Prior to airing 60 Minutes eBay correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi’s article on March 26, 2023, we reached out to eBay and its former CEO, Devin Wenig, for comment on the report “Silicon Valley Scandal.” I was.
They told 60 Minutes:
The misconduct of these former employees is wrong and we will do what is fair and appropriate to address what Steiner went through.The events of 2019 should never have happened. As eBay expressed to Mr. and Mrs. Steiner, we are very sorry for what they endured.
As the U.S. Attorney’s Office noted when the matter first came to light, eBay cooperated fully with the government’s investigation, stating that “eBay is committed to helping state and federal authorities find out what happened and They were very cooperative with the investigation to help gather evidence of the crime.”
I am appalled at what happened and my heart goes out to Steiner. They did not deserve what happened to them. The outrageous behavior of several former employees does not represent my values or the company I have led over the years. Had I known what was going on, I would have stopped immediately.
