I was googling on my iPad yesterday. A screen popped up which I could not delete. It told me to contact support at 844 205-7799 to unlock my iPad due to detected illegal activity. I called number provided and a foreign accented male answered. He told me I had to go immediately to a store which sold iTunes gift cards and purchase one in the amount of $50. I hung up. My iPad safari is still locked down despite restarting it multiple times. Everything else functions as normal on my iPad.
