Revenge is a dish that should never be served via Craigslist. A Texas woman has been arrested for pretending to be her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend on the website and soliciting sexual encounters for her.
Samantha Weber, 38, was arrested and faces a felony charge of online impersonation after authorities determined an account registered to her was used to place a fake ad on Craigslist that solicited men to come to the home of Heather McCarthy for sex acts, according to My Fox Houston.
Eerily similar to a Law & Order: SVU episode, the station reported that a Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office investigator “obtained subpoenas and search warrants from Craigslist.com, AT&T Wireless and Google,” to determine the creator of the account after McCarthy complained to police about the men arriving at her home on April 18 for the sexual encounters.
“McCarthy was in fear for her safety when multiple men visited her home,” the station reported.
Her boyfriend, Weber’s ex-boyfriend, helped her fend off the unwanted visitors at her home and she told investigators that she did not place the ad on Craigslist.
