Grace Marr’s pictures were used to advertise a casual sex website. Now she’s calling on women to check their Facebook privacy settings
A university student was furious when she found her Facebook profile pictures had been stolen and used to advertise a ‘no-strings attached’ casual sex website.
Three pictures of Grace Marr, an English language student at Aston University, Birmingham, were used alongside a promotion offering ‘hot horny singles in your local area’.
Embarrassingly, she only found out they were being used when she was contacted by a friend of her mother, who told her he had seen the advert while surfing the Internet last month.
Miss Marr, 20, said yesterday she was horrified to find her pictures had been ripped off, and she warned other young women to be wary of their Facebook privacy settings.
She said: ‘It was after I had moved back to uni at the start of the new term.
‘I got a phone call from my mum’s friend who works at a computer company, and he said he saw my Facebook photos on a weird sidebar advert.
