Woman Accused in GoFundMe Scam Says Even Her Mom Didn’t Believe Her

The tale of a homeless veteran giving Katie McClure his last $20 after she ran out of gas last year, prompting thousands to donate more than $400,000, is a lie. Allegedly it was made up by McClure, Mark D'Amico, and the veteran himself, Johnny Bobbitt. McClure's attorney said her client was not aware of the scheme, pointing to D'Amico and Bobbitt as the real culprits. McClure's own mother suspected the story was fake, according to an alleged text exchange between McClure and a friend.
