Okay so this is a bit complicated but please bare with me…I need help.
I owed this webdesigner: “Austin Passy”/Frosy Web Designs (www.frostywebdesigns.com) $300 for a website called Volume-pr.com/powered by WordPress. He helped create another website of mine called SwellCityGuide.com ..I was ALL PAID off on that. I don’t owe him any money for that website. I asked him to please be patient with the $300 and I even gave him a contract with my address promising that I will pay the $300 for Volume.
This guy went in and made himself the administrator and took down Volume and Swell City (the one I don’t owe money for). He blackmailed me and said “Pay atleast $50 or Swell City will stay down”. So I had to borrow $50 from a friend because I am literally broke until August 3rd. He still hasn’t put my Swell City website back up.
I feel like I was forced to pay $ (that I don’t have) to put my website back up that I don’t even owe him money for!! Is this ethical? I really feel like I’ve been bullied and it’s not like I didn’t plan on paying him. I did and I told him that.
How can I kick him out from being an administrator and messing around with my Swell City website? Granted, Volume can stay down but I don’t think it’s fair for him to be able to blackmail me and mess with my Swell city website.
Please help…any and all advice would be highly appreciated.
