Last year I made the mistake of getting in the middle of Black Friday madness at one of our local big box stores. It got pretty crazy. I saw two women get into a knife fight over a doorbuster deal. That's when I made the decision to skip Black Friday this year and wait for the deals online on Cyber Monday.

Unfortunately, scammers have decided to take advantage of the Cyber Monday hype as well and use it to help them steer people to phishing sites and malware links. In this week's featured article, we'll look at some Tips for Avoiding Cyber Monday Scams.

What's your craziest Black Friday shopping experience? Let us know in the comments section below:
