When police began to look into the claims of harassment of the Natick, Massachusetts, couple, US Attorney Andrew Lelling said, the now-former eBay employees then tried to derail the criminal investigation and, at one point, began to compile a list of people to possibly frame for the crimes, Buzzfeed News Reports. Sounds like it’s the eCommerceBytes Steiners? 😎
All six were charged with cyberstalking and conspiracy to tamper with witnesses, and could face up to five years in prison each and individual fines of up to $250,000.
James Baugh, eBay’s former director of safety and security, and David Harville, the former director of global resiliency at eBay, were both arrested Monday as part of the charges, The Hill Reports.
eBay executives were not merely unhappy with the couple’s coverage they were enraged. The result, as alleged in the complaint, is a systematic campaign fueled by the resources of a Fortune 500 company to emotionally and psychologically terrorize this middle-aged couple in Natick with the goal of deterring them from writing bad things online about eBay.
As part of the intimidation campaign, the eBay staff allegedly sent the couple, who were not named by prosecutors, a mask of a bloody pig’s face, live cockroaches, a book about how to deal with a spouse’s death, and pornography that was delivered to a neighbor’s home, but in the couple’s name.
This eBay targeted harassment is small compared to what’s been done to me for a decade. This ebaymotorssucks.com subdomain is packed full of eBay corporate harassment documentation. Have a look around this website and on my video server for further stalking info. 😥
