Tiesearch. com that's the name of the sender.

i have been getting pop ups from this place for free gift cards for Amazon.com and Wal-Mart. Now I have never visited these websites nor have I purchased anything from either of them.

These  ads are tied to Safari and Delphi forums  because when I log in to Delphi I immediately start getting the pop ups, no other website I visit is infected with this.   In a effort to fix this I reset my iPad back to factory specs and wiped out 165 books I had saved on it.  I changed my e-mail and web browser.  I also set Safari to acccept no cookies I also cleaned this iPad of anything I could find not on it when I bought it,  now I have filled out the opt out feature on both websites and the tiesearch.com sites for a month every time I gets pop up  now and no luck.. oh I usually get five or six in a row.

anyhelp would be appreciated

I had some on my iPhone when I visited a WordPress blog then it started appearing on other sites. I removed all Cookies and Web Site data in Settings and they stopped.

I'm sorry you lost you books.

All I can narrow it down to is the Buzzards Roost forum and the Opinion Forum.  It does not show up,any where else.   Just talked to a guy onBuzzards forum he is having the exact same issue with his iPad it shows up no matter the message, I'll have wait till it shows up again to get the other bit you want.

Yea I cleaned every thing out  reset to just like I bought it no luck.

i'd love to get my hands on the guy that makes those ads they would stop-:). Yea that was a small fortune in books, I talked to Barns & Noble tonight believe  it or not they can recover all,my books but nothing else.

I think it is most likely adware. Once the cookie is on your browser and you land on a site that has an ad from them it pops up. I think it happened again and I was able to just remove the cookie with that name. (Mine was different from yours, but same behaviour) Truly annoying though!

Mine only shows up on two forums never anywhere else. But diligence I'll get it stopped.
