Peeping Tom in Banks

By MissClearwater - 20 October 2011 28

On the 19th of October 2011 at around 10:30pm, I was in my back room putting on fake tan. I didn’t have any clothes on.

Looked up and saw my loungeroom light reflected on a shiny metal camcorder that was being held up over the back fence.

I quietly told my BF who went running and yelling “what the f*** do you think your doing!” at the person.

They ran away and neither of us got a good look at even whether it was a guy or a girl. The person was standing in the drainage reserve (trees, grass, bikepath) between Paperbark St and Wiburd St in Banks but my back fence is really high so I am not sure how he knew to look over it.

Please keep your eyes out and your back doors locked and if this happens to anyone else, ring your local police station as soon as you can!

Not that it matters, filming someone without their consent on their private property is completely illegal,.

Wrong

So the Police wrongly charged two ADFA cadets this year?

I think you will find that it would be classed as an Act of indecency without consent.

Read it again.

I have had a camera with a flash outside the window I was sitting near reading by a lamp.. The person was taking pictures of the inside of the house at night aprox 10pm…it was such a weird thing. As the flash went off multiple times. My doors were locked and I wasn’t going to go and check it out.

Peeping tom.. or someone got a new camera… or a new way to case a house….who knows

This could be of some help.

It looks like people who commit such a crime are charged with “making observations or recordings in breach of privacy” (according to google anyway)

A suggestion. Is it all likley that someone may have hired a private investigator against you for any reason. The scenario you describe makes it unlikley that it was specifically to catch you in flagrate delecto, more likely just generally scoping around for any suspect activity.

I know of a number of people who routinely hire private investigators to film people naked and/or having sex, so they can put the footage up on the internet.

I have never heard of this happening but I don’t doubt you. On question – How do you know so many of these people?

OP I’m sorry this happened to you. But if I were you I would remove the street names from your original post because you may have inadvertently revealed your address.

Are either yourself or your boyfriend receiving benefits from Centrelink?

If you are, and you are living de facto without telling Centrelink it may be a private investigator trying to catch you out.
