In a huge break in the story of web entrepreneur/fraud Chad Love Lieberman, Brian Sherwin has published an interview with Craig Pravda’s ex and mother of his child, who wishes to remain anonymous. (If you don’t remember, Craig Pravda was listed as the owner of MarkYourSpot.com, which was nearly identical to art4love.com, and was selling the same art stolen from online artists. When asked, Craig Pravda denied any knowledge of Chad Love Lieberman’s illegal activity, although for a time it was believed that Craig Pravda may have simply been an alias for Chad Love Lieberman, as the two bear a striking resemblance. There has also been speculation as to whether or not Chad actually managed to make any money from his theft.) In it, she acknowledges that Chad and Craig were working together (and that they are, indeed, separate people), and hinted that Chad made a profit from his site, art4love.com, on which he sold stolen art.
“Art4love was Chad’s livelihood and Craig went along for the ride.”
Craig’s ex does not think that Chad and Craig will be punished, however. She implies that the two are “immature” and nothing but “schmucks”, almost as if that were a defense to trying to cheat hundreds of hard working individuals out of their livelihood.
“I believe this whole scandal will be a court room circus if it does go to court and nothing will come out of it.“
Sherwin also contacted several companies that Chad Love Lieberman claimed an association with, and wrote that each one that replied to him denied any business dealings with Lieberman, aside from having met him as Lieberman tried to pitch his website to them. Most of them seemed suitably unimpressed with Lieberman, calling him a “door-to-door salesman”, and admitting to doubts about his character upon meeting him.
They also indicated that they are working to have any press release posted by Lieberman that claims an association with them scrubbed from the internet.
Hobo Holiday–San Antonio
Sunday, 08/28/11, we will be having a hobo holiday in downtown San Antonio.
What is a hobo holiday? Simple—it consists of a camera, a destination, and a few free hours in which you have nothing planned except wandering around snapping photos of things that ordinarily you might never notice.
Anyone in San Antonio Sunday with a camera is welcome to join us. Just look for a couple of crazy women with cameras and silly hats.
