    I am requesting an attorney on my own. I have been disabled for two years, and had 13 surgeries since March 2011. I sold all my nursing uniforms and some other items from August 2015 through October 2015 and Ebay has pocketed ALL OF MY MONEY except a few dollars. Will someone help me? How do I get my $989 back? I have proof, because I recently went to my cell phone and a new area in the messages was added to phones. I printed where it says, “Sorry your item didn’t sell” and list a delivery date of November 9 (2015) I printed all 65 of them out!! I sold some items that I really wanted, but needed the money. Please help me.
