POF - Why do they delete accounts for no reason?

I would not recommend POF to anyone for online dating. The interface is very slow. I don't understand what kind of software engineers they have hired.. Lot of bugs.. I am myself a software guy and can tell this site sucks big time.. I can make such site or app in 2-3 days myself.. Try skout, datehookup.. they are much better. One issue me and my friend faced is that when we try to approach a girl, if she is not interested and would just block you.. If u get any 2-3 suck blocks against you your account is deleted.. I mean what the *** They got completely *** policies.. too much female oriented.. I think they should rather make it a *** (actually ***)dating site, only for women so that nobody would mind from anyone.. And atleast guys ego and respect can be saved.. I faced this problem two times when I got my account deleted.. I never misbehaved, abused anyone.. Still they deleted the account then I think the creators themselves have never ever dated.. There algorithm is itself incorrect which finds your matches exactly opposite to what you are looking for.. I mean c'mon guys are you some school students trying some hands on project and playing with people.. I wish I could give it a 0 star. People, there are much better sites out there, please don't stuck yourself into this foolish site.. Thanks, Rahul

Same happened to me recently account just deleted with no reason no warning, and I am a totally normal user. When I tried to mail Customer Services they ignore you and no reply or reason!

What a rubbish set up, when I am a genuine person who is dating and did nothing wrong.

Also very poor customer service too. I agree, dont waste your time, get on a better site.

I had no problems using this site when my husband and I were first corresponding through it with our profiles in 2011. I actually got about anywhere between 100-250 emails per day and they would just keep multiplying so I was never able to leave the website and it just began to get soo annoying with some guys there.

I have seen better sites, yes, and I am so glad I am married.

But I agree. The layout completely sucks.

POF - Deleting accounts

They have been deleting my account over and over and I have not violated any terms etc. What is worst is that they don't have an option to complain or ask questions. They do not give explanations whatsoever about why they are doing what they are doing. Many people still have their accounts and this makes no sense. It is frustrating that you can't get to them so that they can fix this *** problem. Get a hold of them please and let them know!!!! Why do I need to add more words.

WTF POS....I mean POF

I keep getting these *** POF Matches....that Don't match anything about me or what I'm looking for. Get a clue POS....POF. Concern yourselves more with issues/features that We want...like being able to delete people on our recent pages that are gross/disgusting/stalkers/etc. You know, things that Really count. How about ages on pics so in the case of a poor pic (for example) we aren't looking at/accessing pics that aren't even age appropriate? Do you really need Us to tell you these things? Should you hire Us to run your site correctly? Maybeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.....I'm sure We could do better.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. I've had an account there for 6 years as a paying member.

I went to log on yesterday and my account is totally gone and they don't even recognize my email address that I used for 6 years.

What the heck. Match.com may cost, but at least they have a great customer service and a phone number if you have a problem.

  • POF Bad Customer Service

POF username deleted for no reason!!

This is the second time my account was deleted for NO REASON at all. My first user name was Eyegirl2775, then I made a new account with a different email address and username was Shellbell14612. This site has been the most successful regarding meeting and talking to people. I've never violated any of the terms or agreements, however, I find that if I 'fine tune' my profile or add things to it.....it gets deleted. I sent an email to csr@pof.com the first time and of course I received no reply. Can someone tell me how to fight to get my profile back? This is ridiculous. I've met some really nice guys on here and would like to keep chatting.

POF - Rip Off

Update by user Aug 26, 2013

Well, I stopped getting the *** spam, but I still get emails from POF begging me to re-join. Has anyone found a solution?

Original review posted by user Jul 26, 2013

Like many others, it has been impossible to disconnect myself from this POS company. I have followed all instructions for deleting my profile and cancelling my subscription, etc., to no avail. I still get spam from fictitious women and notices of matches. Finally, I tried to play their game. A warning says that any sexually explicit language can result in kicking you out. So, I changed my profile and used as many sexually explicit phrases I could think of. I didn't hear from POF for three days--and then it came back.You can't block their mail because they use a different address for every POS they send you. And they do business out of Canada, so there is not much U.S. authorities can do to help. Is there a lawyer in the house (besides me)?

POF - Can't Get Rid Of Them......

Someone apparently chose to open an account with PlentyOfFish using my email address. It would appear that this garbage beg for a date company allows you to open that account without any verification of the email address you've provided. Now I get a ton of unwanted spam emails daily from them. I tried to stop this, but you can't contact them without using the account password, which of course I don't have because it wasn't me that opened the account in the first place. Because these dumbos must be hard up for accounts, and accept them without verifying emails, now I seemingly have no way out of this nonsense. I can't even locate a phone number for the company so that I can waste more time trying to stop their offensive emails which after just a few days appear to be hitting 50 or so daily. I'd love to sue these bums just over the harassment -- seriously, who are these ***-spammers that concoct a system where there's no viable way of stopping a barrage of emails they send? This is nuts!

Go to the site and where you log in click on the forgot username or password. It should say enter your email to send it to you. Hope this helps.

POF - Cant sign on No Longer!!!

I did not violate any terms of service with the agreementand for some reason, when i try to log back on i cannot, they say it doesnt have my email address in their system neither.I been trying to find someone i can start a relationship but it doesnt seem to be turning out to good..I dont know why they deleted my account but i really would like to get back on.. For some apparent reason, one day when i went to login, my password wouldnt work, i tried everything they told me to do, but it wouldnt even work.. My last resort was looking to see if i can call them personally, but they got no phone # to call them.

POF - Account Deleted

Much like everyone else my account was also deleted for no reason. I had the account for 6 months and sent a total of 6 emails to people. I was NEVER rude at all unless you consider a woman emailing me and the 1st question she asked was "what I do for a living"? I simply replied "oh are you one of those people that it matters what a person does for a living?" And then I said a person's value is based off their morals and beliefs and not what they did for a living. 5 hours after I sent that email my account was deleted. The only contact info I can find for the company is to email them at csr@pof.com I checked their Terms of Use agreement and FAQ page and there was absolutely NOTHING I did wrong to deserve my account to be deleted. This company NEEDS to have a lawsuit filed against them for deleting accounts without giving any warnings or explanations.

Race Issues On POF Date Site...

Who creates a account and starts of with i'm not racist I just dont date outside my race due to their family structure.. That means you are racist because you're still thinking like your folks from the past... And POF doesn't want a race riot do they... Well lets see! So you delete the one who believes in diversity...Who creates a account and starts of with i'm not racist I just dont date outside my race due to their family structure..

Cactuslevel1 I was on that so called Plenty of Farces website from 1/13/2013 to 9/16/2014, a few days past 20

months. When I enrolled with them, I had my profile say Widower seeks Filipina woman for dating & marriage with Filipina woman who seeks the same.

I'm a widower that was interracially married 31 years to a wonderful

Filipina woman when my wife passed away on 3/6/2010. Being that I was married to a woman from the Philippines, Plenty of Farces practiced white on white racism againist me. I have asked, begged & pleaded with

Plenty of Farces to only match me with Asian women of Philippines background, they didn't listen to me at all for

NO REASON. POF doesn't want black men, white men & malluto men to be matched with women that are ASIAN,

HISPANIC & Pacific Islander(Hawaiian,Samoan) at all for NO REASON.

POF is racist, biogted, it is they very worst Of the worst online dating websites in the entire world. Customer Service with them is a JOKE and is a crime to Them, Customer Service is NON EXISTENT. I have filed several complaints againist them, sent letters to 185 daily newspapers in the U.S.

& Canada telling how bad POF is. The Federal Trade Commission recently shut down True.com & Mingles.com last year, Mingles.com didn't even get to be in business at all, but POF is getting away with it in Fraud, stealing, theft, harassment, bigotry, racism,lying and nearly almost all bad business practices they do, and nothing has been done to POF at all, POF has been & is being allowed to get away with it.
