McClure is a receptionist for the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and D'Amico is a carpenter, according to the Inquirer.
It seemed like a feel-good story: A homeless man bought a stranded woman a tank of gas with his last $20, and in return she set up a GoFundMe campaign to help him get back on his feet that ultimately raised a whopping $400,000.
The couple, in a statement through their attorney, said they gave Bobbitt $200,000.
"As of this time, there have been no charges filed", Burlington County Prosecutor Scott A. Coffina said in a statement on Thursday.
What happened to the actual donations is now under criminal investigation.
But the couple only handed over about $75,000, according to Bobbitt's lawyer.
Kate McClure, 28, and Mark D'Amico, 39, launched a successful GoFundMe effort that raised $400,000 for Johnny Bobbitt, who last Thanksgiving gave McClure $20 for gas when she ran empty in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood.

Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Pressley, sending her media attention in the final leg of her campaign. "People of every walk of life". The last time an incumbent Democratic House member lost a primary was in 2014, when Seth Moulton defeated former Rep.
Bobbitt, who is from Philadelphia, has sued McClure and D'Amico to recover much of the $402,000 they solicited through a crowdfunding campaign late previous year.
Chris Fallon, Bobbitt's attorney, also didn't immediately respond Thursday to a request for comment. Here the lady had the thought of the great act as the foundation which was launched with the name GoFundMe went viral as there were many campaigns led by the couple.
The couple has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but a court order deadline for them to hand over the cash has passed. The judge also ordered McClure and D'Amico to provide a full accounting of the money.
On Wednesday, Judge Dow ordered Badway to tell his clients, who were not in court, that they must appear before her September 14 after giving sworn depositions on what happened to the money at Badway's law office on Monday morning. However, Bobbitt's attorney said all the cash for him was gone.
McClure and D'Amico claim that they were withholding the money from Bobbitt to make sure he didn't spend it on drugs, after his attorney previously admitted his client's drug addiction. But the couple's stated plans to get Bobbitt a home and set up two trusts to ensure his financial independence quickly dissolved, and Bobbitt accused them of squandering the money on vacations, a BMW and gambling.
The couple's attorney, Ernest Badway, refused to comment on the search and whether or not they'd show up to be deposed.
The Inquirer reported that D'Amico spoke of expenses that he and his girlfriend had incurred caring for Bobbitt, including time that they took off from work.
