When one woman caught her boyfriend being unfaithful, she decided to get her own back in the most delightfully petty way.
After kicking her partner Nathan out of her house, 29-year-old Lauren Lilley, from Salisbury, Wiltshire, decided to 'hit him where it hurt', by splurging an eye-watering £500 on the movies from his Amazon Prime account.
What's more, many of the films she bought hinted at infidelity, including Cheater, The Unworthy and Liar.
Lauren said: "A couple of days later after crying and being a mess, I realised I was still logged into his Amazon Prime account.
"I just thought after everything I've been put through for over two years, and he doesn't care for what he's done, I knew where to hit him where it hurt - in his bank balance. I knew that was the way to hit him."
She added: "I didn't want to buy films he would benefit from. I ventured into the Bollywood scene.
"He was at work so I knew he wouldn't be on his phone to get alerts. I realised they've got really authentic names. I started seeing stuff like Cheater.
"I knew he'd be able to get his money back, but to be at work, freezing cold, in the middle of nowhere, to then look at your bank balance and how much has gone out, [I knew] his a**e was going to fall out.
"I knew he'd eventually get refunded. In the meantime, I knew his a**e would drop through and he'd be gutted that his bank balance was dented."
Lauren says that she knows the move means her ex "won't forget me, ever'.
Nathan had been at work at the end of November when he claims he received a call from his bank's fraud squad, warning him of suspicious activity on his account.
While Nathan's bill was certainly a hefty one following Lauren's shopping session, she says her 26-year-old ex has since been in touch to 'commend' her for her creative vengeance, calling it 'f***ing brilliant'.
Speaking after the incident Nathan admits it was "fair enough" that Lauren wanted to get back at him over his actions, but says thankfully only £245 of the £500-spend went through as his bank realised the transactions were not his.
"I had a phone call from the bank fraud squad to say someone was using my bank card," he says. "I got emails to say all of these DVDs had been ordered. Around £245 went through.
"That was around half then the bank stopped the rest after realising it was fraudulent. Amazon Prime refunded me. My account was logged in but she didn't have my permission to buy things off that account."
Despite seeing the funny side of the ordeal, Nathan says he has now blocked his ex on all his accounts.
Lauren, from Salisbury, Wiltshire, said: "It's creative way to get back at someone. I had fun doing it.
"I'm definitely going to tell the grandkids about it. I was a scorned woman. I chose to sit back, have a condor moment and buy loads of Bollywood movies.
"Two weeks later he called me up and was like 'You know what, I did deserve this. That was the best way and most hilarious way anyone's got back at me. You should be proud of yourself.'
"He was commending me. [He said] 'fair play Lauren, that was f***ing brilliant and I'll never forget that.'"
Lauren and Nathan were together for two years, and while a lot of her pals had doubts about the relationship, she says she believes she was "blinded by love".
Nathan, from North Yorkshire, said: "When I saw the names of the DVDs, I thought it was quite hilarious. I handled it with good humour.
"She was trying to get back at me. It's fair enough. It was quite understandable.
"We're both away from each other [now]. [I have an] easy life."
