Fake anti-virus software falsely claims that a computer is infected with viruses, and renders the machine inoperable with bogus warnings unless blackmail is paid.

In Romany, this trick is called bujo ("bag") after one traditional format: the mark is told that the curse is in his money; he brings money in a bag to have the spell cast over it, and leaves with a bag of worthless paper. This scam got a new lease on life in the electronic age with the virus hoax.

The traditional romance scam has now moved into Internet dating sites.

The con actively cultivates a romantic relationship which often involves promises of marriage.

In a twist on the Nigerian fraud scheme, the mark is told he is helping someone overseas collect debts from corporate clients.

Large cheques stolen from businesses are mailed to the mark.
