While most hotel employees who work in hotels are honest, travelers should always be aware that theft is a possibility and items of value should never be left out when you are away. This video was shot by a traveler who was staying in a hotel overseas and thought that money was being taken out of his wallet when he was away from his room. He set up a hidden camera and caught the hotel maid stealing money from his wallet.
