A woman has issued a warning after she found 10 creepy spy cameras concealed around a rental property she booked on Airbnb.
The traveller shared her "scary ordeal" after realising there was cameras "hidden all over the house" during her stay in Philadelphia, USA.
The Twitter user named @foxytaughtyou said people "should be cautious" and said, "some were disguised as sprinkler systems."
She was left severely creeped out when her friend reportedly came across more "in the showers and bedrooms."
She said the platform moved them to another property after they alerted Philadelphia police.

She tweeted on June 13: “We reported this to [Airbnb] and to the police station Friday noon and still have not had a update on this case.
“We have no idea what footage this owner has and what he is doing with it!
“This is so UNSAFE, and scary! Thank God we noticed the cameras and got out of there!”
In a video on TikTok, the pair said they fell asleep on the sofa and discovered the cameras on the ceiling when they woke up.
She added: “We were creeped out and we decided to look everywhere in the Airbnb, all over the ceiling, and see if there’s any more cameras.

“We discovered that the sprinklers had a camera lens. We got on the chair and we did a flash test on these sprinklers and they are cameras.”
A spokesperson for Airbnb spokesperson told The Independent: “Our policies strictly prohibit hidden cameras and we take forceful action in the exceptionally rare circumstances where this has been reported, including assisting law enforcement to help them hold criminals accountable.
“In this case, our Safety team has suspended this Host and removed this listing from our platform while we thoroughly investigate this report. We are also providing support to our guest, including a full refund.”
