Plenty Of Fishabusive dating site, removes profiles with no explanation, supports predators...

L Review updated:

Plenty of fish is a dating site full of predators, liars, losers jerks and creeps.. Who aer all allowed to have their profile up with no problem... Allowed to harass abuse intimidate users at will... And yet people who've done nothign wrong have their profile removed for no reason and are scammed by pof.. And targeted wrongly. I know my profile was removed from pof years ago — for no reason and they wouldnt give an explanation — btw who rae the goons who run the website? They are very unfair and stupid people... Mny years later — finally I got back up on the website successfully... Met a horde of losers, jerks... Had been harassed by lots of mean guys for no reason... And had to report abuse several times... Was even called by one guy many times who was stalking me... I think my ex boyfriend got on pof and called them and made up lies about me... Next thing I know my profile was removed... And everytime I create a profile, it gets removed... I wrote to pof and got a message that... They did it for 'reasons' they can't disclose... So with pof... Every predator, rapist, sociopath pedophile and psychopath is allowed to harass abuse others with no problem and malicious ex bf's are allowed to badmouth ex gf's and get their profiles removed... Way to go you low lifes who run pof... You must be as evil as the jerks you allow on your place while you ban women for no reason... Sickos...

    Had a disgruntled interaction with one of your users, who told me to "put a bullit in my head' That offender would be "yourmuse32"--yes the typical air brushed photo mag shot-narcississit who cant pose the sophistry to put together a logical disagreement. My review indicated the women are kept desptite the outrageousness of their scam. I know that assissting suicide is a crime, but I dont know if inciting someone to do so is. Can you imagine the outrage if I suggessted to one of your fish to commit harm to themselves or another. Regardless of the criminality issue, the talking heads and press are all over the media incited suicide issue. I will contact my Chamber of commerce, congressman, FCC or whateverit takes. Whenther Im', de-listed or not I will be monitoring this until this persons profile is removed. I'ts my hope that this remains a civil, non criminal matter and a matter of policy. I''m also a mental patient and beggining to feel a bit axious

    I had some italian guy, who had seen a picture of me, talk to me on the phone three times a day for two weeks and tell me his whole life story. he would text me and beg me to call him because he missed me. one day, he suddenly asked me for a "full body" picture of myself. I took a quick one in the mirror with my cell phone and sent it. he later texted me telling me that it had been nice chatting with me and that he hoped I had a nice life! by the way, if you happen to be in the metro detroit area of michigan, there is a guy who calls himself "duke whitten" who has an std and lies about it. I met a male and a female online who warned me about him. don't use this site!

    Plenty of fish: the name says it all.

    It's a catch and release site. of course there are exceptions but you'll have to have the patience of job to stay at it, while you're continually disappointed.
    I really wouldn't recommend online dating sites in general. the vast majority of people lie or bend to truth to the extreme. not a great way to start off a date. the problems range from ancient pictures, to employed or very vague about their employment, mentally disturbed, stalkers, man-haters, extreme baggage, generally unhappy people with too much time on their hands. to put it simply: these people don't have their act together. you'd have more fun in an old folks home playing checkers.

    From a man's point of view, it's very tricky to arrange a date. here's why: the ratio of men:women is absurd and not indicative at all of reality. the result is reasonably attractive women that really overestimate their value. why is this happening? : due to the influx of dozens of men emailing them. this over-inflated sense of self is alive and well online, yet the moment they step outside into the real world, rest assured they're still somebody you wouldn't want to date.

    Pictures bear importance for all. ladies: attractiveness starts visually for men; if you're going to show just your face and ample cleavage, be prepared to show a full picture of yourself. after all, fair is fair. why would I waste my time meeting you if you're not going to show me what you look like. i'm not keen on blind dates.in fact, i've had a woman cancel out on me because she refused to send me a head-to-toe picture. by the way, it's not shallow thinking at all, it's called having a preference for certain body types, and simply not being attracted to others (yes, overweight). these are questions men wouldn't have to ask had they seen you in public. therein lies the problem with online dating. false representation.

    There are alternatives to online dating. put the word out to your friends, family, coworkers that you're single, or join some clubs. anything is better than dealing with the bottom of the barrel. one last note: get your # together before wasting other peoples' time.

    Michael ingram, commerce georgia, known as the georgia horse rider is on plenty of fish a dating site. he is one of the predators, liars, losers jerks and creeps, who is allowed to have his profile up with no problem, allowed to harass abuse intimidate users at will. michael ingram has even called several times and continues to stalk me. this man is a predator, sociopath and psychopath and is allowed to harass and abuse others with no problem and use malicious verbal language. he looks for women who are financially stable and lays a story about how he's lost at love, business, and pleasure and needs a new start. mike ingram needs to join a porn site instead a site with people looking for a relationship! this person is nothing as he says

    Disgusting business practice by Markus owner and creator of POF. His system or himself deletes profiles without any explanation why. Had 3 profiles deleted consecutively after recreating them. I am a well mannered gentleman there was no need. They should not of touched my profile or even read my business. Obviously this Markus guy reads peoples messages. It is not a private dating site, and it is disgusting business practice to delete users profiles which immediatly loses all contact with previous people you talked to. No explanation, no email no nothing. Businesses that conduct business like this are disgusting. It would be entirely no different than Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook deleting profiles with no explanation.

    I would NEVER suggest anyone pay for services through POF. I will continue to blog this all over the internet, getting the word out about Markus and his POF is a good thing.

    Violence is always a problem on POF and if you report it i can say this you will be banned from the site. Even if you turn down invites you will be warned and then they block you from ever entering the site you place your name in and a new email you will be black listed off the site. POF is nothing but a joke. The men not only lie but also violent as well they will force them selves on you and try to make you do things you would never do with out reason they lie to the site about you and then your are banned. I was sad to realize that POF takes lies and the truth... But what do you expect it is free never pay for the site because this site is a joke...

    Daniel is not the man he claims on this site. He lies and is very manipulative. He is verbally and mentally abusive. Dan is married and also has children with a mistress, he takes care of & sees none of his children due to his abusive behavior. This type of deceptive behavior in my opinion is untoloratable. He should not be permitted to use online dating sites to prey upon unsuspecting women who are like myself honest and sincere in a search for the same. Daniel also uses 3 email address to keep rejoining dating sites once he is "outted" so to speak they are ;
    [protected]@aol.com
    [protected]@gmail.com
    [protected]@aol.com
    His phone number is [protected]
    If you contact him re this issue he will become verbally violent with his speech also if a phone call is made he will yell & scream at you.

    As a user of of I will state that it is absolutely true. one psycho after the next. I met one who we only dated officially two days out of almost two months and he does not stop. he and his friends play stalking games and harassment games where they won't stop emailing me nasty messages. they continuously spread rumors about me and he barely knows me. he went and found my ex and dug up stuff to throw at me and say things to try to hurt me even more. please be careful who you meet. of is a bad place. I left my account because others were us sing my pics and meeting guys and talking to them and then these guys came looking for me where I live because of crazy allegations of us dating. he's not the only crazy I met.

    Pof is run by #s. they will go bankrupt as more and more people hate them for their policies. especially the top # for his policy of trying to force people to his way of doing things. limiting emails to a range of 15 years. you gotta be kidding. dictatorial abuse of power. I hope they go bankrupt.

    It seems pof can prevent you from setting up a new account after wrongly deleting the original one!!
    A guy (with small man syndrome and an ego) sends a cheeky message for no reason absolutely slating me for liking tall guys "my preference" but i'm expected to just take this abuse and no to respond! I don't think so!

    well pof you can stick your website where the sun doesn't shine...

    You should check out a situation before deleting someone's account then preventing them from setting up a new one! online reviews will be done and I will slate your crap customer and management services as much as possible!! I have a lot of friends on pof and will make sure they know that pof expects them to be abused on a daily basis and to just accept this abuse or face having their accounts deleted, i'm sure they will be amused.
    It must be a bunch of chauvinistic clowns that run this site!
    Pof encourages online abuse!!

    Females who stalk and harass men they meet through POF and who hate rejection are common.
    Men...beware of one Doree Buck in Portland, OR area. Search for "Doree" on POF. She's a pathological liar and manipulator.
    She has multiple arrest records and convictions in Multnomah, Deschutes and Washington counties for stalking, harassment and petty crimes. She files fraudulent restraining orders if she's been rejected.
    Her criminal records and mug shots are online...look em up. Currently on POF 3/3/16

    Plenty of fish.com is a waste of time & a croc website. the users are rude & only want sex. the markus guy did targeted my profile & removed all my pics & told me not to reply back & that was my only warning. so, this creator specializes in threaten its users.
    Don't use the site & if on it, don't use money on the site. it's good for absolutely nothing. there's also racism up to higher heaven on this site. I was very displeased of the behavior of management & it's users.
    I hope that www.pof.com is on a reported list to watch out for & bypass.

    I have had the same thing happen to me. I have done nothing wrong nor against their so called policies. I was talking to someone on there, had a message, went to check it and it kicked me off. I was unable to log back in. Kept saying incorrect username or password, nothing had been changed. So i created a new profile. It was deleted by POF within a few days. I created 5 that day, all deleted within minutes of being "live". Just created 3 today and all kicked off. Nothing about removing my profile makes any sense at all. I emailed them and got an automatic reply stating how they were sorry they cant reply to all emails, but if you are a paying user they would. One user, before i was kicked off the first time told me to go to hell. Then my profile was removed. It seems to me that this site is discriminating against women. As long as you are male, you're allowed to stay on there, even if married, which the site claims to have a 0 tolerance for. Such a crock of horse poop!!!

    Does anyone know how well they cooperate with police on finding individuals committing criminal acts by finding prey on there? I was recently raped by someone I met on there and who knows if anything he told me was true given that it was obviously premeditated...
    I had reported a user that sent me a cock pic & they deleted him before this incident but he just made a new profile. They did seem like a gender biased site too though. I tried NOT having personal pics & all pics got removed but there were men's profiles that had cars or other images & no others etc that were up whole time I was on there so...? IDK. I deleted my account multiple times because of rude & vulgar men sending vulgar & rude messages. I did meet one nice guy, & thought met a 2nd but 2nd turned out just to be a predator setting up his prey- me.

    In recent days many man porno graphic profiles have been showing up with pictures of sexual acts when these are reported pof bans your account why?/ because markus frind is getting paid by these porno sites to allow them to be on pof pof bans men's accounts right and left for the simplest and stupidest of reasons yet women can use the f word and curse and say nasty thing pof is discriminatory towards men my account was banned to day for simply reporting a black man with a woman sucking on his private parts it is time to turn pof to the fbi and a class action law suite is in the works
    markus frind need to have his [censored] kicked I hope some one hacks that site and destroys all it's data pof is unfair dishonest and full of perverts and scumbags
