Hello uCoz Community!

I wanted to ask if you can disable these types of ads that only show for mobile users.

I got this ad with a timer, it also contains a fake cancel button. Clicking anywhere will redirect you to another website, also, sometimes when clicking the X button (at least on my phone) it still does it, but not in Chrome DevTools, so I'm not sure about that.

This is how it looks:


The page it redirects you to is one of those "Congratulations! You won: Smart TV, iPad, iPhone etc.", complete with fake comments (you can't add comments), and every link on the website redirects you to a form in which you need to give all your personal information to apparently receive your Smart TV etc.

Congratulations page screenshot:


The form:


Information about the website that it redirects you and the form:


This is not from a third-party script etc., as I only use Google Fonts.

Thanks,
Nitroretro

Edit:
I noticed there is another advertisement type that appears only on mobile phones that simply redirects you, without even clicking something, to sites like "Your (phone name) is in danger!" etc., which are more rare. Also pressing the back button on those ads don't even bring you back to your website sad
