How accurate are websites that display the shutter counts on DSLRs?

With curiosity as my motivation, I decided to obtain the shutter count on my 3 year old Nikon D300S. I used two online services. They both displayed the same count: ~28000! Before uploading the RAW photo, I carefully estimated the count at 4000 to 6000. I am amazed at the number. Do these online services reveal accurate information?
