Shady ad? Sounds more like malware if they attempted to charge your account without your interacting with the ad, or if you hit the "x" to clear the ad,that may have triggered your agreement to being bilked! If and when I have seen those kinds of ads, I back out immediately. But I have not even seen one since using Firefox on Android because Firefox mobile has all the ad block extensions(add-ons) that are available for desktop. I really can not understand why more people don't use it. I also have Self Destructing Cookies enabled. Firefox has so many great things like a reading mode,and a section to save those articles (in addition to the pocket integration) and downloads of pdf files works better than chrome. Firefox is by far a superior browser for Android.
