Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

On iPhone using Safari, and these ads are redirecting me to various sites including cam girls. It only happens here, gamefaqs.com, and politico.com for me—no other sites—so whatever ad network you guys are using has a shady ad that needs to be reported.

Thanks Breakfast! I'll get this reported. Were you on mobile skin or full? And was it an automatic redirect, without clicking on anything?

I don't get directed to a cam girl site but I sure do get hit with scamming supposed virus hits coming from some ads that load while in here and only when on this site. It is becoming very hard to use the mobile site as I have to completely kill the browser each time it happens....

I hardly use the mobile skin (also iOS) due to frequent redirecting.

I would love to provide evidence... The issue is when it happens it takes over the browser blasting the vibrate mode with panic pop-ups... Can't get passed that without killing browser...

I will try to get something if possible...

Btw, I am using chrome browser on an Android phone...

Can someone post pics of said "cam girls"?

P.S. I'm a mod and want to get right to the bottom of this.

I have been getting that for a while here. The site it redirects to is luckyyou.mobi, which is about winning some prize. Also on chrome for mobile in android.

I got hit with one of those last week; I also had to kill the browser to clear it.

I get hit with the same when using the site on my Kindle Fire. Never have this issue on my laptop.

Why does this pop up on iPhone on this site?



Every time I pop into a thread this pops up like an annoying ad that can't get rid of. I can understand on PC, but never had such a malware on phone...

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Oldboy, I merged your post with this thread. Seems to be on the same topic. I get the crappy redirects too on both Android and iPhone.

I keep getting the same ad as OldBoy. It's making the mobile site unusable

Website Redirect Issues

Hello,

I've been experiencing issues lately when using the website on my iPhone where I'll constantly get redirected to a page telling me that I've won some sort of prize. It's been happening a lot lately over the past week or so and is really irritating as I pretty much have to constantly close the tab and open a new one but even then a lot of times it'll still happen. I have pop ups blocked on Safari on my phone but it's still a pretty consistent issue. This is the only website I regularly frequent where this happens. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing?

Edit: it just happened again after I posted this thread. Irritating as hell.

Our tech guys are on this. They've managed to replicate it (I couldn't) and are currently working on resolving it.
