New Zealand Police Ransomware is a completely misleading notification that may show its ugly face on a PC infected with a Trojan horse. When displayed, the New Zealand Police Ransomware message will read like it has come directly from law enforcement or local a New Zealand Police department making false claims of detecting illegal activity on the affected computer. It will bring PC user’s attention to it stating that it has blocked the computer due to violations of laws. The New Zealand Police Ransomware threat message will then go on to claim that the PC may be unlocked if a fine is paid up through Ukash, paysafecard or moneypak.
