A 73-year-old Daytona Beach man was banned from all Volusia County beaches Saturday after he was caught handing out business cards that said, "Sugardaddy seeking his sugarbaby", according to a report from WFTV.

A mother complained about to Basaraba to local police after he handed the card to a 16-year-old - Basaraba says he tries to be careful to not hand out the card to minors. The report said that Basaraba then told the underage girl "you would be flawless".

He is accused of continuing to talk to the girl, and at one point, he pulled out a bra padding he was carrying, "saying he was looking for someone who would fill it", the report said.

Basaraba, who is a father and a grandfather, tells The Daytona Beach News-Journal he's "devastated" and "embarrassed" by what he considers an overreaction.

Officers stopped Basaraba as he was walking on North Atlantic Avenue.

'He singled out my youngest daughter, who is clearly underage, & attempted to recruit her to be his "sugar baby, '" the furious mother wrote. As the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports, authorities have banned Basaraba from beaches and boardwalks in the county for six months. Basaraba wasn't arrested because police didn't see him handing out the business cards.

Basaraba, a retired engineer, lost his wife of 37 years in 2003 and never remarried.

"Maybe the younger ones didn't as much but the older ones did", he said.

"I've had women stop me and say, 'I want to take a picture with you in this shirt.' They want to put them on Facebook."

Basaraba was also putting the pictures on Facebook, but he says he's now deleted the account. "Call me when you're 18,"' he said. He says he barely has enough money to make ends mean, let alone fund a 'sugarbaby'. Don't go to the beach approaching underage girls'.
