Such scareware applications as FBI Moneypak are based upon intimidation, which is meant to force infected systems’ owners to comply with all request posed by the addresser, without even thinking about its removal first. In this case it is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which, in reality, does not have anything to do with the scam. Cyber criminals, who have released the malign application, know that their demand of $100, declared in a fictitious pop-up message, would not gain much attention, if Windows users doubted its legitimacy. FBI logo at the top of the warning is meant to make Windows users focus on the message and consider paying the alleged fine. Unfortunately this could bring misfortune, and you should delete FBI Moneypak, if you notice this alert on your screen:
Even though the warning may seem to be authentic, and it appears to be written in an official manner, it is not real and should be ignored completely. Nonetheless, even if you start doubting the source, you might be blocked from having the warning and FBI Moneypak removed from your system, because it will be “locked”, waiting for the ransom to be paid. Even if you think that $100 is not a big price to be paid for regained control over the operating system, you should not give your money or disclose personal information to cyber criminals behind the attack, as it could be collected and used in further schemes. All that you have do is remove the cunning infection right away!
You should not postpone having FBI Moneypak deleted, and we recommend trusting automatic removal tools to convey the operation, because manual option could lead you to further system’s disruption, if you have not dealt or deleted ransomware before.
