His assertations and income claims have come under fire by some in the last few days.
Over at Andrew Johnson’s Web Publishing Blog, Andrew takes on some of the challengers with the background of his previous story about Markus:
I like Shoemoney, I read his blog every day, and I have followed his advice and made some good money from it. When I read his post this morning I thought ‘€œOh shit I screwed up.’€? I have spent half the day e-mailing people, including Markus, and re-examining the data. I can not find any evidence that casts doubt on Markus or points him out as a liar. If I find it, I will post it here along with an apology.
It’s very difficult to verify online income – sure, one can provide screenshots and other material, but the easy availability and ease of use of programs like Photoshop make even that method of verification nearly impossible to use with any level of certainty.
We’ll continue to follow the story if any new information is made available.
