Hello, this Interpol thing is really frightening and even right now I am still scared! Help! Early in the morning today, I was using my iPad to surf the internet with the safari, and all of a sudden, a pornographic website showed up, after which I was informed of a notification, stating that I would face a term of 5-8 years in jail or a £100 fine for illegal pornography. The charge with illegal online pornography is seemingly put forward by the government agency of the Interpol Department of Cybercrime. I am threatened to pay the fine using the Ukash. And my safari is now completely locked, I have no idea how to unlock it. It is really upsetting and annoying. Is the charge real? Do I have to pay the fine to unlock my safari and avoid being put in prison? Or it is just a scam? But how can I remove it from my device without paying the fine? Please help me!

Hey, there? I am from New Zealand. There is a suspicious notification on my iPhone now. It is something like your phone is locked for the illegal pornography. There is an email address of “email@example.com”. It seems like an address of the justice agency of New Zealand. Is it real? My iPhone is completely blocked and I can’t even to power it off. I am really scared. Is that possible that the authority will come to my house? But I have done nothing illegal. I can’t remove this thing myself. Please help!
“Justicezealand Scam Virus” Description:
The malware with the similar message like “Your iPhone/iPad locked by the illegal pornography firstname.lastname@example.org” is a piece of ransomware that can be called fake government virus like the fake FBI virus prevailing in the USA. Some common traits are shared by all variants of such a virus. First, to force the victims to pay the non-existent fine as fast as they can, the virus usually disguises itself to be the powerful law enforcement agency of the target country. In this case, we can tell from the fake email address “email@example.com”, the virus pretends as the justice agency of the New Zealand to threaten to victims to pay a fine for illegal pornography. For the victims who are sensitive and prudent enough, this trick is being able to avoid easily. While for some victims, the case becomes a nightmare. They are frightened so much at sight of this scam that can’t help moving to pay the imaginary fine as the hacker’s demand without having the situation turned any better. Some of them payed as much as 500 bucks to the hacker’s account in an irreversible method. Apart from this trick, another method the hacker uses to threaten the victims to pay is the second common aspect of such an infection we are going to analyze. It really makes sense in combination with the trick we have just discussed to drive the victims to step into the whole scam trap. And that is supposed to be probably the most annoying and upsetting trait that drive mad the victims. Yes, the virus will partly or completely block you from using the device again. In some cases, even the attempt to restart or power off the device is prevented, let alone using it as normal to operate such functions as making calls, sending messages and running an antivirus program to detect and kill the virus. And this aspect of the virus plays a critical role in making the victims believe that the hacker’s claim of deleting all the data stored on the device is real.The logic of such a judgement can be that since the infected device has been blocked completely by the hacker, it is natural that the data is being at his disposal. While, as a matter of fact, by now, there is no evidence that show a fake government virus like the one discussed in this article will delete the data of the device infected with it. Finally, to escape from being reversed and traced, usually, the hacker will prefer to demand the victims to pay the non-existent fine in an irreversible and untraceable way like via GreenDot MoneyPak, Ukash or Paysafecard code in the case of the victims in the USA. This adds the sadness and sorrow of the victims who have been fooled into getting trapped.
