    So basically I sold "something" on "tick" to a guy that hasn't paid me for it despite me asking (£20) and I'm not expecting a reply.

    As revenge I'm thinking of reporting him and his bf to the police,they sell the drug ghb and are heavy users of other drugs (their flat is full of it)

    If I did this,he would lose his business (either through jail or tag) lose his home (no rent money) and stop them upgrading their home (his kid lives in Manchester and they want him to come stay)

    His bf,aside from the above mentioned poverty and homelessness has priors and would almost certainly get jail time.

    So my question is,is my response to this situation excessive? Should I just let it go?

    I'm not a pushover but I don't want to get to much revenge if that makes sense.

    No the raid,seizures and jail/tag etc is purely for revenge not to get any money back,purely spite.

    how? it's not like he can take any moral high ground, He's willing to make someone lose their livelyhood, their home, their chance to be with their children all because they owe him £20 because he was stupid enough to sell on tick.

      Doesn't matter. They are still a blot on the community themselves. I'd do it even if they hadn't taken the £20.

      The bigger question is, would you report someone to the police if they were doing illegal activities, and by you doing so, it ruined their life? That's what he means by they ruined their own life.

      They have it and then give the money later, usually only really done between those who have dealt with each other before and can trust them to pay it...no point selling on tick to someone you dont trust, it's hardly a legally enforceable contract

      It's not like I gathered this info the last few days,they are both aware I know of their illegal activities and could use it against them which makes it even more stupid.

      I think I'm going to wait 2 more days and then ruin their lives.

      And also its not the sum of money it's the principle.
