US woman sues Hilton for $100 mil­lion over nude shower video

Global Times - - MOSAIC -

A Chicago woman is su­ing Hilton World­wide for $100 mil­lion say­ing that she was filmed naked in the shower by a hid­den cam­era while a ho­tel guest – in footage up­loaded with her name onto mul­ti­ple porn sites.

The woman was a guest at a Hamp­ton Inn and Suites ho­tel in Al­bany, New York, in July 2015.

She was recorded, fully nude, while tak­ing a shower by a hid­den video cam­era, the law­suit claims.

But she was bliss­fully ig­no­rant un­til Septem­ber 2018, more than three years later, when she re­ceived an email say­ing “this is you right?” with a link to the video on a porn site pub­lished with her full name.

The same per­son then sent mul­ti­ple threat­en­ing emails, claim­ing to know where she went to univer­sity and where she worked.

The ex­tor­tion­ist then de­manded an im­me­di­ate hush pay­ment of $2,000 fol­lowed by $1,000 a month for a year, the law­suit claims, also al­leg­ing that other peo­ple were recorded in the same room at the Hamp­ton Inn.
