Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question. That is a SCAM message. Don't pay them. We can try to remove it manually. Go to Settings > Applications Manager (under More) Swipe left or right to All tab which is next to Installed, Running etc tabs. Find and select Internet. Tap Clear Data. That will clear it. Or turn off WiFi. Then access internet and the page will not load. Then close that page. Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

That doesent work, the message is still displayed when the internet page opens, and im not able to select anything on the page to close open windows etc.
Turn off WiFi. Then access internet and the page will not load. Then close that page. Does this work ?
Also open Play Store. Download Malwarebytes AntiMalware and scan your phone with it. Does it find anything ?
Do this. Turn off the phone. Then hold down both Power button and Volume Down at same time and when it turns release the Power but keep holding down the Volume Down and this will boot into Safe Mode. Then without opening Internet, go to Settings and turn on Flight mode. Then go to Settings > Application, Application Manager and select All tab. Find Internet. Tap it. Tap Force Stop. Tap Clear Data. Tap Clear Cache. Do the same for Chrome or other browsers. Then restart your phone and access internet.

Do i need to come out of airplane and safe modes first?
Before that, open Internet and open some page like It will fail to load. So close it. Turn off Flight mode and check Internet. If it works then restart normally and check.

Internet working thank you! :-) your a genius! Just one more question... what does safe mode do? shall i turn it back off?
You're most welcome ! Safe mode will prevent all additional and third party application from running in the background. Only core system files will run in background. For eg: If you installed any application from Play Store that resulted in the crashing of phone everytime you open it, then you can boot into Safe Mode and remove that application.

To get out of Safe Mode, just turn off your phone and turn it back on. This will boot into normal mode.
