THIS is the chilling moment a woman realised her web camera was spying on her when it turned to look at her and said "bonjour madame".

Several warnings have been issued over internet-connected cameras that can be remotely hacked by pervs and used to spy on people, reports The Sun.

Now one woman in the Netherlands has learned just how intrusive these gadgets can be after buying a cheap version from the Dutch retailer Action.

Rilana Hamer, who recently graduated from university and works at a financial services firm, thought the webcam would be a good way to keep an eye on her puppy while she was at work.

But it turned out that she was the one that was being monitored.

Hamer was with a pal when she noticed the rotating camera swivel to look at her from across the room.

"I heard, bonjour madame," she wrote in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

"I moved to the left and right, and the camera came with me".

Hamer whipped out her smartphone to film, and the chilling clip she recorded appears to show a mumbled voice having a conversation with terrified Hamer as she screams "get out of my house".

It continues to swivel, before uttering "suck my d***".

"My privacy, my house, my personal stuff and myself ... I'm scared. terrified," wrote Hamer.

"I'm being watched, but for how long? What did that person see from me?"

Hundreds of thousands of unsecured personal cameras are available to watch online, in real-time thanks to sick websites that allow voyeurs to snoop on the general public.

The websites allow pervy peepers to peer through thousands of cameras placed in British car parks, offices and communal corridors as well as bedrooms and waiting rooms around the world.

The problem is so widespread even Mark Zuckerberg and Pope Francis have placed stickers over their smartphone cameras to stop someone watching them.

Action has been selling the Maxxter 3D webcams since May this year and has warned anyone who purchased one to change their PIN number to stop hackers accessing their device.

It published a statement on its website, which said: "In response to messages on Facebook and in the media about the possible hacking of a security camera purchased from Action, we would like to inform you that Action takes the security of its customers and the products we sell extremely seriously.

"We are in touch with this customer about this incident.

"In order to investigate the cause and to determine whether it is in camera or something else, the camera concerned is requested so that it can be checked by the supplier thoroughly.

"Should it prove that the camera does not meet our requirements then it will, of course, be called back and we will inform our customers about this.

"This camera has been sold at Action since May 2017. Customers who bought this product, we strongly recommend that you change the default ID password and use a strong Wi-Fi password.

"See also the operating instructions."
