I suggest you call again and ask him to stay on the phone while you type in the username and password. Once you have control then transfer it away if you have that option. If he is a domain reseller then contact the company who he uses to register domains and I am sure they will be able to help also.
This would be my biggest complaint with some of the API software. The domain gets put in the reseller's account and not the customers! RR and PDQ give control to the "rightful" owner so that is one thing eNom did right.
You need to prove that you paid him for the domains. Did you fill out some type of order form? If so you need to bring that, along w/ proof of payment, to court and the judge should force him to release the domain to you. Or at the very least get your money back. But you need those two elements to prove your case.
The first step is to gain the username and login.
Next, immediately change the ownership/profile information to your own, including the email address information.
Make sure that you DO NOT have it on registrar lock.
Initiate transfer to another registrar or set up another account independent of the reseller you purchased through.
