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

I just noticed that the link changes... here's the second one I've noticed.

Awesome. Thanks for the all the info, especially the link. Will make tracking and blocking the source much easier

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.

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
4. your location

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.

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.

|sabrinah||I used to get these all the time, even with popup blockers but now they only happen occasionally. Now my problem is that when I'm on this site on my phone I get error messages when trying to leave and go to a new website. I have to enter the new website multiple times before it will let me leave.|
