    Ok..before you guys start saying..."how can you be so stupid?...", let me confess. I was stupid. I am an article writer and I wrote a few for this guy who did not pay me. He is not from here (or at least not that I know of), so, can't take him to the shit list. I have created three blogs and have loaded all those articles onto them. I want to make sure that all the articles that I gave is of no worth to him. How do I do this? Give me some good 'Revenge' tips, blackhatters...

    Not a lot you can do. Can you take down the articles? Most of the content on the internet is found very quickly by Google so even sending the article everywhere won't help much.

    On a side note, any kind of revenge you get won't make a difference to your bank account, and to me, that matters more that how I feel about a guy who cheated me.

    I'd forget about revenge, learn from the experience (i.e., don't make the same mistakes again) and move on with life...

    Spam the article over the web? Give it away for free to relevant niches.... But thats only if you want revenge... Or you can even contact his host and explain that he is hosting your material and not his own and threaten with law suit etc etc.

    But yeah, how much did you lose?

    I always get payment up front for anything I am selling. This establishes a relationship by exchanging information, on paypal at least.

    But the best advice I can give is to find your article with copyscape and submit DMCA requests to get them taken down. If they don't respond then find out their hosting company and/or domain registrar and submit the request. I hate this shit but it works in your favour this time.

    Have you scammed anyone before? If yes, then consider this as that revenge. If Not, forget and get on with your life :)
    From next time take 50-60% advance :p before starting any work.
