    This happens every so often when I log into the forums here- this scam comes up where a statement and onscreen info states that it is coming from Microsoft; they say your information is being transmitted to malicious website, and everything is being stolen from you. It says you must call a number and report it to Microsoft. When you call (I haven't, I know others who have fallen for this scam), they try to get your information (they are scammers; it is not Microsoft). Since this comes up for me intermittently right when I go to login at the Sherdog forums, how is it that this isn't something to do with Sherdog?

    Edit: This is not just a problematic advertisement, this is a criminal scam.

    It does sound like a shitty ad. Do you have a screenshot of it? Is it only on the login page?

    I can take one next tiem it comes up. It pops up sometimes when I go to open up the Sherdog forum- either when I hot the login button or when I go to open the forums from the main page. It is a scam I have heard people get taken by other places. I'll screenshot it next time it happens.
