Hi, Ive just got home from work and switched on my pc laptop

Customer Question

Hi, Ive just got home from work and switched on my pc laptop to chat on the electricians forum. Then without notice my laptop is blocked by the United Kingdom Police(police central e-crime unit) saying Ive viewed inapropriate material and unless I pay £100.00p by Pay Ukash or Pay pay safe card within 72 hours then a criminal case will be initiated against me. This looks very convincing but unless my sons been up to no good Im hoping its a scam, my laptop is blocked please help.
