This isn't malware related.  Its an advertisement than leans towards being a scam.  This is is type of malicious advertisement ( aka; malvertisement ) and is not caused by software on your PC.  It is an artifact of browsing the Internet Today.  While you are browsing the internet, you may hit a malvertiser URL ( a URL that almost certainly will redirect one to a malvertisement ) and thus experience this type of scam.

Clear the cache of the browser and look at your browsing habits and what sites you visit that lead to such malvertisements.

As a type of advertisement it is not something you have that you can get rid of.  Its like driving down a particular road that has lots of billboards that you find are annoying so you drive a different route.
