Today on Segment 16, the guys talked about a variety of topics, but started off with Joe nearly drowning and then doing a spit take. Why? Monkey scams.

A local man sat down to talk with FOX-17 after he was conned out of thousands of dollars when trying to purchase a pet monkey online.

After initially sending the monkey breeder (those are things?) $400, he ended up sending additional money in the form of Amazon gift cards for a variety of different things.

The Better Business Bureau says that you should always make sure you're buying from a reputable source, and ask for proof of identification. The guy in this story got proof of ID from the seller, but... well... the guy sent along a copy of McLovin's fake I.D. from the movie Superbad.
