Any respectable website would have dealt with this immediately. We are left with a) IB doesn't care or b) IB is making money off the ads and have no reason to stop them.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Got one last night that hijacked the browser then it tried to open the App Store on my phone to download some shitty app or game.

What in the actual fuck.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

This is a widespread problem for IB... At least two other forums they own are having the same takeover issue. And the same response, or lack of, from IB. So I guess we are all going to have to live with it because IB *DOES NOT* care.

Maybe it's time to start calling IB Corporate on Monday: 310-280-4000

I found some email addresses on their corporate site. Go ahead and email them, too. Looks like they're the people to contact for advertising inquiries, ironically enough.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Just redirected 3x in a row to some "playking" website that wants to open an external app. Great work here, IB. Really trying to drive away users, huh?

Edit: just happened again - some "tracking.applift" domain. Killing it, IB. Just killing it.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I've gotten hit on my mobile (iPhone) a lot. Probably half the times I'm in any given thread.

I'm on here A LOT. Never got a single redirect from my PC.

Windows 7
Google Chrome
Spybot, Malwarebytes, and Windows Security is always running to some extent.
Adblock is installed. But I turn it on and off from time to time.
