Righteo....while I believe there are some real people on the site for sure, see them in town (Maryborough) mostly tho it's people who have a partner looking for a fling. Trust me on that haha
I was on a few years ago & again re recently & guess what....95% are the same women. I don't consider myself unattractive but try & chat to most & either you simply don't get a reply or a short sorry I am chatting to someone & seeing how it goes.
Ok on that point why be on a site if you already have found some one & seeing where it goes. By now you shoul...d have their contact details. Any ways I never paid & deleted the account . Rather be single then the rude people I met on there. I am sure just as many rude men as well & men just wanting a root. Any ways bugger any dating site. Added to how many irrelevent questions they ask
Nothing but a scam, don't waste your time
Was on pof for not even a week, woke one morning account had been taken over, hacked, everything had been changed, could still get into it, as fast as I was trying to change everything back, scammers were changing everything again, then username and password was changed, I'm no locked out can't get into it, also had fake women trying to get me todo live chat, abit late now to realize it was a scam, don't get caught, like the rest of us
A lousy site the so called women were stuck up snobs they wouldn't know what day it was and i wouldn't recommend this site at all ever to anyone who is looking for a partner
I wouldn't ever sign up to this site ever scammers galore I paid for 3 months then 1 morning I woke up some random had taken over my account tried getting in contact still waiting week later keep ur money in Ur pocket not this crap site
POF Plenty of Fraud
After the initial $80 joining fee I had many messages with links to cam chat (similar to FaceTime) all members sending the links were insisting the credit card details was for security reasons but every time I tapped the link it lead me to a page asking for username, password and credit card details. some members even sent me links to other dating sites. The links to the video chat sign up page led me to wonder whether it was a scam by the members or a scam by POF itself as they should not be allowing links to be sent via their message system. ...Either way one would think after the initial $80 joining fee they would allow video chat free. No links for video chat exist but there is a telephone icon which doesn’t work making me think that it must be an extra fee. Nonetheless by the third day all the messages stopped. All in all I rate POF very poorly because after the fee to join all you get is really what the free sites offer you pretty much nothing. Very disappointed especially since you can’t reply to POF. I had to work hard to advise the POF team via email but received no response.
Pathetic dating platform
I had to generate a new profile 3 times saying I had violated sites terms and conditions. I was totally polite and respectful. Waste of time. Lucky I didn’t subscribe!
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
It's a Scam
I subscribed yesterday and almost at once started receiving 'likes'. I responded to three - very attractive ladies. As soon as the messaging started, I knew there was something wrong. The first two wouldn't answer my questions, but instead would respond with totally unrelated things, both 'coincidentally' insisting that I activate my 'LiveChat', something I assume is like an on-line voice channel. They became quite obsessive about it. The third, an English lady, responded in the most basic English - much like a foreign student from Asia (I'm an...ex-English teacher). All three mysteriously disappeared out of my Inbox when I queried their authenticity. Make of that what you will, but if that's not evidence of fraudulent practices, I don't know what is. I've wasted my money - don't do the same!
This is not free, but even if you pay, the chances of meeting someone compatible to you and genuine are slim.
It seems to me based on experience as both a paid up and unpaid member is that many if not most profiles are fake.
As with most dating websites there is no imperative for members to write about their personalities. Instead they can choose categories which are of course inadequate.
Most women (I'm a male) largely describe what they like doing rather than who they are.
80% say they are honest, and seek honest men. I have been lied to by a...
Complete waste of time and money!!!
The most horrid females on this site. Man haters and worse. They shop you till they drop. Such conceited females i have never seem the likes off. Glad i am out of there.
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!
Pof is just another scammer dating site with people just after your money
I thought it was time to get back into the dating game and realised the world has changed so much no one meets anyone like they used too.
So I thought I would give it a shot and oh my jebus christ what a headache of a world we live in now we are all doomed if it keeps going like this.
Know I know why so many my guys just get some random Asian girl and marry them.
I was on the site for about 4 months and in that time I realised that this site is just another scam they were happy to take my money but trying to get back a refund what a joke. I mus...
As other reviews have already said. POF is full of scammers. Gorgeous looking girls connect then ask you to call them using a link to an app asking for personal information. Don't be fooled.
Full of Scammers
Scammers like you then as soon as you start talking to them they ask you to click on a fake link that asks you for your credit card details and then your credit card gets charged anywhere between $41 to $64
Profile removed 2 times 1st profile was removed done another profile and that one was removed also twice I was charged for these accounts. Wiil never return as really disappointed in this site.
Boring never anyone around , mostly people wanting long term relationships nobody chats
It’s crap boring nobody chats never anyone around all my matches are 2 3 hours away bla bla bla bla could keep going on how crap this site is as as ad as as as as as as as
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
Did not use their service for nine months.. still deducted $80 from my account. I contacted them explaining that I have deleted my profile and I have not used their service for the last year and it’s not fair to deduct money from my account for the next year. Still they deducted.
They remind me of daylight criminals who have no humanity and emotions.. please keep your hard earned money in your pocket and keep away from POF !
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?
