OMG! I was watching porn, clicked on a random link and got a message from the police?

I am very worried!! I was watching normal and legal standard porn, then clicked on a link from an ad, and got this message from the police. It seems to be that I clicked on an illegal porn ad??? Of course, I didn't do that intentionally, I don't even remember the ad exactly! I'm extremely scared!! It's everything in German and I cannot understand it well. Is it really from the police??? (see attached image). What should I do?

Relax, take another squirt of the lube and carry on.

It's just a scam.

On second thought, maybe let some of the blood flow back to the brain first...

Normal and legal standard porn. I love it.

You've really been watching Game of Thrones haven't you?

Sure if you did really something and really got caught by the police they would let you go by an anonymous payment by a random Internet payment card? Not even traffic tickets can be paid this way. And minor traffic infringements are one of the very few baddy bads you can actually pay anonymously.

Art. 161 Swiss Criminal Code does not exists https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...ndex.html#a161 The surrounding articles have nothing to do with porn.

Illegal Porn is Art. 197 https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...ndex.html#a197 that will go through a propper judge and court. Oh, and a proper visit by the real police around 5am in the morning. And the sentence would not be a fine but a monetary penalty or up to five years of prison.

If you can not get rid of this window, you have to fear the worst: Your computer is infected with a virus. Wipe it and reinstall everything from scratch.

But careful!!! This advice comes from a lawyer who believes that Windex is available in Switzerland.

Try the steps here:-

https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-police-trojan/

Then, if running windows and you wish to continue your masturbatory habits, install Linux in a VM (VirtualBox is a reasonable free solution), or as a dual boot system, and continue knuckle shuffling from there, and only there.

I'm watching you for any keyboard and/or mouse sales threads you may post, by the way.

That's laudable, but clearly, the OP didn't have that minute at that precise point in time ;-)


Back in the day, we used to make our own signs like that and send them to unsuspecting porn-connoisseurs in the lab via xv -display (back in the day, when they all allowed any terminal to send anything to any other terminal...sheesh).
Ah, how the world changes - and keeps being the same all the way along...

Yes. This ad is perfectly legit. The police will be knocking on your door today and seize your computer plus charge you a hefty fine.

Duuuude Ever heard of spam?

If you're lucky it's spam.

If you're unlucky (and given you appear to have not returned since the OP I guess this might be the case) you've picked up a nice piece of ransomware that has now encrypted your hard disc and is demanding a suitable payment to free it. My betting is on the latter.

There are plenty of free sites which have enough media to keep you entertained - as frequently as you could desire - with a full range of specialist subjects covered. All with clips longer than the 30 seconds required.

Failing that - Reddit has more than enough Subs to keep you amused.
