  7. I love selling on ebay but after 15 years and 3 moves someone from California hacked my eBay account and now I’m afraid to start again. I tried to contact ebay but never could reach anyone. Could sure use the income.

    • Carolyn, did you try calling eBay? I’ve always been able to reach a rep when I’ve called. If your account has been hacked, they definitely take that very serious and can help. 🙂
