I recently had a competitor of mine scrape my customer DB, specifically their email addresses and proceed to spam them. Nothing out of the ordinary here, its nothing I wouldn't do myself but then I figured this guy is stealing my customers that ive spent a good deal of time collecting, mostly WH site but with some BH promotion. First thing I did, cos I didn't wanna over-react to what is effectively a pretty minor thing, I emailed them to ask for an apology. Hey I figured if I get an apology that would be a result. They didn't reply to my request of an apology.... So I complained to his host and to his ISP in the hope that he would get cut off from his ISP for a little while and possibly have something happen to his hosting. So far the webhost has replied stating that the guy has confirmed he sent out 80 emails and that they are working on apology to be sent directly to me. This competitor is no small fish, they rank pretty high and have been around for a good few years so if anything I should have been scraping their database. I originally just wanted them to admit what they had done but instead of doing that they ignored me. Now they have admitted guilt Im wondering how far I could push this. The spam they sent out had no unsubscribe link or anything of the sort and was pretty misleading, usual spam I guess only this was targetted. I have proof they did it in the form of IP logs of 19k pages in less than an hour (heavy browsing eh ) and I also have my own email addy in the DB so I get spammed and know exactly where its coming from etc. How far do you guys think I could push this? Not only have they stolen my data and done a mini-Dos on my server they have under taken an illegal spam campaign.
