I clicked on a normal link and it loaded this scam scare malware site.
Then it also opens in a full screen browser web tab
So hit escape key and close the tab.

Yep. That's definitely a scam website. Maybe the link should be removed?

Here, I took a screen shot of it...

Cause it is a scam worth having the experience of knowing what a scam site looks like.
It popped up while just doing normal clicking on various websites, so some one's website has this link probably unknowingly, it is nothing I looked to find. I always have many tabs open, so I dont really know whose site, but was I think a conservative news info site. I searched for.

Seems I was doing a bing search for Breitbart, and clicked one of the search items in Bing which I though was Breitbart web page, but up popped that..
