Shared on April 3, 2023

Sharyn Alfonsi for CBS News’s 60 Minutes:

In 2022, users sold almost $74 billion worth of goods through eBay. But last month, buried in an otherwise dull annual financial disclosure—a note on page 105 hinted at a scandal inside the Silicon Valley giant.

It refers to an inquiry from the U.S. Attorney about the stalking and harassment of the editor and publisher of an online newsletter at the hands of eBay employees.

I came across this story over the weekend and was surprised I didn’t see it elsewhere over the last week. The level of escalation from the start is mind-blowing.
