Hey, Safari browser on Apple iPad has been blocked by police-block.site asking for £200 iTunes prepaid card. I am scared really. It said my safari browser has been locked for viewing illegal pornography, but I didn’t anything about porn. I just got one link popping up while I was watching TV show on Netflix, and I accidentally clicked on the link, then this police-block.site popped up and locked my Safari. If I don’t pay £200 iTunes prepaid card, will I be trouble with Met Police really? Until now, I have no clue to unblock it. Do I really need to pay that £200 iTunes Fine?
