Hey, can you help me remove NSA virus scam from my mobile device like phone/tablet? I have a Samsung galaxy s5 which I believe has malware. Everytime I load something on the internet I keep getting a blocked NSA saying ive been suspected of seeing child porn and need to pay $100 or $250. It’s like a police investigation saying my location and I was downloading illegal videos and music. Porn and eligal porn. And I can not open internet anymore cause every time I do the message pop up!!! How can I fix this? My smart phone has gotten the NSA message. In this morning, about 4 am, my pet cat was bitten by a roach in this “lovely” hotel, and I had to use my phone to look up some information about how to help my cat. When I got online, I got an answer page and then I clicked on an answer page and a page came up and said my phone was locked and I had to send in money to greenbox or pay a huge fine, otherwise I would be in trouble of law even put in jail. It is very ridiculous. I don’t trust it. I tried to get out of the tab, but this message cannot be closed. Now my phone is useless. I can’t do anything on it. How can I remove this NSA virus?
