These scams keep spreading around and trick PC users into thinking that they have a serious problem with some governmental authority, such as police, e-crime unit or even FBI.

In order to avoid such virus, you should ignore all pop-up ads that push you to take a part in a survey. If you see such warning, just click it out without trying to 'unlock' the survey warning and scan your PC with reputable anti-spyware.
