An 18-year-old woman has spoken out about the horror of becoming an internet sex symbol after her photo account was hacked as a young teen.

Angie Varona changed schools twice because of constant bullying after lingerie and bikini photos of her spread online in 2007, when she was just 14 years old.

Ms Varona uploaded racy photos to image-sharing website Photobucket with the intention of sending them only to her then-boyfriend, US network ABC reports.

Some of the images were even doctored to make her appear topless, she said.

She was repeatedly called a "slut" and a "porn star" at her high school after the photos spread online, prompting her parents to call the FBI.

She said the pressure resulted in her turning to drugs and running away from home.

"[People were] telling me that I deserve everything that's going to come for me, that they're going to rape me when they see me because I want it and because I ask for it," she said.

"Someone found out my address and everything ... threatening me, saying that they know where I live."

"There's not really a lot you can do with that because it's not child pornography I guess, it's more child erotica, that's what they classified it as," she said.

Ms Varona thought the unwanted attention would come to an end after a while, but the problem has only worsened, she said.

A recent Google search of "Angie Varona" drew almost 65,000 images.

Ms Varona said she now regrets ever putting the photos online and now will not use a Facebook account for fear it could be hacked.
