Service Canada Scam

I got encrypted with ransomware at work: Town of Midland paid 8 bitcoins to cybercriminals to decrypt servers: staff report - Barrie | and then service Canada called me demanding bitcoins be paid through the ransomware to avoid the magistrate.

I am entitled to the CERB. Possible malware attack grinds production to a halt at Honda plants in Alliston
