Thank you for the tips! I tried entering my IMEI no. at airpush but my records were not found. Downloaded the airpush detector and voila, Google Calendar was the culprit! Uninstalled it and saved my sanity :)

Thanks to the great people on this forum I was able to get rid of these annoying notifications by installing AirBlocker.

FYI, here are the apps that caused the issues for me:

Hairstyles for Women, found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wikilibs.fan_women_hairstyles_4&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS53aWtpbGlicy5mYW5fd29tZW5faGFpcnN0eWxlc180Il0.

I also use AirBlocker and it works really well. Highly recommended.

So I installed the airpush detector and did a scan on my phone. Problem is, they do not detect the notification ads I'm getting. But the ads are those annoying star ads. And in the notification alert message that first pops up with the ads, it says you can opt out. But if you click on the message and open it up, it does not give you the opt out function.

I also installed both AirPush and Lookout but it didn't find anything. What I am receiving is a Notification with just a white Star and several phrases in Chinese (I think). The first time I clicked by mistake and it asked me to install something, but I declined. It only appeared two times.

Norton Spot found that Tic-Tac-Toe was causing this when AirPush Detector and Lookout BOTH missed it. Also, discovered that somehow Lookout was disabled - this was on the kid's phone, so no telling how this happened but No more Tic-Tac-Toe for them! (specifically: "com.ttssaTTc.ttcsa").

Very helpful advice; downloaded both Lookout and Air-push Detector, found the exact apps causing me grief, uninstalled in no time, and now back to a normally-functioning phone. Thanks, Gentlemen.
