FORT WORTH (KDAF) — Someone once said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

That’s especially true for those in rocky relations. Seems like scorned lovers will say or do just about anything to get even with their exes.

But lately folks have turned to more modern methods to air their dirty laundry, and believe us, it can get pretty filthy.

In what prosecutors call a first for Tarrant County, a man was recently sentenced for hacking into his ex-girlfriend’s email and sending out videos of their sexcades to folks in her contacts list.

That dirty deed earned Philip Ingram five years probation.

While some are willing to break the law, others are using legal websites to seek retribution.

But using revenge sites and social media to post pics of former lovers in compromising positions can come with some backlash.

Just ask Facebook. A Houston woman is suing the company for $123 million after her ex created a Facebook page using her name, her face and a lot of naked photoshopped pics.

Good luck with that. Turns out, there aren’t any laws against it here in Texas.

She would’ve had a better shot if she lived in California, New Jersey or Arizona.
