Purely Hosting cannot or will not make my website's control panel available to me, Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In May,2012 I paid Purely Hosting $213.00 to develop and host a website for me.  This was in response to an email offer.

While I can get the website on my computer, I cannot get access to the cpanel using the username and password provided by them. I tried on three computers and two internet providers. They insisted in two emails that everything is working correctly.  Purely Hosting did not respond to my third email. 

In addition to the $213.00 I paid to Purely Hosting, I assume that they are making money off of "my" website since the advertisers do not have any information on me. I believe Purely Hosting has defrauded me.

Soon after receiving the website I received an offer to SEO the site.  I have not found my site listed on any search engine. Alexa has no data on the site. This SEO company is at the same street address as Purely Hosting but a different office number.  This appears to be a second fraud from the same address.
