MoneyPak Virus
Deception is a very common tactic that cyber criminals use to take advantage of people. The MoneyPak Virus is a type of malware that is categorized as ransomware and is one of the viruses that utilize such deception. The MoneyPak Virus is among the family of ransomware viruses that causes people’s computer to display false criminal accusations. The main goal of the MoneyPak Virus is to get the computer’s user to pay for a fake fine. This ultimately gives the cyber criminal access to your payment information. Down the line, this could lead to identity theft. The MoneyPak Virus accomplishes its goal of getting someone’s payment information by locking down parts of their computer and demanding payment in order to regain its function. To bolster the effect, the virus poses as a law enforcement agency that is regionally close to you. For example, if you live in the USA, the virus may try to impersonate the Federal Bureau of Investigation. You will find the instructions to remove the MoneyPak virus at the bottom of this page.

The MoneyPak Virus will claim that you have been discovered to be participating in illegal activity and as a result your computer has been locked. The display window that says your computer has been locked will claim you have been found to be involved in illegal activities or in possession of illegal videos. It will also have signs that were made to help make you believe you are actually being contacted by real law enforcement such as a convincing FBI seal. This is why the virus is called ransomware. It essentially holds your computer hostage until you pay the fee that the program demands. The disguise of law enforcement is only there to help you believe your computer isn’t infected with a virus. You should never believe any program that says you have broken the law. Law enforcement would never contact a person through their computer. Furthermore, if a person actually had committed serious computer crimes, they would not just have to pay a small fine.
