#GoFundMe campaign for homeless man 'predicated on a lie,' prosecutor says

A New Jersey couple and a homeless man have been accused of making up a feel-good story that raised more than $400,000 through GoFundMe. The couple, Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico, and the man, Johnny Bobbitt Jr., face charges of second-degree theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception, Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said Thursday.

GREED

The sad thing is, if they wasn't greedy and would have split money equally... they would have gotten away with it. This is the reason I will never give to GoFundMe aka The New Welfare.

If the money was split as originally agreed upon, they would never have been caught.

But actually this is no worse than giving to United Way, Red Cross...etc. who in turn pay their executives enormous salaries.

This is why you don't give money to beggars on the internet.
