Have you noticed a fake full-screen warning on your browser and cannot close it or access other web pages? It is very probable that you have encountered police-service.net domain. You might see such a bogus message if you use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox; however, you should not believe any word of it as it is basically published and showed in order to extort money from innocent computer users.
If police-service.net shows itself on your browser, you will definitely see a notification which will try to convince you that it has been sent from your local governmental institution, for instance, FBI, Australian Federal Police Virus, and Department of Justice. It also claims that you are accused of viewing and storing pornography, bulk-spamming as well as downloading pirated music and videos. Even though these accusations seem rather serious, especially when the fine is stated, you should know that such law enforcement agencies do not send similar messages to computer users. In addition, if you try to exit the fake message, such or similar pop-up alerts will be displayed for you (see below). You should definitely not pay much attention to them.
As police-service.net domain is used to scare computer users and receive money from them, it is made in such a way that it would look very convincing. First of all, you might see the pictures of influential people, the logotypes of governmental institutions as well as the different laws stated. In addition, some people might be lured into paying this fake fine because MoneyPak, Ukash, and paysafecard money transfer services are used and many people know that they can be trusted. However, cyber-criminals choose these services because it is not easy to trace the payments made through them. We strongly recommend that you do not pay any money because you will lose them all and there is no guarantee that you could use your browser without any limitations.
If you do not want to see such messages anymore and be able to use your browser normally, you should remove police-service.net domain. It is not difficult to do that manually, thus you should use the instructions that we have provided for you below. After the removal, make sure that you scan your computer with an antimalware tool in order to find out whether other threats are not residing in your computer. We recommend using SpyHunter as it will definitely erase various kinds of infections as well as keep your computer protected in the future.
