This issue is still happening.

This may actually be a violation of the "Google Play Terms of Service" (with respect to the Android mobile app), so it would be in RFD's benefit to resolve the issue ASAP, to prevent their app being removed from the Google Play Store.

It's been happening to me the past few days. Just scrolling hot deals forum on chrome browser, not the app, android.

Site the last one directed to: https:// visit .net-cb15 .stream/gaming/fjp6m/index-dollar-rn-2s. html

Added some spaces to the above so others don't click and deleted a load of other text added at the end.

Seems like a Google ad is serving it up after loading.

Edit: just happened again

Just got one with the address
http:// prize-survey .icu/aff?pub=15c642f7b4730e
Spaces inserted so it won't link
The address doesn't load though

Was using the main app on an Android 9 device, on the hot deals forum section

I've been getting this full screen ad today on rfd.
Disappointing to see the site go in this direction.

*Edit to say that this was on the mobile site in firefox/android.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was, and always will be yours. If it never returns, it was never yours to begin with :|

The entire team is looking into this issue now. I’m hoping to have an update on the situation by tomorrow. I apologize that it has continued to happen to this day.

I just got this too. Wasn't on the app, it was on the mobile site

Using Chrome. Didn't get a url
Same with iOS Safari. Really annoying. Not legit ads either. All sketchy spam.
