Hackers who invented this scam tell scared users that in order to unlock their browsers they need to pay the fine in the amount of USD 300, or similar amount, through MoneyPak, by indicating the PIN code of MoneyPak in the respective section of the locked window of your browser. The fake Interpol alert says that this is the fine paid into the US Treasury, whereas the reality is that this is the ransom that goes directly into the pockets of cyber frauds who have invented this scam.
