Next time you find yourself in a public toilet or changing room, make sure to check the coat hook hanging on the back of the door or wall! Police have reported that ‘spy cam’ coat-hooks, readily available to buy online for as little as €10, are being used to spy on you in changing rooms and loos by peeping-tom sickos.
Although the plastic hooks look quite innocent at first glance, they contain miniature cameras inside which film through a small hole at the top of the hook – capturing both sound and motion.
Police have warned:
“Anyone who has a public restroom on their property needs to check them closely.
If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond.
Keep in mind, though, that these are very small cameras that can be mounted in many locations and hidden in many seemingly every-day items.”
