Good Evening to everyone on the forums tonight. I have a very unique problem,and or issue regarding my android tablet. Someone has hacked into my tablet and not only put a virus on it,but somehow they were able to lock it so that i cannot use it,which i have never encountered anything like this before. There was what i would call a crazy message on the screen that stated that i supposedly violated some sort of internet law,and it stated that it came from law enforcement,but shortly thereafter on the next screen it stated that the fine was $300.00 and that if i wanted to be able to use my tablet again,to pay this fine to the Treasure Account,and that it could be paid by moneypack/debit card,and that this card could be obtained from walgreens,and then it stated on the same screen that it would be unlocked as soon as the fine was paid,so i immediately contacted the sheriffs dept and they said that it was a scam,and that someone hacked into my tablet and put malware on it,and to take it to a computer shop,and to have the hard drive wiped clean,and to have new software put on it. My question and or issue regarding this is can i somehow do this myself,and what do i need to do to take care of this issue?and secondly where exactly is the hard drive located inside or on the tablet so i can try to either take it out,and ot try to do this manually,and or that i might be able to hook it up to another computer,and be able to download the necessary software to be able to wipe it clean? PLease if anyone can help me regarding this matter,i would appreciate it. I actually thought that since i had reported this incident to local law enforcement,that they would be able to take the tablet as evidence,and to try to see who hacked into it,and i thought that they would be able to help me regarding this matter,but i guess thats asking to much,as they told me to take it somewhere to have it taken care of. boy big help they were.
