New Internet Porn Scam
I hadn’t heard of this one before. In New Zealand, people viewing adult websites—it’s unclear whether these are honeypot sites, or malware that notices the site being viewed—get a pop-up message claiming it’s from the NZ Police and demanding payment of an instant fine for viewing illegal pornography.
EDITED TO ADD (2/12): There’s a Japanese variant of this called “one-click fraud.”
