Lucky

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

published

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!

published

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.

POF ignores user changes to age range search.

published

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.

published

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!

Some real people but lots of fakes

published

Just so many scammers and fakes and what I think are probably lonely kids who just fool around on this site. The good looking men and women are almost certainly fake profiles. Some are money scammers, some are just catfish, using the site for entertainment.

Absolute disgrace. Pay $ only to be hounded by scammers. i'm at a 12:1 ratio at the moment. I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.
P.O.F. should be re-titled as Plenty Of Frauds.. Or perhaps, Phishing Our Funds. Either way, I'm cancelling my subscription and using another apps. One that is soooooooo much better, and it begins with the letter Z.

Fake Profiles, feels unsafe

published

This is my 3rd day on POF.
I tried POF years ago, but don't remember it being this bad.

Most of the replies I have received have been from Escort girls & fake profiles.

Most of my time has been spent reporting these profiles to support & sending "Test" questions to those I'm interested in to see if they are real.

It's frustrating & disappointing to say the least and worst of all, it feels unsafe.

Every communication feels risky & im constantly concerned if I'm going to get hacked.

Rubbish

published

They say that you get what you pay for. PoF is littered with obviously fake accounts, sends notifications from non-existent accounts of people who "want to meet you", and does not enforce its stated rules for creating account profiles. There are plenty of real people on PoF, but sorting them from the fake rubbish is annoying. And the PoF matching algorithms are clearly not as discerning as other dating apps - I have found women on multiple apps that matched with me on PoF, but when I checked their profile on the other app I wondered what the hell PoF was matching on apart from gender, age, and location. Avoid if you can.

Hacked account,trolls and stupid support staff.

published

Avoid at all costs. Staff are either stupid or complicite in the scam. Account hacked and closed after 2 days. Dozens of trolls trying to get you to cam girl site. Staff say open new account and pay again. Yeah right as if. 8 months membership blown in 2 days. You will spend hours being trolled by dirty hooker skanks with fake pics.

Met an amazing guy on here and we are still together.

I also met my ex online and he's nothing but a con artist and personally think that all women should be aware of people like this.
They will lie and leave you in financial hardship to get what they want. Becareful who sweeps you off your feet, if it's too good to be true then he probably is and there's a lot of them on POF.

total waste of time & effort for the average guy

published

200 profiles interacted with, only managed 2 got email or phone contact details, 80% will ghost you after exchanging 2 messages, 1 in 20 are polite to say you not really what im looking for good luck fishing ect.
There is a general rule 4 to 1 men to women on dating sites and women in general follow 80/20 rule ie 80% of women only find 20% of men average or better, using basic maths average guy has 1% chance of getting a date.

Questions & Answers

Jacqui T.asked

I would love to know if there is anywhere you can report this site. I have been a loyal, paid customer but all of a sudden I could not log in, I had to create a new profile but funnily enough it let me in with the same user name and password, makes me think someone is using my old one.
Customer service do not respond, if you read in google play under the app reviews so many others are having the same issue, something is definitely not right with this site now, perhaps a trojan?

Yes I would think so if you are a paid member. If not a member and you send pictures not sure as it says sent, and then says also on the page has the other person seen it. To be 100 percent you could contact admin.

Yes, it's emails, once sent, it stays in who-ever's mailbox you sent it too, up to them to delete it

I've made contact with a woman from Brisbane, even though she has deleted our messages on Tinder, I've still got her on my phone
