POF full of scammers
This site is full of scammers sending you links to click on beware all...I've never seen so many scammers in my whole life on one site it's disgusting the one star is for those try hards
Narcissist paradise, have only met abusive men with addiction problems on plenty of fish
To find a partner, ended up with abusive men with addiction problems 3 times , ended in heart break and ptsd. Would not recommend to anyone, also expensive, pay subscription then they want you to pay again
Disgraceful and downright dangerous
You’re asking me not to use aggressive language, but it’s hard not to. Basically the administrators of this site ignored my warnings of a predator who was messaging me abuse, allowed him to roam free, then deleted 3 of my photos for no apparent reason. Regular photos, well within the guidelines, that had been previously up for months with no issues. Obviously this creep launched a counter complaint on me because I reported him...and I get punished. Disgraceful.
On top of this, it is terribly glitchy, they ask you irrelevant questions like ho...w many siblings you have and your birth order...and to delete your account you have to go through their website, it’s impossible to do it via the app. Ladies, please listen up. Any creep can message you on here, and there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s a joke and actually just downright dangerous. Steer clear of this junk site!
If you are a guy POF doesn't want to know you!
I am a very genuine & real guy that had uploaded real (current pictures) that were not filtered or touched up in any way. I am very respectful & honest & did nothing wrong but was banned from POF after 4 days.
I've previously been on POF & have met 3 woman all of which looked much different to their pics, have lied & were awful but obviously POF don't care what you do if you're female.
It appears as though they have to cull the men as the ratio of men to women on their site is way out of kilter, because of that the women can lie, deceive, catf...
Whatever you do don't go there and don't let them video chat because they just take your money for that
Well I've been on it now for 2 days and I reckon I've received 20 scammers.. they are usually gorgeous women ... you know what they say " if they're too good to be true they usually are too good to be true "" mostly with rubber boobs and flashing them at you and then they want you to swap over to a video chat which all that does is just take your money and most of these are just scammers..... the genuine ones are usually old and fat people ... certainly one of the biggest waste of money on the market
Extremely unsafe dating app, DO NOT USE!!!
POF only puts temporary blocks on people if at all, because when you go back to the profile it is still viewable and when you go to block, the option is still available.
This is extremely dangerous as it allows predators and cyber stalkers to continue to have access to your dating profile, photos and information.
Not only that, they consistently remove your profile and they NEVER explain why or what you did wrong, DESPITE having paid a membership fee. This is bullying and harassment.
Their customer service is terrible. They don't care an...d give you automated responses. I don't like POF, I don't recommend them, won't recommend them EVER and there are other dating apps that are absolutely killing it in terms of support and service. POF needs to be shut down and I can guarantee you that it's only a matter of time that they will need to as they are endangering women's lives online.
Full of Scammers. Same old faces.
This site is full of Scammers with fake profiles. They are usually easy to spot. It's not unusual to be sent messages redirecting to websites.
Being a mostly free site it's difficult to establish something with anyone here. People are flooded with messages.
It seems that the same old faces are regulars on POF so it's difficult to think many are genuine.
Site needs a validation process and incentives to weed out those that just use it as a play thing.
This is a rip off with no protection for hackers.
Been on here for a years paid subscription. Renewed for another year. Got hacked and reported so pof deleted my account because of the suspicious activity from America. Created new account but lost my subscription which doesn’t expire til September can’t create new subscription as it says I already am subscribed. Pof said nothing they can do.
Cost $119 for subscription.
This is a joke,
2 years after meeting on POF...guess what?
Met my fiancée on POF October 2018. Now, we’re getting married. My advice, be open to people who are NOT what you’d think you’d like. I am the happiest I’ve ever been.
You match with people you’ve never seen . You match with beautiful woman but can’t chat with them unless you are a full member but once you join they disappear. Totally a fake site
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.
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 !!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Some real people but lots of fakes
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.
Not all men are bad
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.
Not a site I’d recommend to anyone.
Ok. So I’ve been out a couple of dates. Was threatened and now stalked as I said no, then pof allow the user to stay on the site after reporting
Questions & Answers
What does it mean when other persons profile pic disappears off private messages and their profile but u can still read their profile and messages. On profile it states they have private pics and to see them send them a message? Does it mean they have blocked you or maybe hidden their profile??
Can't really say. Possibly they're either really good looking, and so get bombarded with hits OR (more likely) they're really horrible-looking and are just hoping for a catch. Also look out for fakes - the worst are from the USA - either their location will be either a U.S. town or something like 'City' and then the name of a capital city in Australia. Just delete them
How do you unmatch a member on POF without blocking them? Google says this is the only way, but I’ve been unmatched and not blocked by someone.
Just ignore or delete they will get the message don't read any other messages from them in case they are abusive
Someone blocked me, can they still view me?
