Why?

Why was I redirected to a reduce your debt website while deleting a post/topic? That is really weird and not normal at all. Really annoying that Even on the aeria site now you have to be careful where you click...


Edit: Why is there a link to reduce 60% of my debt now added to the words "reduce your debt"? Really aeria?

Sounds like your computer is infected with adware picked up somewhere else. I suggest updating your antimalware software and running a scan.

they must've seen that you are buying ap, then linked it to the money your household makes and that helped in reaching the conclusion that your are spending beyond your means and then decided to redirect you to a debt reducing website.

Welcome to the world of targeted advertisments!

Looks like it was an ad-on in mozilla. Disabled it and seems to be fine but to e sure running spybot and a scan

lol, sounds like either a spyware or adware program to me. Kapersky AV works great!
