Narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths, (all oh-so-charming,) liars, MARRIED men masquerading, and cheaters. Do your homework, ask all the right questions, learn about SOCIOPATHS and PSYCHOPATHS before proceeding, and proceed with CAUTION! Most married/separated men...

Did you read what I said? Also, females that are married will not invite you to the house likewise.

Avoid this dating site. Better to pay more for another site to keep out the "riff-raff", but watch out for Catfishing

it is not just men I have been on and off of POF since 09 and have had my account deleted several times. They will let you go through all the BS of setting it up again butt automatically delete it because of your IP address. All it takes is one person to report you for whatever BS reason they do not have to prove you said or did anything and the site owner automatically delete your account without any reason as to why

I reported two uses (darlingstef16 and PGHMMA). One claims to be in the Navy (I'm retired Navy) but gave me an Army rank and a job that isn't in the Navy. I reported the user and he is still active. The other person stole a photo from a News article online about a...

I also received contact from Tomhacket601 who claimed to be an Army Ranger in Syria and was returning to the states in June. Within two days of chatting he is asking me for $400 worth of I-tune cards.

He said because his children are in Australia living with his sister. He also said his wife died of lung cancer. I think it is a disgrace that people steal other people's identities and ask people for money. This is the second time on this site that someone has used the same story.

This person threatened me and said he was in the military and was going to get me and could cover his tracks. I think Plentyoffish should remove these profiles as soon as they are reported.

Plentyoffish - Profile Review from Checotah, Oklahoma

Man contacted me that I found out had 2 different profiles with the same pics. One was BlueyeY79 and it was a flight attendant from Orange California and was a Piscese and the other was bill_1976 from Owasso Oklahoma architect with same person photos. He is actually a 60 year old dirty man with phone number 918-899-**** says his name is Bill Peterson. POF does nothing to protect their people even when its something obvious. Buyer and user beware. Do your homework on people you meet here. His not the only scanner. Had another from Oklahoma City. People can put or do whatever

User Caused Issue of Locking Me Out of My Account

Hi! I really enjoy your site tremendously, but, yesterday I encountered a problem with one of your users. It may not have been intentional, however, but I will give the benefit of the doubt. My username as of yesterday was JZchair56. A user named Rachel with the uesername of RV0429 contacted me yesterday morning. We were passing messages back and forth. She asked me if I knew how to use the IM function in POF. I said no. She insisted that she could help me set that up. She asked me for my password. I know I should have never have sent it to her. I figured it was all on the up and up because she is 66 years old. Apparently logic didn't work and why another user wants to screw up another users profile is beyond me. Anyway, soon after I sent her my password, I was not able to get into POF anymore. I tried to get my password reset, but, the message that came back to me that it could not find my email address. After several attempts to remedy the problem, I gave up. I recreated a whole new profile this morning with a very similar username "JZchair59". My belief is that I am getting messages sent to my old account, but, I am not sure. Because of the problems, I was not able to delete my old profile. If you can do that for me, I would appreciate it. I am sorry about what happened. Please inform me of what you found out and your opinion on all of this. Thank you. -John

THOMAS LASHER SCAMMER on POF & FB

He contacted two of my widow friends & TRIED to scam them out of money. Texting back and forth on facebook and also on plenty of fish. He wants you to wire monay to Judy Edwards in McKinney Texas. Says is wife and daughter died in a car accident & son is in coma. They both have facebook profiles. Taking advanctage of poor widows for money is lower than low. Thomas Thrasher may be in Canada. Judy is in on this Plenty of Fish/Facebook scam.

You 'upgrade' your account. Your account is then deleted.

You then have no way to access your account to cancel your recurring subscription.

How can a website get away with this? POF will also bill you for one year when you think you are signing up for a one year subscription.

Recently this military photo was used in a money scam. After four weeks of communication the request for me to exchange banking information was made. The request was for me to deposit funds into my personal account then notify when funds clear.

Banned for no reason

Like a few reviews on here, I took about 45 minutes setting up a profile only to apparently be banned for no reason. I hadn't even been registered long enough to contact anyone or even view anyone else's profile (and I didn't have any inappropriate pictures posted). They don't even bother telling you your account's been cancelled. You just get an error that the username or password is incorrect. Then when you try and reset the password, they tell you the email address is not in their database. Horrible company

Almost identical to my own complaint on POF. I will let my opinion of this company be known across all of my social media and I encourage others who have had a bad experience to let the world know.

I do not expect to get a refund, nor do I expect any outreach from POF. Helping to usher them completely out of business should be seen as a merciful action.
