A competitor, who I used to be friendly with, did the following last night:
1) Posted my site as a FREEBIE site to about 6 popular bulletin boards
2) Hacked my vonage account and redirected calls to him
3) Hacked parts of my site to display his graphics and contact info
I've covered up all the holes, and fixed all the redirects, but the damage has been done.
Do I have any recourse? Do I call the cops? He's in a another city/state, which cops do I call? Or is this a civil thing. At the least he's guilty of "restraint of trade" but it may be more than that.
Any tips or advise is greatly appreciated.

A competent lawyer (probably not your small-town guy) will also advise on the criminal offences he's committed.
