The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been flooded with calls from people in the Basin with a weird message popping up on their computers.
It's a virus telling the user the FBI is freezing their computer due to criminal activity.
It also says you need to pay $200 to retrieve your files and avoid charges
Officials say this is not a legitimate message, it's a computer virus and therefore you should not click on it.
If you do find it happening on your computer, you can get rid of it with most anti-virus software and then you're asked to report it at www.ic3.gov.
