Thread starter #1
Whenever I go to the home page of Speedsolving.com on my safari browser, I’m immediately being redirected to scam surveys and scam gift card claims. This has been happening since exactly 7 AM this morning. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but it might be worth to check it out and see what’s going on.

The site that I’m being redirected to is loompaspalace.com or something like that.

I’m having this happen to me as well and it was difficult even to view this thread because of the scam site redirecting me. This is an issue with speedsolving.com, not my device (other people having same issue at same time with same site), so hopefully the mods know how to protect this site from scammers soon... (although I don’t even know how to go about doing it so if they do fix it this very day that’d be above my expectations)

Using Safari as well on iphone x and never had anything like that. Doesn't seem to be a problem with the site itself. Maybe your location/isp plays a role in things like this? I'm not an IT expert.

It appeared to be an issue with a script on the site - I think I've found the issue - please report here again if it happens again. Thanks.

@pjk, it happened again! My iphone 6s can't access the website now(I am on a laptop now)! It is always redirected to a google.kookea.ltd or something similar and has scam stuff. please help!

This will happen 30s or so after I enter the site.
Thanks for letting me know, let me know if it happens again.

What are the recommendations you have to improve? I browse the forum on my phone often without issue. But would appreciate any feedback you (or anyone else has) to make it better.
I think it would help if you could filter out the issue.

You should ask 1) what phone do you use 2) what version of android/iOS you use and 3) what browser you use.

It might just help identify the problem.

I'm quite sure the issue is related to Google allowing a faulty ad into their mobile Adsense version. It has been reported elsewhere. I've disabled that script now.

Please report if you have any other issues, thanks.
