GREENSBORO, N.C. - A billboard on a main thoroughfare in Greensboro is attracting a lot of attention. 

UPDATE: Busted husband billboard leads back to one NC man

The sign on Battleground Avenue reads: "Michael — GPS Tracker — $250, Nikon Camera with zoom lens — $1600, Catching my LYING HUSBAND and buying this billboard with our investment account – Priceless. Tell Jessica you're moving in! – Jennifer."

This could be a publicity stunt for a brand new billboard or it could be real.

On Wednesday, the CBS TV station in Greensboro found a lot of people were curious about the message that appears on both sides of the new billboard on Battleground Avenue.

"I thought it was kind of ingenious, then I was wondering if it was actually real," said Wil Gibbs. "I'm not sure if it was somebody actually doing it, but if it is, she got him."

"I don't know if it's true or not, but it kind of makes me laugh...if it's true, it also makes me kind of sad. But it's clever," said Annie Roberts.

"I actually had a friend of mine send it to me on Facebook earlier today, and I was on my way over here to meet some friends and I thought I'd take a good look at it for myself when I got here," said James Bohannon.

"I think that Michael has a tough couple of weeks coming," said Gibbs.

WFMY-TV was unable to determine how much the billboard actually costs, but they did check with their sales department, which has purchased billboards in the past.

Billboards typically cost somewhere between $2,000 and $2,200 a month for one side. This message from "Jennifer" is on both sides of the billboard.

The News & Record of Greensboro called the company that owns the billboard, Outdoor Signage, to find out if the sign is real. 

Outdoor signage referred questions to Marty Kotis of Kotis Properties, who WGHP reported actually owned the billboard and some restaurants in the area.

Kotis had not responded to the News & Record's messages as of Thursday afternoon.
