Two Former Execs Headed To PRISON – Their Crimes Were Unforgivable!

Former eBay Execs Get Prison Time for Harassing Customers

Former eBay Execs Receive Punishment for Harassing People

( – Online reviews can make or break web-based retail businesses. However, two men who formerly worked for internet auction giant eBay took their efforts to suppress negative reviews too far.

On Thursday, September 29, Judge Patti B. Saris for the US Court District of Massachusetts sentenced James Baugh and David Harville to prison for their role in a cyberstalking scheme targeting individuals behind a newsletter that criticized their company. According to court reports, the pair of former executives and a number of other eBay officials started harassing a married couple based in Natick, Massachusetts, in August 2019 and continued the campaign for just over a month.

According to the complaint against them, the pair used eBay’s security department resources to undertake a three-part scheme. This included mailing items — such as live insects and a pig mask stained with blood — to the home of the victims. On one occasion, the two defendants and another co-conspirator placed a GPS tracking device on one of the victims’ vehicles. CNBC reports that five other individuals have confessed to participating in the scheme.

According to a press release from the Justice Department, US Attorney Rachael S. Rollins was sharply critical of the defendants, stating they had misused the internet to “harass and intimidate” a couple for exercising their rights under the First Amendment. She also highlighted the two men had attempted to take advantage of their “positions of wealth and privilege” to abuse their victims.

Baugh received 57 months of prison time, after which he’ll be on 2 years of supervised release. The judge sentenced Harville to 2 years in prison as well as 2 years of supervised release. Both men will have to pay hefty fines as well.
