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.
Big scamming website, be very careful....
From a males point of view. I've joined 3 times now & will never join again! It's absolutely full of scamming ladies trying to get you to go offline & either get you to porn based websites OR you have ladies approaching you all nice & friendly then they ask you if you have Whatsapp & let's talk offline to get to know each other better?? Don't fall for it, you'll soon hear they really really like you & your so handsome, then it's either can I come to see you but I don't have the money for an airfare or I have no money for food & hit you up strai...ght away for money to put in their account. Absolutely unbelievable!! I'm truly serious about this, but know a scammer & when I'm being scammed/lied to. Guess that's what you get for a free based dating website & for this day & age, you can't trust anyone. A shame when I'm genuinely a nice guy looking for an honest lady.. ha, fat chance...
Full of fake profiles, scammers and lots of profiles with out of date photos.. which you find out when you meet them! Don’t waste your money or effort. I’ve only been on there 6 weeks & had a scammer ( I realised ) and person with out of date pictures !!
I have been hacked.
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!!
Letdown... big time!!.
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.
POF is SO scammy.... And the Wammens? Spare me. It should be called the Reject Shop.
The site is a PURE money making scam...
For instance, they say all the men considering signing up for the site, must not say to a woman, "I'd like to meet for hookups"., because they will throw you off it. But the website manager owns and hosts a heap of other garbage porn sites, that you can access as well.
They say you must write like this in your profile.
"If your profile contains obscene language of any kind your account will be deleted."
I did a username of "Oodlesofdoodle" and did the modern woman's shopping list for men but I flipped it for fun,
The site is a scam and poorly administered
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!
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.
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.
Questions & Answers
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!!
Does the site/app show you’re online when I’m fact you aren’t?
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 :)
