I’m living in Nederland but I have never done any illegal things against the law. But last night, my computer was locked by a warning. It told me that I would be arrest by the police if I didn’t pay the money through Ukash. I’m freaking out! I searched this warning through the Internet and most of sites said it’s a Politie Nederland Virus. I’m still confused. Do I have to send the money? But I think it’s a scam since I have not done anything as it accused. I really want I can get my computer back. I have many important documents in it!
