GoFundMe Money for Homeless Man Is Missing, According to Attorney

They raised $400,000 for a homeless vet. There’s none left to give him, lawyer says.

In the meantime, the courts are handling this dispute, with a judge ruling last week that the couple must provide a full account of the money's whereabouts.

Chris Fallon, an attorney representing homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt Jr.,told NBC Philadelphia that he learned the more than $402,000 that was raised is gone in a conference call with attorneys for the couple who headed the campaign previous year, Katie McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico.

Jacqueline Promislo, a lawyer representing the homeless U.S. veteran in his case against Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure, confirmed in an email to the BBC that they were told "the money is all gone" in a conference call on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Fallon asked the judge to hold the couple in contempt of court and to relinquish what is left of the donations within 24 hours.

Judge Paula Dow of Burlington County Superior Court also expressed concern that Kate McClure and boyfriend Mark D'Amico, who were once considered good Samaritans for raising the money through a GoFundMe account for the destitute military vet Johnny Bobbitt Jr., will attempt to flee her jurisdiction.

However, the pair claimed in an interview on USA show Megyn Kelly Today they were giving him the money in installments due to a prior drug problem.

Jacqueline Promislo, another lawyer for Bobbitt said the couple's lawyer, Ernest E. Badway, never responded regarding the request to transfer the remaining GoFundMe funds or if the money had been moved, according to the paper. D'Amico has said Bobbitt, a Marine veteran, spent $25,000 in less than two weeks in December on drugs, in addition to paying overdue legal bills and sending his family money.

Both sides have given differing accounts about how much money got to Bobbitt. "There will also be 2 trusts set up in his name, one essentially giving him the ability to collect a small "salary" each year and another retirement trust which will be wisely invested by a financial planner", she wrote. After the story went viral, McClure appeared on many major television programs along with her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico.

Baron Cohen has faced past lawsuits over similar pranks, but those actions faltered because the individuals had signed releases. Baron Cohen then said they also created a device which could detect "pedophiles" after merely picking up on their scent.

A kindhearted homeless veteran who helped a stranded woman with gas money has been left "devastated" after learning that a almost half-million-dollar fortune he got through GoFundMe is gone, a lawyer for the man revealed Tuesday. They later appeared on shows like "Good Morning America" and were interviewed by the BBC.

Bobbitt's attorneys say he has received closer to $75,000, including the cost of the camper and vehicle.

The couple told NBC there was still over $150,000 left in donations. The request for an injunction also alleges that D'Amico and McClure deposited the money into personal accounts, and denied Bobbitt access to the donations.

It's unclear how or who spent all the money.

The lawyer for a Philadelphia homeless man whose kindness resulted in the creation of a fundraising page says all of the donated money is gone. NPR reports that D'Amico previously stated, "I don't want him to do anything stupid". D'Amico told the newspaper he had indeed used $500 from the bank account to gamble on a night when he forgot his Sugarhouse Casino card but had "quickly repaid" the money with his winnings.

"We are working with law enforcement officials to ensure Johnny receives all of the funds raised on his behalf".

Mr Bobbitt's lawyer claims the man is back on the street.

Promislo said that Bobbitt is now homeless and focusing on getting into rehab.
