CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Have you or someone you know ever cheated? Perhaps your spouse or significant other?

If the answer is yes, there's a chance millions already know the story.

That's thanks to a few websites that expose alleged cheaters across the country, and many of them are right here in the Tri-State.

Messy break ups can be rough. Now, websites like dontdatehimgirl.com and cheaterville.com let you expose an ex who did you wrong without holding back.

Users post comments claiming their exes are liars, thieves, adulterers and even sometimes carriers of an STD --- But is all fair in love and war? 38-year-old Eric Moore says no way.

"It's like you're under attack!" said Moore.

Moore is listed on cheaterville.com as a 'fake artist', a post that has been viewed over 3 million times, claiming he cheats on the both the IRS and his girlfriend.

"Just sounds like something made up that might scare somebody or have an impact. Smudge somebody's name.  Me and a friend are looking at going to the police," added Moore.

FOX19 spoke with the creator of cheaterville.com, James McGibney, who says it's all legal.

"We're protected by the Communication Decency Act of 1996, such as Facebook and Twitter. We're not the ones providing the information, therefore we're not liable for it," explained McGibney.

He created the site after he found out his friend's wife cheated on him while they were serving overseas.

"She actually got pregnant by the other guy. We thought wouldn't it be cool to warn others about people like this," he said.

With over 1 million users, Cheaterville.com is a single woman's weapon in the dating world.

"It's absolutely a helpful tool. You'll be surprised how many married men are out there posing as single," added McGibney.

McGibney says 81% of the people posted about on the site are women. Out of that number, 50% are women who 'out' other women.

Although McGibney is not liable for anything written on the site, he does urge that whatever you do post, make sure it isn't lies, because the person you're writing about can absolutely sue you.
