Hey, my phone was locked completely! How can I do now? Please help. Yesterday I downloaded some apps into my android phone, but I felt I got something unclear that flashed and disappeared quickly during the process of installing, and I didn’t see it at all. As a result, after a while when finishing downloading, a warning security from Royal Canadian Mounted Police turned up and said my phone was locked due to violating the law in Canada and required me to pay a fine of CAD $100 via Ukash or PaySafeCard to unlock my phone. I guess it is a scam and look it up online. It’s really a scam virus but I don’t know how to handle it at all. How can I remove this virus?
