

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    FACTS! Yes, i forgot the narrative for a black person has to lead with "ex-con",(though he was only picked up for unpaid speeding tickets)...However in your Caucasity-Village narrative, that narrative will include "The former church missionaries" and "the suburban Family" and lets not forget the slew of character witnesses, that will come forth to proclaim "they made a terrible mistake and they'reheartbroken by their actions" ....Please please! anybody point out the lie.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    400K would sober up even Keisha Cole's mama....(praying for you Frankie)

  • none yubiz

    Not a single lie detected ???

  • dru and neil

    Just watched a news clip of their house getting raided...those folks ain’t nothing but po’ white trash! It’s making sense now, they didn’t have sh*t themselves, and really just lost their damn minds when they came up on that much money. That BMW looked so out of place getting repo’d in front of that hillbilly shack! And that judge is not playing with them, they are going to be held accountable for this!

  • Solstice
  • dru and neil

    Because his broke ass probably didn’t have any money. My entire view of these people has changed since I saw how they were living. At first I thought they were greedy a-holes who thought they could skim off the top, I see now that they are desperate trash and don’t have a pot to piss in themselves. They were NEVER going to let that money go.

  • Guest©

    The money was raised for the vet. He deserves that money. If he has a drug problem someone should make financial decisions for him but that's still his money. I hope he gets rehabilitated and finds peace.

  • none yubiz

    These folks are going IN on that house and the property on nj.com..LOLLLL

  • Solstice

    Lmbao!! Wait. So they didn’t use that $400K to fix up their shack??! But they bought a luxury vehicle, that needs luxury gas and luxury maintenance ?…????

  • Solstice

    Heading over there now! ??
    ?????

  • Queen B

    They gave him 200k and he blew it!!

  • mona q

    Trash.

  • the guest

    and really just lost their damn minds when they came up on that much money. That BMW looked so out of place getting repo’d in front of that hillbilly shack! And that judge is not playing with them, they are going to be held accountable for this!

    ****

    THIS!

  • Andrea Williams

    Hi, I heard on the news that THEY SAID that they gave him $200,000, but he said they only gave him $75,000. They blew the rest and posted it on Facebook. They was out there having a good time. Lol, Facebook gets them every time. Have a good day.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The Vet

    No, they told him they would buy him the truck. They never bought it, they "sold" him her family members broke down SUV. They even took that back and sold it. He was told they would buy him a home, instead they bought a run down trailer and parked it on her families property. They took that back and sold it too.

  • dru and neil

    Typical ghetto behavior! House is mess but they got new designer clothes, bags, taking vacations and got a beamer in the driveway surrounded by junk. It looked like an old lady lived there. I wonder if they stay with one of their grandmothers to be honest.

  • dru and neil

    I think it’s becasue we assumed they were some trendy yuppie couple who already had money and wanted more, come to find out they are more like Dan and Rosanne.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Idiots.
    I bet they said, Let's just "borrow" x-amount of dollars & we will pay it back.
    Then the spirit of greed & denial took over & it was a wrap.

  • dru and neil

    Those folks are living in a shack. People are saying it looked like a detached garage that someone turned into an apartment, so yeah that money is making them lose their minds for real!?

  • none yubiz

    Dan and Roseanne..lmaooooo

  • none yubiz

    Omg ?????

  • dru and neil

    I agree, sick dogs that need surgery GFM blows up before a black person in need.

  • dru and neil

    Remember, in the beginning, people didn’t understand how she ran out of gas. She had been riding fumes all day I bet, broke ass.

  • Cheeseheadmike

    Their troubles are just beginning. If they did blow the money on themselves the IRS is going to demand back taxes and penalties on unreported income. Yikes!

  • Will Varner

    I doubt it.

  • Tailor Koko Milk

    They gave him over 200,000 they Los have to pay for things along way so as I said that crackhead lucky to get almost quarter million foh!

  • Dun Dilly

    Damn , they didn't hide the bag? I hate uneducated thieves, they know they should have set up a legal foundation THEN put all the cash raised where it can't be touched. Hillary + Bill Clinton raped HAITI for a Billi and now kicking back at the crib eating chilled grapes.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    Chile!! ???
    Ain’t nothing worse than a white person that don’t know how to use white privilege! Like...what is you stupid????

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    I really believe they were all in on it now since we know the masterminds live in a hillbilly shack ??(thank you dru and neil??) They all hillbillies. The masterminds should get most of the penalty but the homeless vet should go down too. He is indeed homeless...or portrays himself as homeless because I used to see him all the time at the entrance to Walmart near me.

  • Allihave2say

    Funny!

  • Allihave2say

    They couldn't afford the meetings.

  • Allihave2say

    …she was in the only car they had. How was he going to get the money to her?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Trash that looks like trash.

    Hell you should have used some of it for a wedding. Oh sorry he don't want to marry you just used you and now you both can go to jail. IDIOTS
