Woman Sues Hilton for $100 Million - Filmed in Shower
A Chicago area woman, who alleges that she was video recorded while taking a shower at a hotel and then blackmailed, has filed a $100 million lawsuit.
The lawsuit, which does not identify the woman, claims that an unidentified employee had secretly recorded her at the Hilton's Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Albany, New York, in 2015.
She did not realize she was recorded until September when she received an email with a link to the shower video on an X-rated website with her full name in the video's title. The message read: "This is you right?"
"All I could think is, 'My life is over. If this gets out, my life is absolutely over,'" said the woman, who fears for her safety.
According to the complaint, the next day, the extorter threatened to post videos of her on other sites unless she sent a new private video in exchange. The message said: "You have until midnight to send me something good. Or I will post videos, your name, info everywhere. Then I send to people you know. You can enjoy being famous."
