All of us know what is FBI. So fraud guys also do. This time they have been creative and bold since choosing FBI to be their scam ‘trademark’. So what FBI Moneypak, also known as FBI Green Dot Virus, is all about and how to remove it?

FBI Moneypak Virus

FBI Moneypak, also known as Reveton, is a ransomware infection that sneaks into your computer by using security holes. Once injected, this infection prevents all your programs from running. Moreover, a constantly displayed fake FBI screen states that your PC user has been involved in illegal activity such as copyrighted material, torrents, child pornography, etc. Also demands a penalty fine of $100 or $200 to be paid in order to unlock your PC within 72 hours by using Moneypak cards.

Reveton USA

Moneypak is a legitimate trademark of prepaid credit cards that can be purchased at Walgreens type stores. Do not fall into believing that you are tracked by FBI and have to pay a false fine. We advise you to remove FBI Moneypak Virus from your system as soon as possible so you can operate your PC normally again.

    My computer will not access the Internet, even though I have all bars and excellent connection, so downloading anti virus material is not possible at the moment. I tried troubleshooting and it said I cannot access Internet in safe mode and network or whatever that alternate start up was

  2. Ro

    Nothing is working, I’m now stuck on Safe Mode with command prompt (because me safemode with networking only shuts off and this is a old vista), I made an User called TeeSupport which is what I’m using now, what should I do, restart and make another User or something? because the other SafeModes aren’t working. Please hurry back on help.
