What is Paysafecard Virus?
There are tens of different Paysafecard Virus forms, geographically targeted at computer owners living in Canada, U.S., Great Britain, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Greece, Poland and other European countries. The infection is a ransomware which enters a computer, locks the screen, disabling your access to the computer, and then presents a misleading warning asking to pay a fine to have the computer unlocked. Since schemers can attack systems in different geographical locations, they also have made sure that devious ransom alerts are presented with coinciding languages and are introduced with mimicked national authorities’ credentials (logos, names, coats of arms, etc.).
Some of the most famous Paysafecard Virus ransomwares are International Police Association virus, United States Cyber Security virus, West Yorkshire Police virus, Policia de Seguranca Publica Portuguese virus or Cuerpo National De Policia virus. Even though all of these malignant programs work according to the same methods, their money collection systems might vary. Without a doubt, Paysafecard name can be found on most ransomware notifications, but so can MoneyPak or the infamous Ukash. These three names are legitimate and belong to the authentic online money payment systems. Despite being authentic, these systems are almost impossible to track, which is why schemers have decided to use them for illegitimate profit gathering.

So, it is vital to ignore any warnings allegedly sent to you by FBI, Interpol or your national Police authority, if you do not want to be tricked into paying sums varying from $50 to 500kr.
