The woman posted on her Facebook wall that the driver of a cab had used his mobile phone to take the footage during a journey she took from Vibhavadi Road to Channel 7’s offices in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district.
The woman, who identified herself as Golf, said the incident had taken place at 3pm on Sunday.
She said that when she was paying the fare, she noticed a flash and realised that the taxi driver had definitely been taking photos and/or video clips.
She demanded that he allow her to check his mobile phone, but the driver initially refused to let her see it.
She then had to threaten to call security officers in front of Channel 7 for assistance, before the driver allowed her to examine his mobile.
He had apparently hidden the video icon, but she spent about five minutes locating it and found two clips of her being filmed stealthily from head to toe, she wrote on Facebook.
The woman said she had also found clips of a few other female passengers, so she erased all of the offending footage, told the taxi driver not to do it again and decided to post a warning on her Facebook wall.
She added that she had decided not to file a complaint with the police because she would like the taxi driver to be given a chance to change his behaviour.
