Six former eBay employees have been arrested for ‘aggressive cyber-stalking marketing campaign’ focusing on a pair who printed the publication for his or her adverse eBay protection – sending the couple online threats, causes, mailing dwelling bugs, and bloody pig face masks, and driving to the couple’s Massachusetts residence to track them.

According to the Division Justice, former employees including James Baugh, David Harville, Stephanie Popp, Brian Gilbert, Stephanie Stockwell, and Veronica Zea have allegedly concerned with harassment marketing.

As per the details, the accused created a nameless account to ship insults and threats to the journalist and her husband. In a wink of an eye, the harassment turned into in-person harassment.

They shipped pig masks, a field of cockroaches, one other field of fly larvae and dwell spiders, pornography, an e-book on “surviving the lack of a partner”, a sympathy wreath from an area florist and a “preserved fetal pig” — though the pig fetus was by no means delivered.

Additionally, the workforce allegedly spied on the couple to seek evidence that they collaborated with troll commentators. They deliberately interrupt their storage at one level and set up a monitoring machine for their car.

EBay’s management did not know about the harassment marketing campaign until being notified by regulation enforcement in August 2019.

The corporate shared a press release stating that they have terminated all the workers related within the case and ‘eBay does not tolerate this sort of habits’.

“eBay apologizes to the affected people and is sorry that they have been subjected to this. eBay holds its workers to excessive requirements of conduct and ethics and can proceed to take acceptable motion to make sure these requirements are adopted,” read the press release.
