Back in my adventurous college youth (12-13 years ago) I made a "sex tape" with my then college boyfriend. It was before everyone "knew better" and it was filmed on an old school VHS tape. After the break my ex assured me that he had destroyed the VHS tape. Now, 12 years later while searching my name (as I do sometimes since I have an online presence for my business) I found said sex tape... with my name attached and edited up on tons of amateur porn websites. I am absolutely beside myself and in no way EVER gave him permission to distribute that video. It was made for the 2 of us and was promised to have been destroyed. It is only a matter of time before others find the video as well and it is going to ruin my reputation and business image. I need advice on what legal action to take.I contacted a "revenge porn" victims advocacy group... they asked for a couple of links to the videos so they could track it and see how far it has spread. When looking at links, one link had photos attached to it. The photos were of me, passed out and naked from the waist down and being raped with a hair brush. I have contacted my local police in FL who tell me I need to contact the state police in PA who tell me I need to contact the local police in PA who tell me I need to contact the local police in Florida. I finally insisted on filing a report with the local police, but nobody seems to know what to do about the fact I was raped 10 years ago and the rapist posted the evidence on the internet. And I still can't find affordable legal representation... nobody is contacting me back.
