Ive lost control of my clan?

I created a clan when game launched. I just cane back to the game after a month hiatus and for some reason i am no longer the leader of my clan??

We are only two members in the clan and i am now the member and the other person the leader. I never game permissions for leadership change.

I paid to create this clan and now i no longer have control of it. The other member has been offline for a month so i can no longer contact him and i can no longer accept members in the clan.

What can be done this is frustrating as hell and i paid money to create my own clan. How did this happen??

My character name is makaveli and my clan is deathrow

I think there is a timer on clan leadership where the game will pass leadership to another member if the leader has been absent for a certain time.
