Hey, I have just received this message from the Cheshire police fining me £100! Well what happened is I was on some admittedly pretty sketchy websites on my Samsung tablet and all of a sudden I get one of those notifications saying I broke the law. It looked like a low battery notification but I was not able to exit out of it. Now every time when I turn on my tablet, this Cheshire police crime notification comes up, and I can’t do anything with my tablet. I just wonder that if watching some porn thing online will be illegal and if this police are real. If that is real, what can I do? I’m a little panicked! Is there a way to remove this message? Please help!
