PETALING JAYA: H&M Malaysia has lodged a police report after Twitter users expressed concerns that footage from concealed cameras in fitting rooms at a Kuala Lumpur store was being sold online.

"The safety of our customers is of the utmost importance to us. A police report has been made and investigations are currently ongoing.

"We have conducted an inspection of all fitting rooms and are working to ensure that there are no security breaches that will compromise the privacy of our customers," the company said in a statement to LifestyleTech.

It is alleged that the videos are being sold online, with sellers claiming to have recordings of couples and individuals in the fitting rooms.

The issue was first highlighted by user @meleisgw on Jan 8, but she has since deleted her tweet.

She later posted an update in which an alleged victim claimed to have recognised herself in one of the videos.

The victim also claimed that the recording may have been taken in October last year.

In another post, a user claimed that she spotted her friend in one of the videos.

According to @meleisgw, she received a DM saying that a police report has been filed on the matter.
