Site hosting bad adverts \ scam ad's

Postby cupracraig » Wed Apr 25, 2018 2:12 pm

I have noticed that the site is showing adverts featuring Martin Lewis the money saving expert guy who has recently made a huge point (by opening a law suit against facebook) that he does not advertise in any way or allow anyone to use his images as endorsement.

is this going to be looked at as its opening up forum users to dodgy ad's?

Some sites give you cookie based ads and they're aiming some dodgy shooter at me.

I use ad blocker on my work computer, but turned it off just to see what pops up.....

And whilst I have nothing against Asian Singles I have no interest in a long distance relationship!
