Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.


Yesterday we published this blog about Newton conman Michael Burris, who scammed a Lunenburg couple out of $17,500 for a wedding he was hired to put together, which has since been cancelled.

Michael Burris registered a LLC with the Secretary of State called MBD Hospitality Services. He claims to put on functions, including parties and weddings, and says he has a bunch of employees. But it’s all a lie. His employees never get paid, and the functions never happen. He steals money and gets away with it. He should be in jail.

But after becoming Turtleboy famous he decided that he’d take to Facebook to defend his honor. Unfortunately for him the fam was not there to support him. As a matter of fact his cousin showed up and did the exact opposite….

Boom. Roasted.

Turns out he might be homeless. Good thing Thumbtack recommended him as a contractor for a guy looking to get married. To test this out we created a Thumbtack account yesterday looking for a wedding contractor. Thumbtack recommended a bunch of people who have messaged us (sorry if you wasted your time contacting us). That’s how this website works – they put their reputation on the line to recommend people you should hire. So then why aren’t they legally responsible when they recommend someone like this? It wasn’t exactly a secret.

Michael wasn’t happy that his cousin pointed out how ashamed she was to have a deadbeat con-artist like him as a cousin, so he had to respond….

She didn’t like that…..

He also admitted to having the “disease” but overcoming it anyway to build an empire:

“Empire.” Translation – I steal money from people who actually work for a living so I can buy smack from Diego.

She wanted it to be clear to him that after reading our blog she no longer considered him a cousin….

He responded by blaming the parents he has been mooching off for years when he’s not stealing money from strangers….

His ability to lecture normal, law abiding people about how they are failures while he is a success story is remarkable…..

It’s like he’s really convinced himself that he is in fact a legitimate and successful businessman.

Finally she linked to the article on the Turtleboy Sports Return Facebook page…..

And he removed them within minutes and seems to have blocked her account now.

We’re not done with this asshole. Not until he’s in jail. A bunch of people have messaged us with similar horror stories about him, so stay tuned for more….

    the action of damaging the good reputation of someone; slander or libel.

    He was not arrested, this is a lie. The couple will not receive one red cent from him because he was never paid to begin with. Why doesn’t the couple show the receipts? I work with Mike, I know what kind of businessman he is. As for his family, I’ve been told they have no contact with him for their own reasons. Clearly the sister was embarrassed and took what was being written to be true without doing research. The couple needs to show receipts or this whole thing is one big lie. No money was stolen period. Seems like one big waste of time to me. He’s innocent, and not in jail.

      Actually HE would be the one the one who needs receipts…to prove he didn’t steal the money, not the couple. Why would the couple need receipts. When people steal from you they usually don’t give you a receipt for it.

      You do realize that there is a lot of information online about this case? Not just here on turtleboy. According to other sources Mr. Burris was paid by check, which he cashed. So unless the bride and groom and the bank are conspiring against Mr. Burris regarding the check(s) he cashed from the bride and groom, which would seem highly unlikely, it does appear there is solid evidence that Mr. Burris was paid by the couple. And arrests are public information, unless police departments are now faking those as well. Since you work for mr Burris, you should contact the other 2 employees that were with him (their names where not included in other reports) when payment was made to him by the bride and groom. They will be able to help prove that the bride and the groom and the bank are conspiring against Mr. Burris and help strengthen his case, if in fact he was not paid by the bride and groom. Curious how this will turn out.

    This whole family is one huge train wreck.

    Hey, anyone know if those “notify me” buttons actually do anything? Like, if I put in Mark Zuckerberg’s email address and click those two notify me buttons prior to clicking Post Comment, will Zuck actually get a shitload of e-mails from turtleboy?

    I like how TBS causes domestic strife between the good person(she) and the criminal.

    His writing is atrocious, and I mean atrocious!
    He also loves the term “One Red Cent.”
    I can’t wait to see what else this hood booga has done.

    I got the hell out of Lynn when I turned 18. It has also produced Kevin Trudeau (biggest infomercial scammer in history) and Billy Ierardi, triggerman in the Blackfriars Massacre. I think there’s something in the water.

    Michael Burris told me the reason he never saw his family in Newton is because they were all alcoholics and had serious problems. That was right before he conned me into believing he was actually going to pay me for the work I did for him. Which he did not. I feel sorry for his sister.

    I’m disappointed. How can I read a multiparty story about this guy while I’m still waiting for the 5 billion part expose on OLK9 Training to finish?
