    Exclamation Warning: ad site redirect

    Just now I had an ad site, think it was something like: lemode-mzg. com hijack my bookmark for websleuths and immediately redirect me to their site. Beware!!!

    My husband manually typed in the address, but then it did it again when I clicked on a thread, so I used the back button...

    Very, very annoying.

    I wonder if someone could alert a Mod or Admin here at WS????

    Did that to me several times last night on the iPad. I had forgotten all about it until now. I shut my iPad off and it quit.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Okay, I messaged Tricia and Adnoid on Facebook about it, so hopefully we'll get some resolution. Looks like they hijacked Websleuths.

    Same thing just happened to me. I had no idea what was going on. I think it happened when I logged in; rather than Websleuths coming up, an ad website just like the one described above popped up. I exited as quickly as possible.

    The site will vary from Good Housekeeping to Dr. Oz, but the URL is the same. Only happening on Websleuths, not my Facebook.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am so sorry you are having this trouble.

    What we need from you is to be as specific as possible.

    Do you see any ads on Websleuths before you are taken to the other site.

    We can't reproduce this problem so we need to narrow down in more detail what is happening.

    If anyone can take a quick screen shot when it happens that will help.

    Thank you. We are on top of it and hopefully the problem will be fixed quickly.

    I tried to make myself a guinea pig and closed my link to WS and reopened using the type in first portion of the site addy let Chrome autofill. No ad redirect. Then did the same using the bookmark provided on my google tab. No redirect.

    I know it is helpful to Dave to know what browser you use, what sort of device, etc. So maybe he can narrow down under which specific circumstances it happens and why to some not others.
