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.
Stick with it
Joined POF January 2019. Had quite a few dates , some cat fishing, some weirdos. Met some nice guys. Joined e harmony as told better quality of men ( biggest scam ever!) went back to POF and met my fella! Been together 6 months now and couldn't be happier! There are fish out there just need to be patient and throw a few back in the meantime.
Waste of time
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.
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!
No stars for fake advertising
Pof in Australia is always playing up..can't edit profile..10 times a date asks to rate it..and during a chat, which is demonstrating how desperate pof management is..99% of all women's profile are so old,they don't respond . And the others are fakes..
POF What a Scam
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.
PoF Admin Scamming Customers
What a piece of crap site. 10 mins joining, 15 fake scamming people messaging from all over the world except where I live. PoF Admins just scamming customers out of good hard earned money. Being reported to the appropriate Consumer affairs...
Worst site pof video chat that as you fill out the forms redirects you and charges you $58 .
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.
Get Out In The Real World
Used this 10 years ago for a couple of months, and no surprise a total waste of time as much as I found it now. Within the first hour you get swamped with scammers more than anything, so that set a lousy impression from the get go. Overall online dating is just another pyramid scheme whereby people want to get instant love and gratification without putting in any effort meeting in person. All dating sites generally work off the 80%-20% ratio...that is the 80% of women are fighting only for the top 20% of men. Not only that but the women general...ly expect the men to be paid subscribers in order for them to receive messages, otherwise they won't bother with you. As one reviewer pointed out, online dating is rather becoming the way of the dodo as much as online jobsearch. In this day and age of increasing over reliance on social media, I fail to understand how those savvy users couldn't strike up connections through their own circles rather than via totally unvetted, and unsolicited channels such as dating sites. As they say, the house always wins...and that is the entities that own these platforms.
I met my fiance and father to my son on POF. I didn't expect to find anything real on there as had a lot of men message me and just wanting nothing more then a hook up...just when I was about to give up on POF I got his message...very upfront and different to the rest..rest is history. Maybe I was just very lucky by reading all these bad reviews.
It’s not a hook up site boys
I’ve found the site quite legit with contact with a few real members. The fake ones are easy to spot and they’re rarer than some reviewers make out, if you’re dumb enough to follow a profile with obvious doctored photos or they indeed look way too good above the average woman you deserve to be fleeced. And don’t be hurt because you couldn’t get your end wet lol that’s not how the real world works. And don’t get mad if women are not replying you get that every where, if they’re fussy it’s not your problem it’s theirs. Unless you are a sleaze which most times is correct.
POF....WASTE OF TIME!
I tried this site out of desperation, as most probably would. Within half an hour the scammers started bombarding me. Always typed in broken english and then, the punch line......."do you have skype?" Absolutely disgraceful how this site allows these scams. Don't even bother.
Hi I used the site for two months and was chatting to a lady for one month on it and then all of a sudden she disappeared and then the site kept telling me my my profile needed upgrading. Not sure if she left or the site blocked our msgs to get money
POF ignores user changes to age range search.
Returned to the site after a long absence and sought a different date range. Search ignores the date range I enter and keeps resetting itself. I have tried it on a laptop with a basic and an advanced search and in desperation, installed the app on my phone but still the same problem. Any change to age I make it ignore. Pretty useless to have a dating site where I cannot set the date range I am seeking. What a waste of time and effort. Just pleased I found this before paying any money to them. Do not waste your time with a product that ignores a critical seach data.
Worst site in the world.
Please people to not join or pay for this site, Plenty of scammers and fake profiles. The people who run this site don't give a damn and there is absolutely no help from staff.
All they care about is getting your money. There are other better sites out there. You have been warned!
