My brand new Sumsung Note4 was blocked by Ministry of Public Safety Canada Virus stating that I was watching child porn and I sent terrorist like emails via spamming. The fact was that I did nothing illegal online. Anyway, now I can’t do anything on my phone, even sent message or make a phone call. It asked me to pay for $250, or it will send me to jail. I am so scared. What should I do now? Please help!
