Virus Bundespolizei is a German ransomware that should never be trusted no matter what it claims or does. As soon as this virus gets inside the system, it displays a large alert titled: "BUNDESPOLIZEI Achtung! Ein Vorgang illegaler Aktivitaten wurde erkannt" what can be translated to something like German Federal Police caught you violating various laws. In order to look more trustworthy, Virus Bundespolizei displays your IP address on this alert and locks the system completely down. The reason of doing all this unwanted activity is really simple - Virus Bundespolizei seeks to convince its victims to pay a 100 euro fine in exchange for the unlock code. However, this ransomware should never be trusted no matter what it claims because it seeks only to get your money and credit card details. If you have also been infected with Virus Bundespolizei, ignore its alert because it claims completely misleading information. Keep in mind that legitimate organizations, such as Federal Police, don't warn their victims in such way and don't lock their computers.

In addition, this alert offers to pay a fine if you want to unlock your machine through Ukash or Paysafecard systems. However, you are highly recommended to ignore this alert and remove Virus Bundespolizei from your computer.

I ran into this yesterday when someone brought their computer in to be fixed. Of note is that in addition to the IP and locked "Bundespolizei" screen with payment options, it had disabled the use of all removeable media and to the hard drive itself through Windows Explorer. Even when in safe mode you could not access any drives through explorer and would give errors saying the device could not be found, though the screen lock would not take effect in safe mode. When using an admin command prompt to navigate the folders were able to be accessed just fine and this was the only way I could find the delete the relevant files since access was blocked through explorer. It had installed itself into C:ProgramData(random text string). After deletion and a malwarebytes scan it came up clean and we couldnt find any remnants.
