GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Some young women in the Upstate say they have been publicly exposed and humiliated. They are unsure how to stop it.

Their pictures, many of them without their clothes, have showed up on a mysterious Facebook page. They do not know who started the page because the name on it is a fake.

FOX Carolina investigated the page and is keeping the information about it private in order to protect the women from more exposure.

Diana Watson sat down with one woman, who said she was 16 years old when she snapped a photo of herself without a shirt. She was in her bedroom and said she does not remember sharing it with anyone.

Soon after, she started getting text messages from various numbers with threats to post the picture on social media. She ignored the threats, but then it showed up on the mysterious site.

"I felt ashamed that somebody could have a picture of me like that. I felt just very violated," she told FOX Carolina.

The young woman and her mother have tried repeatedly to get the site shut down. So far, it has not happened. They said messages to the person or people running the page have led to angry responses and more threats.

"This person has her picture ... They have been tormenting her for three years, blackmailing her, trying to extort more pictures from her," the woman's mother said.

The mother also contacted Facebook and asked for the site to be pulled down. She received a message back that said the site did not violate the social media giant's policies. The family has also contacted the FBI in hopes of agents tracking down the person who started the site.

In addition, a Spartanburg man said he has his own issues with the site. His name is Jonas Rocho, and he said his photos appeared on the Facebook page as if he was the one running it. He also tried repeatedly to get it stopped. He was met with a block from the person who operates it.

For Rocho and the women, the hope is that the site will be removed, either by law enforcement or Facebook. They believe it crosses the line, leaving them feeling angry and violated.

"It's really disturbing to know that somebody could do that to somebody else," one woman said.

FOX Carolina has contacted Facebook about the page, but we have yet to hear back.
