Webmaster denies me access to my website and blackmails me

Hello dear ones

I have a question but it happened outside of Fiverr: My webmaster and I are having communication difficulties. I don’t know where my website is because of various transfers and he doesn’t send me a link, or the links don’t work. Either “not secure connection” or “page not found.” Now he wants 2700 € from me (it was agreed that I pay what I think is reasonable and can pay) and I already paid 1000 €. Of this, 200€ was for a transfer, which he also did, and the other 800€ for what else had to be done as a deposit. Now he wants me to pay 2,700 € otherwise he won’t finish his work (and I still have no access). I have been telling him for days that I don’t have access and that he should please send me a link/password/login, which he simply won’t do.
For me this is blackmail. Does anyone know about this? What can I do in such a situation?
Are there places where I can turn to?
Unfortunately, this did not happen here but on a 1:1 basis, so I am not protected by Fiverr. I would never ever book somebody again from outside private just because its a nice or competent person.

Thank you for your feedback. Kind regards

Nice and competent don’t blackmail.
As much as Fiverr says they have the sellers’ back, they have the buyers’ too.

I hope everything is resolved soon. All the best :frowning:

Thank you for your respond. Im happy because him and me solved it out, all good misunderstanding just a long one (all week long). But thanks all the Best for you :wink:
