    So I recently put Adsterra on my website and the CPM's were too good to be true. This evening I received a message from a fan of my site and they told me that the site redirected them to a phishing site. Turns out other Adsterra publishers had the same problem. I visited the site myself in an anonymous browser and suddenly there was a cookie that I had never seen before for MyGoodLife.com I immediately removed Adsterra and installed every malware plugin I could find, hope it's gone soon. If it isn't gone by Friday I'll copy all my posts, delete the site and rebuild it.

    Have any of you had any experiences like this with Adsterra? Also tried Exoclick and Adspyglass, could be their fault as well, one thing I know for sure, I'm done with these Adult advertising companies.

    Adult ad companies tend to be shady as all hell....never had a good experience...one of the main reasons i left the adult ad gig was these ad companies...

    Try visiting your site from a different browser that doesn't have any connections to your own browser. When I visited my site on my own laptop everything seemed fine but when I grabbed an old laptop that I had reset I got those redirecting things. Maybe it's a false alarm, maybe I did something stupid but highly likely Adsterra is to blame as I've found multiple threads about redirects lately on Webmaster forums.

    I know sometimes even propeller lead to some phishing site, but after users report they remove this kind of ads. This happens because of advertiser, their team cant control all ads. I have similar conversation with propeller manager so he told me that they have some big problems because advertisers publish stupid stuff.

    I used adsterra for some time, gave me good rates at start, then suddenly dropped, when i tried to check the reason and checked from another browser i saw they placed 2 times more pops than what we agreed of, total scam
    no wonder google is flagging sites that work with them

    When I start with them I asked to remove all erotic ads, they did..CPM was very good first week. After that started to drop heavily. When I asked them what is the problem their answer was you have same visitors on your site because of that they not convert...Bullshit..after 10 days I ended with them

    Adsterra might pay well but the stuff they advertise is just ridiculous.... fake "ebook" rental services (basically just paid libgen), fake movie streaming services, malware, weird porn, chrome extensions that add ad serving javascript in every page. Where else do people think they get the money to pay what they do?
