Greetings. I got problem with my MacBook Air. I was browsing on Safari when a screen popped up suddenly that states: “Your Mac has been blocked….error #268D3….Call us immediately at 855-900-9120. Please do not ignore this critical alert. If you close this page, your computer access will be disabled to prevent further damage to our network.

Can you help me remove error code #268D3 from my new MacBook Air?
Brief Information about Error Code #268D3 on MacBook Air

The error code #268D3 is a phony message which is made up by cyber criminals to mislead users. It states that your computer is infected with viruses and prompts you to call a phone number for help.

Once you call the number, they will try to persuade you to purchase their product to remove the virus that they created. If you did buy their product, they might only withdraw its fake alert. Sometimes, it can be worse. The alert is still there and your browser is still blocked though you did exactly as it required. In this way, people lost money for nothing. Therefore, do not trust error code #268D3 and call the given number. It is a fake alert brought by malicious software on your computer.

I have received this “your device has been locked due to illegal pornography” notice on my device. I then received an email from Interpol requesting payment of $300 or my bank accounts etc would be frozen. I have replied to this email requesting more details as they requested voucher codes to the value of $400 from Woolworths or several other outlets. This rang alarm bells in my mind as I didn’t think Interpol would use this type of payment for fines. My iPad has since been unlocked, and I haven’t provided any further information to them. Is this all I have to do? I am very distressed by this occurrence. I also received a case number CP-78190000-12687 and the sender name is Martin Beckingham. Any idea?
Is “your device has been locked due to illegal pornography” notice real or fake?
Hackers never stop spreading malware on mobile devices so they are still trying various ways in order to extort money from those innocent users. Now a fake warning was used by them to keep cheating unwary users. When mobile users firstly got attacked, a notice that said “your device has been locked due to illegal pornography” will pop up right away on the screen, with no way to close it. The window was usually labeled as FBI, AFP or metropolitan police and said user was in violation of illegally downloading media, viewing porn, or taking part in other illegal activities. It may list fines and penalties for each and then it directed users to pay $200 to $500 via a prepaid card such as MoneyPak, Moneygram or Paysafecard. Moreover, instructions were given on how to load the card and make the payment on the screen. The page says if the demands were not met, the phone can be blocked forever and criminal charges would be filed. Users cannot do anything on the device, even power off option is not working.

Hi. How to unlock Mobile from Fedcourt.firstname.lastname@example.org notice on Safari? I have an iPhone 7 and I recently just went to open my browser but received a pop up saying the safari cannot open the browser because the address is invalid. I then noticed an open tab from stating to be Australian Federal Police and that they have locked my browser and to open my browser I have to pay a penalty. I have been asked to send email to Fedcourt.email@example.com for unlocking. I’m not sure what this is, is it a scam? It also says I have been viewing illegal content, which I certainly have not. Please help me out. Thank you.

Its saying we have to pay $100 to unlock our safari again! One of my friends said that it is a virus. We don’t know what to do! How do I get rid of a virus locking me out of Safari? Please help!
How Do I Get Rid of a Virus Locking Me out of Safari?
Have been locked out of Safari for no reason? Have been accused of violating related laws? That means your device has been attacked by a malicious virus. Many people would believe that the warning was genuine and they were in big trouble. It threatens users to pay a fine within 24 or 72 hours. Otherwise, they would be taken to court and spend years in jail if the fine was not paid in time. Though it claims to be the FBI or cyber police, the information it shows you is fake. It has nothing to do with the FBI or cyber police. Its owners are the cyber criminals. Do not trust the fake message. It is a scam virus that locks your Safari for money. You are not obligated to pay the non-existed fine. Your urgent task is to remove the nasty virus which blocks your Safari. Though it only blocks your Safari at this moment, no one knows what else the hackers require the virus to do on your device. Do not understate any program that you are not familiar with, especially the dangerous ones. We suggest you get rid of the virus locking you out of Safari as soon as possible.

Safari is locked by police-mobile-block.com. How to fix? When i was going to enter my iphone’s safari to search up an image of a tree, it took me to this site that tells me that I have been blocked from my safari due to viewing and distributing illegal materials prohibite by the criminal law of the unite states of america, called pornography with elements of child pornography, rape, and zoophilla, which I have never been involved in. And it won’t let me off the page until i pay $100.00 with an iTunes prepaid card. By the way, it is police-mobile-block.com. Is it the police? I am wronged. Please help me out. I would like to end this ridiculous case and take my Safari back right now.
What is police-mobile-block.com Scam Virus?
Police-mobile-block.com is classified as the dangerous program on mobile devices. It takes users’ browser hostage and demands a fine to unlock. Therefore, we also call it ransomware. In order to grab money from innocent users successfully, it steals the name of cyber police, Cybercrime Government, FBI, Metropolitan Police, UK Justice, Federal Justice, Justice Zealand or other law enforcement agencies and accuses you of law violation. It has the logos of various authorities and items of specific laws to make everything look authentic. Many users were terrified and believed that the message was really from the police. They chose to pay the fine, trying to avoid trouble and unlock the browser. However, we must tell you that the police-mobile-block.com message is a scam virus. It is useless to pay the fine as they only want money from you. Even though you paid the fine, the hackers would not unlock your browser. Many victims told us that their browsers still were blocked and the virus did not disappear after they sent code to pay the fine. Hence, do not trust the fake police message and do as it requires. You need to calm down and figure out a way to remove Police-mobile-block.com scam virus as soon as possible to avoid further loss. Read the rest of this post »

Help! My iPhone Internet had popped up with a page with Metropolitan Police Warning saying I have to pay 200 within 12 hours. I cannot close the window without force quitting Safari. I looked it up and on the internet said this is a scam. Can anyone help me get rid of it? Thanks.
iPad/iPhone Got Locked By Metropolitan Police Warning—How to Unblock?
Ransomware is nothing new to the public now. Metropolitan Police Warning is made by the cyber criminals, which is also known as a kind of ransomware virus. This malicious ransomware attempts to lock your iPad/iPhone, and posing as an unofficial notice from a law enforcement agency, claims that your device has been determined to have visited illegal websites. In order to unblock your iPad/iPhone, you must do the payment for a fine with limited hours. If you don’t make the payment within the required hours, your online criminal activities will be reported to the Police of UK and you will be sent into jail for couples of years. Here comes the question: do the Metropolitan Police really demand you to pay for the fine?
“Is it true or is it scam? I got a warning page blocking my Safari which said it is from Metropolitan Police. It asked me to pay a fine of £200. It warns me if I don’t pay the fine and said my iPhone will be erased and my Facebook/Twitter accounts will be blocked if I don’t make the payment up to 12 hour. What should I do? Please help!”
