    Hey all,

    An ex-client of mine recently launched his new website - using an almost identical layout and design as the one I had created.

    When it came time for him to pay me the remaining $600 - he disappeared. No call/email for weeks.

    Now I see that his new website is online, so he must have hired another designer behind my back.

    I want to gain revenge, as this punk still owes me $600.

    His Youtube channel is his most prized asset. I want to send some fake views to his most popular videos, however on fiverr they claim to only be real views.

    What other options do I have when it comes to this?

    It's my first time doing something like this, so all ideas are welcome.

    Thanks,

    PicnicTable

    Sorry, but we do not allow the discussion of Revenge/Sabotage tactics on our forum.

    You can discuss possible avenues of taking LEGAL actions, but that is as far as it goes.

    - Thank You -

    Buy fake traffic from here and send it to his YT. Send loads of dislikes too if you want, that will negatively affect ranking.

    Your option is to pull up your pants and act like an adult and a business owner. You messed up, you didnt have a process in place to mitigate such a risk. Use tbis as a $600 business lesson amd institute a contract from now on.
    Word of warning the people here dont provide hacking advice, pursuing this conversation will get this thread banned.

    See if you can take a legal course and bear costs in the process, otherwise don't waste your time and energy

    You could just buy him a departure gift of some traffic from a BST thread here and buy him some youtube video views. This would just be to show him thanks for all the hard work he did for you, of course.

    You should have a legally binding contract in place for future projects.
