  • Fraud: eBay buyer lied about Louis Vuitton bag and sent back fake 

    As a first-time mother, I need extra money – I no longer work as I take care of our baby. I put several bags and some unwanted items from around the house up for sale on eBay and this went well.  Then I listed a Louis Vuitton Trouville bag for £450 with best offer accepted. Complying with eBay’s listing policy, I took photos of every angle of the bag, showing that it was in excellent condition. The zip ran smoothly and there was no damage to the canvas. I included a detailed description on the details page. A buyer made an offer of £330, which I accepted because I needed the money to pay the bills for that week.  They wanted to pay through PayPal outside eBay. I didn’t agree to this as I thought

  • Britain just got its first concrete sign that Brexit will destroy the economy

    Britain just got its first concrete sign that the British exit from the European Union, or Brexit, will crush the nation's economy after a grim set of PMI data released by Markit on Friday morning showed a "dramatic deterioration" in the economy since the UK voted to leave the EU. Markit's flash PMI readings for the UK's economy showed that composite output fell to its lowest level since March 2009, during the tail end of the global financial crisis. The PMI, or purchasing managers index, figures from Markit are given as a number between 0 and 100.

  • Father of EU divorce clause demands tough stance on British exit

    By Crispian Balmer ROME (Reuters) - A former Italian premier who wrote the European Union divorce clause that Britain is poised to trigger said on Thursday that Brussels should offer no concessions to London in looming negotiations to quit the trading bloc. "When it comes to the economy they have to lose," said Giuliano Amato, explaining that only then might the British reconsider abandoning the world's largest single market. Britain voted in a referendum on June 23 to leave the EU.

  • Saudi billionaire dies weeks after model ex-wife granted £75 million in divorce settlement

    If Dr Juffali had died before proceedings had been concluded, Ms Estrada’s three-year battle to claim the cash would have failed. However, the settlement is now legally binding. High Court Family Division judge Mrs Justice Roberts had ordered the sum to be paid by 4pm on July 29 but this is likely be delayed while Dr Juffali’s affairs are put in order. American-born Ms Estrada was said to be “devastated” at news of her former husband’s death. She and Dr Juffali, who was chairman of Saudi Arabia's EA Juffali and Brothers, met in 2000 and married soon afterwards. Dr Juffali then decided to take another wife, a 25-year-old Lebanese model, and divorced Ms Estrada under Islamic law without her knowledge.

  • Calvin Harris Throws Shade At Taylor Swift After Her Spat With Kim Kardashian

    Taylor Swift’s PR-week-from-hell continued last night as her ex boyfriend Calvin Harris took to social media to chuck some (more) shade at his former love. The Scottish DJ arguably kicked off Taylor’s downfall last week when he had enough of her people trying to badmouth him in the press after she allegedly cheated on him with Tom Hiddleston whilst he was in hospital following a car crash. Taking to Twitter, Calv warned his ex that he refused to let her “bury” him like she tried to “bury” Katy Perry last year.

  • People are starting to get seriously worried about the looming crisis in Portugal

    Two big issues in Europe are dominating economic thinking: the UK's decision to leave the European Union, and Italy's litany of problems, including an ongoing banking crisis and a referendum that could topple the government. Portugal's economy has long been a source of some concern for European policymakers, but the risks surrounding the country are now beginning to crystallise and reach a wider audience, as an ongoing banking crisis — not quite equal to the one in Italy, but significant nonetheless — and a generally sclerotic economy, dominate people's thinking in the Iberian state. Numerous banks, international organisations, and economic research firms, including HSBC, Brown Brothers Harriman, and the IMF have already warned about the fragile state of Portugal's banks and its wider economy.

Italian authorities have reported a jump in the number of migrants who have left Libya this week on overcrowded boats in search of a better life in Europe, as people smugglers take advantage of calm seas and hot summer weather.
