Homeless vet, couple in viral campaign faked story

A couple, Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico, started the campaign which was sold as effort to raise money for Johnny Bobbitt Jr., a homeless ex-Marine and North Carolina-native in Philadelphia.

Mark D'Amico, Kate McClure, both of Florence, and the homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt, will face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception.

A New Jersey prosecutor says he will announce developments in a criminal investigation of a couple that raised $400,000 USA for a homeless man they said helped them with a disabled vehicle.

In September, police raided the couple's home.

Approximately $400,000 was raised on his behalf.

According the the couple's story that caught national attention, Bobbitt gave his last $20 to McClure, who was stranded without gas in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood in 2017.

Durex wishes Deepveer a happy married life
However, you will be amused to see how these famous condom brands made a decision to wish the newlyweds a "Happy married life". The couple reportedly started dating in 2013 but have kept details of their relationship largely out of the public eye.

D'Amico and McClure had previously denied any wrongdoing or misuse of the funds, even as their recent purchase of a used BMW and lavish vacations were called into question in a courtroom.

The New York Post reported that the prosecutor's office in Burlington County, New Jersey, is expected to make an announcement regarding the case on Thursday.

The overwhelming response led to donations from more than 14,000 well wishers, but the couple's relationship with Mr Bobbitt eventually soured as they accused him of using the money to feed a drug habit. But Bobbitt became homeless again after D'Amico told him in June he had to leave.

The couple also bought Bobbitt a camper with some of the funds and parked it on land McClure's family owns in New Jersey.

Later that month, GoFundMe told KYW that it was working to ensure that Bobbitt received the money raised for him.
