Google “congratulations” pop-up scam/spam from FRF web site?

This happened three times in a row. First after accessing FRF web site from a link in the emailed FRF newsletter that came out today. Using iPhone Safari. I cleared Safari website data and rebooted. Same outcome. I cleared Safari website data and rebooted. Same outcome.

Anyone else seeing this?

Note this was directly on the FRF website not the app.

It's a security hole in the websites code. It allows nefarious sites to set popups that you can't (or it's hard to) close. It's mostly prevalent on mobile versions of sites.

I don’t have anything like this on my laptop or my smartphone. I guess my Adblocker is stopping it.

Please make it stop. My iPad is okay, but it makes my iPhone unusable.
