Currently, ICSPA Virus has blocked my android phone and tablet! I got a police warning from International Cyber Security Protection Alliance on my smart phone when i was watching videos. First, I don’t know if it is real or fake and I’m really scared as it is telling you watch child porn and have to pay the fine 300$ to unlock the mobile devices. I think police is on the way to my home. I don’t want to go to the jail. I can’t do anything on my phone now because when I turn on my phone, this warning appears. It explains that I can pay amount of fine to avoid the further punishment and unlock my phone. Also I turned on my tablet yesterday and said that i had to pay $100 AUD. I was shocked when i saw it and a little scared. The first thing i did was turn my tablet off but a while later i hopped back on to see if virus or what and it was gone. I also deleted search history, but it is still there. How do I remove the ICSPA virus scam from my Samsung tablet? I have it in Safe mode and found the application but it is grayed out so I can’t uninstall. If I pay, can I be safe from the police or government? My girlfriend’s phone was blocked and is not able to be used in any kind of way. I looked up the hacker on a laptop and it sure is a scam from a cyber police and if i was to pay $500 to them through pay pal i can use my phone again. Will u please help me fix this issue?
