3. It's like this...
1). I built this restaurant's website a year ago, almost to the day.

2). The client is asking for the User ID and Password to the site because either she approached one of my competitors, or they approached her, and they did one of two things. They re-designed her menus or they re-designed her menus AND the Website.

3). By asking for the User ID and Password for the Website, the competitor will either monkey with my Website files or wipe them out completely, to be replaced with theirs.

4). So my client did business with a competitor, didn't even have a conversation with me before doing so (and I acknowledge she was under no obligation to do so), so I may have lost a client, and the competitor may have stolen some or all of my work in the process. I won't know until the client responds to my email and tells me exactly what has happened. At minimum, it's not good, because a competitor has successfully dipped their beak into my client's pond, so to speak. If they haven't re-designed the website yet, to squeeze me out, they probably will attempt it, now that they've done some work for the client.
