|Is Your Home Or Office Bugged?
|According to Newsweek magazine over 200,000 surveillance bugs have been planted in the U.S. and
Europe in recent years. Detecting exactly how many individuals and industries have been
victimized by illegal and unwanted surveillance is hard to estimate, since such devices are used to
gather information on political and business negotiations, trade secrets, and marketing strategies
that could cause monumental damage to its victims.
A confidential report published by the United States Department of Justice in March 1997, disclosed
that 3 New York businessmen, (one a former DEA agent) were found guilty of using several store
front "Spy Shop" operations to sell over 4,400 illegal listening devices which they had smuggled into
the country. As a result of this case, over eighty other people were convicted of trafficking in illicit
eavesdropping equipment... most of those convicted are still in business, and only viewed their
criminal case as "a cost of doing business".
The illegal equipment confiscated during the raids included bugging devices that were miniature
transmitters hidden in everyday household and office items like pens, radios, calculators, credit
cards, table lamps, clocks, teddy bears and smoke detectors.
