Yikes. Dougie Hamilton posted on Facebook about what happened to him at an Airbnb in Toronto, and it is nightmarish. He explained how the week before, he watched a video on social media about how small cameras are these days and that they can be put in everyday objects and used to spy on people. Then, one morning at the Airbnb, he found himself staring at a clock facing the bedroom and wondered to himself if there might be a camera in it.
He dismissed it as paranoia, but it kept eating at him until he finally examined the clock. He unplugged it, slid the front face off and found out he was right, there was a camera in it.
Toronto police are now investigating the incident. Meanwhile, Airbnb released a statement saying, "We take privacy issues extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy for this behavior. We have removed the host from the platform while we investigate and are providing the guest with our full support."
Stay vigilant, folks!
