    I was watching porn then got a warning saying I was doing illegal activity such as watching child porn etc which I never did and they were asking for £100 and saying if I don' pay them I will be on the criminal list etc! Is this a scam or is it true i swear I've done nothing wrong!

    Some of them do do a better job of it, i.e.:



    I got one like that once while streaming football, and it listed "piracy/streaming of illegal content" as one of the possible reasons, so it did scare me for a few seconds.

    Then you realise it's asking for money and you think... Hmm. Interpol caught me for a crime but they'll let me off if I paypal them £100. Seems legit!
