Forced Redirects on Adsense are getting ridiculously annoying

How can we stop forced redirects on Google Adsense?

I run Adsense on a few sites and my visitors are complaining about "Amazon popups" via mobile device. I took a look and I'm also getting a lot of these ads - which are called forced redirects. This really hasn't been an issue for me or my viewers until recently. A few of the URLs users are being redirected to are:

samsung-2018-win.club
samsung-prize-giveaway.today
samsung-win-2018.club
walmartwin2018.club

They always bring you to a new page, in the same tab/window - and you can't use the browser back button to go back.

And they always start off with a loud "Congratulations"... Does anyone have any input on how to defeat this?

Are you sure that this is not the Adsense's vignette ads ?

Are you sure its AdSense and not something else? If its AdSense, shot an email to the Google and will look into it. That's something Google really cares about.

I solved my problem by blocking ads from:

christopherandbanks.com
sunasya.com

Once those ads no longer displayed, my problems went away...

Just noting that I've been blocking more of these ads. They're affecting my Adsense earnings by causing viewers to stop viewing my sites. This means these ads are affecting our revenue. Browse your sites with a mobile device. If you own a forum, browse individual threads

To note, even when I go through the BLOCK ADS area in Google Adsense, my browser is hijacked when these ads are displayed. I'm not quite sure why Google isn't paying attention...
