Hello, could you please help me with this issue right now? My iPhone just gets locked by this message “Your iPhone has been locked due to illegal activity.” It says I have been violated with some law articles and blames me for watching and viewing some porn contents on the internet. but I never do that. It gives an email address which seems from FBI department, but I am not sure if it is real. Should I just disregard the email sent from Interpol requesting the payment for a fine of $300? It said if I don’t pay within 24 hours, my bank accounts etc would be frozen. do you think Interpol would use this type of payment for fines? It is an embarrassing and I don’t want any other one know this matter even though I don’t do as it mentioned in the warning message. So please help me!

Hi, I got a message on my phone and said that my system is 28% infected. Because I attempt to go to Google on my iPhone. I pressed for more information and learned that she is opening Safari, navigating to Google, and then getting the following message (I attached the screenshot, at the bottom of the post):
Your system is heavily damaged by Four virus!
We detect that your Apple iPad is 28.1% DAMAGED because of four harmful viruses from recent adult sites. Soon it will damage your phone’s SIM card and will corrupt your contacts, photos, data, applications, etc.
If you do not remove the virus now , it will cause severe damage to your phone . Here’s what you NEED to do (step by step ):
Install Applock for free on Google Play!
Please tell me how do I get rid of it?
Is the “28% damaged” Virus Dangerous for my Phone? How did it comes up?
“28% damaged” virus is a common ramsomware and the cybercriminals fake up a story about infection of 4 viruses to frighten victims into buying their apps which should be the real threats to get rid of the non-existent “28% damaged” viruses. This is a typical trick in the field of security played by the cybercriminals to commit defraudation . The warning will kidnap your web browser and result in suspicious advertisements. The message is really difficult for ordinary users to get rid of. The annoying page can’t be removed by restarting or powering off the device. It will stick all the time without get its root or base cleared up. It is normal and common that a person will become very nervous when he comes across the virus warning. They worry that the four viruses would undermine the data on the contaminated device such as pictures, videos, credentials stored and other important files as the message demands. That is why many victims are fooled into following the guide it provides in attempt to resolve the problem. They spend so much money on the removal of the imaginary “28% damaged” virus. As a matter of fact, the real threat is the message itself. It is trying to cheat money out of the users. The warning message can’t be removed without deleting the nasty software behind it.

I was playing a game and my Samsung galaxy phone has been going straight to Google and saying there are two viruses on my phone and and I ignored it for a month or two and then today it said that my device has been locked due to violation of the law and I am freaking out because I’m 13 And my dad will be so mad at me and I really need help to get rid of it. I have been in my room on my tablet because my phone is locked by FBI virus and asked for a pin code or password trying to find videos to get rid of it and I can’t find anything. I got a samsung galaxy j3 prime. I have that FBI virus malware in my phone. I can put in safe mode but it still asks for a 4 digit pin. I have never set any PIN on my phone, and then I try to enter all possible passwords, but it won’t be recognized. So I can’t do anything to get rid of the virus and unlock my phone, please help me out of this annoying problem.
What is FBI Virus? How Dangerous Is It?
FBI Virus is classified to be a kind of ransomeware which created by cyber criminals. It warns the device is locked due to violation of federal laws of United States of America because your device was used to visit websites containing pornography, child pornography, zoophilia, child abuse or bulk-spamming. And then the victim is told to pay 500 USD in order to unlock the device – this is supposedly the fine demanded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation so that the person evades legal prosecution. It threatens that you will be taken to the court, bear some legal consequence or put into jail for 5-8years if you don’t pay the fine of $500 within 24/72 hours. Under no circumstance, should people trust this message. It is a trick made by cyber hackers who want to gain illegal benefits from innocent people. Once your device is infected with this fake FBI message, don’t be fooled by it and pay the fine, it won’t help you solve this problem at all. Read the rest of this post »

My brand new Samsung phone is now entirely locked by the Metropolitan Police for illegal activities. After watching porn on the internet, something was installed on my phone saying that illegal activities have been detected. I have searched around and it is pretty clear that it’s a virus. My phone stays on the popup screen and I can’t do anything on it. It says it wants me to pay 500$ or they will send something to all of my contacts, and they took a picture with my camera! I have tried to reboot my phone and all it does is give me a few seconds before it pops back up. Can they really do these things? I don’t know what to do! How do I get rid of this? All help needed please, get this damn thing off my phone
Samsung Phone is Locked by Metropolitan Police due to Illegal Activities?-Is it Real?
Do you receive a Metropolitan Police popup which says, “This device was locked to stop your illegal activity.”? Is the popup real? No, it is not sent by the Metropolitan Police. It is a harmful virus created by the hackers to attack your device for money. This fake police virus belongs to the Troj/Urausy Ransomware family which mainly targets devices in United Kingdom. At the same time, it also attacks users in other countries and regions. It steals the name of Metropolitan Police or British Police to lock users’ devices for money illegally. If your device was attacked by this virus, you would be locked out of your device and apps. In order to access your device again, you are requested to pay a fine of $ 500. Do not trust this scam virus. You are not in trouble with the police or any other legit agency. Though it is not an easy job to remove this nasty and stubborn virus, do not try to fix the problem by paying the fine. It turns out that it is useless to pay the fine like it demands. Many users were freaking out and paid the fine without a second thought. However, they got nothing and their devices were still locked after many days they sent the prepaid card code. Therefore, you should remove the Metropolitan Police virus off your device instead of paying the non-existed fine. Read the rest of this post »
