Did you say they could not use them?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It was an agency, I sent them the photos so I could discuss possible work with them. After talking to them I realised I did not like them, and told them I would not work with them, despite this they have my photos up and when I asked for my photos to be removed, they said it will take a week or so to remove them. I told them I cannot wait a week because I dont want those sort of photos on thier site, and they are now refusing to remove it. They have also threatened me, saying they will "expose" my photos everywhere. I have issued a DMCA report and not sure what I should do.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I never once said they could us my photos or details, but I simply provided them with the photos so they could see what I looked like and all. Nothing more than that. They used the photos without even informing me.

Ok. Are you willing to bear the cost of going to court?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Depending on the cost.
