Hey guys,

Next time you see the pop up can you provide a full URL, screen shot, device and browser and geo-location to have it blocked from the site.

Thank you,

~ Glenda

Sure thing - How do I get a geo location?

I've been browsing using my laptop and so far I've had no problems. Seems to be just when I'm using the ipad - which is strange because I never get pop ups on apple products.

Hey Kevinthefish - geo location as in where you live :D (city/state)

Don't forget to include the other details as Glenda requested above:

1. Url of the pop up ad
2. screenshot
3. device/browser
4. your location

Thanks,
Natalie

Got the URL. This one is a gift card scam on Safari (iPhone 5s?). I didn't get a screenshot as it only gives you two minutes to "claim your prize" but here is he link; Chance to get $1000 Walmart reward card.

Normally when I get this I am in Fargo, ND, but this time I was on my phone driving to Nebraska. We are somewhere within an hour of the border of SD/ND.

ETA: As we drove into Sisseton, it popped up twice again. I got screenshots and will post them Monday night. It seems to only happen when I'm on this site and not connected to WiFi.

your IP address would just be fine. if you don't want to post it publicly, you can send us a PM.

Internet and computer geolocation can be performed by associating a geographic location with the Internet Protocol (IP) address, MAC address, RFID, hardware embedded article/production number, embedded software number (such as UUID, Exif/IPTC/XMP or modern steganography), invoice, Wi-Fi positioning system, device fingerprint, canvas fingerprinting or device GPS coordinates, or other, perhaps self-disclosed information. Geolocation usually works by automatically looking up an IP address on a WHOIS service and retrieving the registrant's physical address.[ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geolocation]

Thanks, I've sent that to our ad team to get blocked. Sorry for the inconvenience.
