    I am having an issue with an SEO customer of mine in which they haven't paid their bill in 2 months and is ignoring me. We have ranked there site quite well for a very competitive term. I dont want to just quit doing SEO because that would be a HUGE waste of time, effort, and money. I still have access to his FTP and email with GoDaddy. What I wanted to do was log into his godaddy and move the domain to m account but I don't know his customer number and the email registered with the domain is different than the one I have access too... sooo.. I am left with possibly doing a 301 redirect to my domain (I will register for this). What I am wondering although this is the method suggested by Google what happens if he changes the forwarding 7 days later? 2 months later?.. Does he in theory still have control of the rankings once he just turns off the redirect?

    If anyone has ideas for making this work I would appreciate it.
