A husband alleged GoFundMe money homeless man on a shoe collection, expensive holidays: Report
A lawyer for a homeless man in Philadelphia, whose lack of sincerity contributed to donations of more than $ 400,000 through an online fundraising page, said the couple who set up the fund had spent money collecting expensive shoes and holidays.
John Bobbit’s lawyer, Jacqueline Brumisello, told the New York Post that the couple began spending money directly after depositing it in their bank account.
‘They went shopping,’ she told the newspaper. ‘[Bobitt] told me that they have a Louis Vuitton bag and a solar Chanel sunglasses, a new iPhone 10.’
She said the forensic accountant will check the account and verify the allegations. ‘But now that they said no money, where did you go?’
Kate McClure and Mark Daimoku are the couples accused in a lawsuit filed by Bobbit for mismanaged donations raised for him through GoFundMe. The couple denies the allegations in the suit, saying they are concerned that Bubbit will be given large sums because they fear they will buy drugs.
GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne said the company was working with law enforcement to ensure that Johnny Bobbit gets all the money raised to him after he used his last $ 20 to help a woman get gas.
McClure and Damico’s lawyer did not want the newspaper to comment.
McClure put the page to go back to Boubit, a veteran soldier helped her when the gas ran out of on the way out of interstate Interstate 95 late one night. I have collected over $ 400,000 from more than 14,000 people.
Bobbitt walked a few blocks to buy McClure gas. She did not have the money to repay him at the time, but she asked him days later to give him money and visited him several more times to bring food and water. They later appeared in programs such as ‘Good Morning America’ and were interviewed by the BBC.
Since then the relationship deteriorated.
D’Amico told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he spent $ 500 of GoFundMe money for gambling because he did not have his casino card for one night, but he said he had paid for it.
D’Amico said Bobit spent $ 25,000 in less than two weeks in December on drugs, paid legal bills and sent money to his family.
The couple also bought Bobbitt captain some of the boxes and parked them on the ground owned McClure family in Florence, New Jersey. But Bobit became homeless again after Dimuko told him in June that he had to leave.
Fallon said that Bobit received about $ 75 thousand including the carper as well as the Ford Ranger 1999.
Promisello called Bobbit ‘sweet’ and he praised Kate.
She said: ‘I said:’ I have also been given a little money when you live in a trailer in her path. ” But he loves her! He would not actually follow this – it is not by nature alone.
