Scammers and hackers
Joined pof 2 weeks ago. Hit up by scammers bigtime. Last night my profile got hacked. After several emails and the threat of legal action i now have my money back. Pain on the butt as i had to go thru and change every password i have as they hacked my email as well. Dodgy site, avoid like the plague.
Money stolen from my account!
Pof just ripped my account for 51 dollars. This after I specifically turned off the auto renew settings in my profile. This site has become a joke! Tons of fake profiles and a total waste of time. And now $51 dollars out of my account because of stealing scumbags like this..
No filter to protect from aggression and unwanted contact. Automatically sets up PayPal payments for the next 1.5ys.
No protections, no real matching system, no easy way to cancel.
It's a dreadful site, I definitely do do not recommend this one! Especially if you don't know how to insist on all payments being cancelled.
I found my soul mate.
I went and joined POF in January 2018, I started talking to a few guys. But only meet up with one after taking for 2 weeks. Meet in a public place etc etc. and we are now coming up to our 2 year anniversary in feb and we also have a baby. Yes I understand that there maybe some men/women who are fake and not in it for the same reasons. But there is a diamond in the rough once in a while. Just be honest and communicate what you want
Unmitigated Rubbish - Worst Dating Site Ever
Just a complete and utter waste of time.
Doesn't matter how many questions you answer, it simply randomly matches you with peole your age, in your area. Brilliant! Must have spent years developing that algorithm.
You would get better matches by approaching random strangers on the train.
A beasts wonderland
Too much cat & mouse behaviours,elusiveness,too much non committals,casuals make this non refundable site a brothel scene..some overly macho types using motorbikes to-" sell themselves & appear-" larger than life..Too many tasteless Sleazo' s..Money wasted on a tasteless TRAP
Scam Scam Scam
After I paid for membership and set up my profile, I immediately got scammers contacting me calling me Hon and babe, All fairly good looking women who said they liked my profile and pictures, yet none had actually looked at my profile (you can see who views you with paid membership). One of the main scams was trying to sweet talk me into a video chatting… Which I never fell for. This site may have been good in the past but it is now shockingly full of scammers
Stay away from Plentry of fish... The whole site is a SCAM..STAY AWAY!!!!!
Stay away from Plentry of fish...it has so many fake profiles you're wasting your time. Don't pay to join..they will tell you all these profiles want to meet you but you have to pay to see them and when you do pay the subscription the women that they said wanted to meet you disappear. The whole site is a SCAM..STAY AWAY!!!!!
Scam site they use your profile to scam people
I opened an account / profile on this site. I upgraded my account for a fee, only to find that my account has been used to message people in an attempt to scam them,
I've been sent abusive responses from people and never once did I actually send those emails
I read the sent messages and see that there are dozens and dozens of sent messages all scamming
so in essence you pay for them to scam people
Stay away from this site!!!
Some nice girls. But!!
I've tried this site for a while now and have chatted to and on occasion met some lovely girls.
There are so so many fake female profiles.
The About me descriptions - almost verbatim on some.
Meet me - from girls which can only be generated by the POF system.
Meet me - from USA, Russia, Asia - seriously!!
The absolute tossers (yes that's some of us fellas) who ask for bed activity, bed activity preferences nudes pics or send manhood pics ruin it for the genuine ones. No wonder most girls (the majority) won't even reply to even a polite message.
POF seem to sit by and not police all this, happy to take users money and turn a blind eye.
Less than 24 hours and I can't get into my account. Had heaps of replies but then a weird one from US where person did not answer but just said "tell me more about yourself' I just said I thought he had probably stolen the ID and was he really from US and then that was the end of my account and you can't even sign up again. There were 2 local prospects and now I'll never know who they are...grrrrr… and there is no way to complain! Such a shame it is an automated site that nasty people can just get you booted off any time.
Hate this app with a passion
This is my review about plenty of fish its the worst app and site ever made your profile gets constantly deleted for absolute no reason and once your profile is deleted you can never sign back up again this is what plenty of fish state POF has 0 tolerance for users who are rude, upload fake pictures, married, use inappropriate language in their first email, upload nude photos or break our terms of service in any way. Any user caught doing so is deleted. You may also be deleted if you accumulate a high number of blocks. Users who are deleted may...not signup to the service again. Which is a joke just because people block you or say your married and you just want to find some friends you cant because your profile gets deleted what a joke so lets say i didn't like someone so ill get a bunch of my friends and block them and then there profile will get deleted what a load of crap and without even doing a google search for there customer service address they dont even have it displayed on there site and even if you send them a email you wont even get a reply back and also girls can send any picture they like but when it comes to guys they expect us to upgrade just to send pictures so just because i dont have a between my legs i need to upgrade pfft i would not spend a cent on this stupid app and yet some hell its 1 of the most popular apps and now they even start advertising on television pfft. What a joke if i could give this app a 0 or even a -1 i would but unfortunately they dont have that option for me so i would give them a 1 this app is run by incompetent and i wish it was never made and i cant wait until the day these stupid site go bankrupt and out of business. Do not waste your money to upgrade I repeat dont waste your money to upgrade this stupid site cause if you do you will regret it and they dont even refund your money there a joke and a waste just google plenty of fish and see how many bad reviews these idiots have. No wonder why these losers don't have a reviews page because they know they would all get bad reviews and hate messages cause there a bunch of dumb idiots who ruin these apps for people who actually want to find someone.
Waste of time
I joined few days ago after having couple of years break only not to be able to log on back this morning. I've tried logging on and found out that I was booted off due to blocking too many members. What a joke! Most of these are fake people, rude, crude and waste of time. So I get kicked off for blocking men who are being rude and disrespectful but are these scammers getting kicked off? I have just tried to make another account with different e-mail address and it will not let me sign up. Waste of freaking time!!! It used to be a good site 10 or so years ago but it's gone down the s***!!! Don't bother!
To all the ladies out there!
In the last two months, i have been lucky enough to go on four dates. Nothing past a first date but a good start. If you are lucky enough to strike a conversation, ask questions and suggest to meet in person within a week. If they hesitate, run for the hills. Put your sixth sense in to work. I am fortunate enough to have a special gift of putting two and two together. The few lies i uncovered with the men i met was their marital status and current professions. Two of the men stated on their profiles that they were single but actually separat...ed. Agrrrrh! You are technically married mate! I gave them the flick. Too much baggage. The other two claimed to have masters degrees working as accountants. Oh boy!. The profile of the one of the two academically accomplished candidates was laden with grammar and punctuation errors.
You just got to know how it "works"
The first time i joined pof 2 years ago. I had no idea how it all worked. I was lame and timid in my messaging. Got no replys. Just got contacted by fakes ect. They easy to spot though. Block them immediately. Had a break for 12 months then got back on with a different "attitude". Firstly my new username was VERY suggestive. But kinda funny. And the chicks that did like it were the sort i was after...an easy hook up. I have had upwards of 10 hook ups. None ugly fat chicks either. You just have to be very polite, a little funny, know your target...and more than anything be creative in your messages. I very rarely say "hi" in a message. Just hit em with something direct like..."i noticed your fantastic red shoes. You wear them very well". On profiles where chicks write nothing try something like..."Gee Sarah you really gave me heaps to work with there lol...you like to make it hard dont you?" Bam!! The site does work....but we have to make it work lol. Its not easy. And i never paid a cent.
