Kathy Rowe was reportedly so furious at missing out on the Carmel Valley property that she impersonated the new owner in a sexually-explicit online ad.

Police became involved over worries the ad could have incited someone to attempt to rape the new homeowner.

In the ad she asked men to ‘force their way’ into the property and ‘take me while I say no’.

She titled the ad ‘The Carmel Valley Freak Show’, encouraging men to contact the woman for sex when her husband was working.

After receiving several responses, Rowe allegedly told one of the men ‘to just stop by any Monday-Friday 9am-3pm.’

Prosecutors also allege Rowe took out advertisements listing the home as ‘for sale’.

She also sent valentines cards form the woman’s husband to local women.

Rowe has claimed her actions were just ‘prankish behaviour’.
