My android phone has been blocked. It says that I have violated Article 274-Copyright. But I swear I have never done that. It takes control of my phone completely. Only the warning page is available on my phone. It says that I have to pay for the fine with £ 300 to unblock my phone, or I will be put into jail for 5 years. I don’t want to get involved with the police. Should I just pay for the fine as it says? Will the police warning be released automatically after I transfer the money to them? Is it possible that they steal the name and logo of Garda Síochána Ireland’s National Police Service and try to swindle my money off? If this is a scam, what should I do? Should I call the police? How to get rid of it? I am so worried. Please help me out.
Garda Síochána Ireland’s National Police Service is a special form of virus which has been created the cyber hackers. They write this program to grab money from innocent android phone and tablet. They only need to bundle the virus to other good programs and spread them on the internet all over the world. As soon as the users get this virus, they will get fake police warning.

Therefore, the users’ phone/tablet has been locked for safe reason and the users need to pay for certain amount of money, like £ 100, £ 300, £500 and so on, to unlock their phone/tablet. Otherwise, the users will face a jail sentence. They use the tone of Ireland’s National Police Service and also add its logo on the warning page. They just use the same trick that they released cyber police viruses before. As usual, this virus is also dedicated to a specific region (Ireland) which makes it convincing for the Irish users.
