There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
You have nothing to worry about here.. We see this a couple dozen times a week on the site.. You clicked on a link and downloaded a virus or spyware and now it is telling you that you have to pay $XXXX as a fine or they will come arrest you..
You just need to get a good antivirus and spyware program and run it on your phone and that will remove the virus.
No, the FBI would not tell someone that they were going to come get them. Or that they could just pay a fine to get out of criminal charges.
And the fact that we see this dozens of times a week and once the customer gets an antivirus and runs it, it fixes everything..
Google "FBI phone porn notice" and you will see the scam..
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time. More of an inconvenience than any real trouble...
Glad I could help..
