it is FBI virus or usually known as FBI Moneypak virus! Can FBI lock your computer? It is yes and no. In most cases, it deceives you to believe IP address blocked by FBI agent and requests immediate fines from you to avoid further criminal charges. This Moneypak virus is one of the most common versions of the FBI virus attacks that attempt to get the user to pay a $100 or $200 fine with a Moneypak card for violating copyright law and participating is sending SPAM emails.
