It's dreadful!

Even worse, why, when I clicked on it by accident thinking it a mn message, did it open a new window which would not close and which demanded that I confirm whether I owned my phone type?

I was just coming on to start the same thread. It does look like a PM. I thought you'd updated the mobile site. Not loving it MNHQ

It's very similar to the top of a FB page.

Very sneaky advert.

Pretty cheap isn't it

Glad it's not just me!

I had that as well - and there's no option to close the window without confirming you're the owner of the phone. Nasty.

I had something similar just now-black envelope with flashing red star thing.

If I can work out how to get a screenshot I will try and catch it later.

I have an ancient nexus and use chrome if it helps.

Hi all,

Thanks for flagging this, we're working on getting this blocked asap. Unfortunately these ads creep up from time to time on the site, we have really tight restrictions on what advertising we accept but sometimes these deceptive ones slip through the net.

Thanks for looking into it Colette

Hi Colette, similar ad still flashing up on the mobile site this morning

Thanks for letting us know - and so sorry you're still seeing this flashing ad. We'll make sure our Tech team are aware.

Thank you Dawn, just seen the MN colour one again, pics attached for the Tech team's info. I know you're on the case so will stop bothering you!
