The seller asked me to return the item for a refund and has had the item for 2 months (I shipped it back to her). I was never refunded by her so she is in possession of the item and my money. I am in Las Vegas and she is in Illinois. I consulted with a lawyer in Illinois and he said I will not get any of my travel expenses back for when I have to travel to Illinois for court. I would like to do small claims court so my fees are not astronomical. I'm confused. One lawyer says I need to sue in her state and another says I can file in my state.
