How to Unlock Android Phones/Tablets Hacked by Fake FBI Prism Virus?

Now, there is a FBI warning on my Samsung Android phone. Can’t do anything with it, even restart or power off the phone. It is frightening. I have some issues to confirm. It says I have to pay a penalty of $500 dollars because of violating Law by watching illegal porn. Is it true? Should I pay the penalty? I didn’t do anything illegal. And I lock up my phone, is there any way to unlock it without paying $500 dollars?

More Information about the Fake FBI Prism Virus.

When your device is locked up by the FBI prism warning, saying something like your device is locked because of watching or distributing illegal porn, and you have to pay a penalty of $500 dollars to unlock it, it signifies that the device has been hacked by a violent scam virus. The ransomware, which is called Fake FBI Prism Virus in the industry, is a piece of malware developed by cyber criminals to extort money from its victims. The virus is proved to be able to attack almost all devices running Android OS systems including phones/tablets of Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, Kindle Fire, ZTE, Huawei etc.. The Fake FBI Prism Virus is not new. As a matter of fact, the virus has developed greatly and there are many different variants prevailing across the world in different countries. The variants are slightly different in appearance and exactly the same in essence. All the variants disguise itself to be a powerful law enforcement agency to scare victims and drive them to pay an unreal penalty of a certain amount as fast as they can by accusing them of visiting illegal content like child porn on the internet. But the law enforcement agencies the virus pretends to be vary in different cases. For variants in America, the agency is usually the Federal Bureau of Investigation; while it can be the UK Justice or Metropolitan Police in United Kingdoms. The amount of the penalty is also different, it can range from 100 to 500 dollars or pounds or euros. Anyway, no matter what it claims to be, how serious the case looks, if you have done nothing wrong or illegal, there is no need for you to feel much too panic and end up paying the ransoms as it demands because all the story is just a nonsense. It is a trick that the hackers plays to squeeze money out of you. Actually, you can turn to an expert in this field to help you remove the virus and unlock the device at much lower cost.
