Yesterday night, I used my Android phone to watch a video on the web, suddenly, a JavaScript popped up and claimed that I have broken the law for watching illegal material. I was freaking out about that as I saw that I will be accused for the crime. I didn’t do anything wrong on my phone, I just wanted to watch a movie. How could that happen? I restarted my phone but as soon as I can saw the desktop, this warning page comes up. Also if I need to get out from this page, I need to pay a fine so that I can escape from punishment from the police. Is that true?
