How to Remove NCA Scam Virus on Mobile Device?

Hi. My phone is coming up with a NCA message asking for money when I put my phone on and now it’s not saying NCA its saying installing system’s updates. Is this a virus? It is saying I have to pay £100 by a Paysafecard. What should I do about it saying £100 fine? Will I get the police coming to my door? It said I will receive a letter in 10 working days. It is not letting me turn on the phone. Should I pay the fine because they are going to send a letter out in 2 days? Will I get prosecuted? It is saying the act of 198 and 162. I’m really scared I don’t know what to do. Please help me out. Thank you so much.
