How to Remove Interpol Virus Scam On iPhone/iPad In Safari

Hi, I was completely freaking out! Earlier today I was web searching on my iPhone 6 and suddenly a porn site popped up itself. After that I got a pop up message accusing me of watching child pornography and it said it could lead to 5-8 years and also a £100 fine? The pop up crashed my Safari so I can’t use Internet on my phone now. It says this message is sent by Interpol and Department of Cybercrime, and it asks me to pay a fine using one of payment systems like Ukash, Paysafecard or Paypal. Is it real? Or is it a scam from hackers? How do I get rid of the Interpol warning without paying £100?

Interpol Virus Scam Description:

These days, many popups are suddenly showing up on iPhone/iPad Safari which block user’s Internet access and even crash their web web browsers. Interpol Virus (aka. Interpol Department of Cybercrime virus) is one of the fake warning popups designed to trick innocent users located in European and North American countries. This virus is categorized as Ransomware that spreads through Spam emails filled with infected attachments, corrupted website and malicious pop-up ads. Once it is installed, it uses malicious JavaScript to ‘lock up’ Internet browsers like Safari and Chrome and then it uses the name of Interpol Department of Cybercrime or other similar authorities to falsely tell the user that the web browser is blocked as a penalty for online crimes like downloading copyright-protected music, watching pornographic videos or distributing illegal contents. After that, it demands a fee of £100 to be paid through either Ukash or Paysafecard in 24 or 48 hours, although paying this fee will not help to get the Internet access back and make your device safe. Be aware that this alert, which typically reports that if you don’t pay a fine your Apple ID will be blocked and your data will be erased, is completely fake and you must NOT pay the fine but remove Interpol virus from your iPhone or iPad.

Interpol Virus accuses users of viewing child pornography and orders them to pay a fine to avoid federal prosecution so people who are worried or embarrassed about having their online activities uncovered are easy to fall into this scam. According to the block page, this sum needs to be paid via Ukash or PaySafecard, and then a code should be given from this prepaid card, afterwards users need to input the code and submit the payment through the embedded field otherwise a federal case would be opened against them. Paying that fine may look like the only solution to get the phone working fine again but this is not the good choice. Interpol Virus message on the iPhone/iPad is fake which is designed by cyber criminals who attempt to trick you and swindle your money. That means nothing will change even after money is transferred. Don’t waste your money in paying such malware.

Interpol Virus is not easy to go away because once it gets installed it will not let you leave the locked page. The Interpol virus pop up can freeze your Safari browser whenever you try to get online. Restarting the device doesn’t work at all:

“I felt like my heart just dropped when the Interpol virus pop-up came on my iPad. I clicked on a link and all of a sudden I got this weird message about Interpol lock and that I have to pay a fine. It had my internet locked. The page was labelled ‘Interpol’ and said I was in violation of watching child porn or something. It listed fines and penalties for each and directed me to pay a fine through Ukash, Paysafecard or Paypal. It is really freaking me out! Is it real? Do I need to pay the fine in order to get my Internet access back? How can I remove it off my ipad?
