Hello, I am really freaked out and scared. I was on my Samsung galaxy tab gt-p5110 and I clicked on the wrong link. I was watching kdrama shows. Then boom this tiny screen about Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police pops up. It had my city on there and had my device on there as.: Android/ OS and my IP address, and I freaked out and my device was locked by this scaring message screen and I cannot get it off. It said something like you device has child pornography or illegally downloaded stuff on it and that it goes against this and that law. It asked me to pay some money. It said that I could serve 5 to 8 years. Then at the bottom it asked for me to “Don’t reload” or “Reload”. What can I do now? I don’t want to get into jail and I don’t even do anything wrong. I have tried many times to put this message down by restarting my tab, but nothing worked. I have to shut down my device. Could you please help me save my tab? I want my tab back.
