possible spam-like pop-up on the site -

There may be something going on with the website.   It seems that often when I use it, I get this pop-up about winning a contest and they have a few questions for me about my Chrome browser.  This is a known hack.  I was getting it for a while but it took me a while to realize I only got it when I went to the Catalina site.  Before I realized it I reinstalled chrome, updated my anti-virus software and  scanned the devise.  It seemed to go away. After a week or so I again went back to the Catalina site an BAM,  there it was again.  So at this point I am more than suspicious that the site may be infected.
This has only happened on an android device, it has not happened on Windows.

I have Android and use Chrome.
I have not had that problem yet.
It is good to know how to fix it.
Thanks.

Don,
 I am using Chrome on my Windows desk top machine and Google on my I-Phone. I have a paid subscription to AVG anti-virus in operation as well and I have NOT seen any evidence of it as yet.
Happy Thankgiving,
Bill

I have seen a ton of spam pop-ups and redirects on this site. I literally just had one on my Galaxy S9 running Google Chrome. On my laptop, Chrome frequently refuses to load the site at all, warning that it has been compromised. I strongly recommend a security audit.
