This site is a waste of money & time.
I joined this sight as a full member.ie you pay extra to gain an advantage over non paying members.I believed (or was made to believe) it was the best way to go.No it's not..The frills that are offered are short of what i expected.I feel i was taken advantage of.ie the lonely being taken advantage of.Really,i don't want to waste anymore of my time with this.I'll finish of by telling anyone who is considering this site is to read the PDF first.
Just a scam site. Employees are obviously on the payroll to pretend to be interested in you. I would say a payment to them per discussion. Best test of all ask to meet. It will never happen. Honestly very few actually real. But how do u know. I would say maybe 1 in 100. Many many fake profiles with photo internet downloads.
Do be very careful my profile was stolen on this site by a women in America if you don’t think it won’t happen to you it will I couldn’t believe I didn’t get help of the site had to delete my profile after spending money No hope of getting a refund this isn’t good enough
The site should be called Plenty of "Cat"Fish!
It has been years since I've used one of these sites. I actually said I'd never use one again and frankly, I should have stuck to my guns. It says free but inevitably you do have to pay to use their services or get the "best" exposure. I got a lot of interest at first but soon realised, being new, I was more than likely the latest "target" for the scammers. By that, I mean users sending fake links for you to face time them for conversations. POF does not offer this service. The fake link will seem real but then it will ask for credit card deta...ils and say it's just for verification of your membership and that there'll be no actual charge to your card. Do not give them your card details, you'll loose money. I emailed POF about this but didn't get a reply. It's a sad thing that people with good intentions go on this site only to be preyed upon by con artists. I feel for the people that are genuine on this site. I will be cancelling my membership but just wanted to warn other.

It's pretty poor to be honest...
I signed up for a premium membership to this dating site and I have to say, when you purchase a premium membership you don't get all that much. I changed my profile to suite more what I was after and then the search engine doesn't work! The website was telling me that there wee hundreds of people online in Australia but somehow there wasn't anyone online at all? I tried to contact admin and their responses were not helpful at all and didn't rectify the problem at all... I wouldn't suggest POF to anyone to be honest!
Hoax, 95% Fake Profiles; If I could give this 0 or negative stars I would. I feel sorry for the 5% real Singles.
Plenty of Fish (www.pof.com) or as I like to call it Plenty of Fakes, fraudulent dating website; I'd say I'd be very close to accurate in saying 95% of the profiles on this website are fake. I'm a male and like I said a very high percentage of the female profiles on this website are fake, male(Eg. 'Cinnamon' of Ipswich Queensland trolling male profiles) profiles masquerading with female pictures. I reported this issue to Plenty of Fish, but clearly they support this behavior as it draws in more unfortunate individuals who believe they're actu...ally vetting and rarely speaking with genuine singles, this resulted in the deletion my account for the second time. Advertisers too are being scammed thinking that genuine prospective customers are seeing their ads, they're not, they're associating their well known brands with, to say the least, fraudsters 95% scammers. Thankfully I didn't pay for the scam service like other poor souls. I have no doubt my pictures are now being used on fake profiles on this and other dating websites. The Plenty of Fish(www.pof.com) website facilitates a communication platform for criminal individuals and groups under false identities to coordinate illegal enterprises of all kinds including identity theft, fraud and the like, advertisers and singles be very wary.
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...
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!!
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!
It is Fake and Fraud
There are many fakes photos and IDs, specially women /girls photos
They are all scams compare to others applications
Asking for money/credit cards/ and upgrades to full accounts
Keep getting scam msg and emails
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 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...
90% of profiles are fake. Don't waste your precious time or money. The site does nothing to reduce the number of fake profiles and scammers. And the quality of the actual real people on here is not very high at all.
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.
