on the TV news showing criminal activity in action? Can you see much detail in these? Could you tell a person eye color shown in the video. If a robbery note was being shown, could you read it? Do you think that you'd be able to see a name and credit card #? As of now, these hidden cameras can't offer that sort of resolution but that could come. You're more likely to be victimized by someone with a cell phone camera that's withing 2 feet of you. You probably already know that when you use your ATM....day or night....your transaction is being video recorded. How do I know this? It saved me about 300 bucks one time when the machine got my withdrawal money stuck on the way out and just pulled it back in but docked my account anyway. It was the video evidence that showed my presence and got my account credited. I'm glad it was there. You'll never run out of things to worry about...most of which won't come to pass. Fear is the biggest cause today of paralysis.
Have you ever noticed how many surveillance cameras are at the drug stores? It can practically read your private info on the PC screens while it can flash your face at the same time when getting some drugs. People are fooled by the thought that surveillance cameras can be their protection while it could be a real threat to us. It is a convenient gadget for those who are after your vulnerable personal data. The drug stores sell personal data left and right anyway while the surveillance video records your face and medical records. The worst part is that the people who has easy access to surveillance videos can tag a person who carries a credit card, phone, car, black box that are chipped with RFID. The disturbing fact is who will be monitoring them? There is no authority that controls these people who abuse their power to manipulate people?s private data and bully whoever falls out of their taste if they want to.
