Default Dirty tricks competitors do

Recently we talked about a situation where one lawn care business owner had his equipment and signs stolen by a competitor.

It made me think, what other situations have you run into or heard about on how competitors use dirty tricks to try and knock you out of the game.

I figure the more we all know about it, the better we can all defend ourselves against it.
