eBay has agreed to pay a $3 million fine for engaging in a harassment campaign against a couple in Massachusetts who ran a critical newsletter about the company. The criminal offenses charged against eBay include stalking, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice. The campaign involved sending disturbing packages to the couple's home, such as live cockroaches, a bloody pig mask, and a funeral wreath. The settlement, which is the maximum fine for eBay's charges, requires the company to retain an independent corporate compliance monitor and improve its compliance program. eBay's CEO has apologized for the company's conduct and stated that changes have been made to prevent future incidents. The harassment included not only sending disturbing packages but also surveilling the couple, placing a GPS tracking device on their car, and posting their address on Craigslist. Several employees have been convicted for their involvement in the crimes, including the ringleader who was sentenced to 57 months in prison. eBay has terminated all employees involved in the campaign.
