Creepy landlord fakes 'maintenance' to install surveillance camera


Whether you rent or own your home, you assume a certain amount of privacy in your living space, but a tenant who posted on reddit recently discovered their landlord trying to run surveillance on them in their apartment. Under the pretense of doing regular maintenance, they installed a camera — with audio — without the tenants' knowledge or consent. 

Thankfully this landlord isn't a very good spy, and the concerned renter spotted it within a day or two, but the implications are no less concerning. The camera he discovered takes a 360-degree view and has a microphone, and it's hard to come up with an innocent or reasonable explanation for it.
