EBay Inc on Wednesday reported lower quarterly net profit, sales and profit margins, but results beat Wall Street expectations and shares of the online auctioneer rose nearly 6 percent. The company, which announced last week a plan to spin off its Skype Web telephone business, said first-quarter net profit was $357 million, or 28 cents per share, down from $460 million, or 34 cents per share, a year earlier.

Getting revenge on a cheating ex is priceless, but a Florida woman has taken it to a whole new level, while making a few bucks at the same time.

After discovering that her beau had been cheating on her, a 26-year-old Boca Raton woman named Taylor is selling his belongings on eBay and on her website, MyExBoyfriendsCloset.com, with racy pictures of her meant to make him suffer just that little bit more.

"I've never done anything like this. I mean, honestly, I'm not a vindictive person by any means, but when you spend five years of your life giving to somebody and giving to somebody, and then they turn around and do that to you, it started out as a way to get back to him," she recently told CBS Miami.

She said just before Christmas, both a friend and a neighbour informed her that her boyfriend, who she had been living with for five years, was cheating. She kicked him out of their house and began selling his stuff soon afterward.

And why is she posing half-naked in pictures with the items she's selling?

"He preferred that I be a lot more conservative and didn't like for me to dress sexy," she told the New York Post. "So now I'm saying, 'Ha, ha, you don't have a say-so any more."

So far, Taylor has sold 15 shirts, several pairs of pants, hats and belts for about $1,000 (U.S.), according to the New York Post.

"My goal is to SELL EVERYTHING! So PLEASE bid and help me piss him off!!!" she wrote in one of the postings.

Nothing brings out a flair for revenge like being scorned, whether it's a woman eating her ex's goldfish or turning a former lover into a mocking meme.
