    A client just fucked me out of $8000 and I'm real pissed. I'm not saying that I intend to do anything malicious but I thought I'd drop a line in here and see if anyone had any suggestions of a way for me to exact my revenge. They were a design company and I have access to their web server as well as most of their clients' servers.

    All ideas welcome :)

    I'm in a similar, but less costly, boat. I'm going to take out a civil warrant on the guy's company soon if he doesn't pay.

    I do hope that you have proof of the amount that is owed to you. I would get a lawyer too.

    I've contacted a debt collection agency but I have a sneaking suspicion that my invoices aren't going to show up on the client's books. Worse still, the two sites I built have been up for months and since I was subcontracted by the design agency to build them, and the site owners paid the design agency, I can't even take the sites down.

    Apparently I made the age old mistake of trying to be a nice person and being understanding when the client "cried poor" when they clearly had no intention of paying me at all...

    Ahh... THAT mistake. :D (Been there, done that)

    You have forgotten the basic rule: "ALL clients are total idiots and probably crooks as well"

    If you have access to the server then take down the work you have done and replace it with kiddie porn and links to terrorist websites. :D

    I realise my original post was made at the height of my frustration, but I have to add, this forum has reminded me of one thing

    "Never, never, never give up."

    Thanks BHW :)

    Onward and upward in 2009!

    Yeah but do it from a laptop on the WiFi of a coffee shop far from your office or house.

    Then destroy the laptop.

    Well... it's very hard to give a solid answer... so I'll just say go through the process legally... and in the main time continue your business and learn from this. "Get a lawyer"... show them they can't get away.

    Why take immediate action.....
    Ive got a guy who i know oooo too much about and about 6 months ago now he hacked me server and deleted everything.
    So now im just sitting here waiting until he builds up something that he really loves and adores and then i will strike.

    Whats the point in striking now when hes expecting it.... when you can strike in a few months time and get him real bad :p

    Oh and you could even just cookie stuff all of the sites now and earn from that too.
