Need help getting rid of iPhone’s Internet scam message blocking. I was searching for porn back then. (Don’t judge. Everyone needs it!) When I clicked on “Download”, this message from the US Marshalls popped up suddenly. It said I was accused of watching and storing child porn which I have never done. I have been wronged. It ordered me to pay $500 via PaySafeCard within 72 hours. If I don’t do this, I will be taken to court and put in prison for 6 to 8 years. I was about to pay because I was so scared. But I hesitated. Luckily, I searched it on the Internet and found it is a scam. However, I can’t access Internet on my Safari. Only the scam message is displayed there. How to get rid of it? Please help me out. Thank you.
