McClure and D'Amico ostensibly set up the GoFundMe past year for Bobbitt, a homeless veteran, after he gave McClure his last $20 when she ran out of gas while driving into Philadelphia.

The New Jersey couple who raised $400,000 through GoFundMe for a homeless man who, they say, gave them his last $20 previous year allegedly made up the story as part of a scam that all three of them were in on, according to a report.
Prosecutors say that Johny Bobbitt Jr. worked with Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure to concoct a fictitious sob story in order to dupe people out of cash they could all share. Their lawyer did not answer a phone call.
Over 14,000 people donated to what they believed was a good cause - raising money for a homeless man trying to get his life back on track.
It was off the same exit ramp to the casino that McClure and Bobbitt posed for a touching photo together after Bobbitt supposedly came to her rescue with the gas money - which officials now say was anything but spur-of-the-moment. It's unclear what happened.
The couple turned themselves in to authorities Wednesday, while Bobbitt was arrested in Philadelphia.
An attorney for Bobbitt could not immediately be reached for comment.
In an appearance on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Live", McClure and D'Amico denied the allegations, saying they withheld some of the money out of fear Bobbitt would spend it on drugs.
Burlington County prosecutor Scott Coffina announced criminal charges against the couple who told the story to newspapers and television stations along with the homeless man who conspired with them to tell the story. They said they used their own money to buy the auto.
In a statement, a spokesman for the crowdfunding site confirmed donors will receive a refund.
In September, GoFundMe told Gizmodo that it had decided that it would give Bobbitt the full balance of the remaining funds he was owed but the case has been in legal limbo ever since.
"Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn't repay him at that moment because I didn't have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks", McClure wrote on GoFundMe.
Coffina said it was that public interest that prompted him to investigate further, ultimately raiding the couple's home and learning of the ruse, according to local outlets.
