Ufuoma McDermott has advised everyone to install CCTV cameras in their homes as it can save them a tonne of problems.
She said this on her Instagram page where she narrated how a friend’s nanny attempted to steal from her.
She explained that it had happened when a couple of friends had come over to her house with their kids to have a play date, she then explained how a nanny of one of the friends had snuck into the children’s room and stolen some money and how the thief had skillfully rushed to the bathroom to use the money to dab her face so it looks worn and hidden it on Ufuoma’s table with tissue so as to hide the money in plain sight.
She said the nanny was confronted but that she denied any wrongdoing until Ufuoma disclosed that she had CCTV cameras installed and they went to access the cameras and that was when they saw just how the thief had carried out her crime.

PLEASE INSTALL CCTV IN YOUR HOMES
On Sunday, my friends and I wanted our kids to spend time together. They converged at mine. The nanny of one friend stole money from a purse and denied. She was the only adult that went into the children’s room. They searched her and begged her to return it to no avail. When I returned, I calmly told them I have CCTV all over the house.
What my eye saw in those footages is nothing short of a calculated professional career thief, waiting to be employed into people’s houses. She took the money from a handbag in my children’s room, rushed into the toilet, sqeezed and wrapped the money in tissue, used it to dab her face so it looks worn, then placed it on my office table. She knew she would be searched. She didn’t want it found on her. But she also knew that no one would suspect that used looking tissue ball sitting there in open glare. My own nannies could have been accused of this theft. The cctv saved the day.
