Hi, unfortunately I was hit with this cyber police warning scam what can I do to remove it? They are giving me 48 hours to send $500 thru PayPal which seems strange because it would be untraceable and on top of that if it’s a legal site why isn’t there a contact number? It claimed that I had conducted illegal online activities which I didn’t do and they have my all phone contact information, so now they are threatening me with exposing me to friends and family unless I pay a $500.00 fine through PayPal. Is it real? Anyway, my phone now is locked by this cyber scam. So can you help me get rid of this issue?
