(WZZM) -- 13 is On Your Side with a consumer alert for computer owners. The Better Business Bureau says hackers are spreading a virus that makes it look like the FBI is locking your computer.

The virus posts an official FBI seal saying federal investigators have frozen your computer for illegally downloading material from websites.

The message gives very detailed instructions on how you can pay a fine to have your computer unlocked through "Green.MoneyPak" which works like a gift card.

The president of West Michigan's Better Business Bureau says at least one person in Allendale has been targeted so far.
