Does this Moneypak Virus sound familiar? In fact this is used in the other well-known virus “FBI Virus”. This is a little tricky virus, usually comes with the FBI virus. Just imagine if you were browsing the web and maybe you wanted to buy something or you are using Skype to talk your friend or family. All of sudden out of nowhere your computer goes to a blank screen and you get a message from the FBI, stating that you were using the browser for illegal purposes and you were viewing child pornography.
This message also demands you to pay a fine for viewing the content. In which they use the Moneypak virus Scheme. That message states that you need to pay a fine anywhere from 200 to 500 dollars. They will not ask you to pay by debit or your credit card. Instead what they want you to do is they want you to go and get a Moneypak card which you can find almost in any super stores or grocery stores, such as Walgreens, Wal-Mart etc.
After you get the card you would need to put whatever the fine amount is in the card. There is code in the back of the card that you would need to scratch off and enter the code. Once you enter the code in to the box, it is supposed to unlock the screen and go back to the normal screen right? But if that’s what you are thinking then you are wrong because you have fell into their trap! The way it works with the Moneypak virus is that when you give them the code you pretty much gave them the money, they use that source so that you won’t be able to trace them with the transaction. If it was from a credit or debit then obliviously you will know transaction and they will be caught.
This Moneypak virus is very threating to you and your personal information.
