        I was hacked on this sight by someone who change parts of my profile and deleted my photos. They signed me out and I couldn’t get back in. I was getting tons of responses from other members. I contacted PoF and was able to reset my password. I had to fix what she changed in my profile and reinsert my photos. I searched conversations she had with other members, found out her name and number and reported that to PoF. I think at this point she is not active in my account anymore.

        I have met great guys that were not in my area but became good friends for years. I wish we were able to meet but the expense of traveling, stopped us from meeting in person. I was able to talk on phone and video chat, we got to know each other well. I am still friends with these great guys. I know if circumstances changed I would probably been with one for years. I liked the fact I got to know them well and if we could have met it would have meant much more. I think it gave me a chance to meet men who just didn't want something from me but were truly interested in knowing me. I believe always friends first.

          This is an old review but I’ll send it anyway. Back in early 2006 I started chatting with another POF member. We mostly kept it epistolary until five or six months later when we finally met face to face. We met at a Japanese restaurant, ate and talked until they closed. I must say we hit it off, later closed our POF accounts and got married in a Japanese park the following year. Today I can truly say we are still married going on eight years in a marvelous and wonderful relationship!

          I was recently scammed by a STEVEN **, whom I fell in love with for over 10 months, he took all my savings and loans, lost my house and car in the process, he keeps asking for more money to come see me and things from where he is keeps coming up, claimed to live in OK and Michigan and went to both addresses. Nobody has seen the person before, went to the army he serving, they have no record of him, I was more than devastated when he continued with the story after I caught him, in a bid to recover my hard earn money I contacted the FbI, who later gave me a tutoring.

          I was catfished in a love scam and there was little to nothing they could do about it, was able to hire a private eye who helped. Hired www recoveryknight .com, was able to trace my suppose born in Michigan Major to west Africa, he was able to get access through the details he provided me and was able to pay back $620,300 and still reported him his government after, this was a lot from where I was. So if you’re going through this get help and get your funds back. You can thank me later. This helps get you back on track.

          First of it was free! I tried 3 other sites prior to this one which weren't free, and they were busts. Second it had a good chemistry test and enough space for writing your profile. The % of chemistry you shared with potential matches was helpful. It was easy to use and communicate with others. It wasn't hard to use if you had to update information or tweak details. I eventually found my match, after only having to meet two men, the second one was my match. We have been together for 6 years now and have just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary! We are both so thankful to this site for helping us find each other. It honestly is a great site to utilize and I strongly recommend it. And again it was FREE!

          I am so frustrated with this website. So many clearly fraudulent profiles. Someone may say that they have a masters degree and then their profile has poor writing skills. Others have a nice profile but when you message them, they are from another country and speak broken English. I have tried to contact customer support but I have received no answers.

          I was satisfied with the product. I paid for a year subscription and stopped using it after 3 months. I thought I closed the account and stopped using it. I'm told I didn't actually close it, just paused it. Despite the fact that they can see that I haven't used it in 8 months, they charged me for another full year. I noticed the charge 5 days after they charged me. I asked for a refund. They acknowledged that I hadn't used it, but still charged me for the entire next year. They are more interested in charging for clearly unused service than they are keeping a customer happy. Pay close attention.

          Don’t waist your time specially if you are a women. They have no customer Service. No one to help you. You send email and no one ever gets back to you. I got a profile and everything was ok. One day I was not able to get in to my profile no matter how much I tried to reset my password. It tells you to put your email and they will send you a reset link. I never received anything, I signed out again with the same email different users name and made another profile and the same thing happened. I tried to do the same and yes it works but I have to start all over again, I don’t care to be on this site anymore.

          My problem is I have probably 2 profile active with pictures.??? I want my profile delete it and can’t.and no one to help me. I have spent hours trying to find a solution for this. Writing emails. Making calls and absolutely no respond. Don’t waste your time with this. It’s not worth it going to this aggravation. I have been in other sites and is soon as you have a problem with always someone to contacts you. Customer service are good. This is just horrible customer service. Actually no customer service whatsoever????

          Joined POF to help me write an article about online dating sites and apps available. The fake accounts are prevalent but that's not the real issue. If you displease a premium account, yours will be blocked. If you don't answer a premium account, you will be reported and blocked. There is no customer service. There is no explanation. "Your account is blocked because we said so". I made 12 accounts to test. Four of them still remain active because I am "nice" to any premium account that messages. The other 8 are blocked the moment I disagree with a premium accounts' view on women and how they are to be treated. The verbal abuse premium accounts allow themselves is staggering. Nothing happens if they are reported.

          I was subjected to gruesome role play requests, a frightening number of pain related questions and a lot worse! A lot of the suggestions made by POF premium accounts were not even legal and can be viewed as an assault. POF doesn't care. I have reported premium accounts numerous times. They are sill active. Other similar sites are bad and favor their premium accounts but POF is frightening.

          A few months ago, someone logged into my profile, changed a few profile information and sent out about 70 interests, making a lot of email for me. They were all very undesirable matches. I responded, as I did not want to get kicked out for this. A few men told me off, or wanted sex. Men were sent interests telling them to phone, or clink on a link. It was a USA number. I reported it to POF. They didn't care at all. After about two weeks, they finally sent an email advising me to change my password, which I did myself that day. I wrote back asking if they were investigating. Without a response. They don't care about our safety.
