Karma is a bitch and so is Aunesty. I support Kim 100%.

2 dotCOMreport

Karma can’t come too quickly enough. I don’t believe people are doing this and getting away with it. They say to beware of your friends but really, how can anyone imagine that a best friend will turn out to be the worst enemy? Good expose Shoe.

3 Ara600_m1

Looks like they have a lot of issues they need to address soon otherwise it just may blow up on their collective faces.

4 Lola Dee

I don’t understand where that woman is coming from. I’m glad I don’t have a friend like her.

5 d3so

Wow! Affiliate marketing drama. I never knew it could get this bad.

6 Gayla

These folks contacted me via Twitter. I’ve known Kim and have followed her work for a very long time. I adore her! When I saw what was being done, I was sick to my stomach. What horrible people! Karma is a beeyotch and this time Karma has at least one real name – Jeremy Shoemoney.

Jeremy what you are doing here – outing the horrible people behind such heinous acts is priceless. You’re my hero – at least for today *wink* xoxo

What these people should wake up and realize is GOOD and influential people stand and align around Kim – bad people and bad acts get nowhere but mocked and shunned as they should be.

What a wonderful way to start my day!

7 WhateverWorks

Wow! How low can those people get? They seem relentless in their efforts to ruin her. How sad.

8 smstudent

Well, you’ll never really know what people are capable of. Especially those with an axe to grind.

9 Chuck Hamrick

Ya I was witness to the Aunesty drama at Affiliate Summit and ABestWeb. She suckered me into a couple of calls saying that everyone was against her. When it became evident that she was a drama queen I disassociated with her. Was glad to here that she moved to Omaha but shocked to hear she was working for Yahoo. Didn’t know about the pain she brought to Kim (who is on my A List) but the timing makes sense. If someone has connections at Yahoo they should forward this post.

10 UD

Man I love it when Shoe brings the hammer down. He has this lawyer-like approach of blasting the accused with facts until there is nothing left to do but surrender.

11 Melanie Johnson

It’s high time someone exposes what those two are up to. I sure they get to read this and stop their malicious campaigns against Kim, who’s actually the victim from the very beginning.

12 Mark

hey Jeremy good on you fella for outing a couple of bastards like these two. this is the sort of stuff we do not need on the net. I do have to agree with you though….. I too do not understand women !! keep up the good work


13 Phil Gerbyshak

Scumbags through and through. So sad. Karma will fix it…hopefully soon!

14 Vince

Looks like it’s already started. Anyone who read this post would now have two names to add in the losers list.

15 Laura Lake

Must be why they purged their “friends” list on Facebook. Thanks for exposing the truth Jeremy.

16 Clint Lenard

That’s fucked up. Is this the dude?!/seepat

17 JD

Interesting piece Shoe… There are bad people everywhere; we can only learn(only if we want to) from other people’s mistakes. This is a true life story worth learning from and I wish Kim all the best. Between, your post has little to no errors this time… who is spell checking this time? lol

18 Sugicloud

be warn, there would be wolf in this world and they will feel happy when they see you down and they feel down when they see you happy.

19 Mathew Carpenter

What a terrible thing that happened to Kim. Props for outing these dirtbags.

20 browie

Best post on ever

21 Ron Johnson

It’s terrible that adults still act like this, it sounds like something highschoolers would do IMO. I’m glad A & P ‘s stolen sites failed.

22 Trisha Lyn Fawver

I concur, it’s very sad that there are adults who can’t focus on their own lives instead of some easily discoverable attack on others.

23 Fast PC

ha ha, always drama at the shoemoney blog.

24 Trisha Lyn Fawver

I concur with Ron, it’s very sad that there are adults who can’t focus on their own lives instead of some easily discoverable attack on others.

25 Jacob

I think this is my favorite thing about you, the fact that you out people for crap like this. Most people are too scared. Bravo

26 Jim Petersen

Nice one! It’s about time someone stands up to those two.

27 Anne Haynes

This is a crazy story. Sure I want to make money doing affiliate marketing, but to associate with lethal individuals like Aunesty Janssen and Patrick Reikofski it makes me want to run for the hills. As my mother would say, “You are who you hang out with” I want to hang with Kim! It concerns me that Kim, being as succesful as she is, had the wool pulled over her eyes, but love creates distorted emotions.

Shoe, I had a client mention DMOZ directory and the first thing I thought of was the situation you went through with DMOZ. Do you still not trust them or did you make friendly again?

All the best to Kim!!!

28 Backlink Checker

Damn, what a story, I will remember those names to not do business with them :) Thans for pointing out

Good luck to you Kim :)

29 Fred Tracy

Wow. Amazing story. Looks like Kim has won in the end. :D

30 AM

What a great soap opera. I can’t wait for the episode where it’s revealed that all those terrible things were actually done by Aunesty Janssen’s evil long lost twin sister.

31 Undercover Affiliate

LOL thought so, too. They should take this in court and settle it once and for all.

32 Vinay

wow what freaks… it seems if they spent as much time working on their own lives and business instead of trying to ruin someone else’s they may not be such massive fuck ups…

33 New Bee

I couldn’t agree more. They’d have made something out of what they stole from here if they weren’t too busy bullying her. Losers.

34 Jeff

Is her real name really Aunesty? If it sounds the way I think it does, then that’s REALLY ironic!

35 Dan Horton SEO

Extremely well written and from the heart. Highlights the pitfalls of “trust”. Hat off to you Shoe for bringing this into the spotlight.Why not make your own success in life as opposed to leaching on other’s generosity? All the very best Kim.

36 Cindy Kuptz

Unbelievable, that people want to destroy Kim. I am privledged to know her. Kim was my mentor at Affiliate Summit. She ‘s friendly , generous and willing to teach others.For Kim, what come around goes around, and good things will continue coming her way.

37 Office Revolt

The old “lesbian affiliate manager sleeping with your deadbeat boyfriend story”… seen it a thousand times.

Sucks to be anyone involved in this situation.

38 Ulnyr

Good articles! Thank you!

39 Laney Pitt

What prompted you to write it? Nice read, by the way.

40 Affiliate Conference

Wow.. I can’t believe these people would do that to her. I’m glad that site was taken down and the story behind this is being published for other people to be aware of what these two are up to.

41 Tweettunes

I like the woman´s first name : Aunesty. Sounds like … Honesty. What a joke !

42 Backlink Checker

hehehe indeed! ironic

43 WhoSaysWhat01

Stealing her boyfriend then harassing her, totally low!

44 Jeff Pohl

It just goes to show you that there are more horses asses in the world than horses.

45 Hotdogman

Wow. Sounds like a bad soap opera: “As the Web Turns.”

I love it when assholes get what’s coming to them! Any way you could do a post on my ex-wife? ;op (just kidding)

46 Pond Supplies

Supposedly Aunesty has released a statement in regards to this post, she says she has “proof” of certain harrassment stuff that was going on by Kim (which I don’t know Kim so I can’t say anything about her character).

There are a couple of things that shock me about this now though:

#1: The domain WHOIS has since been returned to private registry.
#2: Aunesty says she has proof, but failed to show any in her response.

47 PokeYerFace

I read her post about still being harassed by Kim Rowley. I don’t know who’s telling the truth but they need to fix this soon. A story like theirs only leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

48 Chris

Speechless but I support KIM forever!

49 KittyCass

WOW. I thought this kind of drama stopped in High School.

50 Christine

That is seriously wicked what some people will do! Disgust.

Thank you for sharing Kim’s story. I am sorry that she has to still deal with Patrick as a father to her kids. And Aunesty for being a stalker. Stay strong, Kim!

I am glad you posted this for many people to see with all the information. And I am happy to spread the word via social media.

51 Trisha Lyn Fawver

Just to clarify, Patrick is not the father of her kids, he had a child with Aunesty, not Kim.

52 Tool

I think Patrick breaking up with Kim was the best thing that happened to her. Imagine being saddled with that kind of guy for a long time. But I have a feeling that Aunesty’s worst than the guy. They belong in a padded cell.

53 Baby Center

I agree Greg Hoffman

54 Ian Fernando

haters. just wave and say hi. Kim you got my support! so funny how people use the internet as a mask.

55 GQmeansGeek

Yeah. Take the high ground, Kim! No way anyone would believe those two anyway.

56 AnnieLouJ12860

Maybe up to a certain point only. I don’t think that she’ll just allow these people to drag her name through all of this without fighting back.

57 Jeremy

No one deserves this high school nonsense!!! How old is Aunesty.. 13?! Grow up and get an effin’ life!

Just because your life is a waste doesn’t me you need to try and bring others down.

58 Bryan Jake T

My 10-year old sister acts more mature than her. Grow up, Aunesty!

59 moolahmachine

My 10-year sister is bigger than me! ;)

60 Nikki Stewart

I hope she took legal action against those two. Too much is too much.

61 Mark Mead

At the end of the day, how they choose to handle this is their business.

62 Austin

They should have used all those efforts and energy managing “their affiliate business” instead of stalking and harassing her.

63 AurorMine

The industry doesn’t need people like those two. I hope this post would make them realize that people who know Kim Rowley would stand by her.

64 MVZP_01

I don’t do business with these people so I really don’t care. Good luck to them though. I hope they’ll be able to settle it soon.

65 AnnieP78

Remember, kids, that everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

66 Jona712

“To go a step further, Kim Rowley repeatedly discussed her sex blogs with me, and also let me know what other prominent affiliate marketer had one (whom she believed had one, I won’t state this persons name, but I do have the IM conversations where she gives details and the link to this persons site). The two sex blogs she ran, one before she met Patrick and one she ran WITH Patrick are not made up by me, but rather her work.” WTF?

67 Big Al

I wonder what those two have to say about all this. I’ve always believed in the benefit of the doubt. But in this case, hard to believe that there’s anything remotely reasonable about their motives for doing those bad things to Kim.

68 LC

Stalkers suck! Kim, I feel your pain. Stay strong and I think you are awesome! Shoe – thanks for doing a post like this.

69 Sanjay

Seems like Aunesty J. didn’t waste time clearing her name. I read an article she wrote claiming she’s the victim.

70 Creative Marketer

Well, the three of them are the only ones who know the real deal. They should at least make an effort to resolve this.

71 Greg Hoffman

The real problem was the anonymous attack targeting Kim’s friends and family. No matter what happened in the past or where the truth lies, the actions of Aunesty and Patrick in the last 5 days are truly reprehensible.

72 socialanim00

How do you exactly stop one? It must be really scary to be stalked like that. Scary and irritating.

73 TomYoon

Where’s that TO CATCH A PREDATOR guy when you need him?

74 B.Logan

Major mud-slinging fest. I hope the truth will emerge for the sake of the real victim, whoever that may be.

75 sasha_482

Aunesty, in case you didn’t know, honesty is the best policy. ;)

76 Cristina Dy

Nice one! This is perhaps the coolest comment in this thread.

77 Rachel

i agree… didn’t always, but then again, nobodys perfect…. and I myself still have A TON of learning to do, what I am sure of though is even though it sounds like some real shitty stuff has been done to this woman Kim, it will be best for all involved to forgive, especially on Kims end,not because she is wrong,i don’t know either way,but because she was wronged… Unresolved anger,hate or even just slight animosity is not good for anyone… It will slowly but surely eat you alive from the inside out, your own self is put through much more pain and suffering than the one(s) our anger is aimed at…People that are just pure vicious evil are bothered far less,if at all,than those of us who are hurt or taken advantage of by them and we will only prolong the pain by holding back our forgivness… Anyhow, i am prayerful that the truth will reveal itself all in God’s good time and those who were wronged will be stronger for it in the end

78 ILoveMemes

Amazing, pathetic story. Move on, you two!

79 TheSandMan5050

Good advice. Move on. A long-drawn spatfest like this isn’t doing them any good.

80 spameater

They should get their act together before this spatfest turns into a splatterfest — of tears (what were you thinking?)

81 joonlee97

“And now Kim Rowley has encouraged her boss to make posts about me and Patrick spreading more lies, thus continuing the Cyber Stalking and Harassment we have endured for more than two years at her hands. (as has been discussed with State Law Enforcement)” – from Aunesty Janssen and Patrick Reikofski’s official statement posted on their site

Are you the boss she’s referring to, Jeremy?

82 ExclaimedIdeas

Of course she’ll do her best to discredit the person she’s attacking. Shame on you, Aunesty!

83 georgeblanco

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the Shoemoney blog is slowly turning into an online version of Dear Abby? LOL

84 twitteraddict05

Just logged in to my account and saw a ton of tweets about these two. Hope I won’t meet the likes of them sooner or later. :(

85 thoushallpass

I guess I don’t want to take sides on this one. I wasn’t there and I don’t want to be involved, too. I just want to stay a Shoemoney fan and that’s about it.

86 EllaineR

Imagine having a friend like Aunesty. The thought alone makes my skin crawl.

87 PattyT12

“Friend” doesn’t quite describe Aunesty to me.

88 Robin Sterling

“Fiend” is much more like it…

89 NicMoon

Hmmm…sounds like a plot for a soap opera. Seriously though, I think that Kim should move on and get on with her life. She’s better off than the other two and I know there will be more blessings for her in the long run.

90 veronica_sm

Sounds like Single White Female meets The Social Network.

91 F2Xsites

That just about sums it up. Enough said. ;)

92 Nicole Burns

It would be better if they did the film with Slayer making the soundtrack.

93 WanderingMommy

LOL @ Nicole :P

94 nealcal

I’m not one to judge but how about getting Aunesty and Patrick to get their side of the story out?

95 Trisha Lyn Fawver

Someone above linked to it, Aunesty did publish their “official statements”. Look for the link in the comments.

96 melg

Cue in music from JAWS, maestro! :P

97 Marnie Sho

So here goes the time line:

Kim and Pat started dating – March 2006
Patrick and Kim broke up – December 2007
Aunesty met Patrick – June 2008

(Didn’t Kim know that there were other fish in the ocean, if you know what I mean?)

98 RedBlack88

Pardon my French, Shoe, but karma is a *bitch*. LMAO

99 FirenzeZ

Aunesty’s the real biatch here!

100 BeltwayBoy

Sounds like a Jerry Springer episode, some crazy $hit!

101 Tammyexperiments

Where’s the LIKE button when you need one?

102 KeepinItReal

Well I looked up aunesty janssen and saw her and patrick reijdhfhski and I have to say…Kim you aren’t missing much by not being with that dude. He’s FUCKING UGLY.

103 H delacruz

I found this interesting tidbit of confession: “Yes I lied to Kim about the budding relationship between Patrick and myself, we (Patrick and I) agreed it would be best. I do wish Kim would not have found out about our relationship they way she did, I would have preferred to tell her myself, but when she chose to hack into Patrick’s Facebook account and read his emails, she got an eyeful.”

104 Dandundun

I’d dump a girlfriend like that, if you ask me.

105 FirenzeZ

Why didn’t she call CHEATERS in the first place?

106 KeepinItReal

cheaters is in dallas. o.o

107 floresparati

This is just sad for all parties.

108 Bputitout / Putitoutthere

Aunesty and Patrick both need a good spanking!

109 internetFTW

Now that you are out of my life,
I’m so much better,
You thought that I’d be weak without ya,
But I’m stronger,
You thought that I’d be broke without ya,
But I’m richer,
You thought that I’d be sad without ya,
I laugh harder,
You thought I wouldn’t grow without ya,
Now I’m wiser,
You thought that I’d be helpless without ya,
But I’m smarter,
You thought that I’d be stressed without ya,
But I’m chillin’
You thought I wouldn’t sell without ya,
Sold nine million.

110 AL0101

This is from Destiny’s Child, right?

111 Yes2Freebies

I’ve never seen Shoe write this passionately on a subject for a long time. How about posting a similar one about web marketing?

112 Steve Kilberg

Great post Shoe! It’s sad how people can be jealous in this world. What worse, IMHO, is that the Affiliate industry has more than it needs of people stuck in High School with their insecure behaviors…

113 TomYoon

I leave the judging to the clouds, man. You see, each of us have skeletons in the closet and Aunesty and Patrick just had theirs at the right place and the right time. Sucks to be them though.

114 KrisM77

Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted.

115 The American Dream

“Aunesty” is such a lonely word! You got served!

116 Bill Cornell

Jeremy, Congratulations! I’m new here and. usually don’t jump into this kind of thing. I gotta’ tell you I don’t believe 90% of what I hear and less of what I read (especially on the internet). As I am legitimately a G.O.M. (grumpy old man – 53 y-o) and don’t have a lotta faith in what is being shoveled on the www. However, I want to tell you that I am shocked that such a young, successful man your age would have the guts to stand up for your friend and announce to the world not only the names of the thieves, but also their addresses here in Omaha…AND, by having the kahonies to explain how they ripped your buddy off. GOOD JOB! I believe you have started to change my mind about all the BS on the net and the character of young folks your age…GREAT JOB!
Bill in Omaha

117 Hotdogman

Who has the movie rights to this?

118 Phoebe

I thought the same thing.. :(

119 Amanda MacArthur

Wow, great blog. Using their full names in the titles (and the comments) is a sure-fire way to make sure that this blog is the first thing that shows up when someone Google’s their names!

120 Red

Wow! I live in KC, so I googled Miss Aunesty (Honesty? Really?) and saw that at one time (no date on post) she had announced her candidacy to run for State Representative. She sounds like just the kind of people who give politicians a bad name.

121 Water Aerobics

OMG what a story! It looks like a tv series. I bet you are going to rank in TOP 5 for the term “Aunesty Janssen” :)

122 TYCP Magazine

The part where you said “I will never understand women” – you probably weren’t even being all that serious, but oi! Not all of us would do this. I would never ever hand over my sites to someone else like that. I don’t care if I’ve known the person all my life. At least Kim learned her lesson. That’s the important thing here.

As for Aunesty, I’m not surprised she failed. Some people are talking about karma. I think it’s safe to say that it already hit her. Kim is reaping the good because she’s a good-hearted person. Aunesty just got herself into deep crap & pretty much ruined any chance she had at making it in the business.

123 Darwin

Why did you even post this? I don’t know any of these folks and it’s none of my business. What does it have to do with your IM business?

124 TYCP Magazine

I’m glad Shoe brought them up because now more people will know to keep their distance from them. Shoe didn’t make a mistake with this post.

125 Kimitee

Really??? These are grown-up people pulling this kind of shit? People with children? Fuckin’-Ay! Some people never get their shit together. I enjoyed your putting them on blast. lol

126 Phoebe

What a horror story … I hope that these two people get the entire affiliate marketing networks to boot them for life. Just give them enough rope to hang themselves.

I am glad she never had kids with this man :(

127 Faust

now the karma is up against them.. how toxic these individuals are..

128 Amal Buechler

Excellent article! This is actually the type of knowledge which needs to be featured throughout the net. Disgrace on the search engine listings because of not positioning this write-up more significant..

129 B.J.

I don’t understand how you can write this without being sued??

130 R.H.

I just happened to stumble upon this website and hopefully you can help me understand some stuff… What is this godaddy thing??? Months agoi istarted to notice some strange activity on the phone of someone im very close to..such as this godaddy website in the web history as well as multiple other oddities that i was constantly given no explanation for…One example being my email address appearing to be connected to others that i do not own and it appeared as if my email was linked to a small business,which i am not the owner of…As well as much of my online accounts being hacked….Here i am,months later,still very confused…I have tried my best but i simply do noy have the knowhow or ability to figure any of this stuff out…If ANYONE can help me figure this stuff out Im humbly asking for your help…Really all i know is whenever ive tried to access this godaddy site ive recieved an error code and have been blocked from access…ANY help would be more appreciated than u could ever know! Thank You and God Bless

131 katherine

Good for you, It’s nice to know that there are people out in this world wide web tha do look out for the kim’s of this world. She’s lucky to have you in her corner.

Kim, chin up. You certainly don’t need people like that in your life. You go girl!!! I believe in Karma and it looks like karma is biting them both in the ass. That’s what you get for trying to screw good people.

Sorry for the potty mouth, but it had to be said.

Take Care

Oh my god, the world needs more fearless friends like you to stick it to the bottom feeders of the world . God bless you , I was kind of on the fence about signing up with but after reading this I’m signing up for sure. Just as soon as I get some funds I’ll be there .

You’all beware of this jokester. he set up an affiliate site for 30 days using and then screwed everyone that signed up. I only lost $112. I have his contact info if anybody wants it. Thanks Shoe!! You’re the BOMB BABY!!!!!!!!!
