How much is $315 worth to you?

For Alexandr Aliev, a 60-year-old Brighton Beach landlady, it was worth going to jail for.

According to the New York Post, Aliev was arrested for shoving a 21-year old renter down a flight of stairs at an apartment building on Brighton Beach Avenue near Brighton 4th Street on June 28. Aliev was enraged when the renter asked for a few more weeks to pay the $315 she owed.

Tragic as the incident may have been, it did prove one time-honored mobster tactic. After suffering a broken leg, the renter came up with the money.

You hear me, bill-skipping advertisers? You hear me?!

    Just an FYI – none of the delinquent advertisers have actually appeared on the site. They usually bailed after design work was done and not paid for. All the advertisers you see on the site are great businesses that have been a pleasure to work with.
