Scam Ad Found while browsing

Sat Mar 24, 2018 5:39 pm

Found one of those 1000 dollar ads that instantly direct you to a scam website, not sure if this may raise alarm or no?

There have been a lot of reports on this happening not just on our network. Not much we can do since it seems to be an Ad service issue. We have tried blocking the ads/links btu they are constantly changing to avoid detection.

A little more info I posted on the site also.

Has there been any progress on this? Are you all talking to the ad services?

It's not just on Apple/iOS but also Android 8/Chrome.

I used this site on a mobile phone without an adblocker and it was virtually impossible to browse for more than 30 seconds without the vibrating ads with popups that only allow you to press "go back."

Its infuriating and makes the site totally unusable.
Stay curious

I run media type websites and the only way to prevent these types of ads is to completely remove/switch advertising companies. There are many out there, so hopefully Airliners.net switches to another ad provider.
