Six former eBay employees have been charged with a bizarre stalking campaign against an e-commerce newsletter. The Department of Justice alleges that James Baugh, David Harville, Stephanie Popp, Brian Gilbert, Stephanie Stockwell, and Veronica Zea viciously harassed the couple who published the newsletter for their negative eBay coverage.
eBay admitted that Wenig made “inappropriate” comments about the newsletter, although “there was no evidence that he knew in advance about or authorized the actions that were later directed toward the blogger and her husband.”
eBay’s leadership supposedly didn’t know about the the harassment campaign until being notified by law enforcement in August 2019. The company posted a statement saying that it terminated all the employees involved in September.
