What if someone brought 3-4 domain names, built up thousands of BAD/CHEAP backlinks for the domain names and then weponised them by permanatly redirecting them to a target website?

@hitchhiker - Don't think so, sorry. But feel free to try your theory on eBay, craigslist and see how it affects their rankings.
Well, you can't have it both ways. Either your theory works or it doesn't. Sorry.
However, advising others that all they have to do to game Google is spend $100 on negative SEO is "pie in the sky" (at best)
Ethics aside, if it were that easy to sink the competition and restore ranking, why don't you do it?This is not a constructive argument: "if it's possible why don't you do it?"
OP - it seems your best bet is to try and beg \Google to take a look at your case and see if they can manually fix this.
@play_bach if you aren't worried about negative seo you could always expose your site here and we can have a bash at it for you? Just to see if it works.

I would say atleast 60 to 70 percent of sites can be taken down with well planned negative link campaign
Since no action was taken, I contacted the host again and they advised me to file a DMCA request. I did this and the offending pages were removed very quickly.
