Moneygram Virus is nothing else but a new version of FBI MoneyPak Virus from the Ukash Virus family, which means that this computer infection locks down your computer having only one thing in mind - your money. This ransomware program infects users in the United States of America and makes it seem as though their computers have been locked by the FBI on behalf of the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA). However, the entire thing is a scam, and you should ignore the message displayed on your screen by Moneygram Virus altogether.

This infection may also be called FBI Cybercrime Division Virus, FBI MoneyPak Virus or even International Cyber Security Protection Alliance virus. It depends on which keywords users use to search for the information about this program. Just like all the other ransomware infections distributed by Urausy Trojan Moneygram Virus make use of alternative payment systems to collect your money. It utilizes MoneyGram and MoneyPak to do so. Alternative payment systems allow Moneygram Virus and similar infections to collect money even from those users who do not have credit cards. Therefore, if you get infected with Moneygram Virus, you have to stay calm and ignore the notification displayed by Moneygram Virus:

Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.

You have been violating "Copyright and Related Rights Law" (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyright content, thus infringing Article 1, Section 2, Clause 8, also known as the Copyright of the Criminal Code of the United State of America.

Fines may only be paid within 72 hours after the infringement. As soon as 72 hours elapse, the possibility to pay the fine expires, and a criminal case is initiated against you automatically within the next 72 hours!

To unblock the computer you must pay the fine through MoneyPak or MoneyGram xpress Packet of $300.

Nevertheless, even if you pay the ransom fee, Moneygram Virus will not disappear anywhere. You will only lose your money and your computer will remain infected with this threat. To remove Moneygram Virus, you need to unlock your desktop. Follow the instructions below to do so:
