Need help of removing Onevanilla FBI warning. I didn’t do anything disgusting like it said. I have been wronged. I was checking my email and it just popped up. Now it is asking for 500 USD. What can I do to fix FBI lock?
Device is locked by FBI for illegal porn? Does the FBI monitor users on porn? Is it real? How to get rid of false accusation? We can tell you that Onevanilla FBI warning is not real. Why is it able to block your device since it is fake? Behind this warning, a malicious virus is installed which is spread by the cyber criminals to swindle money out of innocent users. It locks device and demands a fine to unlock. Hence, it has another name, the ransomware. This virus is similar to the Cyber police, DOJ scam virus and other members of the ransomware family.
You didn’t do anything wrong, but why did they block your device? The virus takes mobile device hostage even though you didn’t conduct any illegal activities. Onevanilla FBI malware sneaks into your device and installs itself without your permission and notice. When the warning popped up, you might be browsing for birthday gift or holiday present, watching a funny video, reading e-book or checking email. Everything happened so fast. You got no time to react while it accused you of illegal activities.
Onevanilla FBI virus is very tricky. It steals the name of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and makes up bogus alert so as to scare you into paying a fraudulent penalty. On the warning, the “FBI” says your device is locked due to involving illegal activities, such as downloading copyrighted material and viewing pornography. As a consequence, a fine of 500 USD needs to be paid to end criminal case. It usually gives you 24 to 72 hours to prepare money and pay the penalty via prepaid card. Why do they require prepaid card? It is because it is hard to trace money after they are paid via prepaid card just like you pay via cash. They commonly use Vanilla card, Wal-Mart gift card, Ukash, iTune gift card and more. A countdown is placed on the screen, telling you how much time left to send fine. That makes victims feel anxiety. Many users were afraid that they would miss the time to get rid of trouble with the FBI, thus paying the fine right away. Actually, it is wrong to send them fine. They are not the FBI.
To ensure you will pay the 500 USD fine, more tricks have been used. The Onevanilla FBI virus has the capability to block your Internet and locks the whole system. It is able to block Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari etc. Every time you open browser app, the scary FBI threat hijacks browser immediately before you type any web address or click on anything. It does not allow you access the Internet. Not like a normal popup notification, it does not disappear though you quit browser and restart the device for many times.
This virus can be more aggressive. Fake FBI malware blocks the whole screen. You are not able to use any app or access the home screen. Though you installed anti-virus software, it would be the first one that the virus would like to block to prevent being removed. As the virus is installed, it always is there like your Facebook and Google app no matter you turn the device on or off. The difference is this malware is able to take over the whole. Most importantly, it is harmful to your device and personal data. Sometimes, it even disables the power button temporarily to prevent you from shutting down the device. No matter what you do, the Onevanilla FBI keeps popping up on the screen, telling that you got trouble.
To make the warning authentic, it grabs your name, location, device system, contact, threatening that you will be taken to court. Your friends will know what you did and be interrogated too. After the virus controls the device, it takes a picture of your face and displays on the screen without consent, saying that your profile has been uploaded on the FBI criminal center database. A lawsuit will be issued against you and you will have to spend years in jail if you don’t pay the fine in time. You probably believe that you did violate the law, thus the FBI collects those information to arrest you. It seems to be real, but it is a scam virus. We understand that no one want to get arrested and go to jail, but do not try to get rid of this false accusation by paying the fine as it demands. That will not help. You should note that the real police will not inform you of a criminal case via a popup on mobile. They also don’t wrong people and force them to pay a fine.
