Sick, Twisted and Evil – Six eBay Executives Charged With Disturbing Cyberstalking…

This is so purposefully evil it almost seems unbelievable.  If you ever wondered how twisted and deranged a group of Silicon Valley executives could be this might provide some context.  This is what happens when Antifa-types get jobs.

Massachusetts DOJ – “Six former employees of eBay, Inc. have been charged with leading a cyberstalking campaign targeting the editor and publisher of a newsletter that eBay executives viewed as critical of the company. The alleged harassment included sending the couple anonymous, threatening messages, disturbing deliveries – including a box of live cockroaches, a funeral wreath and a bloody pig mask – and conducting covert surveillance of the victims.”

Oh, it gets worse. WATCH:

DOJ Press RELEASE

James Baugh, 45, of San Jose, Calif., eBay’s former Senior Director of Safety & Security, was arrested today and charged by criminal complaint with conspiracy to commit cyberstalking and conspiracy to tamper with witnesses.

David Harville, 48, of New York City, eBay’s former Director of Global Resiliency, was arrested this morning in New York City on the same charges and will make an initial appearance via videoconference in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York.

In addition the following defendants were charged in an Information unsealed today: Stephanie Popp, 32, of San Jose, eBay’s former Senior Manager of Global Intelligence; Stephanie Stockwell, 26, of Redwood City, Calif., the former manager of eBay’s Global Intelligence Center (GIC); Veronica Zea, 26, of San Jose, a former eBay contractor who worked as an intelligence analyst in the GIC; and Brian Gilbert, 51, of San Jose, a former Senior Manager of Special Operations for eBay’s Global Security Team.

They are each charged with conspiracy to commit cyberstalking and conspiracy to tamper with witnesses and will make appearances in federal court in Boston at a later date. (MORE)

    America is under attack on so many levels. The communist Bolshevik insurgency, under cover of a race war; and the deluded, marxist, “woke” liberals who truly believe they are entitled to threaten, lecture, dox, and bankrupt anyone whose opinion is different from theirs ~ like these EBay thugs. What about these people who “report” someone to their employer for a comment or an opinion, and the “woke” employer is duty-bound to investigate or fire that person? Stasi state in America? Not to mention the seemingly unprovoked physical attacks on whites by groups of 4-6 black guys happening all over the country now? Videos on twitter. One police officer being choked with his own Billy club on the floor of a fast food place. Atlanta police are understaffed with “blue flu” as officers are now under attack on all sides. Armor up, believers, this “season” will continue.

      I think all these big companies that were supportive of Hillary and the Democratic Machine are sabotaging the economies of people who are conservative. (Most large companies that people use everyday either have CEOs whom are friends with DNC machine, or have other executives, or board members who are in bed with them. ) We know for a fact Google, Facebook, Twitter, even Craigslist, and many others are Leftist ran organizations where conservatives are often targeted in many ways, whether it be blocking them from commerce, secretly shadow banning, ghosting their posts, throttling customers replies and inquires, etc. They really cannot be trusted, but unfortunately we don’t have many other options right now, which is why the Anti trust issues are so important to solve.

      What’s most troubling is that we’re living in a time when people are quick to take on a grievance and worse yet act on that grievance even if it is unlawful acts. The Democrats have created a “victim” class and without publicly speaking out against unlawful acts or defending the rule of law, they perpetuate responses like these eBay executives and the rioters plaguing our cities. Rule of law is what’s crucial to a civil society.

      Look up David Wenig the resigned CEO of Ebay.

      See the text messages him and another guy sent back
      and forth regarding this couple. They pretty much put a
      mob hit on this couple. And, Ebay is claiming they weren’t
      involved. CYA, save the stock price.

      Along the lines of “I don’t need to know how you do it,
      I just want it done”.

      Wenig was at Reuters from 2008-2011. Couldn’t find any
      scandals that smelled of him online. But I have a feeling
      that this federal prosecutor’s phone lines will be ringing
      off the hook soon. This type of behavior doesn’t just start
      out of the blue. There’s guaranteed to be a lot of coworkers,
      underlings that this dude has treated shabbily over the years.

      Oh, and the guy got a fifty seven million golden parachute
      when he bailed. I hope that this couple gets every cent of it and more.

        “This kind of behavior doesn’t just start out of the blue.“

        Tour Guide,

        Interesting post.

        Wenig, firmer CEO, is documented in his communication archives as an instigator yet is untouched. He is rewarded upon exiting and passes smoothly through the proverbial revolving door. No ostracism, no consequences.

        We’ve witnessed parallel criminal behavior at the executive level in several federal institutions yet zero prosecutions. No ostracism, no consequences,

        In fact, the corporate/state platforms these deceitful Pied Pipers, leading our country astray.

        This suggests degraded organisational cultures are either contagious or broadly shared within a select, exclusionist caste.
        Do executives in federal government, SIS and SES, have prosecutorial immunity?
        Is the senior level of FBI legally immune?

        Why do government employees receive free legal representation?

        Having the OLC defend or fend off cases against hi level colleagues seems like a huge conflict of interest. Do taxpayers fund the preliminary legal expenses of prospective defendants?

        I don’t understand the logic of confining legal power to only one organisation.
        Is this a glitch, unforeseen by the creators of our constitution?

        I applaud the JD actions, and look forward to many more . 🇺🇸🦅

      All big Silicon Valley companies have this. “Resiliency” is what you need when: (a) there’s an earthquake that eliminates all power in San Jose for a week; or (b) your PayPal servers are getting hammered with DDos attacks because you decided that no one can donate to Wikileaks via PayPal https://www.theregister.com/2010/12/06/anonymous_launches_pro_wikileaks_campaign/; or (c) two of your data centers get flattened by looters. They plan for all things like this.

      A Global Intelligence Center monitors events around the world so that you can alert company travelers if they’re in a zone that suddenly becomes hot (e.g., India/China conflict). It monitors the dark web to see if company data has been exfiltrated. It attempts to follow rogues on site who have been using your company’s platform (e.g., those who sell stolen goods on eBay). It monitors social media for threats against the company or company executives (e.g., stalkers and others — there are many). It may also monitor attacks on DNS providers aimed at taking your website offline.

      There’s nothing nefarious in this. They’re just making plans and backup plans to continue operations when contingencies occur.

        Do a little research on this kid. It looks like she comes from big money.

        This whole thing is scary. Didn’t any of these people – and there were others not named – have the moral compass to say, “No. I’m not doing that.” I’m embarrassed to say that I could have seen myself doing some of these stupid things, like ordering pizza or a plumber to the house, thinking it was funny when I was in my 20’s. But the cockroaches, spiders, bloody pig mask, and particularly the sympathy wreath and the book dealing with death of a spouse aren’t funny, and I believe even my stupid 20 something year old self would have drawn the line at those. And then to rejoice over the word that the victims were panicking and getting paranoid. The whole scheme is so sick and shows a complete lack of empathy.

        And all that lying to the cops and lawyers seemed to have been done so arrogantly. You’d think one of them would have had the sense (or at least the humility) to realize very early on that these actions could land them in jail – better call a lawyer and start mitigating the damage.

        I just talked to my kids and told them it doesn’t take much money to keep a roof over your head and food in your stomach. There’s always honest work available. Don’t be afraid to walk away if somebody asks you to do something that your conscience tells you is wrong. “Yeah, yeah mom, we know.” I hope they do.

    I know far more about this than I can publicly say, even using a pseudonym.

    But, let me just quell some of the suspicion. These are not Antifa-types. They’re a former California police chief, a former CIA employee, a former high level military officer, and a person who always dreamed of working as a CIA analyst.

    They aren’t Antifa-types. They’re former law enforcement (or wannabe law enforcement) who went rogue, thought they were above the law, and thought they were too smart to get caught. You don’t have to believe me and I can’t provide more facts. But, the idea that anyone who would do the things that are alleged must be “Antifa” is way off the mark.

    Silicon Valley is far left wing. But, that stereotype and generalization applies to the execs and coders. It doesn’t apply to the security teams that work there. Again, you need not believe me, but running with these sort of unsubstantiated narratives does not advance the site’s credibility, particularly when it will all come out in the wash that it’s a misguided theory.

    I suspect this is standard practice at most of these companies…

    Especially those that were formed since 2000. Basic skills like discerning right from wrong are lacking in a whole generation. When the substance of personal relationships is relegated to text messaging and little face to face interaction the social skills category was never developed. Selfishness became a core value.

    In this case the ability to disrespect someone through a text message was not enough…They had to do more… The same type of juvenile behavior is rampant across our whole society now… Look at the major media – they all lie without any penalty… NYT, Wash Post, CNN, MSNBC…..

    They all act the same way… No integrity…

    Why would we expect the rest of these companies to do otherwise when the see our primary major media do it round the clock… with no penalty at all in fact they are rewarded. Their executives are all very rich entitled and above the law or they feel they make their own rules..

      I used to read it daily. It was an invaluable resource, and the comment section was superb – experienced professionals who gave great tips, and weren’t afraid to tell it like it is.

    Well done presser and great closing statement on the police.

    But … and this is off topic … when oh when are we going to stop seeing public officials masked at such events? It gives the impression that this is official federal government policy (is it?), and plays into the left’s false narrative that the virus is a mortal threat. Why do we always cede the argument to the left, allowing their assumptions to go unchallenged?

    Note that those masked did not talk. The only speaker, who Karens would claim was a spreader, was unmasked (great for us because we could actually understand his important message). And, as far as I know, (and I’m willing to bet it’s the case) no one in that room is in the at-risk demographic for dying of COVID.

    Please this idiocy now, so I don’t have to combat the lefties throwing this official masking in my face.

    I was born and raised in San Jose. I was in law enforcement there for 43 years. It was a most beautiful place until the Silicon Valley high tech boom descended on this once beautiful valley. At first it seemed like a financial boom that would benefit everyone. Big money arrived and bought up ALL the beautiful farm property and built huge factories…..everywhere. Anyone who tells you that the quality of life improved over the succeeding years is a LIAR. The place is a cesspool of people living in grossly overpriced condos and homes. The elites live in nearby exclusive communities like Palo Alto and preach liberal values from behind restricted fences with security guards. These people are so full of themselves that they think no one on the earth is in their class. After all, they invented the iPhone. The air of superiority and sickness oozes from their pores. The actual quality of life across the board in Silicon Valley sucks. It’s a daily rat race. The place can be stifling to the human spirit. That is the honest to God’s truth! We moved in 2014.

    CHAZ doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the US. Maybe the EBay Six should escape to CHAZ and lay low for a while. They’d fit right in.

    meanwhile…quietly..this..

    https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/team-telecom-recommends-fcc-deny-pacific-light-cable-network-system-s-hong-kong-undersea

    Team Telecom, which is formally known as the Committee for the Assessment of Foreign Participation in the United States Telecommunications Services Sector (or the Committee), further recommended that the FCC grant the portions of PLCN’s application seeking to connect the United States, Taiwan, and the Philippines, which do not have any People’s Republic of China (PRC) based ownership and are separately owned and controlled by subsidiaries of Google LLC and Facebook, Inc., on the condition that the companies’ subsidiaries enter into mitigation agreements for those respective connections. On April 8, 2020, the FCC granted Google’s request for Special Temporary Authority (STA) to commercially operate the segment of PLCN connecting the United States and Taiwan for six months, based on obligations set forth in a Provisional National Security Agreement between Google and the U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Defense.

    As submitted to the FCC, the PLCN application would have allowed for the highest capacity subsea cable connection between the United States and Asia and been the first direct connection between the United States and Hong Kong. This raised national security concerns, because a significant investor in the PLCN is Pacific Light Data Co. Ltd., a Hong Kong company and subsidiary of Dr. Peng Telecom & Media Group Co. Ltd. (Dr. Peng Group), the fourth largest provider of telecommunications services in the PRC.

    notes: the timing of chinese retaking of hong kong (where PLDC is headquartered) AND THIS CASE BY DOJ is no coincidence. If one looks carefully at Dr. Peng Group and it’s critical national interest of PRC….and what it had preferred with the deep sea cable (the ONLY one of its class and type…C+L band optical technology! ), then you get some idea of why Google and facebook strangely were permitted special access.

    none of these actions by DOJ should be regarded as good for national security.

    by allowing google and facebook (and quite a few other companies) who are handsomely financed by chinese interests..they will be doing what Dr Peng Group was not permitted to operate ….shifting prerogatives from bad man, to “our man”.

    pay attention…

  44. There has to be more to this story than a simple newsletter; who were these newsletter publishers? What the heck were they saying? Who read it? The reaction seems extreme for just a couple of people putting out a newsletter..were they former employees? Something is missing here.

      I don’t think so. I think it’s simply a trade publication which has a wide enough audience to have some influence. The newsletter is for people who make a living selling things online. Selling and shipping items through eBay, Amazon, and Craigs is its focus. eBay has done some things that made it more desirable for sellers to use other platforms. One thing the newsletter did do which really ticked off the execs was run a few articles that highlighted some profligate spending by eBay all while turning the screws on its seller community.

    I’m betting Ebay sells as much or more Chinese stuff than Walmart does, Xi better get Ebay to police its staff before before Ebay users slide on over to Wish.
