Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A brace of Bulgarian coeds have been left shaken after discovering that their Florida apartment was bristling with hidden spy cams.

Vanya Samokovareva and Ralitsa Dzhambasova, both in their early 20s, came to the US for two months as exchange students, and were working part-time as waitresses before becoming "pizza babes" for a local businessman, local TV reports.

The businessman also provided the apartment, they said. However, the relationship quickly went sour.

Following a visit from a chef acquaintance, they discovered a hidden camera. A subsequent search revealed many more hidden in smoke detectors and motion detectors throughout the apartment, all apparently hooked into a single junction box apparently connected to the internet.

The pair are concerned that every waking moment of their US stay to date may have been slurped, and possibly splattered across the net.

"The bathroom. It's your room. It's a private space because, you take a shower there, you make everything there like you go to the toilet there," Samokovareva told KSDK.

A statement from the Hillsborough County Sherriff's department detectives will attempt to determine if the system has been active and if it was being viewed and/or recorded at a remote location via CCTV or over the internet.

KSDK TV has video of the girls, fully clothed, demonstrating the surreptitious snapping system.

"We are not in the porno industry or something like this," said Dzhambasova. Sadly, we suspect that statement is no longer completely true. ®
