At a loss over shopaholic wife

A man who has had enough of his wife's shopping addiction resorted to seeking help from the online shopping portal that his wife frequented.

China Press reported that the man, known as Razi Ali, wrote two messages to the portal's webmaster on Monday requesting for help to stop his shopaholic wife from splurging money on the shopping portal.

Razi apparently told the webmaster to cite "system error" or "server down" as reasons for her wife's failure to buy something from the portal.Unfortunately, the wife, known as Nuzaimah, found out about her husband's message.

She was unhappy about it and insisted that she had the right as a consumer.

His sole hope was dashed when the webmaster replied that the portal had no right to stop any individual from performing transactions online.
