Woman's Facebook pictures stolen, used to advertise prostitution

Woman's Facebook pictures stolen, used to advertise prostitution

Here's another sad tale of Facebook security problems.

A woman named Dallas Miller suddenly found her personal Facebook pictures used in an ad for prostitution.

Miller, 21, told ABC affiliate WKRN.com that she absolutely did not create or post that ad on the Web. Instead, she says almost a dozen of her photographs were stolen off her Facebook page and used in prostitution advertisements on the free ad-listing site Backpage.com.

"It's been tough," Miller, who lives in Whites Creek, Tenn., told the news outlet of the experience. "I definitely feel victimized."

Backpage.com has reportedly pulled the ads off its site.

Huffington Post has more on this story.

You need to lock down your Facebook now to prevent this from happening to you. Here's how to make yourself safe on Facebook.
