DARBY, Pa. (NBC) -- A 43-year-old Pennsylvania man says he is being bombarded with phone and Facebook messages because of his name -- Casey Anthony.

Casey Anthony, who lives in Darby, Pa., said he is receiving unwanted and sometimes hateful messages targeted at the other Casey Anthony, a 25-year-old Orange County Jail inmate who was recently found not guilty of killing her daughter.

Anthony said most of the messages come from people who are upset about the jury's verdict.

"I'm sitting back like, 'excuse me, I'm not the Casey Anthony you think,'" Anthony said.

Anthony said he now screens all of his calls and has spent hours deleted unwanted messages. He said he does not want his children to see or hear any threatening comments.
