Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help.

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 help her get gas. To thank him, McClure, 28, and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, 39, created a GoFundMe account to raise funds for Bobbitt. Around 14,000 people donated to the campaign, which brought in more than $400,000 overall.
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 they will face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception, a source familiar with the case told NBC 10. The couple turned themselves in on Wednesday to Burlington County authorities, the source said. It was unlcear if Bobbitt was with them. The Burlington County Prosecutor’s office is expected to make an announcement in the case on Thursday, The New York Post reported, citing multiple reports.
The story appeared to begin to fall apart after Bobbitt claimed that the couple used the GoFundMe money as “personal piggy bank,” and sued the couple in August over the funds. Bobbitt’s attorney, Jacqueline Promislo, told The New York Post in September that the couple started to spend the money right after depositing it into their bank account. Bobbitt accused the two of mismanaging the donations, which the couple initially denied.
“They went on shopping sprees,” Promislo told the paper. “[Bobbitt] tells me they had a Louis Vuitton bag and Chanel sunglasses, a new iPhone 10.”
But the couple claimed they withheld the money to help Bobbitt. They said once the money came in, Bobbitt began to give some to relatives and spend it on drugs. He ultimately received roughly $75,000 from the GoFundMe, which he used to purchase a camper and SUV — both of which he no longer has, reports said. D’Amico claimed in August that he controls the funds and that he would dispense the money when Bobbitt gets a job and stops using drugs. Police had raided the couple’s New Jersey home in September, confiscating a new BMW, jewelry and cash, NBC 10 reported.
I’m gonna give you a quote from August 27, 2018 and you tell me who published these words:
Here’s what probably happened. They were all in on this together. Obviously Mark D’Amico is a swamp maggot with Google trophies up the wazoo. They told this homeless guy, “Let’s say you gave us your last $20 when we ran out of gas, everyone will feel bad for you, and we’ll all cash in on the GoFundMe together.”
He was like, “sure, why not? I’m homeless, da fuq do I have to lose?”
And it worked out better than any of them could’ve imagined.
The problem arose when reality sent in. Bootleg Kevin Federline and realized that the guy they partnered was indeed a junkbox who wanted to have a $400,000 crack giveaway party. The plan was to split the cash, but he felt bad since he’d just be feeding this guy’s habit. So instead of buying him a house they bought him a camper which they put on their property, and that turned into a nightmare because he sat in it all day, got high, and made sweet, sweet love to himself.
Finally the homeless dude said, “Fuck it, I’m going to give handies under the bridge for crack money since these chiselers aren’t giving me what they promised.” And here we are.
This is why you come to Turtleboy. Because our instincts are impeccable, and we are the only media outlet that isn’t afraid to make a bold but obvious prediction that goes against the acceptable norms civilized society has arbitrarily created. All these sheep were blaming D’Amico and McClure for ripping off a poor homeless veteran and treating Bobbitt like he was some sort of victim. Not one of these lemmings bothered to ask themselves these questions:
Why does a homeless guy have $20 on him?
What kind of homeless guy gives that money to two strangers for gas money instead of on food, alcohol, or the new testers from Diego?
If they ran out of gas then they only needed half a gallon of gas to get to the gas station, so why did he spend $20 on gas?
How did he transport $20 worth of gas from the gas station to the car? That’s at least 5 gallons of gas, and would be extremely heavy.
Why did he have a 5 gallon gas can in the first place?
Why was a homeless guy randomly sitting right there on a highway when they ran out of gas?
Use your brain folks. It’s OK to question things to seem too good to be true. People will call you mean and say things like,
“What is wrong with you?”But at the end of the day you’re right and they’re wrong, and the truth is the only thing that matters.
The biggest mistake bootleg George Clooney and his wife made was partnering with a junkie. It could’ve worked out if they had just given him $100,000 and let him spend it on whatever he wanted. But instead they actually cared about what happened to him and didn’t want to contribute to his drug habits. When you do that to a junkie they get mad. That’s why bootleg George Clooney wrote him this text message after Junkbox Johnny started opening his big mouth:
You should’ve done that to begin with idiot. Write him a check and walk away. If he dies, he dies. Not your problem.
I have two points to make here.
- I don’t think any of them should be arrested. No one made anyone donate to them. The second I saw this I immediately knew it was a scam and chose not to donate. If you were dumb enough to not ask questions and blindly gave your money to an obvious scam, then that money wasn’t meant for you. This was not a registered charity with any oversight. It was two strangers on the Internet with a tall tale. That money was never your’s to begin with, and it was only a matter of time until you blew it on something stupid. These people earned that money by using GoFundMe to exploit stupid people. So quit whining about stupid you were, because we told you this was a scam and you donated anyway like a dumbass.
- A lot of people are saying GoFundMe should be shut down too, which is equally as stupid. This is like how Congress is blaming Trump’s election on Facebook, and how SJWs are blaming the Pittsburgh shooting on Gab. These tech companies should be neutral platforms where free speech takes place. They should not be held responsible for the speech that happens on their platform. We should not be encouraging ANY tech company to be more proactive in taking down content on their site. When that happens you get the mass censorship that we see today on Facebook and Twitter. If you see something illegal happening on one of these platforms then call the cops and have the person doing the illegal things arrested.
