BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — Police in the Michigan city of Battle Creek have advised a woman that she shouldn’t expect to see a monkey, or her money.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports a 25-year-old woman contacted police Tuesday to report she lost $350 trying to buy a monkey from the African country of Cameroon.

The woman says she and her roommate found what they thought was a reputable website and received pictures and information about monkeys.

The so-called seller offered the monkey for $50. She sent it but received no simian.

After more back and forth, the woman shelled out $300 in two more payments but her contact wanted more money for a cage, license and shots.

Authorities smell a scam and say they are trying to gather her contact information.
