    Some of those scam pages can be dismissed very easily. Press command-W to close the tab or window. A huge box will pop up. Press the return key and both the box and the page will close. If that doesn't happen, continue.

      

    From the Safari menu bar, select
        

              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security

        
    and uncheck the box marked Enable JavaScript. Leave the preferences dialog open.
       
    Close the malicious window or tab.
       
    Re-enable JavaScript and close the preferences dialog.

      

    If the Preferences menu item is grayed out, quit Safari. Force quit if necessary. Relaunch it by holding down the shift key and clicking its icon in the Dock. From the menu bar, select
