Lori N. of Albuquerque was in a car accident and is trying to sell part of her body that isn't broken
People try to sell a lot of strange things on eBay. Recently an uninhabited 800-year-old Tuscan village was put up for sale on the online auction site.
But now, one user is trying to sell something that is much more personal.
A woman who was identified as Lori N. in an eBay ad was trying to sell her "slightly used soul."
"What I'm gonna deliver is the opportunity for someone to save my soul," Lori said to NBC2. "They can save it through prayer, they can save it through conversion. They're also gonna get a certificate detailing the white and black marks on my soul."

She set a starting bid of $2,000 and while there was a lot of interest, no one made a bid on the post, which has since been taken down.
Lori feels like she is at the end of her rope and admits the ad is a cry for help after a terrible car accident in 2007. She was a passenger when the car she was in was struck by a drunk driver. Lori was in a coma for three weeks and when she woke up discovered she had broken her hip, pelvis, leg, collarbone, sternum ribs and had a collapsed lung. She also lost a breast.
She is a freelance writer, but she can't write much anymore and gets by on part-time work and making jewelry. She figures that because her body isn't in good shape she should market her soul.

She isn't the first person to try to sell a soul on eBay. A University of Washington student sold his for $400 back in February. His just happened to slip through the cracks of eBay's monitoring system. The company has blocked auctions for souls mid-way in the past and it looks like that happened to Lori's ad.
They have a policy against ads selling humans, bodies and body parts with the only exceptions being skulls and skeletons for medical use.
Lori's ad has now been pulled from the site.
