Last night, I used my Samsung tablet to search a recipe for my kid. All of sudden, a US Department of Justice page popped up which claims that I downloaded child pornography. It also claims that I have violated the law which I will be taken to the court and put into prison. I was scared when I saw the message. I didn’t do anything wrong on my tablet. On the warning page, it asks a $500 fine saying that I can escape from further punishment if I pay. I don’t know what to do now as my tablet is completely locked by this page. Every time I turn on my tab, this page can appear right away. Should I pay the fine? I don’t want to get into trouble with police. Please help!
