    my phone says the FBI has seized my phone and wants me to pay a $300 fine. It wants me to buy a money pack to transfer money to them. What do i do?

    Probably not a virus, but an ad network app. You really should be more careful on what you download or where you download stuff from. I'd run an Ad Network detector (I've used Lookout's before and I can recommend it), it should tell you which apps are pushing ads to your phone.

    Trust me, if the FBI had 'seized' your phone you wouldn't have it with you right now, they would not ask for money through the same phone, and if they were even interested in your phone chances are you wouldn't be asking this on a forum.
