Voyeur Nation – Spy Cams Businesses Doing E-Marketing

Just today I received this email from someone whom I didn’t know – spam in easy terms. The subject of the email was interesting so I decided to have a look at it. To my amusement, the email was concerned about Spy Gadgets. It was a shock for me. Don’t you think that I live in age of stones. But the fear I had long ago came in shape of email. My total Axe on the foot fault!!

Flashback. Years ago I came across one friend of mine who told me that now spy cameras are around in market. That was shocking moment for me. I asked on him that what do they ask for like money? He said that its cheap and you can find it easily in FLANA FLANA market.

I had goosebumps because the privacy got loose that very day for me atleast.

Years passed by and I did come across some dirty voyeurism in various shapes. Be it spycam or cellphone cams. But today, this is the height of it.

Now, these guys who might be or might not be having license to issue these spy gadgets are on the roll. They are actually E-Marketing this product. Telling us to go for it. Go for the self-kill. Head-shot. Pump Action. Anything.

Here is what they wrote in their innocent email marketing campaign.

“This technology was originally developed for law enforcement and other various investigation agencies to aid in the collection of evidence. ….. Use this covert camera as a nanny cam to record what your contractor, baby sitter or housekeeper are doing in your home while your away.Record problems with boss or co-worker in the work place. Record important meetings, interviews & social events.”

After reading this statement, one starts thinking that “Hey! that’s not bad. I can now keep check on anyone” but look at the other side of the mirror. How many of us will actually think that way of keeping eye on Nannies? We are voyeur nation. We love to keep our eyes on others private life. We love to hear about other people private life. We love to whisper and gossip about others.

I don’t know that what does the law say about such kind of business? Does the law bar people to capture one’s private life? As far as I remember, I read it in Cyber Terrorsim Law that taking photographs or making video of someone without telling him or her is strictly prohibited.

Be Cautious folks. Some people are not what they look like.
