    That sounds like you've installed some app that's feeding this unwelcome ad. If there is some notification associated with it you could long-press that to find out which app it is. If you can find the app that's producing these ads, uninstalling it will fix the problem.

    Otherwise, try installing Addons Detector from the Play Store, run a scan then see whether any of your apps have "push notifications" addons.

    If you can't find anything, just think about what apps you've installed shortly before this started (say in 2 weeks before then). Try disabling them (or uninstalling if you prefer). If the ads stop and you had to disable multiple apps, re-enable them gradually until you find out which is responsible (say 1/day - how much gap depending on how common these ads are).
