I clicked on this link:



https://www.chaseso.com/wd-mb-sat...---nas-red


directly from one of the promoted ads directly underneath your search bar.


Obviously a scam site.


Thought you should know.

Thanks JayVee! We'll manually block this merchant based on the URL you provided. These scam sites are popping up everywhere and the ad platforms are having a difficult time catching them. Thanks for helping us block it.

I keep on seeing a number of scam ad sites in my searches. These sites were recently created and offer deals too good to be true. Is there any way to block these scams by filtering sites by date of creation? I'm sure there are a number of people that may be scammed thinking they must be "endorse" by Slickdeal or it wouldn't be on their site.

Wanted to follow-up and confirm that we did block both of these. Thanks for reporting! If you see any more fake sellers, please let us know.
