An office worker has shared her horror after she allegedly found a hidden camera in the toilet cubicle at work disguised as a coat hook.
The Texas woman also claims to have found other secret cameras at her workplace, including one under her desk.
Sharing her evidence on TikTok la femme, Vanessa Lee shows off the incredibly hard-to-spot camera designed as a coat hook attached to the cubicle door facing the restroom.
In the video, which has now been viewed more than 1.4 million times, Vanessa, who posts under the username texicana208, films a man removing the black hook from the door.
He twists the hook to reveal a mini display port on the back going into the “camera”.
It appears to have a tiny peephole lens on the front which faced the toilet.
In the video, Vanessa claims “only a select few employees had access to this bathroom.”
Vanessa reportedly found several other hidden cameras at her workplace, including one she says she discovered under her desk.
She said via a text overlay that after finding the camera under the desk, she searched for the company that made it, then “circled around the rest of the desk… looking for anything that looked like to the gadgets they were selling”.
That’s when she says she discovered the one in the bathroom.
Her next video features a “hidden camera with clothes hook” for sale on Amazon.
It is made by NANIBO according to the Amazon listing and seems to be the same one she found in the toilet cubicle.
She cries in the video, writing via a text overlay, “Confirming what I thought I found.”
Vanessa told the Daily Dot she discovered the camera after reaching for her bag, which was under her desk.
“This little blue light caught my eye,” she said. “And then I noticed the cord.
“I followed the cord, and when I pulled it… [the] the camera is out.”
Only a few privileged employees had access to this bathroom
In another video, she says she left the camera under her desk but made sure the wire was “barely plugged in” and installed one herself.
The plan was to catch the person who allegedly set it up in the act as they returned to fix it.
His next video features footage of a man looking under his desk.
Text overlaid on the video reads: “6am received a notification from the camera we installed in my office. It detected motion. He indeed came to see why it wasn’t working.”
Vanessa censors the man’s face in the clip as he bends down, allegedly to plug something else into his wall outlet.
In the following video, Vanessa shows what the man allegedly hooked up – another hidden camera.
She claims the police were called to the office and found the package the camera came in.
Vanessa shows off the camera packaging, disguised as a phone charger.
In her latest video on the subject, she shows a heavily censored criminal trespassing warning, with the text overlay: “In the hands of the law now.”
She also hints that she quit her job, saying she’s starting “a new job on Monday.”
Lee told the Daily Dot that officers from the Beaumont Police Department issued the unnamed man a trespassing warning and also took his phone.
But, she added, “He hasn’t been arrested. So nothing has been done to him yet.”
She said she first found the cameras in June last year and posted the videos on TikTok to ‘raise awareness’ of what had happened as she was unhappy with how the police had handled the case.
“I haven’t had any progress from the police. I haven’t had any updates so I went to TikTok with it,” she said.
The Sun Online has approached the Beaumont Police Department for comment.
