RANSOM VIRUSES (BitLocker is specifically addressed):

"t's also a risky business. Sometimes, after the ransom is paid, the criminals send the key to decrypt the files, Savage said. Other times, they take the money and run, leaving the files inaccessible. Some victims pay the ransom, only to get hit again."
