Man Seeking Revenge Makes Fake Facebook and Twitter Accounts Posting Ex's Nude Photos
This is my (and I'm sure everyone else's) worst nightmare realized.
In Minnesota, a 20-year-old man has been charged after creating fake Facebook and Twitter accounts under his ex-girlfriend's name and using them to post naked pictures of her.
Christian Richard Montgomery was charged with stalking with intent to injure, criminal defamation and identity theft.
The ex-girlfriend became aware of the accounts and notified police on May 9th that naked photos taken by Montgomery had been posted. The woman also told police that Montgomery threatened to create the accounts after she told him she was no longer interested in seeing him.
Montgomery eventually admitted to the behavior when questioned by police, explaining that he was mad at his ex-girlfriend and wanted to embarrass her.
Fortunately for the victim, the fake Facebook account had only attracted 11 friends... But the fake Twitter account had at least 50 followers. Although the numbers are considerably small, the damage something like this could have caused could never be justified.
I find this particularly interesting because there are SO many people that make fake Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts - especially pretending to be celebrities- and I imagine they have no idea that their stalker-like actions are actually considered identity theft.
The moral of the story though, is stop being a fucking creep.
