Dallas retiree Elaine White believes her address has been erroneously posted online somewhere and is connected to some seedy scam.

While else would stranger after stranger be showing up to her front door looking for sex workers?

Unfortunately, that is a current problem for the 66-year-old.

White told NBC DFW these events started happening last year, and they’ve been nonstop ever since, with the latest “John” knocking on her door just last week.  “I’m frustrated. I’m irritated and I’m beyond done,” she said.

To say White is fed up would be an understatement.

“How can a grown man go to a house in a neighborhood thinking they’re gonna get sex?” she asked herself. “As many hookers and prostitutes there are, go get one. Leave me alone. I’m not here for that.”

She started confronting the men showing up to her door, looking for a “Kelly,” “Nikki,” sometimes even a “Rhonda.”  She put up homemade signs in her yard stating none of those women live here, and despite filing police reports with Plano Police, White says officers arrive quickly but have not arrested any of the men.

Exasperated, White added an additional sign saying that she is armed.

“Yes, I have my Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum loaded 4-inch barrel next to me and I answer the door with it,” she said.
