Scam ad banner on your site

Postby Morlan » Wed Apr 04, 2012 5:13 am

I'm not sure if you're aware but there is a dodgy Flash banner at the bottom of your website that blasts out "Jingle Bells" for 10 seconds. I thought it was an April Fools' joke at first, but now I have to mute my audio every time I browse the site.

I don't think these Flash ads should be playing audio to the end user, and I'm certain that they are in breach of the AdChoices Terms and Conditions.

Here's a screengrab of the ad.


It links to and the redirects to, which is a scam website.

Perhaps you should report this to your advertisers.

Our ads are served by Google, so am a little surprised.
