Welcome to AC.

That will be malware, nothing to do with the FBI, but an attempt to get you to pay money.

First, boot into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all third-party apps.
Next, go to Settings, Security, Phone Administrators, and disable the obviously malicious one in there, whatever name it may be using.
Third, go to Settings, Apps, All, scroll to the malicious app, and select Uninstall.
Fourth, Power Off and Restart the phone, which will take you out of Safe and into Normal Mode.

Lastly, report it to the true FBI, and Google, if you wish.

Lastly lastly, please let us know if all that works, since other people have the same problem with such malware. :)
