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!

Not even worth checking the notifications. Scammers more than anything else, I regret ever trying this app. POF team makes no effort at all to verify the members and are only interested in getting you to pay.
This site has more fake members then real... Stay far away. Profiles are constantly hacked and nothing but hookers and porn sites trying to scam you! This site does absolutely nothing to verify the legitimacy of each and every user.
I would not recommend that anyone become a member of the POF dating website. They have a lot of scammers, bots, and even the people that work for POF will send you messages just to try to keep you on the site... You cannot trust anyone you meet whether you're looking for a guy or a girl. I spoke to several guys and of course none of them ever wanted to meet and that's because they were either lying about who they were or they weren't real. I also suggest that when you leave the site you make sure to delete your profile, your pictures and any other information that you post about yourself. In my opinion I'd say stay away.
Over the last few months POF has suddenly become full of a huge amount of Fake profiles. I reported all the ones I spotted and added proof by using Google image search and TinEye to show the person's photos were copied. I made POF aware that the site was being targeted by a huge amount of fakes who would only send a link to a sex site Momhook.com And got a standard reply back from POF saying, "We are sorry you have encountered non genuine members etc, Please use REPORT USER if you come across non genuine members." So I did just that. Reported approx 25-40 each day Thinking that I'd be helping others by getting the Scammers removed. Now Suddenly I can't log in. Starting to think POF has kicked me off for reporting all of the fakes, Which in short would say, "Don't report the fakes. We don't care!" Which is a shame as the site already has so many complaints made on other review sites.
Clearly someone is hijacking your experience. Clever little ruses to get you to spend money. Lots of fish but unfortunately they are all red herrings, in short, I doubt any of them are real. If they are real and someone messages you, then their account is immediately dissolved so you will never know. Someone at POF is having a good laugh at your expense. Remember, they make money as long as you DON'T find a match. There seems to be a complex algorithm keeping you on the proverbial goose chase. Should've called lol not pof. This algorithm deletes all accounts of girls you could possibly connect with.
The red flag for me was when a suposed Mexican hooker advertising for ** apparently, then said I had been blocked by this user. Not likely. Never known a hooker to turn down business...lol. All I said was HI. Whomever owns pof now thinks you will never wise up to their trickery. But we all know hijacking and sleight of hand is the future of this medium. Use your street smarts. No one wants you to succeed so you will be blocked, hijacked, redirected, fooled, deceived until end of days. I'm sorry. The love of your life is not on the internet. Just a sucker. YOU!
