    What kind of phone are you using? I've had that happen on my iPhone. I go into Settings/Safari/Clear History and Website Data and that clears up the problem. I clear it regularly now to prevent that problem.

    You can tell it's a scam - look at the URL. It's not from Amazon. I've had the same thing happen on my phone.

    I agree with betsygee's advice if this is an i-phone. I have not had the issue happen on here but it is an issue with some other unrelated sites I visit. I use the tip mentioned and it does help. You have to do this every time you start getting spam. Make sure you save the sites you frequent to your favorites so you don't lose them when you dump your history.

    I was getting those for a while, just about every 30 seconds, and then it stopped. I don't know what I did or didn't do. Weird. But wow they're a pain.

    I'm getting them again as well. :( Thank you for the report. @Anne is aware of it and has our team working to block them. :) Please do keep taking screenshots and posting them. :)

    Me too. It started right after I cleared my history, and makes it impossible to use the site on my phone.

    So sorry this is happening again. When you report these issues, can you please also let us know which browsers you're using?

    I'm getting this one as well. I'm using Safari on an iPhone. Boy, these things are a pain in the neck.

    I tried doing this but it didn't work - the ad is still making its obnoxious self known. At the moment, I am unable to access TCS on my phone at all due to the intrusion. :angryfire:

    I'm also using Safari on an iPhone. The "Amazon" ad went away for a little while, but it's back.

    I have been seeing this ad often over the last 2 or 3 days
    System: Chrome on android oreo on Samsung phone
    Clearing history, app cache and system cache were not enough muscle to block this pop-up.
    In chrome-- Settings::site settings::notifications and block the site shown as https://apinventiv.com under notifications.
    This site had also been on the site list when I cleared the browsing history several times.

    My chrome (android phone) has actually finally started blocking the redirects to those sites (thankfully), but I've gotten the blocked message these past couple days so I know they're trying.

    Are you guys still seeing them? We switched off a couple of networks which may have caused the problem. That was done on Friday, just after 10PM ET - hopefully no pop-ups since then?

    I just got the same one again. All browsing details the same.
