    It's a scam. Go to Safari menu (At the very top right side of your screen next to Apple icon), choose "Quit Safari"

    press "Shift" button and while holding this button on your keyboard single click on the Safari icon on your Dock.


    Open Safari - Preferences - Privacy - Remove All Website Data.
