admin Posted November 16, 2018 Share Posted November 16, 2018 Right around this time last year, a story went viral out of Philadelphia. A woman named Kate McClure ran out of gas in Philadelphia in the middle of the night and she didn't have any cash. And a homeless guy named Johnny Bobbitt walked to the gas station and used HIS last $20 to help her out. So Kate and her husband Mark D'Amico set up a GoFundMe to thank him . . . and it wound up raising $400,000. A pretty great, heartwarming story, right? Well, we should've all known better. It turns out the three of them came up with the story together as a way to scam people out of money. Apparently Kate and Mark met Johnny about a month earlier, and then they met up with him a few times and gave him some money . . . and they all came up with the story together. And Kate and Mark were also hoping to land a book deal out of it. Now they're all facing criminal charges of conspiracy and theft by deception. Kate and Mark turned themselves in on Wednesday . . . and Johnny was arrested later that night. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
