WSJ describes an insider threat within Amazon.com.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon employees have been bribed to leak corporate data – such as sales metrics and the personal details of reviewers – to sellers:
In exchange for payments ranging from roughly $80 to more than $2,000, brokers for Amazon employees in Shenzhen are offering internal sales metrics and reviewers’ email addresses, as well as a service to delete negative reviews and restore banned Amazon accounts, the people said. Amazon is investigating a number of cases involving employees, including some in the U.S., suspected of accepting these bribes, according to people familiar with the matter.
According to the WSJ, Amazon has confirmed that it is investigating the claims – and any staff found behaving inappropriately could face termination and potential legal action.
