A builder from whom I have withheld a final payment until shoddy work is put right is blackmailing me.
He says that unless I pay him £4000 he will contact Air BnB and tell them that my place is a danger to life ( it isn’t) He is saying that if there were a landslide the guests would be killed. He has no evidence of this. I have no evidence that it wouldn’t happen , other than I have planning permission for the property.
I have another listing as well which he is not going to complain about. But will Air BnB suspend both listings?
Together they are my only income and the blackmailer knows this. I will go to the police but this won’t help me suddenly having no income.
I don’t know what to do. Should I phone Air BnB myself and tell them what he says?
I would really appreciate some advice. Thanks.
