THE UNCERTAINTY AND THE, YOU KNOW, THE EMBARRASSMENT IS GREAT. I FEEL LIKE MY PRIVACY AND DIGNITY WERE TAKEN AWAY. AS YOU JUST HEARD. SHE SAID IT WAS AN INVASION OF PRIVACY AT A PLACE YOU NEVER EXPECTED. YOUNG COUPLE SAID THEIR INTIMATE PHOTOS WERE SWIPED AT A CAR DEALERSHIP AND SENT TO A SWINGER’S WEBSITE. WE ARE LIVE WITH THE STORY. BROOKE? Reporter: THEY FILED A LAWSUIT TODAY AND WALKED INTO THE DEALERSHIP TO PIE A CAR AND LEFT WITH THEIR PRIVATE PHOTOS IN CYBERSPACE. THERE WERE PICTURES MEANT ONLY FOR THEM. NEVER IMAGINED THAT ANYONE ELSE WOULD SEE IT AND CLAIRE AND TIM NEVER IMAGINED THE TWO NEAKSED PICTURES OF HER WOULD BE SENT TO AN E-MAIL ASSOCIATED WITH SWINGERS BY A SALES EMPLOYEE IN GRAPEVINE. IT HAPPENED NEARLY TWO YEAR AGO WHEN THEY WERE ABOUT TO BUY A CAR HERE. HE DOWNLOADED AN APP FOR PREAPPROVED FINANCING. THE SALES PERSON ASKED TO SEE THE APPLICATION ON THE PHONE AND THEN TOLD TIM AND CLAIRE, THAT HE NEEDED TO SHOW THE PHONE TO HIS MANAGER TO GET THE FINANCING APPROVED. IN THE FIVE MINUTE, THE PHONE WAS OUT OF SIGHT, NEW CAR SALES DIRECTOR MATT THOMAS FOUND THE OLD PICTURES AND ESM E-MAILED IT TO HIMSELF AND TO A A SWINGER WEBSITE. THIS PRIVATE MOMENT THAT WAS INTENDED TO REMIND US OF HAPPINESS TOGETHER WAS RIPPED AWAY WITH FEAR AND UNCERTAINTY. THEY SAY THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP DENIED THAT HE WORKED THERE. TEXAS TOYOTA HAS NEVER RESPONDED TO THEM. THOMAS IS NOW FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR BREACH OF COMPUTER SECURITY AND THE THEY HAVE FILED A CIVIL LAWSUIT.
