Default Blackmailed from a company

Hi,

I purchased few services from a company named "I'll name later!", and I had a dispute regarding the services and the payments. they threatened me that "we will inform NRMP and all programs that you are trying to blackmail us"!!!! and asked for more money!

I'm sure that I didn't do anything wrong or illegal; but anyone knows if they can harm my application by false allegations?
I have all the emails and communications in case I need to explain to anywhere but I'm not sure if I need to explain to anyone (and who!)

any suggestions guys?

What exactly did you purchase from them? What did they say they will do?

don't pay for a third party company to do what you should be doing yourself. easy enough.
