Don't pay, it's just a scam. It's just a screenlocker, so you should be able to just kill it by opening Task Manager, or restarting your computer in safe mode and running some scans to kill it (MalwareBytes, HitmanPro, etc.).


For assistance in removing it, you should post in the Malware Removal forums. And be patient, everyone on this forum is a volunteer.

There have been numerous fake and scam ransomwares over the years using names from various law enforcement agencies of the United States and other countries. Grinler, the site owner of Bleeping Computer has created many removal guides.


More removal guides:

As noted by Demonslay335, if you need individual assistance with removal, you should follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide. When you have done that, start a new topic and post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.
