People are putting gems on their eyebrows!
When we look back, 2017 featured a bunch of really, truly BAD brow trends. What’s that about? Why is everyone shaving parts of their eyebrows or making them wavy or dying them crazy colors?? It’s a little insane, and if you thought it couldn’t get MORE insane, enter the jewel brow.
Jewel brows are exactly what they sound like. Gals are lining their brows with gemstones to give them more of a glitzy look.
The look is coined by The Gypsy Shrine who wanted to give people another option for jeweling up their day-to-day makeup looks. It’s all about the brows these days – so it’s time to really glitz it up! (And take a fire selfie for the ‘gram!)
Those aged 20-29 had a higher loss than those in their 70's.
Move over, grandma and grandpa. Your Millennial grandkids reported losing money to financial scams last year than you did, new government data shows.
In all, 40% of Americans in their twenties who reported fraud in 2017 indicated they lost money to the schemes, the Federal Trade Commission said last week in its annual databook of consumer complaints.
The percentage surpassed the 18% of U.S. consumers 70 or older who reported they lost money to fraudsters last year, the FTC said.
However, the median loss reported by adults in their seventies was $621, and for those aged 80 or over it was $1,092. Both age groups reported a higher median loss than the $400 for those aged 20-29, the data showed.
The findings emerged from the first year in which the federal watchdog agency broke out consumer complaint data by age groups.
Overall, the data includes 2017 complaints reported by 2.68 million consumers, down from the 2.98 million who reported fraud, identity theft and other consumer problems in 2016.
Imposter scams, frauds when someone pretends to be a government official, a loved one in trouble, or someone else, were the third most common complaint. Consumers reported they lost more money to imposter scams — $328 million in all — than any other type of fraud, the report showed.
