If you do sign up to this site if you enter the forums for any reason, even to just ask advice, expect to be severely berated and at times insulted. Also the other members in there will go out of their way to report and get your account deleted. I am serious, these...

There are moderators. They stopped identifying themselves because they were rude, obnoxious people taking power into their own hands. The moderators are still there hidden in the background.

Poor customer service and forum bullying that no one does anything about

Investigate why I was deleted and if it is users, ban those responsible and reinstate my deleted account. I did nothing against the terms of service and certainly nothing abusive etc.

Review in Social Networks category from Melville, New York

I didn't even set-up the account! Someone else used my email and POF won't let me delete the account! The site keeps telling me I need to wait 24 hours to delete the account I never wanted while my email inbox is being flooded with messages! I've sent an email but have yet to receive a response.

I have received over 500 emails in a week. I can't contact anyone at POF because website doesn't work and phone # are bogus. Will be contacting MY state's AG today, thanks for the tip and let's hope we can stop this!!!

#1038616

Well I'm not waiting in the last 2 hrs I've received 258 emails and have contacted cs and no replies, so I've contacted my State Attorney General office and the local police, and they directed me to a division in the FBI my address will be taken off today or I am pressing charges and this Michael Frind and his staff will be living out their days in jail because I was told since I did not give permission to use my email address and I've requested them to take it of and receiving 258 emails less than 2 hrs is called harassment, stalking, sexual harassment and cyber stalking which is all a federal offense and could receive up to 35 years in jail.

The best thing to do in this case is to contact your credit card company and have them block payments. You can worry about deleting the account after that.

Plentyoffish - Website Review from Libuse, Louisiana

The site removed my two photos of myself and sent me a msg. The msg stated my pictures were not of myself. Now I cannot find any place to contact them. Both photos are of me.. Not of a car or flowers or of anything else. Just me!! Can someone tell me how to contact them ? I tried the phone numbers and it will not allow me to leave msg or anything.

That's true they removed my pictures to and they said it's not acceptable l can believe that l think they need a pictures like a nun and what kind of dating site is that.that's why it's a lot of users without pictures. Them profile don't show pictures because they bother the people's to much for nothing .

DANGER! BEWARE! Huge Potential for ID and credit card theft!!!!

I joined POF and upgraded my membership. Within the first two days I had several potential dates set up and three already made. On the third day - some guy deleted my photos and put up his. He contacted over 100 women! He then changed MY info: DOB, address, password, job, income, e-mail credit card info and much more. He even asked three friends, I already knew, for personal info and they gave it thinking it was me and that I had forgotten it. Very confidential info BTW. He then changed MY password and within hours changed the account name. I no longer could even access MY OWN ACCOUNT! I wrote to POF "customer care" (no such thing by the way) I wrote three very polite messages asking for their help. That was three days ago!!!! NO REPLY FROM POF !! They don't care about my security and safety and they won't for you either! I would STRONGLY URGE you or anyone you know to AVOID them at all costs!!!! My integrity, safety, well being and much more, just got flushed down POF's "customer care" dept.

Umm, that's the entirety of your complaint?

"this guy is bad, he said something which may or may not be true"

All I see so far is a picture of an obvious *** (which should have been your first clue) and a weak anonymous attempt to attack him.

SCAM!

This dating site claims a bazillion members and claims to be free. I doubt that many "members" have actually PAID. You can be a member with very limited access without paying (thus, the "free" claim). That is the scam...you "join" for free and then people see your profile and may contact you via an email note alert from POF. Then, you have to pay to go further. So, there is no point to not paying. As it turns out, there is no point to paying, either. POF will keep sending meeting possibilities that are far outside your search limits and will refer you to people who have not been on line for a year or more. They will send you the same profiles even after you have answered "no" to POF's "do you want to meet" question. So, do not believe the hype about how many members they have or much else about POF. Waste of time and money. I assume that people who give POF a good rating work for POF.

Very Poor Response :: Rip-off

I renewed an expired subscription for 12 months and was charged about $81.00. Realizing my mistake, because I only wanted 6 months, the POF folks issued a $40 credit the very next day. All was well. My account was fine. But a few days later, my profile disappeared; my email was deleted and there has been no way to contact. They kept my money but deleted me from the rolls. Four telephone messages later, and I still haven't heard a word. The contact process works fine, but they're really messing up with accounting and service. I hope I get my money back, or get my account re-established. Whatever happens, this will be my last rodeo with POF. And, I'll tell everybody I know about what a rip-off this outfit has become.

Wow what a joke. Seems their customer service and contact methods suck. It's almost like a outright scam really.

Contact your credit card company to have the charges reversed

Most likely you were banned. The only way around it is to create a new user account on your computer.

Also change your computer name and create a new email address. I VPN would also be quite beneficial, yet that would only apply if the first three above do not work
