my ex employer is giving me a bad referral

My ex-employer is preventing me to get a job. About 5 months ago, I left her company for a better pay AND benefits. Now that I'm searching for a new job, she is giving me a bad ref., implying that I lied on my resume. I didn't even got paid for my vacation, just to compensate her for my abrupt leave. All the jobs that I've applied to (w/ the requirements of contacting my previous employer)she tries to sabotage, even inquisiting & listening in my ex-coworker (the one i put for references)when someone calls regarding about me. What action can I do to prevent her from doing this? I was told that what she's doing is illegal, is this true?
