As posted above, I also noticed a dramatic increase in the number of pop-up ads appearing on forum threads. This started maybe 3 days ago.
I placed my iPhone 10X IOS 12.2 on sleep mode and then cleared my Apps from memory, history and web site data. It seemed to solve the problem.
I emailed Audiogon Customer Support and they are reviewing. Thanks.....
I had another spam related popup ad appear today on my iPhone 10X when browsing Audiogon forums. I found these instructions for "Dealing with Safari popups that won't go away”:"
The best way to prepare is to install an ad blocker on your iOS device. There are several in the app store; all of them work. Which one to pick is an individual preference.
Apple has posted this tip regarding this problem: How to block pop-ups in Safari - Apple Support if it works, great, but the malefactors have found ways AROUND Apple's solution. The first thing to recognize is that these are really not popups; they are web pages designed to LOOK like popups. And to remove them you must remove the page references.

I was reading a post in the Audiogon digital forum and received a popup spam message again. I was okay for a while but these popup spams started again the last few days.
Someone mentioned these popups are web pages but I do not not know. Please note these popup spans only appear when I am browsing Audiogon. I get NO popups when browsing any other audio site or anything else.
My Safari popup blocker is on and so is my fraudulent web blocker. My iPhone IOS version is 12.2 and is the most current version.
If anyone else is receiving these popup spam messages, please email Audiogon Customer Support at [email protected]
