The most respectable living and breathing animal posing in this picture below is the PUPPY. The other three are unscrupulous scumbags.
It takes a certain breed of degenerate to qualify as a scumbag, these three fit the bill to a T.
- A New Jersey couple and a homeless Philadelphia man who were once the symbol of generosity in hard times allegedly conspired with each other to come up with a false story to earn GoFundMe donations and will now face charges, according to a complaint obtained by NBC 10 Philadelphia.
- The original story was this: Johnny Bobbitt, who was homeless, gave his last $20 to Kate McClure, a stranded motorist in Philadelphia in November last year. To thank him, McClure, 28, and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, 39, created a GoFundMe account to raise funds for Bobbitt. More than 14,000 people donated more than $400,000 to the campaign.
- But investigators said the three deliberately prevented donors from gaining information “that would affect their judgment about solicited contribution to that fundraising effort,” according to the station. Now the three will face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception, a source familiar with the case told NBC 10A New Jersey couple and a homeless Philadelphia man who were once the symbol of generosity in hard times allegedly conspired with each other to come up with a false story to earn GoFundMe donations and will now face charges, according to a complaint obtained by NBC 10 Philadelphia.
If there is a way for some thief to get a buck without working for it, they will find it. They have larceny in their heart and no regard for family, friends, associates or strangers. They pray on the sympathy of the public. They are so low they will steal a milk bottle from a baby, or their grandma’s false teeth if they could capitalize on it.
The three thieves conspired to work on the heart strings of some very generous people, all with the intent of scamming them. Their con did not fall apart after the fact, the planned this rouse from the beginning. It takes a special kind of a low life to pull off a shot like this.
BUTT fortunately, there is a little thing called Karma that comes back and bites these three greedy creeps in their ass. They all are now sitting behind bars waiting to see if they can con the guy wearing the black robe.
As the $oldi started rolling in, the SCUM and the BUM started blowing the money as fast as they could get their hands on it. Bobbitt the BUM began buying drugs, bought an SUV and a camper that he eventually hocked when the money was running out. All in all the BUM pissed away about 75 G’s of hard earned money/donations coming from good caring people.
His accomplishes, the terrible twosome, also had a field day blowing the money on gambling, buying luxury items and vacations with the remaining 325,000$ of the donations.
Scumbags like these three degenerates give people second thoughts about donating/giving to charities, putting the damper on folks that truly are in need. There will be many people that suffer because of the greed of these three characters.
To all of the generous donators out there that feel the need to GIVE, be careful of where and what you donate to.
Here we have some organizations to definitely stay away from.
Sad to say, it is not only unscrupulous individuals that take advantage of the generosity of people, many very large organization are constantly raping the general public financially.

How much of the donations given to some charities really never goes to its intend source? From what I read, in many cases, less than 10%.
Then there are the professional long term operations. They utilize direct mail or telemarketers to solicit millions of dollars in donations from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Are you concerned you’ve already been scammed or just want to make sure you won’t be in the future? Here are some of the worst offenders:

This list was put together by the Tampa Bay Times and The Center for Investigative Reporting based on federal tax filings for the last 10 years. Charities are broken up into five main categories: children, cancer, police/law enforcement, veterans, fire and other. These fifty charities account for more than $1.35 Billion in donations. Of that, $970 million went not to victims, but to the people who collected the money.
I would suggest, before donating to any organization or individual, check and see what percentage of your donation goes to the intended source.
In my opinion, the Salvation Army is one of the top charities to give to. 82% of every dollar they receive goes to the intended source.
The president and CEO of the American Red Cross is Gail McGovern, her base salary has remained $500,000.00 plus perks and expenses.
“The Salvation Army’s Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organisation.
Which one would you rather give to??
St. Jude is one of my favor charities. They do not charge the kids in their care, or their parents one thin dime for any and all of the services they receive, including, medical care, transportation, meals and lodging.
Let us not judge all charities by a couple of scumbags; BUTT when you are walking down a long dark alley, always stop and look behind you. CAUTIOUS is the key word.
