Browser Locked Scam

Bad news everyone.
I've been busted for viewing child porn. :(
Or bestiality porn.
Or rape porn.
Or downloading copyrighted material.
Or bulk-spamming.
Or another terrible internet crime of some kind. The FBI isn't quite sure what crime I've committed, and neither am I, but fortunately if I wire $300 within 24 hours, my legal problems might go away (for now).

419 Lottery Scam

Wow. The new FBI Director just emailed to tell me I won a foreign lottery. Almost 6 million bucks!
All I need to do to collect the jackpot is wire $565.00 to a "Mr. Mark Ben".
