Zite 上看到「FBI can’t cut Internet and pose as cable guy to search property, judge says」這篇文章,講 FBI 的「創意」被法院給否決。

搜索的手段是這樣發生的。FBI 的人先把網路給剪斷,然後偽裝成修復工人進去搜索:

The Las Vegas court frowned on the FBI's ruse of disconnecting Internet access to $25,000-per-night villas at Caesar's Palace Hotel and Casino. FBI agents posed as the cable guy and secretly searched the premises.

然後就宣稱因為這是被邀請入內,所以搜索是合法的:

The government claimed the search was legal because the suspects invited the agents into the room to fix the Internet.

不過法官顯然不買帳,引用法官的話:

Permitting the government to create the need for the occupant to invite a third party into his or her home would effectively allow the government to conduct warrantless searches of the vast majority of residents and hotel rooms in America,

也就是說,除非當事人明確知道搜索並且同意,不然這種惡搞「同意」的行為並不合法。
