As you probably already know, today is Cyber Monday, which is always the first Monday after Thanksgiving. I say "always" like Cyber Monday has been around forever, but it's only been called that since 2005.
You've got phony charities out there trying to making you sorry for being altruistic, puppy fraud scams taking your money and giving you a broken heart, and now a couple of other scams are making headway, too.
