fbi porn scam

 

The FBI is watching you users of porn app.¬†Porn Droid. If you’re looking at smut on your Android phone, the FBI will lock it, display a message that you are on the official porn-watchers register, take your photo and fine you $500. Of course, this is not the actual FBI, rather Russian hackers who want to shake you onanists down for cash.

The IB Times:

According to security company ESET, which uncovered the campaign, the only way to recover access to your phone is through a factory reset, which means that all your photos, videos and contacts will be deleted and, unless they have been backed up, will be lost forever.

File under: spot the real wankers.
