Hi, I have a problem with Government Malware Virus on android phone. My 13 year old son just tried to download something on the internet onto his Samsung Galaxy phone. He got a message that he was violating the law and that it was porn. This message is supposedly from the FBI, but I’m fairly sure it is not. Anyway, his phone is now locked on their notification screen, and the only thing he can click on is a link to a site where he can purchase a $500 Green Dot card to pay them the “fine” How do we get rid of this and get his phone unlocked?
