According to VLeeG’s first video, the first camera she found was the one under her desk.

“I noticed it was hip,” she says, pointing to a white brick with a cable attached. “I followed him and there’s a camera over there.”

An office worker has claimed in a series of now-viral videos that she found several hidden cameras at work.

Camera two

Worried, she scanned the office to see if she could find any other hidden cameras and, to her surprise, she said she found one in the employee restroom. The camera was disguised as a peg; however, when she undid the “hook” from the door and flipped it over, she found a USB port.

“Oh my god,” VLeeG said in a separate video as she showed viewers the “hook”.

To confirm that the coat hook was indeed a camera, she searched for “clothes hook hidden camera” on Amazon, and I found the camera itself she took the bathroom.

Of course, she wanted to catch the person responsible for setting up these devices, so VLeeG unplugged the hidden camera under her desk, hoping that “whoever it belonged to would come back and see why it wasn’t working.” she says. Then her husband placed a baby monitor on his desk.

After leaving the office, they went home and “waited”. Indeed, the baby monitor caught a man coming to his office and play with something underneath.

camera three

And when she got to work the next morning, she found a third camera disguised as a charging brick plugged into an outlet in his office.

Commentators pleaded with her to call the police and contact human resources (HR).

“We absolutely work with PD and I’m HR, we acted quickly and the company was very supportive, which I’m very grateful for,” she said in a comment.

In another message, she added that the worker had been fired from his job and given a trespassing warning.

“It’s done for now” she wrote. “In the hands of the law now.”

Newsweek has contacted VLeeG for comment.

Are hidden cameras common?

According to Keith Roberts, a technician with Advanced Sweeping, hidden cameras have become “much more prevalent”.

Before, there was a tight market and you had to know someone to find one,” he said. The Independent. “They’re much easier to buy now – anyone can buy them commercially on Amazon or eBay.”

One way to see if the device is a camera is to shine [a] bright light on her. If you hit the lens of a camera, it will give a bluish sheen.

To spot hidden cameras in hotel rooms or other areas of concern, cybersecurity educator Marcus Hutchins recommends shining a “bright light” on any suspicious device.

“One way to see if the device is a camera is to shine [a] bright light on her. If you hit a camera lens, it will give off a bluish sheen,” he said.

Hutchins also advised people to look for electronic devices “placed in areas that could be ideally positioned for spying”.
