    eBay Sues Alleged 'Cookie Stuffers'

    SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - Three men defrauded eBay in a "cookie stuffing" scheme that made it appear the men's companies should be paid commissions, eBay claims in Federal Court. It sued Shawn Hogan and Digital Point Solutions, Todd Dunning and Kessler's Flying Circus, and Brian Dunning and Thunderwood Holdings.
    eBay says the men devised software programs that, "unbeknownst to the [computer] user, redirected the user's computer to the eBay Web site without the user actually clicking on an eBay advertisement link, or even becoming aware that they had left the page they were previously viewing. As a result, the eBay site would be prompted to drop an eBay cookie on the user's computer even though the user never clicked on an eBay advertisement or even realized that their computer had ever visited the eBay site."
    The complaint continues: "once the cookie was stuffed on the user's computer by one or more of the defendant's any future revenue actions initiated by that user when the user later visited eBay intentionally, and not as a result of any advertisement places by defendants, appeared to be eligible for commissions payable to one of the defendants".
    eBay claims the defendants also used deceptive means to prevent it from discovering the fraud, and to conceal it. eBay demands compensatory, treble and punitive damages. It is represented by David Eberhart with O'Melveny & Myers.

    Blackhat is the way to go. They're only naming $5,000 because it may be the minimum amount for them to file lawsuit. Shawn probably MADE tons more from 2003-current.

    oh Shawn really did that kind of things??? but why he have to do this when he already earn thousands of dollars from adsense each month.... i dont see a point for him to doing this... maybe someone else did it to get him in trouble.... i am sure.... i believe its a setup... meaning someone else did it to have these peoples in trouble....

    It's just a allegation and no one can prove that Shawn did is ,we should wait for the court's judgement

    It's easy to level charges against anybody with less proof..
