Domain was intercepted by competitors: Black competition, or fighting with pоrn

I developed a web site that served my customer faithfully for three years. I changed my field of activity, but I regularly paid for the domain.
This summer, the customer said: "PleaseWTF, don't pay for the domain name anymore, we are developing another website, and we are rebranding the company." I stopped paying...
I agree, yes. I'm stupid, and I couldn't have foreseen such consequences.

In due course, the domain name was intercepted by competitors. They did not try to be wise, but simply posted a lot of pоrn videos on the domain, and several hundred keywords in the topic. Yeah, to index better.

But that's not even the catch. The web site, in conjunction with the working phones of customers and their names, for three long years has been scanned up and down by robots aggregators of various Internet catalogs.
To be more precise, right now it is in 4029 directories.

I will not disclose the site for friends. Don't be angry, it's for the safety of you (oh, them) themselves, because there is a suspicion of viruses.
Please enlighten me about the measures to rescue my former, but beloved, customers from the abyss of pоrn-achtung.

I once solved a client's problem with his web site, from which he did not have access (the old contractor did it, did not give him the keys, he did not ask for it himself, and then the old contractor disappeared, despite the fact that the site remained).
So he wanted to restore access over his web site. Where I just didn't write how I just didn't try to hook the site. The client promised that he would thank me well for my help with money (without specific amounts, of course).

After I failed, he disappeared from the horizon. I asked him to at least pay something symbolically, because for about a month I was picking with this bullshit. He ignored me.
Despite the fact that initially I did not want to do this business, because the chances were initially very low. I fell for his tearful requests and promises of golden mountains. Since then - either clear agreements and prepayment, or fuck it. I don't need it, these are his problems that appeared because of his stupidity.
