Strangers bombard man's phone after mystery signs appear in NYC

Posted: Updated:

A Miami waiter is getting a lot of phone calls from strangers in New York City.

The calls are being prompted from signs that are popping up across the city.  They look like advertisements for a man who wants a date.

The stark pieces of paper read:  "If anyone wants to talk about anything, call me."  There is a phone number and it is signed:  "Mark...One lonely guy."

And they appear to be working.  Mark Kilburn, 48, has been getting calls every day for the past several weeks.  He estimates that he's getting about 20 calls a day.

The only problem is that Kilburn is not posting the signs.

"I'm positive it's my ex-wife putting up these signs," Kilburn says.  "I mean, she's done so many creative things to harass me over the last year that there's no question in my mind it's her."

Kilburn and his then-wife had a bitter split about seven years ago.  Since then, he claims that she has posted his number on Craigslist and given his e-mail address to Publisher's Clearing House.

He estimates that she puts up 2-3 signs a day in New York City and claims they have been spotted hundreds of miles from the city.  One even turned up in Miami.

"I guess my ex-wife must've been on vacation in Miami," Kilburn says.

Kiburn says he's taking the situation in stride and says he's going to hang onto his current number.

"I think if I did change it she would somehow get my new number," Kilburn says.

Kilburn says he hasn't spoken to his ex-wife in years.  Fox 5 News was unable to locate the woman for comment or confirmation.
