This nasty phishing scam is not limited to just Audi World. If you go to a site that uses the same ad provider as this site that pop up will follow you. Even if you remove cookies and browser history since they track users by other means. I am just surprised that these ad companies are not doing much to prevent malicious ads. Chrome allows developers to access the phones vibration motor and these ads really use it to full extent. I don't see why web developers will ever need access to the motor. On my Android phone I have moved to Firefox with Ad block plus. Google will not add ad blockers to chrome since they are one of the companies that place ads on sites.

I recently started getting the "Congratulations" pop-ups on my iPhone using Safari. Only site that I get them on (so far) is Audiworld. Pop-up blocker is on, cleared history/cache, disabled javascript (which seems to stop it but then the site doesnt display properly) but still get the pop-ups. Googled the problem and it's apparently caused by a script that has weaseled into the website somehow. Can the admins look into this, please?
