SOME people will buy and sell anything for a quick buck… but one woman from Galicia has taken that philosophy to another level.
Not happy selling sunglasses to beach revellers or shares to stockbrokers, Maria Angeles Duran has done the unthinkable and sold off the Sun.
But after spinning €1200 on €1/ m² plots online, eBay has stepped in and banned the 54-year-old Spanish entrepreneur from her solar venture.
Claiming the sales were a con, eBay has stopped all future deals going through.
But an unrelenting Duran is not happy with that and is fighting her corner, using a loophole in the ‘Outer Space Treaty’ to take the trading website to court.
“There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law,” she said.
She is in fact claiming €10,000 as compensation following eBay’s ban.
