  1. Ads use your activity, cache, or cookies. Now, if you previously have pressed regardless if it is intentionally or accidentally. It could be the reason why you are now flooded. Just report the ads and hide them whenever possible.

    From the looks of it, this seems to be one of those scams where they take a picture of a child that may or may not be terminal ill to appeal to the viewer’s maternal or paternal instincts.

    As someone else said, ads like this are a scam in 99 % of all cases.
