Most of us have made mistakes with money in our lives. What’s your money horror story? Ever gotten caught up in a Venmo scam or been asked to pay the IRS in gift cards for taxes due? Sounds fishy but it happens to the best of us. Our roundtable today shares their scary money stories before the Halloween weekend.

Halfway through, Doug will share some of his toothbrush (?) related trivia.
