Is it illegal for a company specializing in SEO/Social Media to threaten a Negative SEO campaign against their client and it's CEO? We have a dispute on work performed, and we said: We're going to dispute with the venders we paid through, note it on yelp, file for small claims court
, and should the court disagree, we'll correct yelp, and end the card disputes."
We are in California, they are in NY.Their owner said: Okay well then I will respond to the disputes, provide proof that work was completed, proof of communication
and then I will launch a full SEO campaign on (name of co) and (name of ceo) so every time someone even as little as Google's you or your company, they know who they are dealing with.
My offer was fair. If you escalate it to that point, I will respond 10x over. You are attempting to steal from me.
I will give you one last chance to think it over. If you make me jump through hoops to prove the work, I will do so AND I will do everything in my power to go against you and Company.
All of this can be avoided. You are the one who decides whether or not that happens.
I don't feel like disputing charges and doing negative SEO. I don't want to do that at all. However, I will if you try to steal from me.
Hopefully you make the right decision. My offer still stands but you need to decide now.
If I see ONE false dispute filed, you will be attempting to steal from me and then things will become much much worse. Don't take it to that point.
