The first accusations against the Construction Company Bancoop came to the Public Prosecution Service in 2006. With approximately 87 million reais in debt, the Banking Union cooperative faces accusations of stellarity, false ideology and misappropriation for failing to deliver sixteen projects, which harmed 6,292 owners. Ten of these condominiums were passed on to other contractors, but six remain as skeletons haunting the capital, with no plans to be finalized by Bancoop. Check out details of the buildings:

How about having a miniature replica of yourself? This is what the company MiniYou proposes, which creates custom ceramic dolls for its customers. The technique is to "scan" the interested person on a turntable for three minutes. This file is sent to a 3D printer; after that, it takes four hours to create the product. The pieces are between 5 and 22 centimeters and cost from 199.90 to 1099 reais. The deadline for delivery is fifteen days. Information at www.miniyou.com.
