Was fine for a few days and just happened again loading the for sale section, not even viewing a post. Redirect to some virus clean up scam.

Yes! Does not happen right away, but if I'm surfing the site for more than a few minutes, it ALWAYS happens. Only on my mobile device, not on my computer.

Pop up blocker on your phone will help, treat your phone like your computer, but your phone gets hounded more by pop ups and cookies, juts fyi

I get these all the time. I assume there is something wrong with the rctech site on mobile because I never get them on other sites I visit.

iPhone 5 with safari

Im pretty sure everyone has the pop up blocker activated on their phones.

It seems there is a problem all around.. so please take the the time to address it.

Also, these are not pop-up ads which go away after you press "X" to close. They are spam that change the history on your browser so that even going backwards to the prior page doesn't get you back to the site.

The chance to get $1000 pop up now appears in my frequently visited!

That should tell you how often I'm on this site and how often it has happened!

Disabling the Javascript plugin should stop the ads. But it will limit other sites from functioning properly. On iPhone, java is in the Settings, Safari, Advanced, toggle on/off. Also, if there is no "back" arrow, click on address bar at top and select go at bottom right of screen. Should refresh page back to RcTech.

I guess I spoke to soon earlier.... I'm seeing this just about daily now myself. Some times 2-3 times a day.

Very annoying.
