Homeless Man Takes Couple To Court For Not Paying GoFundMe Campaign Money

A couple from Philadelphia set up a GoFundMe page for a homeless man who bought them gas with his life savings, $20. The campaign has been active for 9-months and has raised over $400,000. Recently, a court case has been filed because the homeless man did not receive a large portion of the campaign money.

The GoFundMe reads:

“This is Johnny.
Driving into Philly one night, I made the mistake of thinking that I would be able to make it all the way down I- 95 with my gas light on. Needless to say, I was wrong. I never ran out of gas before, and my heart was beating out of my chest. I pulled over as far as I could and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station.
That’s when I met Johnny. Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can.  Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe.”

Johnny’s lawyer Chris Fallon issued the following statement:

“From what I can see, the GoFundMe account raised $402,000 and GoFundMe charged a fee of approximately $30,000. Mark D’Amico and Kate McClure gave Johnny about $75,000. There should be close to another $300,000 available to Johnny.”

GoFundMe also issued a statement regarding the court case:
“When there is a dispute, we work with all parties involved to ensure funds go to the right place. We will work to ensure that Johnny receives the help he deserves and that the donors’ intentions are honored.”

The case is still playing out and Johnny still does not know if he will receive his cut of the campaign.
