Default Tons of Scam Clothing Ads?

Am I the only one seeing tons of scam clothing ads on the left? Many are owned by one Chinese company, and there are dozens (hundreds?) of articles written about them and how to recognize them.

Here’s one: Online shopping scams: How to identify fake sites

Most are extremely cheap knock-offs (aka stolen designs like Ali Express does with stamp/die designs) from legit companies.

Is there a way for SCS to block these ads or ask the company that provides ad packages to stop them? (When I was a moderator on a large manufacturer’s forum, ads that were offensive, religious, political, or scams were taken off by the company that provided ads. But maybe a large manufacturer has more clout than a stamping community.)

I’ve tried personalizing ads and not personalizing them but 90% remain those for fake rip-off clothing.
