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!
People who have actually watched immoral pornographic videos and feel worried and embarrassed are easy to be fooled by this Interpol ransomware scam, because they think that by hurrying to pay the imaginary fine, they will be able to escape from any punishment and unlock his iPhone/iPad. On the notification, the payment is demanded to be made in the way of using Ukash or PaySafecard. After payment, a code will be provided and the victim needs to type in the code where the hacker demands to unlock his device and avoid being punished. If the designer of the Interpol ransomware virus keeps his word, the situation becomes better for the victims who are worried about the image or reputation being devastated by this Interpol ransomware virus. But it has been a fact that the payment will not help at all except bring about financial loss.

The accusation popping up with the Interpol ransomware virus seems like real. Your IP information and the city you live in are both correctly presented in the notification. It is, as matter of fact, an ill-known scam virus without anything to do with the Interpol authority. Many iPhone/iPad devices have been attacked by this Interpol ransomware. Other scam ransomware viruses like FBI virus, DOJ virus, PCeU virus and so on all can be classified to be the variant of the Interpol ransomware virus, which are different in the authority they pretend to be, and the same thing in essence. In general, the Interpol ransomware and its variants are malicious programs designed to make illegal incomes by the hackers by pretending to be an agency of the target countries to threaten victims to pay a non-existent fine for non-existent cybercrimes like spreading copyrighted material without permission and watching child porn videos. Once infected, your device will be blocked from using the web browser such as Safari or Chrome to access the internet by the Interpol ransomware. You will be asked to pay a fine of a certain amount within a certain period of time such 24/48 hours to unlock the phone and avoid being put in jail or other punishment. While, when confronted with the Interpol ransomware infection, you are suggested to stay calm instead of rushing to make any payment, because payment will not help solve the problem at all. The most important thing you should do is to talk to an expert in this field and let them help remove the virus completely without causing any other critical errors.
