Police Warn Of Email That Contains A Virus

Police said an email virus was being sent to computers under the guise of coming from the FBI.
Police are warning people to be on the lookout for an email that contains a virus.

The email is sent under the guise of coming from the FBI.

If you open the email, a virus will be unleashed that will encrypt all the files on your computer and the sender will request $500 to remove the encryption.

Don't fall for it.

Employees of the FBI will send emails that end with @ic.fbi.gov, but the agency itself never sends out an email to individuals.

Investigators said if an address has any alteration like @fbi.gov or @us.fbi.gov or something similar, it's a scam or virus. 

It should be deleted and the deleted folder should be immediately emptied, according to investigators.
