Scorned boyfriend chops couple's belongings in half

A scorned boyfriend chopped all of the belongings he shared with his former lover in half.

A German eBay user, called der.juli, began posting the listings on the web marketplace, which included half a teddy bear, bed, sofa, iPhone and their car, after the couple decided to get divorced.

He wrote alongside the items: "Thank you for 12 beautiful years, Laura. You really deserve half.

"Greeting also to my successor."

However, the bizarre listings have since been unveiled as a hoax set up by legal firm Deutsche Anwaltauskunft to highlight the problem that "too few married couples take precautions for the case of a possible separation" leading to " bitter fights" over property and even children.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, each item was sold on eBay with all profits going to charity.
