(CBS) - L. Concetta Graves, a Florida woman who bares a resemblance to Casey Anthony, said she is continuously confronted by people angry at the verdict of the Casey Anthony trial.

When Graves runs errands, she puts her hair in a ponytail, puts on a baseball cap and some sunglasses. However, it is this look that causes people to look twice, reports local station KSN.

Graves told KSN that "some guy flung the door open real fast and he's, 'Oh my god, is that Casey Anthony?'"

This week, she was stalked by a man at her nearby post office who didn't believe her when she told him she wasn't Anthony. The week before Graves was walking with her brother in their neighborhood, which is on the same side of town as the Anthony's home, when three men in a pickup truck yelled "baby killer" and then attacked the two. D.M., Graves' brother, ended up with two black eyes.

"It's dangerous, it's scary, and if my story can help other people say before they react, 'Wait a minute, maybe that's not her', you know, then that's a good thing," says Graves.

On July 5,  Anthony, 25, was found not guilty of all felony charges in Caylee's death. The jury found her guilty of four charges of lying to law enforcement and she was released from the Orange County Jail on July 17.

Since her release, Anthony's whereabouts have remains a mystery, although entertainment website TMZ published photos last week that purport to show Casey Anthony out and about in Columbus, Ohio.
