Warning my phone about to be seized


Jul 14, 2016, 1:47 AM
I was looking at posts in a closed group on Facebook, Dork Side Book Club.

Big beautiful photo supposedly of huge bookstore in Buenos Aires. Supposedly posted by web site twistedsifter.com.

Right after I clicked through the story (it also coincided with the 15% power left warning), I got a message over my phone screen saying I had picked up a virus or something from "adult" sites I visited. I don't remember visiting any.

It threatened to take over my phone. I had heard of this on TV. I panicked until my husband came in and said to power down the phone and remove the battery for a few minutes. Did that and the phone seems to be working.

What do you think? What should I do?

p.s. Is there a trick to get to speak to a human support person when you call 611 or the 1-888 numbers?
