My Samsung Galaxy s7 is taken over by the fbi Cyber Crime and I’m not sure how to get rid of it. Now I can’t do anything on my phone and I can’t power off it. How do I safe my phone?
Descriptions of FBI Cyber Crime Scam
FBI Cyber Crime Scam showing the fake message and locks users phone, tablet and computer screen and claims the user illegally visited and downloaded something. Then, almost like a ransom demand, the user is given an ultimatum to pay a fine to unlock the device and stay out of jail. The malicious ransomware app will lock you out of your Android phone and applications, so whenever you’ll try to unlock or use your phone, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of $300 in the form of MoneyPak, Ukash, Paysafecard or MoneyGram Xpress voucher. The malware’s authors prefer these payment services because transactions made through them cannot be reversed and are hard to trace.
“To tell the truth I have browsed some pornographic websites and then FBI Cyber Crime warning page pop up on my screen, I’m so scare, will I get caught to the jail?”
It is a scam, you should always keep in mind that the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other police agency will never lock down your Android phone . There are different variations of the virus claiming to be the FBI complete with nasty allegations, and all meant to scare you into forking over your cash. If you get a message from the so-called FBI cyber crime department, your Samsung galaxy was probably infected with a “Ransomware” virus likely from clicking on an unfamiliar e-mail, malicious links or unsafe advertising pop-ups, visiting pornographic website or downloading attachment from spam emails. But it does not mean that you are absolutely safe, the virus will be dangerous for your data and no one knows if the malware can install other threats to the phone in order to get your personal information.

Why do FBI Cyber Crime use Ukash? I’ve paid on it, can I get my money back?
Ukash is known to be the most common way to pay for this cyber police. When you pay for something online through legit processors, it is possible that the payment can still be canceled. But it is impossible when you are paying via this Ukash. Just like the famous FBI Moneypak virus, many victims still look for a way to get their money back. All I can suggest is that you should try to contact with the bank to see if there’s any chance to cancel this payment. Otherwise, you should renew the information of your credit card and any cards that you use to pay so that you won’t be suffering from more damages. Then please try to get rid of this Interpol Virus Scam as soon as possible. In order to do that, manual removal is the most appropriate way to completely uninstall this program from your devicec. There isn’t a perfect program to deal with it successfully. And with manual removal process, you don’t have to reinstall Windows which takes much longer time and may even cause damages to hard disks due to frequently reinstalling.
