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.
Wasted hrs and hrs trying to unsubscribe and cancel auto payments there webpage is set up that you just go round in circles and get nowhere. Scam...Scam....Scam. You get nowhere.
its a scam !!
Do not waste your time or money and be prepared to waste hrs and hrs trying to unsubscribe and cancel auto payments there webpage is set up that you just go round in circles and get nowhere
Became a member then my credit card was hacked be careful
I didn't buy anything else on line and then my credit card was hacked. A few weeks later my account was blocked and password reset not sent even after multiple attempts
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.
I was catfished emotionally ( not financially)
I connected with a catfish on POF. He refused to meet me. He claimed to be a venture capitalist starting a business in Singapore but based in Sydney. He is still online as we speak with different pics and claiming to have a different type of job. POF seems to attract predators as it is easy to create a dodgy profile. This person just wants to chat, nothing else.
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,
Created an account paid $50 for a four month subscription. Two days later it was removed. With no valid reason. No answer from customer service. Stay away from paying money to these thieves.
Absolutely descraseful,had money taken from my account to renew my account with out asking for permission,no reply email
Taken money from account with out permission,checked bank details to verify it was POF, tried to contact which if is pretty much impossible, finally got email and will not return my emails,so I'm reporting to fair trade, not happy
Customer service is woeful
Contact pof support for the second time regards a second account hack, I begged for help. I am a full paid member.
My requests were ignored, I kept being ask over 6 times to provide my email address and user name (which I did) and today’s i received an email saying due to a violation my account has been deleted! My account was hacked I have no access to what was or has been sent on pof but Denise from customer support won’t even reply or repsond with why my account has been deleted!
For 6 days I contacted them daily and the service was horrib...le. The whole experience has left a horrible taste in my mouth. I am on top of this over 10 women a day from cam sites would message me saying “come join this site or I am women on the eve in g and go to this website to book me” The site no longer processes people they just approve everyone and obviously deleted paid customers details so they can rip you off.
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.
Another dating scam
So obvious, had so called members claiming they want to meet and chat. In fact there never viewed my profile. POF needs to stop there scam, only trying to get you to pay for there fake service.
A meeting site where people expect to meet without COMMUNICATING!!!
Supposed to be a "meeting site" with lots of complaints from woman about "where are all the genuine guys" and "not being able to meet anyone" yet, time and time again when I try this site, it's the exact same thing. I write a genuine, open, honest profile and woman respond, but 99.9% of the time, they will not engage, communicate, make an effort or try to actually get to know you!! With 99.9% only ever offering three word responses at best, when they finally get around in the rotation to respond at all. It just proves how stupid people are when...they can not even realise the simple logic of actually trying to get to know a couple of guys at a time PROPERLY rather than dealing with SO MANY at once, you are on a "production line" of replies that are only three word responses at best as they have to move on to the next "reply" Then wonder why they get deleted or can't meet anyone!! I shudder at the stupidity of humans
Vilest treacherous mismanaged site on the internet
A fake profile and an email address are the multiple opportunities for men to get away with covert treacherous activity abs knowing woman pose as men to encroach discredit and ruin people’s online presence without consultation just a system generated email saying you are violating site your no longer EVER allowed to join but screw what your side of the situation is the knowledge of what’s possible keeping predators happy by dismissing genuine information regarding all members safety and the blunt screw off text is really grounds for calling the...site PLENTY of PREDATORS and heads up to female admin staff being completely ignored is a violation of everyone’s safety so I wouldn’t go there if I was at all concerned about your safety privacy abs info it’s irrelevant money talks and date force stalks x
Spending money on "tokens" to be told your popularity is "increasing." FALSE. User can see how many people have viewed their profile. Sometimes the view increased by one visitor.
Displays same-gender users when that is not a preference.
The site is a RIP-OFF. Save your money.
Deleted my account
I have a disability and a retarded voice so I find dating hard. I joined this site in hopes I could at least talk to women. But no after a few minutes my account got deleted. I didn't break any rules and feel as though I did something wrong.
Worse Dating App Ever
I was paying member of POF.
My name was Jonjonjon82
I am good looking guy
I paid a lot of money to POF over the years. I also made my 2 brothers member there and was paying for them
I am good looking guy. I was chatting to a woman who thought I am a scam as one couldn';t be that good looking and everything perfect. I said I am a paying member, how could I be scam.
She complained about me and POF frozen my account without any investigation
They cancelled paying honest member's account who paid $1000s over the years for a fake NON-PAYING member
It is the STUPIEST BUSINESS EVER.
I cancelled mine and my 2 brothers payments.
Hacker's dream - do not go there
I had a membership with POF that lasted less than 9 days, got about 3 days' use and was forced to pay for 20 times that in access fees. Having paid for a 3 month subscription my account was almost immediately hacked. It took several days for me to get action on this and when I did it was to shut my account permanently, refuse any refund and refuse to transfer the current paid membership to a new account. So they got my money, I got nothing, and the support and customer service was really appalling. I've since found out that this is a common experience so be warned.
Little support if hacked
The site was doing well, so I figured I would subscribe. 20 minutes later a hacker took over. Locked me out, blocked all my contacts, altered my profile and changed my mobile number. Now after contacting pof ( which can take 48 hours per response) they have advised that
1. They cannot unlock the blocks
2. If I cannot remember my mobile number, which was changed by the hacker. I cannot change bsck
3. They detected the abnormal activity, but this changes nothing.
4. I am now trying to get a refund as I have only had 20 minutes use.
I hope you get a better experience than I have.
Surely there is a good reliable side with local support .
What a crap of dating site, like oasis was.
I thought it would be different, but no to much political correctness. zero experience on a rubbish website. I was looking for women, they were just as bad. Too many rules like no nude photos, family nonsense nice crap.
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?
