Account keeps deleting?

So I had an account for months without issue, and when I cancelled my premium subscription, ever since it has deleted my account. I have tried making new ones (even with a different email) and it just deletes it within a few hours by saying there is no account with that name and I cannot login.

I even get confirmation emails when I sign up etc, what is going on???

Is there anyone I can contact about this?

Many thanks for any help

You have been i.p banned.

Support won't give two fucks, so follow these steps, make a new email address with an unrelated name, turn off your router for 5 minutes to cycle out your i.p, sign up for the website again, use an unrelated username and password, use freshly taken pictures in case pof user some kind of digital watermark, leave the profile up for 24 hours and you should be good if its still there.

If you did all that and your i.p address changed from the reset/switch off you should be ok, pof uses an automatic banning system with a blacklist for i.p, pictures, email addresses and possibly unknown factors, you should also avoid viewing or messaging people you previously contacted, one of them might have reported you for whatever reason and may do again, add to that getting blocked enough times gets you an automatic ban.

I'm sorry that happened to you. POF has weird auto-banning systems, and you might have been caught in one.

I had a female coworker who literally looks like she 14, super small and petite with a very young look, but she's actually 25. She had about 5 messages from guys saying if she's old enough, and her account was gone the next day. She didn't want to bother with it again, and I was sorry to her too.

That sounds quite similar to me, I'm 19 but I look a bit younger than that so it could be why, I'm gonna try what the other guy mentioned here. I also wondered if it was because I cancelled my subscription as I didn't want to pay for it anymore.

You see an attractive girl so decide to check out her live stream and you wonder if it's the same person 🤔

I'm a guy and have a question about something that's happened a few times now. I'll be chatting to a woman, a handful of back and forth messages, and they suddenly ask to talk to me on kik, much sooner than I'd assume most women would be comfortable with. Am I just being paranoid? Or is this a thing that scammers actually do -- try to get you off POF and onto kik? I just don't see how a scammer would benefit talking to me on kik, but it feels odd if it's real.

EDIT: thanks for the replies, I thought as much.
