Fake pool: New owners of units in a high-rise building in Changsha, in central China, are not very happy. The property developer didn’t accurately explain the amenities of their new home, and the buyers thought they were getting something luxurious. The buyers were told that the area included lush vegetation and a pool. However, the pool was actually blue plastic on the ground, which looks like a pool when viewed from a high balcony, but most certainly is not. The park-like vegetation also turned out to be non-existent. The developers are hoping to work things out with the new residents of the units.
Bad burglar: A Polish man didn’t make a very good burglar. He broke into an older couple’s house when they were away on a holiday. Apparently, Lukasz Chojnowski made himself right at home for a couple of days. When owners Pat Dyson and Martin Holtby returned, they found Chojnowski sleeping in their bed. The man had been evicted from his rental accommodation and, as he had nowhere to go, decided to break into the empty house. He didn’t steal anything and cleaned up after himself. The owners called police, but were not angry because Chojnowski was tidy and apparently didn’t mean any harm.
