If a naked stranger arrives at your door in the middle of the night, here’s what you should probably do: 1) Make sure he is, in fact, a naked stranger, and not a merman who fell in love with you 15 years ago during a vacation to Cape Cod (in which case, NBD). 2) Call the police. 3) Call Jason Willis’ probation officer and tell him that his client is violating his parole. 

ABC news affiliate WISN 2 reports that Willis, a 31-year-old man from Waterford, Wisc., has been banned from the Internet for posting a Craigslist sex ad in his female neighbor’s name, sending a parade of naked strangers to her door.

In addition to being banned from the Internet, Willis has also been sentenced to 2 and a half years probation, and will go to jail for 18 months if he violates his parole. 

According to Willis’ neighbor Dawn (WISN only identifies her by her first name, to protect her identity), Willis posted the ads in her name a year and a half ago as a “prank.” For months, Willis would send naked men over to Dawn’s apartment from his computer next door, occasionally even watching the men ring her doorbell. She still has nightmares about strange men pulling through her driveway.

“It was just a joke to him. To me, that’s not my idea of a joke. It’s not my idea of a prank. You don’t send men to a single woman’s home with her daughter there,” Dawn told WISN.

Shockingly, this is not the first time that someone has posted a Craigslist sex ad in someone else’s name as a prank, or as a form of creepy revenge. Last year, a Library of Congress employee was busted for posting a Craigslist casual encounters ad directing men to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment, and a Pennsylvania teen girl was also arrested for posting a prostitution ad on behalf of another teenage girl that same year.
