How is this a Facebook problem? Maybe I'm missing something here..

simple, refusing to take down the site until contacted by police.

If you ever have someone impersonate you in facebook, submit a report and have facebook take it down, unfortunately it takes facebook ages. the impersonator i reported is still up :(

Ridiculous to ask for so much, as if she was caused $123 million worth of damage.

u dont ask for what you want you ask for what u can negotiate down from to get what you want. otherwise u end up with nothing after legal fees

If the photos are fake whats the big deal. Oh, I know, shes trying to make bank.

so how do we know she didnt do this herself, hired someone else to post them/ photoshop them, then claim shes a victim of FaceBook ?

That's where an investigation will come into play. If she did do it she will be charged for it.

Yes sue everything!

People in the US is a mad bunch.

Well if its fake she has a right to sue that's the way our laws (edit >work<). I don't know about if its OK to photo shop someone who you sent the pics to but, if she sent the pics she lost all rights to them same as posting them on Facebook so. You give up the rights to photos once you post them on Facebook and or send pics to a friends phone. Had a big deal about a certain site grabbing pics of women on Facebook not to long ago, women contacted local police, in the local paper the police chief said what I stated above. Laws on this are still iffy.
