If you live in USA, be ready for a new ransomware that is actively spread in your country. It’s FBI Green Dot Moneypak Virus that has got on my friend’s computer some days ago. One more time I warned him to avoid downloading freeware or shareware because this is the way how this ransomware is distributed. FBI Green Dot Moneypak Virus is especially dangerous because it causes a fake message on your screen, which says that looks to be sent by the FBI. This message will lock your computer completely without allowing you get on the Internet and download the program for its removal. Similarly to other FBI Moneypak viruses, it claims you have been violating various laws, like watching copyrighted content or spreading it, and now you have to pay the fine. It asks to use Greendot MoneyPak for that.
I highly recommend staying away from this infection. Greendot MoneyPak is a payment system where you can find in many places, but paying $200 or other amount of money through this system won’t help you to unblock your computer. The only way what can be used to unlock it is to remove FBI Green Dot Moneypak Virus from the PC. There are many guides on the Internet explaining how you can do that. However, I recommend using this guide: green dot moneypak virus
