Do you happen to know what ad was displayed on the page when that happened? Has it happened again since?

Problem is still there. Was on hot deals forum, page 1.

My phone announced "warning your device is running low on memory" through the speaker (using voice) - and opened Google play store to some scammy memory cleaner app.

Ads on screen, top: "celeste" (some religious thing?), bottom Walgreens flu shot ad

While browsing the RFD forums 30 minutes ago, I was sent to GooglePlay to download an app.

The "app" claims to fix "running low on memory". My sound is turned off so can't say if an audio warning was given.

Quite a few times. Randomly comes up even just browsing any page.
