What can the Fake FBI Virus Do?

As soon as the FBI scam virus sneaks into your device, it displays fake police threat to swindle money out of you. On Samsung tablet or other Android devices, it is able to lock the whole screen or only lock your Internet browser. On ios devices, it blocks your internet browser, such as Safari and Google Chrome.
