Hello, there. I’ve got the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Virus warning on my iPhone 6 plus for couple of days. Few days ago, I was searching for a movie on my Safari. A pop-up popped on my screen telling me that I could find interesting movies on that website for free. It was wonderful that I could watch movie for free. However, things went bad side after I clicked on that pop-up window. I got my Safari blocked by Royal Canadian Mounted Police Virus warning message. I was asked to pay for CAD 100$ to unblocked my Internet. I rebooted my iPhone immediately. But it was no use at all. How can I reuse my iPhone again? Is that warning message real? How to remove the virus from my Safari and get it worked again? Any help will be appreciated.
“I got a pop-up warning message from Royal Canadian Mounted Police Virus and I was asking to pay CAD 100$ via Ukash or Paysafecard. It says ATTENTION! Your apple id and your mobile device have been blocked for safety reasons. If you let 24 hours pass without payment, all photos movies games documents will be deleted and you will become the subject of criminal prosecution without the right to pay the fine and the possibility of unlocking your apple id express. What should I do?”
