Hi. I need tech support. Last night, I found an interesting short video shared by my friend on Facebook. I clicked on the link to view more. Then, a police warning popped suddenly, saying that I violated the laws for watching illegal porn. I have to pay €300 and send email to email@example.com, but I swear that I didn’t view anything like that. Please help me out. How can I unblock mobile from “Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org for illegal pornography” warning without paying the fine?
“Send email to email@example.com for illegal pornography” warning is fake. It is issued by the cyber criminals instead of the real police. If you see a warning webpage that occupies the Safari or other web browser screen and demands payment for the supposed possession of illicit material, your device has been attacked by a malicious virus.
The scam virus performs various malicious activities to grab money and precious information from you with the help of remote hackers. After is accesses your device, it locks you out of your Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox and more web browser in the name of cyber police. Whenever you try to start a webpage, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of €300 in the form of an MoneyPak, Ukash, Paysafecard, MoneyGram Xpress voucher or other prepaid card. They demand prepaid card payment because transactions made through them cannot be reversed and are hard to track where the money is going to.
The cybercrime warning scam virus alters your system and browser settings so that it will always run once your device is powered on. It does not disappear after you tap on it like a normal browser notification. No option is provided to close the webpage. It only allows you to make the payment with prepaid card, preventing you from accessing Internet.
Sometimes, the nasty virus claims that all your files and data will be erased if you don’t send them email and pay the penalty within 24 or 72 hours. Your profile has been uploaded to cybercrime data center. If you try to unblock device without paying the fine, a lawsuit will be launched against you. The police will arrest you and you will have to spend years in jail.
On the illegal pornography warning, adult pictures are displayed, stating you have viewed and spread them. To make it authentic, it shows logo of cyber police or FBI. Specific laws that you “violated” are listed. Don’t be fooled by it. It is a scam virus. It has been developed by the hackers to scare victims into paying a ransom and collect valuable information by stealing legit law enforcements’ names. We don’t what the fake police virus can do after it has been installed on your device. We suggest you remove the virus as soon as possible.
