This matter appears to have all the indications of extortion, assault and likely other criminal conduct under South Carolina law.
My advice is to contact the Saluda County Solicitor's Office, which is part of the 11th Circuit in SC. Their office is in Lexington at 205 East Main Street, telephone 803-785-8285. File a complaint and get law enforcement on this right away.

AVVO's computer read "a lien" as a typo for "alien" and placed your question in the immigration law forum. Try re-posting your question with different phrasing.
This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A consultation with an experienced attorney is always the best way to go.
