    So I was thinking of getting revenge on my ex (who cheated on me, played mind games, excessively lied, etc) by creating a fake Craigslist ad with his picture on it and his phone number so he'd get calls from skeezy guys looking to hook up with him.

    So my question is, is there anyway for this to backfire? And by backfire I mean him being able to prove that it was me who made the ad? Also, is it illegal to do this/any legal consequences?


    Also what are some other revenge ideas to try if this one isn't such a good idea? Something that is legal and inconspicuous, so my ex gets whats coming to him but doesn't know that its from me. Any thoughts?


    What have you guys done to get back at ex partners? Was it worth it/not worth it? What was the result?

    Probably. Almost certainly, in fact. The best revenge: forget about him and move on.

    And tell me, how does that make you any better than him? The way it backfires is that you are delaying the process of moving on. Don't go there ,take the high road and let it go. You have to live with yourself the rest of your life and you don't want yourself to be a nasty bitter vengeful person.

    Dude, honestly revenge is never the option, you can do it, but that wont make you a better person, that wont make you recover him, that will make you as bad as him or maybe worst.

    I know is hard, but with time you'll get over it and even find someone better.

    All what you can do is wait for Karma, karma exist, and don't worry because he is going to pay.

    If you really want to have a revenge, wait for Karma.

    Don't do it, you'll damage your own personal history. There may very well come a day when someone you care deeply about finds out and walks out of your life. You need to be able to look back at this with the knowledge that you comported yourself with integrity.

    Its just not worth the effort... stick with the old saying: "Karma is a bitch." Believe me, I've seen it bite everyone who has sought out the negative.

    The best revenge is to go on and live a happy and productive life without him. I am pretty sure that he will figure out that you had something to do with the fake Craigslist caper you were fantasizing about. Can you handle the consequences of his retaliation against you? Be a bigger man and just walk away from this.

    I second to that motion, it only make you seem jealous or just plain stalking, why give him attention, wash your hands and walk away from it....... but i doubt a gay man wants to hear that....lol So much drama in the gay world....

    This can be considered as a cyber crime, so legally you could be in trouble. But you can scratch his name in a gay toilet and let creeps call him. No way to detect back to you.
    Either way it will make you feel good but not the way you would want to. Perhaps one day you might even regret doing it, so why do something you might regret one day.

    We reap what we sow. And, if you want to plant these seeds of discontent and resentment, you just might find yourself wishing for "crop failure".

    Let it go. Let him go. Find a way to forgive him...not for him but for YOU.

    Carrying resentment is like drinking poison hoping that somebody else will die.

    You'll only hurt yourself.

    Be the better man.

    Living a good life is the best revenge you can have on anyone who has done you wrong.

    Not a good idea. Being happy yourself is the ultimate revenge, fella icon_smile.gif

    It's not worth it. As someone who went through a horrible break up, watching his life fall apart later because he treated everyone in relationships the same way while I found a wonderful boyfriend and increased my circle of friends (while his dwindled down to maybe 5) was much better revenge than all the horrible things I could have done. And just thinking about those things delayed my recovery.

    Don't do it. Time was wasted, you learned a lesson. If he really is this big of a prick, he'll suffer eventually. Trust me. icon_biggrin.gif

    You'll end up hurting yourself more than you hurt him.

    Also, despite what you think craigslist posts are traceable through the IP address of the poster which is a unique identification provided to your internet provider.. you could open yourself up to a liability lawsuit if he wanted to cause you more harm.

    Everyone here is giving you good advice.. don't dig a deeper hole for yourself and just move on and if necessary avoid him until you recover.. it will happen eventually even if right now you cant see a day that would ever happen

    Craigslist ads collect and display the IP address of the poster. Yes... they can find you if they wanted to.

    Plus, you need access to the email address for the ad to be able to "verify" the ad.

    Stupid idea. Just forget about him...

    dude, get on with you life. you have already wasted enough time with your ex. why give him anymore time of your life. i understand you got hurt but at the end of the day what difference is going to make? you two are no longer together so why bother. it just makes you look pathetic by trying to retaliate after you two have broken up. take my advice move on dude

    So you got done dirty, dude. That really sucks and all but you should really be the bigger man and just move one. Playing games like posting a fake ad on Craigslist is pretty childish. Serious. You are better then that.

    Also last time I checked using someone elses photo without their permission is a pretty bad thing, hence illegal.
