    Frustrating site because although it's free, when they email you a potential match's profile name, you need to upgrade your account to see that person's profile. So the only thing I can do is not respond to someone who thinks I am a good match, but wait until someone actually sends me a real message. A lot of guys don't do that. Also, I think the site has a lot of imposters on it. Or, there are many guys who think they are Shakespeare. (Or can't write or spell at all!!)

    Although POF is free, I paid the extra money so I could see who read my emails, as well as other benefits. I paid for 6-months. I immediately began corresponding with several women. Then I wasn't able to sign on anymore. I sent several emails telling POF of my issue but I never got a response back. I then googled "POF Complaints" and realized my account got hacked. I again wrote POF telling them my account got hacked and I wanted a refund. POF sends me a complete refund.

      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!

      In 2 days of signing up on this site I received more fraudulent interest than real interest. My account was hacked on day 3 and totally taken over. Tech support has not been able to fix it in the last 2 days. My account has my cc information, so I am assuming that is compromised. Even the manner in which you cancel your subscription requires you to log on (no tech support so they won't do it for you...like in my case where I can't even get on to my account). I prepaid for 4 mo. and they offer no refunds. There is no way to reach out to an actual person. POF security measures all seem to be automated with no persons manning their desk. This site is a complete fraud!

      Reported a scammer from a porn site then POF closed my account for it. Guess they are scammers themselves sending messages that someone wants to meet me then asks for money to see who it was even though they never existed.

      I lost 100 dollars as I purchased a membership for one year and lasted 2 weeks. The sexual harassment by the men on this site is awful. Also, there was no attempt to match people up. Anyone who was totally on the opposite end of whom I would respond to, was allowed to reach me. Actually the last thing a guy said to me is "I am coming to your town which is _____ and I hope you are **. This site has perverted men as a majority. I went to another site which seems to have nice men and noticed a huge difference immediately. Within a week I was learning that I had communicated with 4 fake accounts. The good men are not real. I was catfished twice but caught on before given any money.. The worst experience ever.

      All around good and useful site. Only shortfall is letting you see who is seeing your profile and if they are interested even if they fail to send you a message. Pictures and profiles are OK but it would be more useful if there was more information about each person in their own words and what they are looking for.

      POF.com author review by Mark Brooks

      POF.com, also know as Plenty of Fish, is the largest completely free online dating site.

      • No Charge: While there are upgrade options available to further enhance your experience, POF.com is the largest dating site that allows you to have a completely free dating experience.

      • Profiles may include several photos: Users can provide photos of themselves in various settings as well as both full-length photos and headshots to provide the most accurate information about themselves for potential matches.

      • Advanced behavioral search algorithm: Along with allowing members to perform basic or detailed searches, POF also reacts to the profiles you choose to click on. In future searches, it will then refine your results by bringing you results that match both what you are asking for and what you are looking at.

      • Anonymous email network: Users can email potential matches through POF.com's own messaging service, allowing them to keep their identities and contact info private until they are ready to share it.

      • Profiles are screened before being posted: POF.com staff screens profiles and photos before posting to ensure only appropriate information makes it onto the site.
