Couple find voyeur cameras in all rooms of their Air BnB rental in Florida, beware

|

The concept of AirBNB is great when the rules are followed, however there is one policing the renters to ensure they are straight up. It is up to each person to be vigilant and check references.

In October 2017, a young couple's vacation at a Florida Airbnb unit quickly turned into a nightmare when they discovered the homeowner had been secretly recording them with hidden cameras.

Derek Starnes, from Indiana, told WFTS that he and his wife had rented a home in Longboat Key, Florida through Airbnb.

The trip seemed to be going well until Starnes, who works in the tech industry, noticed a tiny black hole on the smoke detector in the master bedroom.

When he took it down to inspect it, Starnes said he found a camera and microphone inside it. He immediately alerted the police.

The property belongs to Wayne Natt who was subsequently arrested and charge with voyeurism. The cops found two smoke detectors with miniature cameras hidden and placed in 2 rooms of the home, and they seized computers, SD cards and anything else that could store data.

This pervert may have distributed videos of many vacationers who rented his property for a great escape.

Airbnb spokesman Benjamin Breit gave a statement:

“We are outraged at the reports of what happened; as soon as we were made aware, we permanently banned this individual from our community and fully supported the affected guests. Our team has reached out to local law enforcement to aid them with their investigation of this egregious offense and we hope justice is served. We take privacy issues extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy against this behavior.”

Don't be a victim of this crazy activity. Review, review and then review again before making a decision. While cheap is always desired, there may be disadvantages.
