Madoff mask a natural for Halloween

Don't be alarmed if Bernard Madoff comes knocking this Halloween. The real Madoff pleaded guilty to a decades-long Ponzi scheme that cost investors millions of dollars. The New York financier is now serving a 150-year prison sentence.

But he'll be joining the witches and ghosts on spook night.

Madoff masks are at retail stores and on Web sites that sell costumes. One firm that makes a rubber Madoff mask, Rubie's Costume Company, has distributed more than 15,000 of them to stores across the country.

But Executive Vice President Howard Beige predicts Madoff will be outsold by Michael Jackson and Super Mario Brothers.
