Plenty of Fish

Plenty of Fish POF.COM claims to be a free site, while it's not a free site.
They're scammers... is SCAM!
NEVER give POF.COM your credit card number and NEVER order paid services from Plenty of Fish.

Meet me

I keep getting multiple meet me requests and by the time I get to them to view their profile I get a message stating that this user has deleted their profile or was removed by pof. This is happening over and over and I just joined last week. It's pretty disappointing every time I check.

profile keeps getting erased

I've been on POF for a while now and I've had my profile deleted for no reason several times. I am also a single female with no inappropriate pictures. I'm a professional and don"t bother anyone. It's irritating that POF allows men to send me nude photos without my consent, but erases my profile for no reason.

Profile Disappearing

So, I had my POF account for about a year, no problems other than the app occasionally being buggy or down. The other day, out of the blue, I got the login screen and it wouldn't accept my login info, even though it hadn't changed. I thought the app was just down, but no.

It allowed me to re-create my same profile. I used the same username, email account and password as before, and suddenly it works again. I don't feel my account was banned, I feel this was some kind of glitch. I rarely message anyone first, so I certainly never spammed anyone, used copy-paste messages or anything like that.

Also, there is nothing sexual or otherwise inappropriate about my profile (I'm a woman.) No racy photos, no scantily-clad swear words, etc. My intent is to find a relationship, so I wasn't messaging anyone with inappropriate text either.

Since I know I didn't break any rules (and had not been very active on it for weeks other than to sign in and check messages), I'm considering it a glitch that probably needs to be remedied. The fact that it allowed me to recreate the very same account using all the same credentials points to it not having been a problem with my actual account activity.

My account is disabled for no reason

I had an account on and it has been deleted for no reason and without any explanation. When I created a new account a few minutes later I stopped being able to send or receive any messages. I did not realize it got disabled or quarantined until I attempted to contact my friend and he said he did not get my message. After that I created a new profile and after receiving about 20 messages within 15 minutes everything stopped again. Again I am unable to send or receive messages. I sent numerous emails to pof supprot asking for the reason it happens and help since at first I assumed the issue could be related to my computer settings but even through my phone I was unable to send or receive messages. Apparently pof responses only to upgraded users and totally ignores free users. I have never posted any fake pictures, never wrote anything inappropriate on my profile or replied to inappropriate messages. I feel very upset especially because I do not understand what could be wrong and unable to get an answer for weeks. My pictures are real and decent too. Yes I am very good looking but since when good looking people are not allowed to use online dating websites? Please help me to figure out what could be the issue here.
My very first user name was Beam_of_Light - it got deleted without any explanation or notification. The second one that I assume was quarantined was Beam_of_Light85 and the most recent one was luchsveta. My contact email is [email protected]
Please help to resolve this issue. I feel like I am being discriminated for no reason.

I was almost potentially scammed for thousands of dollars. Had I not been savvy in this area, I could have easily been drawn in. The profile name was gator1956 (profile ID# = 4173886). He contacted me on 6/18/17. His profile stated he was from Clearwater FL, and I live 1,000 miles away. I have been single for a while and would have never considered a long distance relationship but felt this was some kind of fate. What this person did was build a fake profile stating he was a widower and used someone else's picture and I believe they copied the text from another profile, appearing to be very successful, naive and sincere. Then he tried to get information out of me as to my status, and after a couple of emails stated that he is in love with me. I saved all his texts and emails. Then he asked for my physical address and sent me flowers, stating he loved me and wanted to surprise me. I totally bought into this lie. What girl wouldn't? One statement from him I question: "I will love you in this life and the next." Then he said he was awarded a huge project in Malaysia; that should have been a flag. He stated he will be there for 8 weeks. He sent me pictures of the job site (who knows where this was taken), and a picture of him having dinner. Then suddenly after a few days there he said he was robbed at gunpoint by some "Indian gangsters" while he was in a cab in between the jobsite and the hotel. He immediately asked me for $19,950 because he has no money and needs to finish the project. I thought, "if he is so successful, he should know what to do, and should have resources to amend this situation. And...they didn't steal his phone?" I told him I do not have the $$; I suggested he file a police report. He stated they attacked him a gunpoint, and if he went to the authorities he would be killed. He told me not to say anything to anyone. I then suggested he contact the U.S Embassy in Malaysia. I gave him the number, and he said thanks. Then he said, "can't you even give me $1,000 to support me for the weekend? I promise to pay it back." I knew it was a scam at this point...and went into POF to block him. Amazing. His profile was gone. I do have it on an xps file but cannot attach it here. I attached a couple of pictures that were in that profile and can provide any additional information at your request. I tried locating a good phone number to report to POF so another person is not a victim of the next scam but the phone number they provide is not good. I do believe this person will try this again, and has done this to other women. This needs to be addressed. I do not trust Plenty of Fish at all. I am deleting my account. Please advise if there is anything else I can do to capture this individual.

deletion of my account

My U.S. account was suddenly deleted after more than 5 years of use plus payment for one year for an Upgrade situation. I guess the confusion is that I also had a second account in Portuguese foro POF.Com. Br that is a por account in Brazil. PLEASE , restore my account asap specially because all my records and ladies' accounts are all there. Thank you !

Password Reset

I have been an off and on user of POF since 2008. Recently (4 weeks ago) I updated my phone App and have not been able to login since. I've requested a Password Reset Email several times to be sent to my registered email and have yet to receive it. I've also email [email protected] for assistance and nothing from them either. Getting really frustrated. . . anyinput?

profile deletion

My profile has been deleted twice in as many weeks. Both times there was no warning, no e-mails and no response from their "customer service" which for the most part does not care enough to a. answer the phone, b. respond to e-mails. The second time was a clear hack as a friend of mine took a snap shot of the new profile and it was totally hacked.

POF is, without a doubt the worst of all dating websites. It is managed by wanna be Nazis who act without warning or courtesy.

I urge everyone to avoid this site, it is not worth the trouble that you will be put through.

Not even 12 Hours

I didn't even have a profile for 12 hours and I was banned! I'm a female, sent 1 message. Got 1 totally inappropriate message about fecal matter. Woke up and the account was gone. I'm new to online dating and I'm done. I've never ever heard of something like this. No message, no explanation etc. What if they have me confused with someone else? You aren't alone, there are LOTS of people banned for no reason, explanation etc. It's weird no doubt! But if this is how a site conducts itself, go other places. I was ALWAYS cynical about POF - for years, I refused to even consider it. My assumption was correct.

Deleted accoubt

Hmmm I've read enough to understand I'm not alone in having my account deleted without explanation, and, like many others, feel that I didn't break any of their rules.

And... I'm so okay with that. In a weird way. I'm happy. What a crappy experience online dating has been, in many ways. I have met some very good friends, life long friendships through this site. Not love connections. But good connections nonetheless. I guess I kept coming back hoping that at some point there would be something more.

So, what I want to say is; thank you for randomly deleting me for no reason. Moving on now... yay!

My ex keeps hacking my profile

Emails [email protected] and [email protected] Any profile I set up my ex hacks in and does stuff to get it closed down. I want all photos and profiles deleted off now I can't get in because he changes the passwords
I tried customer service but they have not replied my ex husband has a computer company its simple for him. I tried hiding my photo and using another name but it is pointless. He finds them all with help from idiot friends.

Stay away from Ranchsorter23 Alan Golick. He is bad news! He is physically abusive and currently awaiting a trial date for domestic assault! Girls if you want to try this... prepare for dishonesty, manipulation and being punched in the head while you sleep....

Not a complaint

I've noticed people complaining about accounts being deleted.
I've been randomly logged out of my POF account on my phone and can't get back in...

I find when you log into a computer on your account then log back in on your phone it fixes the problem.

I hope this is helpful, have a nice day!

Mark David Miller on Plenty of Fish

I don't have his user name (only part I could remember is he has the name Dave in it ) any longer from the Plenty of Fish site. Be warned, this guy is very slick and poses as a businessman ( importer of cocoa beans supposedly) and went to Accra, Ghana for some months (January to April or who knows he may still be there and be rotting with the beans! )on the pretense to buy the cocoa beans and then asks for money for shipping them. He is very charming and had me fooled. We had some disagreements, and then he makes you seem like the bad guy for thinking bad thoughts of him. Please be careful as he will say that he loves you and you are the "perfect" one for him and "we were destined to meet."

This user hockeystar6, 34 yrs old, from Hampton,NH and works ambulance company per profile but really is unemployed. He had scammed 2 women on this site and got $3,000 from each woman. He wants text immediately and wants your phone number and gives his. He also wants you to text and/or email sexy photos. He might look like a handsome guy but don't be fooled, ladies! He had been messaging with me all the while he had a girlfriend. He told her he deleted the account and asked me to meet for a drink Thur night after only talking for 2 days. I found out who his girlfriend was and sent her a Facebook message, she told me he's a liar, uses women for money. He is unemployed and took $3000 on her credit card and took other girls on dates. He also lied and said he was single for 6 months. When asked about his job, he dodged those questions because he's not employed. All the while with the girlfriend he was using another girl and staying at her house, taking her on dates with girlfriends credit card. The only reason they found out about each other was because girlfriend contacted his father to let him know and get her money paid back. Ladies, he will sweet talk you, tell you what you want to hear, say he's not like any of the other guys in pof, that he is honest, never cheated, and never will. He seeks out fits who have good jobs and have money because he had none. He lives at home with his parents, who pay everything and are paying back these 2 girls who can't forward. He will probably date you for awhile then use the feel sorry for me I have credit or financial problems and then that get ladies give him money. Since, this incident went down he's been grounded by his parents and can't go anywhere. This due to his dad having to pay these women back.

Money scam

Beware of Bruce Smith (C.I. Ltd.) of Campbell, CA and/or Cape Town South Africa, [email protected] After 3 months of lovely text and emails and a couple of phone calls only, (no face to face meeting), he finally asked me to send as much of the $70,000 he needed for his 'mums' health and business issues ASAP; when I refused, he vanished! I am afraid that he has scammed other women out of funds, he can be quite charming!

Automatic recurring charges to your financial account ROBS money from you even if you have cancelled your POF account prior to renewal of your one time upgrade! Please check for automatic two year recurring payment registered by POF on you Paypal account, bank account or credit card. THERE WILL BE NO WAY YOU WOULD GET YOUR MONEY BACK. Comparing to other dating site, POF.COM is like a con man. I will never use POF.COM and nobody should. My bad experience in summer, 2016... When I chose the one time payment at for a 2-month upgrade option for $37+ using credit card via Paypal or any other means. POF made you believe that you would only be charged for that amount once and be able to cancel your Prfofiel in POF and their service to you anytime without further financial obligation. In my case, after I authorized the payment, Plentyoffish (POF) actually put in a two year automatic recurring payment onto my account in Paypal but I won't know about it (as you thought POF only charges you once for the upgrade as said in their website). POF didn't inform you at all about the recurring charges in the invoice or in your profile in POF. I cancelled my upgrade two weeks before it expired and closed my account (actually, POF never really deleted your account). So, you thought you were done with POF... WRONG, When it comes to renewal, Paypal or any other means you used would automatically send another $37+ to POF. Paypal won't stop the payment because they said I authorized a two recurring payment to replied my email once to say they won't refund even thought they lied about the payment option at its website. After the first email, won't reply my subsequent emails. I hope this helps the person who plans to buy the one-time two month upgrade.. DON'T use POF.COM! There are other honest dating site. If you are current user of POF.COM, I will suggest you to check for 2 year automatic recurring payment registered against your method of payment right now!

POF account deleted for no reason

I registered on POF for the first tim, but already the very next day, my account was deleted. I haven't done anything wrong, sent a single message to another user, asking "have you studied in the same city?", nothing else. No nude pictures or other things. Next day I want to check for a response - but the account was deleted, the email address for resetting the password is not in their database anymore.

Sending an inquiry to "[email protected]" is useless. No response seems to come back from this address.

Conclusion: POF is a waste of time.

Disturbing GA profile

Ladies and gentlemen - be warned. Watch out for your loved ones. This profile uses NLP grooming verbiage to prey on potential victims.

About Me

I am a person of integrity and honesty. I am told that I am great listener, a great communicator a compassionate Man with a warm heart. I'm told I'm an amazing Kisser.;) I love to laugh, having fun, being with friends, social and charity events, etc. I'm one who makes friends easy. I don't sweat the small stuff or things I cannot control. "The only thing one can control is oneself". While working Logistics for a large retail corporation for another 20 years I have a passion for Real Estate. I bought my first property at the age of 18 and have been buying properties as income producing property and have been doing so now some 25 years. I sold off the majority of these properties just prior to 9/11 doing very well financially. Having seen the housing market crash that we're facing today, I'm able to buy properties for less than what I paid for my very first home. So a couple years ago I started buying property again. In this distressed economic housing market; I'm buying (paying cash) Single Family Residences Condo’s (with low HOA fees), as rentals and homes to potentially flip.

Both my parents are still alive, still married. My Father is a Retired Army Officer. I have three other siblings (3 boys, 1 girl). My parents attend Church regularly. Having been an "Army Brat," My Father’s Military career took us to several parts of the U.S. and abroad lived in places like England, France, Germany, Holland, and Thailand. For those reading this, I am a social drinker; I have never done any drugs nor do not associate myself with those who have drug and alcohol addictions. I was married nearly 18 years and raised a step-daughter from the age of 8 years old till she moved for the final time, to attend college. In another 5 year long relationship I raised a little girl at the age of 3 years old till she turned 8 yrs. old (I'm very protective of a child). My relationship with a child is a parental one of which I take seriously. So, I do not have commitment issues. My relationship with a woman is a romantic one built on Chemistry, Communication, TRUST, Respect, Love and Boundaries. If you do not know God and Christ is NOT part of your core values, we are not a good match.

I am an Alpha Dominant Taurus Man!! We Taurus are by nature a little stubborn yet, affectionate, attentive, romantic, compassionate, touchy-feely. However, do NOT mistake kindness for weakness! Having taken a Bill Gothard Seminars, relationship courses, studied Psychology, human sexuality, childhood development. It is very difficult to balance judging someone's intent, philosophy, and approach through written word... We as humans are genetically, pre-disposed, pre-wired, pre-determined to behave given various aspects of who we are as Men and women with very primal want desires, needs that people at times have difficulty putting a label on. Me, I crave the POWER of your wanting/need to surrender to a Man (which has NOTHING to do with one's career/life responsibilities, etc). I seek a real-time like minded woman to be my complimentary devoted counterpart through life. You must love the loss of control. The gift of being submissive is not to know what is going to happen and being made to do whatever is required of you.

"Capture A Womans Mind, Her Heart, Her Soul, Her Body Belongs To Him!"

I think It's important to understand us as human animals and the attractions bringing two together.. It is in the context of a relationship that a woman is FREE of those social bonds to the sexual creature a woman was meant to be with a Man... Once she has come to trust in those desires, wanting to surrender herself she then begins a journey bonding with that Man through is touch, his smell, his voice, and his seed which fully marks a woman as his... All she truly asks for is to be protected; cherished, nurtured, molded to his wants and respected for all that she does and is to that Man. I love the sexual dominance over my woman, teaching her, molding her, making her do what I want… It’s a HUGE turn on and not just for ME but for her (YOU) as well.... I promise not to devulge these secrets to other...

There is always in any relationship the C.C.T. (Chemistry, Communication and TRUST). With out honesty and TRUST you have nothing. E.P.E.(Erotic POWER of Exchange) the journey in corresponding, talking, dating one another exploring the chemistry, which is an extention of that C.C.T., then finally the T.P.E.(Total POWER Exchange) the mental and the physical aspects of surrendering one's POWER to another.

If you're curiously intrigued come say so. If need be, being that I am a Gentlemen, add me to your Favorites. If I find you equally interesting, I'll come find you; IF I'm also intrigued... What you don't know I will teach you; your whole perspective on love and life may change for the better!

First Date

Everybody has issues/problems, some are just greater than others. Everybody lies, some just lie more so than others. It takes being vulnerable (your strengths, your weakness, any triggers) to give yourself unconditionally to a Man whom you wish to belong to. A woman by her very core is a sexual creature. She's the nester, the nurturer, the care giver, mothers of children. A woman was designed to be breed. She is selective whom she wishes to belong to in obtaining the best possible genes/seed; she need it, wants it, craves it as his seed marks her as his woman. Yes, it's blunt but, it is what it is in Black and White. "Good Girls Go To Heaven, Bad Girls Get Punished!"


A submissive (a bottom) (Male or Female) pleases when it pleases them. A switch, is one who can play both a Dominant/submissive. A slave (a Bottom)(Male or Female) pleases whether it pleases them or not. A babygirl and Daddy's girl are different. A babygirl is an adult woman drawn to older Men wanting that affection and attention she never recieved from her father. The flip side to that coin, a Daddy's Girl is one who was charish wanting for nothing by her father, (a spoiled BRAT) yet, still drawn to older Men. There's more, a hell of a lot more about surround us in our human sexuality.

Meet and greet: Drinks and appetizers, communication, laughs, explore if there any Chemistry and watch for body language.
