LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. —

A Lawrenceville woman claims her ex-boyfriend circulated, in public places across Gwinnett County, a provocative photo of her. The flyer also included her full name, address and phone number.

Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh sat down with the woman on Tuesday. She said this all started with a phone call from a man in mid-March and hasn't stopped yet.

"He said, 'I'm responding to your ad,'" the woman, whom Channel 2 Action News is not identifying, said.

She said the first call came March 16, and they haven't stopped since.

"There's an ad that I just found in Lowe's bathroom, and it has your body on it; it has your contact information," the woman quoted the man as saying.

Not knowing what was going on, she decided to meet the caller in a public place. She said at a gas station, a man handed her a flyer, then drove off.

"I said, 'Oh, my God. How did this get out?'" the woman said.

She told Kavanaugh she emailed the seminude image to an ex-boyfriend last summer. On the other side of the flier was her name, address and phone number.

She said she recently ended the relationship and believes the flier is retaliation.

"It just constantly rings. I'm getting text messages from people," the woman said.

She said men have found the flier at a Gwinnett County Lowes, Red Lobster and even a barber shop.

"They were hanged up and taped up," Cinahi Conrado, 17, said. He saw dozens of the fliers in the parking lot of Discover Mills Mall.

"Yeah, I wanted to help her because it was just weird to me," Conrado told Kavanaugh.

Conrado said after he heard the woman's story, he gathered all the fliers he found and threw them away.

"There was like, a hundred or more," Conrado said.

The woman said the flyer has her living in fear. She said some men have even come to her door.

"You have no idea. I am living in hell. I don't go outside," the victim said. "I don't go outside, because I'm afraid."

Kavanaugh confirmed with Lawrenceville police they are actively investigating the case. No one has been charged yet.

The woman has filed for a temporary protective order against her ex. A hearing on that is set for later this week.
