A jealous husband faces legal action after setting up a website accusing his wife of conducting an affair with a senior employee of the Royal Mail.

To make matters worse, the unnamed man, who lives in the midlands, sent an email to chief executive Adam Crozier and other senior managers of the Royal Mail alleging that their colleague performed sex acts on his (i.e. the jealous guy's) wife on company premises. The revenge email contained a link to the web site.

Now the Royal Mail is mulling over legal action against the revenger. It is also investigating how he obtained the email addresses of the managers.

The target of the email is already taking legal action against its author, the Birmingham Post reports.

Sex, Text and Revenge

Last year, Philip Nourse, 21, a student was jailed for five months, for taking revenge on his cheating girlfriend.

Nourse illegally obtained text messages sent by the girlfriend from two friends who worked at O2; then he altered the victim's Friends Reunited account to show a photograph of the pair having sex; and then he set up a website showing video footage of him engaged in sex acts with the 19 year-old air stewardess.

Nourse then hacked the girl's email account and sent an email to her friends directing them to website. He also printed 50 "explicit" posters of the girlfriend which he had planned to put up in her home town.

This sorry tale was the inspiration for 50s pulp fiction book cover pastiche displayed on our magnificent Register t-shirt, Sex, Text and Revenge. ®
