Default Phishing “ad”?

I keep seeing the attached popup while browsing the Majors forum. I’m on an iPhone.

It tells me how lucky I am to have been selected for an Amazon gift card. It locks up the browser page until I click the one & only link (“Close”), whereupon it opens a [fake] Amazon page.

This is really bad. Please fix.

Yeah, I get the same thing. Makes coming here pretty much impossible on the phone.

Thanks @VCano

All, Happy New Year, thanks for reporting. This is new to us, it wasn't a campaign that we signed (we have agreed that we will have no more pop up ads on the Community) so we are investigating and taking this campaign down. As well as we will be reporting this campaign as potentially fraudulent. Keep us posted. Nick

In order to ensure that these ads don't pop up whatsoever we need the URL. If you can find it, could you please share it with us so we can block it?

We have blocked "x7w4.pw" but we are uncertain if this will block all amazon ads.

Thanks!

Val
