I was the victim of this platform - please read my stories and share if needed
Scammers from Nigeria or Africa use this platform as I was a recent victim of this. Zoosk facial verification failed as I happened to talk to a guy since May this year until October before I recognised he was a scammer. Claimed himself to be Brian Hilton- psychotherapist, worked for US troops in Afghanistan, and coming back to Australia soon. This scammer was very sophisticated. He even managed to Skype with me with a moving images of the other victim (the guy), or whatsapp to talk to me everyday, Sounded very smart and very understanding. Then...he asked for money due to his situation, Itunes card, and flight tickets. My loss, but I don't want any of you out there become the victim again, as this is very my first time on online dating, and funny thing is when I questioned him a lot, he didn't want to run away, admittedly he is a scammer but he felt in love with me too! Totally nonsense and I had to block this scammer. I had written to Zoosk with the guy victim's photos, and the number of the nigerian scammer after he used his number to text me to apologies to me, but I have not heard from Zoosk at all. I really want to stop any scammer who might use the guy's photos again to fish any poor women out there like i was, and the nightmare is they might used my exchanged photos to scam the other guys out there eventually too. This is a life lesson for me ladies, i had tried to report to scam/fraud organisation and a few places but I don't know how can I stop. Attaching photo of the guy whose was used here, if you ever see this similar face on Zoosk or any other dating websites, please notify me, or stay away from them please.

The concept is there but Qld men fail in most areas on the site. A high percentage of men don't care about their appearance at all, they look 20 years older than they say and it's very unappealing. The didn't have the nerve to ask me out but got aggressive when I didn't reply. Users can send a smiley face or heart which is hardly a conversation starter. Many of the males were just a disappointment. The polite ones were thousands of km away - which didn't make much sense. I paid for 1 month & I see men in a much worse light than before I used Zoosk. Terrible experience and all talk/ no meet ups.
What a crock of crap
Keep getting the same like from blocked views and likes hardly anyone that matches my criteria . Don't waste your money, go to a bar or club instead, at least you can have a drink costing less than this!!
October 11th 2019 Update: Nonsense
Just sent in a about review about getting the same likes and it happens again, are you freaking kidding me? Obviously a money grabbing site. What a joke of a site! As i said in my previous review, go to a bar/club.buy a drink more value for money!
Don't like the app cruise nobody people.
Don't want to be on the app because Papua New Guinean people are so mean.
Papua New Guineans are ugly. Australians are ugly to. Nigerians oh the biggest scammers in the world.

all scammers or fake photos
I subscribed only 6 months. I have got more than 5 scammers and more than 6 fake id men. Zoosk just verify the users, by facebook, by telephone numbers, mostly. You can create FB by using fake ID. You can find computer generated phone numbers in the web and call forward to it. I went to another site for a short time, I had to take photos myself otherwise i could not register. I did not renew .. wasting time, wasting money to deal with fake people.
Beware the pitfalls on this site.
This site has a lot of gawkers, con artists and puts up fake profiles who one day live close to you and the next day the same photo comes up with a different name living 4,000+ kms away. This is not a one off! It appears the sole purpose of Zoosk is to keep you interested, whatever the reason, when you're not interested in some of people they say are matched with you. Crooks!
As well intentioned Zoosk may be insofar as meeting members of the opposite sex I do have doubts that some profiles are not actually genuine and are used to entice members to update membership. This is my opinion only however and of course it would prove difficult to actually determine if this is the case. Undoubtedly there are many success stories of people meeting through Zoosk so really it's up to the individual if you wish to trust online dating sites

Questions & Answers
What does it mean when a connection has profile photos one day and not the next day. Conversations are still there.. if I click on the messages it shows he is online. But his profile doesnt appear at the top on my connection page to say he is online. When he goes offline his profile appears back on my connection page. Very curious to read the replies...thanks
