POF Has Not Improved

In the first place, Plenty of Fish took my money but did not activate my paid membership status. So, for six months POF regularly sends email to notify me of messages or new "favorite" status. That seemed to work well and I was considering an upgrade back to PAID status. However, this morning, when I tried to log in to the site, they report that my email address does not exist. Given that no longer exist there, I'll just move on to another site. POF has sunk below my lowest expectations. I am considering sending a certified letter to revoke my acceptance of the POF terms of service and have my profile deleted there.

Plentyoffish - Profile Review from Bronx, New York

POF may be free but you pay a price. I have been on and iff this site for about 8 years. All the men I have met there was only ONE decent individual who was truthful in his profile. There are many men with severe drinking problems and abusers. Also tons of scam...

Plentyoffish - Website Review

I went on POF for the first time yesterday. Have never used an internet dating site before, though I would give it a try. I posted pictures of me fully clothed, nothing provocative. And BAM!!!! I got bombarded with "let's meet." So I rejected most of them for different reasons. Such as they drink and I don't or they have pets that I am highly allergic to. Then a couple hours later, I went to the park approximately 1 mile from where I live to walk by myself. And one of the guys from pof that I rejected showed up at the park looking for me!!! That is extremely aggressive pursuit and sneaky. I realized he found me by location service on my smart phone. I was completely terrified to get into my car and drive home. Afraid he would follow me and find out where I live. This website is NOT safe for women! My 2 hour experience with POF WAS HORRIBLE!!!

Plenty of married men and cheaters

Narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths, (all oh-so-charming,) liars, MARRIED men masquerading, and cheaters. Do your homework, ask all the right questions, learn about SOCIOPATHS and PSYCHOPATHS before proceeding, and proceed with CAUTION! Most married/separated men...

Did you read what I said? Also, females that are married will not invite you to the house likewise.

it is not just men I have been on and off of POF since 09 and have had my account deleted several times. They will let you go through all the BS of setting it up again butt automatically delete it because of your IP address. All it takes is one person to report you for whatever BS reason they do not have to prove you said or did anything and the site owner automatically delete your account without any reason as to why

Scammers acting as military

I reported two uses (darlingstef16 and PGHMMA). One claims to be in the Navy (I'm retired Navy) but gave me an Army rank and a job that isn't in the Navy. I reported the user and he is still active. The other person stole a photo from a News article online about a...

I also received contact from Tomhacket601 who claimed to be an Army Ranger in Syria and was returning to the states in June. Within two days of chatting he is asking me for $400 worth of I-tune cards.

He said because his children are in Australia living with his sister. He also said his wife died of lung cancer. I think it is a disgrace that people steal other people's identities and ask people for money. This is the second time on this site that someone has used the same story.

This person threatened me and said he was in the military and was going to get me and could cover his tracks. I think Plentyoffish should remove these profiles as soon as they are reported.

Plentyoffish - Profile Review from Checotah, Oklahoma

Man contacted me that I found out had 2 different profiles with the same pics. One was BlueyeY79 and it was a flight attendant from Orange California and was a Piscese and the other was bill_1976 from Owasso Oklahoma architect with same person photos. He is actually a 60 year old dirty man with phone number 918-899-**** says his name is Bill Peterson. POF does nothing to protect their people even when its something obvious. Buyer and user beware. Do your homework on people you meet here. His not the only scanner. Had another from Oklahoma City. People can put or do whatever

User Caused Issue of Locking Me Out of My Account

Hi! I really enjoy your site tremendously, but, yesterday I encountered a problem with one of your users. It may not have been intentional, however, but I will give the benefit of the doubt. My username as of yesterday was JZchair56. A user named Rachel with the uesername of RV0429 contacted me yesterday morning. We were passing messages back and forth. She asked me if I knew how to use the IM function in POF. I said no. She insisted that she could help me set that up. She asked me for my password. I know I should have never have sent it to her. I figured it was all on the up and up because she is 66 years old. Apparently logic didn't work and why another user wants to screw up another users profile is beyond me. Anyway, soon after I sent her my password, I was not able to get into POF anymore. I tried to get my password reset, but, the message that came back to me that it could not find my email address. After several attempts to remedy the problem, I gave up. I recreated a whole new profile this morning with a very similar username "JZchair59". My belief is that I am getting messages sent to my old account, but, I am not sure. Because of the problems, I was not able to delete my old profile. If you can do that for me, I would appreciate it. I am sorry about what happened. Please inform me of what you found out and your opinion on all of this. Thank you. -John
