Hey, there? Guys, I really need your help! I am almost freaked out. I have never seen a website as nasty as this one. It is something like data://(null) popup. I have done nothing. I was checking an email that is sent by somebody. I don’t know who it is. I was opening the attachment, all of sudden, i was directed to a porn website, and messages accusing me of watching porn popped up continually every time I tried to close them. It claims to be government authority and asks me to pay a fine for watching porn videos, if I don’t pay, people will come to my house to arrest me and put me in jail. What is more frightening is that they have got my IP and location! Is it real? Even though I know it is a scam, it stops me from using my safari on my ipad to surf the internet. And I can’t remove it myself. It is really a headache! Please help me! Many thanks!
