Scrap Heap

published

As a paid member I was bombarded with fake profiles at the start all sending links to some sort of video porn site.
Genuine women without serious mental health issues are pretty much non existent.
If it’s tattooed ex biker moles you’re after , you may be lucky to make their short list of guys they’re already screwing.

An Absolute let down, only on plenty of fish will you find the scrap heap of women (1’s to 5’s) at most who think they’re all 11’s and one out of twenty actually replies to you and at that it’s like they’ve just crawled out of a dumpster after a hard night working the streets.

This site is a waste of time and money. The women on here don’t reply, and unable to block them. Their distances to contacts are laughable at best, and their idea of time is suited for higher dimensional physics!!

This site is a farce.
Waste of money and time.
Are people stupid enough to be part of this site.
Liars, cheats, and a whole lot of scummy people. Like the owners of the site who manage porn sites.
I'd say 80% of users are attached. Beware the lines l'm from xxx but l'm currently with the defense force working in Arabia. My wife died in a car crash... It's all garbage they are people working in a phone call center out to play with your heart strings.
Hang up and block them. They are con artists.

What a disgrace.

What a disgrace.Greater Melbourne (Outer), VIC

The site is a scam and poorly administered

published

I was new to the site.
I had a few matches and wanted to chat live.
I was requested to have an age check that requested a credit card check for free.
This charged me nearly $80 and then did not work.
Two days later I logged back in and my password was rejected. I reset the password.
I logged in to the site only to be connected to someone else’s account.
This is a disgrace. How can a supposedly reputable site have such poor security.

They just want your money!

published

Once you sign up for a time frame you can't stop them taking your money! I have found this site to be pretty much a waste of time and money. I thought that because I was paying monthly I could unsubscribe and have the direct debits stopped but no!

AVOID THIS TOTAL SCAM

My Account was hacked and POF were useless, PayPal refunded my sign up subscription but then paid over the monthly recurring subscription which POF diverted to another Clients Account. A refund is now pending. POF are a totally unprofessional and unethical outfit.

You will spend an hour filling up lengthy stupid questionnaires and then few hours later your profile is deleted for no obvious reason. They are just collecting information for marketing companies. Stay away from them!

Avoid this site.

published

Most of the profiles are fake.
The filter/settings don't work so 95% of the profiles that do exist are from people out of state. I emailed POF customer support telling them that this was useless as the people who were contacting me might as well live in a totally different country due to the distances involved. Customer support replied saying that they had changed things their end so it would not happen anymore - nothing had changed.
They also make it incredibly hard to cancel your subscription. I had to visit my bank to ensure they did not take any further payments.
Avoid this site please - they just want your money and don't provide a service!

POF What a Scam

published

This terrible site allows members to block you after 1 message being sent?The amount of scammers,stalkers,hookers and judgemental people on POF is ridiculous.They take 1 look and block for no reason.The same show pony Instagram woman from 1 year ago are rife on this site and are just there to show off and not date at all and string guys along.There customer service is terrible with auto generated responses.Unless your a paid member its a useless site.

90% of profiles are fake. Don't waste your precious time or money. The site does nothing to reduce the number of fake profiles and scammers. And the quality of the actual real people on here is not very high at all.

Worst site pof video chat that as you fill out the forms redirects you and charges you $58 .

published

The site is a scam with false profiles and people pushing you into apps you don't need example as above could not be connected and each time the site sent me to another site I responded to admin with the outcome being " you have done something wrong" after a couple of goes at this and adding my bank card details I got notification that I had joined another site. My card was declined on Pof site so they asked for another card. I told them there was no other card and since then I have not deem able to log into the site I relieve this site is a scam.

I long ago deleted the app from my phone but obviously never knew I had to go on their site to delete the account. However somebody took a screen shot that my account says I was active last week. How is that possible?

Serious Q - do descent, real, normal females use this site to find normal guys? As a guy should I bother joining to find a normal girl? Don't want to waste my time or money, especially after reading all the bad reviews. Cheers :)

No, sorry mate. With my experience, I'll never go on it again!! It's an absolute shocker. Most ladies are scammers trying to get you offline & pay for a porn site or get you to download Whatsapp & before you know it their asking you for money! And the ladies that may actually be real, never want to meet up if you find one & just want to talk forever! Like I said above, I'll never use it again, fake profiles, fake ladies - its an absolute joke actually. Guess that's what you get for free these days, get what you pay for!! All the best though :)

Hi, l have actually met a couple of girls on POF, one still a good friend. But the majority are too good to be true, then they say they want to VC when you are verified. SCAMBELL alert. Pretty fortunate l guess for myself, having such a small pond to fish out of, some real people l have recognised from my locality.. Careful fishing!
P.S..Should be called Plenty of Flounders!!

Yes I believe sometimes it does. Although it does pay to logout which is a bit of a pain, but I think that does help. If you keep having problems, I'd contact POF admin & ask further questions. It's done it to me before as well, I fully logout now, but then have to get verification txt msgs each time I log back in which is a pain the you know what. Best of luck :)
