Hello. Are the Federal Bureau of Investigation sites that pop up when viewing pornography sites real? I got warning from the FBI after clicking on an advertised porn site( I know it is a bad habit and I’ve been trying to break it). The warning wants me to pay $500 in three business days. It had a screenshot of my face, knew my location and said that if I didn’t pay, they would contact my family and friends. It even had their numbers on there! Is this real?? I am freaking out! I’ve never been in trouble before!! What do I do? Please help me out.
Did you receive any message saying that you are fined as you were viewing pornography sites? Do not trust it. It is not real. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will not send you online pop-up notice. How come the FBI asks you pay a fine for viewing porn sites? If you did violate laws, they would just break in your house and arrest you directly. You may wonder why your phone/tablet is blocked since you haven’t done anything wrong. It is because your phone/tablet has been hacked. This fake FBI warning is caused by a virus which is created by the cyber criminals. Its owner is not the FBI. You are not in trouble with the police. Please remember that the police will not punish you without a warrant. Do not worry about the non-existed fine or jail. None of those bad things will happen. Your only concern is the nasty FBI virus behind the fake police threat.
Why your phone/tablet is blocked suddenly? It is not because you violated laws. The real reason is your device is infected with a virus. In those years, the technique has been abused by the hackers.

When you click on the link to download porn or click on picture that has been turned into hyperlink on malicious sites, virus can be downloaded surreptitiously. In the next few seconds, your screen will be blocked and filled with fake police warning.
As soon as the FBI virus captures your mobile device, it blocks your device with a full screen of bogus message. The virus usually says that this message is sent from FBI. It informs that your device is blocked as your activities on the device have violated the law of United States, such as the use of copyrighted movies, software, pornography, promoting terrorism, etc. It just scares you into paying a fine which you don’t have obligation to do this. Lots of people lost money while their devices were still blocked. To make it more authentic, it accesses your photos, contacts and other private information and displays them on the locked screen. It lies that they contact your family and friends. You may be freaking out and think that the FBI is spying on you. Just calm down. It is the criminal who gets your information by reference to the information of your Internet provider. As this tricky virus spares no effort to access your personal information, we can’t make sure that it will not install more malware on the device so as to grab your credit card detail if you don’t remove it in time.
