Google ads redirect my site to another site

There has been an ongoing ad issue since late Nov/early Dec. Many websites that run google ads are experiencing redirect ads, mine included:
 
https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=redirect+ads+lemode-mgz.com
 
My site has no malware. I spent hours testing the site, trying to find the source of the redirect ads.
 
When I had no ads on my site, I didn't see any redirect ads. When I ran ad networks other than Google, no redirect ads. When I ran Google ads alone, just after a few refreshes, I was redirected to lemode-mgz.com.
 
I saw other bad urls last month, but eventually they disappeared. I thought they were blocked until lemode-mgz.com came back yesterday.
 
It looks like the redirect ads were generated by a script from bad ads.
 
The attached image is just one of the many fake ads that site generates.
 
Has anyone experienced similar issues?

Did you try clear your browsers history / cache? You may have gotten some unwanted scumware targeting Adsense ads. 
It would also help if you shared a link to your site. Use the url shortner http://goo.gl if you don't want your site to be indexed through this forum.

I'm located in Denmark, so I will probably see some other ads than you, but I hope other participants on this forum will respond to this thread.

I cleared the browsers history/cache. Tested it again on safari. Still saw the redirect ads. I just kept refreshing the page, and then it happened.

It would be interesting to see if the issue is addressed to something local or if it appears to other visitors. I haven't heard of Adsense ads should cause a redirect (unless you click the ads)

I did a simply search on one of the redirect ad url. It showed a lot of sites that are also experiencing this. Quite recent too.

If it is an ad that is redirecting visitors to a different site it's most likely from the Ad Network & not an Adwords ads. 

You could try disabling all Ad Network ads to see if that resolves the issue. It's a tab under Allow & Block ads. If it does resolve it you could leave it turned off for all or turn some of them back on at a time to see if you can narrow it down to where they're coming from. However since there are currently 1639 of them that could take some time.
