Will there be any illegal problem happening to you? No! It is just a scam called United States Courts Virus. How to unlock android phone or tablet without paying the fine the virus requests?
An Overall Description about United States Courts Virus on Android Phone/Tablet:
United States Courts Virus is classified as a ransomware that is able to lock your android phone or tablet with a warning message saying that you have violated certain articles of law. Similar to Serious Organised Crime Agency Virus and Cyber Command Virus, it asks you to pay a sum of money as a penalty, which helps the cyber criminals to collect as much money as possible from phone or tablet users by the despicable threat. The fact is that the warning displayed by United States Courts Virus has nothing to do with any government institution! You need to remove it to unlock the android phone or tablet instead of paying the so-called fine.
According to United States Courts Virus‘s warning message, you did something that is against the law such as distributing prohibited contents online and spreading copyright materials. If you happen to be familiar with other scam infections, you will find that those reasons they list are exactly alike. Even if your android device is protected by an antivirus app, it still can infect the phone or tablet without letting you know. Once you log in corrupted or hacked web sites, click unknown links and download unknown free apps, it has the ability to sneak into your phone or tablet furtively, and then starts the installation without asking for your permission. So, be careful when you are surfing the Internet. Your antivirus app cannot prevent the virus from attacking the android device, let alone remove it. Once being infected, your android phone or tablet screen will suddenly be locked before you have the chance to access anything. You even do not know where the United States Courts comes from. It claims that if you want to unlock the device and avoid legal responsibility, you have to pay a fine through the given payment methods. That is a waste of money if you pay to the virus makers! The payment does not help you unlock the android phone or tablet. What you should do is to remove the United States Courts Virus manually as soon as possible because what the cyber criminals want is more and more money.
Since paying the fake fine does not help you to eliminate the virus, manual removal is the most effective solution. Processing manual removal should have certain technical skills.
