Amazon Scam Site

Postby Derwood » Fri Oct 05, 2018 11:32 am

The last two days, I’ve been frequently rerouted to one of those Amazon Scam prize sites. This happens on mobile only (Safari on iOS)

Weird. If the site as a whole were compromised, it would be happening on all platforms. So I'd guess it's a function of the ads being served. However, the only ads I'm running are from Google Adsense. I'll report it to them.

I haven't seen this here, but I have seen the same thing on and off at Fangraphs recently, really annoying because they put so many redirects that sometimes it's really difficult to even use the back button. Seems most logical that it's a rogue ad or two.

I’m pretty sure it’s a Mobile Safari issue that keeps getting worse across many websites. Fangraphs was also the first place I started seeing it frequently.

It's usually a rogue ad that finds its way into Google Ads that a quick report takes care of

don’t sell it short, it’s also more fun to reload nsbb over and over until you get the scam site and then go there and give it your amazon password and social security number and bank account information than it is to think about the 2018 cubs
