Pof account deleted for no reason

So I've had a pof account for less than a month. It seemed to be working well for meeting new people and I had hope for finding a woman to settle down with.

I was never rude, never uploaded or sent any nude pictures. Whoever runs this site is like a dictator in their little computer chair, just deleting accounts at random for no reason. Someone else said something about how if one of the lady's finds a man and settles down then they won't pay for their upgraded accounts because they won't need it anymore. They "found their fish", no longer need pof.

Its starting to make sense now when i see that the only people I've ever heard about who's accounts have been deleted are guys. I was meeting new people and getting to know a girl that I would have been great with. I go to login today and see what she wrote back only to find out my account has been deleted. Now I'll never know.

Thanks pof for wasting my time and deleting my account.

If anyone ever asks me about pof, my advice would be don't waste your time only to be let down and deleted. The people running the site are stepping way over the line with trying to control everyone on there.

The same thing happened to me without explanation. I was a long time paying member and upstanding professional.

Same thing has happened to me I been blocked i have tried off and on for 4 years no one will tell me why or give me a reason other than ....We can't provide details of the violation but we suggest you go through our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use. I cant seem to find out why, I don't understand why its so hard to give me a reason.

I often wonder if my ex did something to get me blocked. The site was wonderful years ago to find dates but i did notice a lot of scammers when I was able to use it.

Nothing like presumed guilty. I just find it frustrating.

Have tried to set up an account dozens of times to no avail.Either gets stuck or just repeats the same questions over and over.

POF is full of ridiculously picky unattractive women with incredible demands, offering nothing in return. They don't even fill in their profiles, they say nothing about themselves but only talk about the perfect man they want.

Things are 100% opposite on J4Flirt.com and you know why? Because women outnumber men there, so the men aren't so desperate, as a result the women are more feminine, open and friendly. They take better care of themselves, looking perfectly groomed and pretty.They have simpler, unspoiled personalities and adequate undemanding attitude. You don't have to be knight in armour or Rockfeller to be popular there.

But on Pof you have to be perfect,you have to put in every possible effort to gain their attention, but ask yourself a question, is it worth it? Don't lose you time and dignity, brothers!

While I can appreciate your accurate comments on the behaviors of the women on Plenty of Fish, This is NOT the place to keep spamming your Ukrainian online singles dating website. Please refrain from spamming other websites here.

POF has also deleted my account after taking my money and cannot get ahold of anyone to discuss

OK you will have to call your debit / credit card company and tell them the card is lost, they will issue a new one and Plenty Of Fish wont be able to charge you any longer. Never join any dating apps or websites owned by MATCHGROUP / IAC Corporartion, they own almost all of the dating apps and websites now.

If you read reviews about most of the dating apps and websites they all have problems with accounts being deleted for no reason at all and people being charged money for an account they can no longer access. Do yourself a favor and avoid dating apps and websites if you can.

POF also deleted my profile for no reason. OKCupid is a better one

OKCupid is owned by the same company that owns Plenty of Fish. That company is Matchgroup / IAC.

That company has bought up many dating websites and dating apps and then modified them all to be less user friendly and to maximize revenue through advertising dollars. The reason for the deleting of profiles is simple. They have no shortage of new people signing up and the people that do get deleted they produced advertisement revenue for a short time before getting deleted. It's all about the money, they have no interest in anyone finding a mate and then leaving the website voluntarily, If that happened then that person would not be on the app or website producing advertising dollars.

These websites ALL us bots and scams to get people to pay a subscription or to upgrade. The scam goes like this "Someone is interested in you" BUT you need to upgrade to see who it is or communicate with that person. So the person signs up for a subscription or upgrade and then magically that person that "Liked You" disappears. If you say something they delete your profile and keep charging your credit card for an account you cannot access.

Create your account too fast - deleted, copy and paste messages - deleted, another user reports you for whatever reason - deleted. Stay far far away from online dating and dating apps on your phone, it will only stress you out, make you depressed and steal your money.

My account has been deleted for no reason as well in less than a month. I am a woman looking for a man. Never uploaded banned images or sent rude messages Rubbish site

Only went on Plenty Of Fish to find a real person only to find out there are tons of impostors who will not do the Shield Verification so they can Catfish vulnerable women.

POF - Only went on Plenty Of Fish to find a real person only to find out there are tons...

I used the safety feature and requested the gentlemen to be verified for my protection. They would not verify themselves then they complained because I caught them and wanted me gone so they could continue to scam the vulnerable women.

I am not one of them. They continue to ask you to go to Telegram or Whats App. They give out their number and its a disconnected number from California. So I guess Im no longer on Plenty Of Fish but Im not happy with the scammers.

I am 71 years old and this experience makes me very disappointed. I was only on for two days with the free version so only thing I lost was my precious time engaging with the impostors.

NON CUSTOMER SERVICE. MEN NOT SCREENED FOR SEXUALLY CHARGED OR ‘SCAMMING’ CONTENT!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I had two men in a week who were only interested in talking sexually. One was also obviously a scam (been there, done that). I find that my reply to these creatures has violated POF Community Standards. So tell me POF, what is the best and acceptable way for you to tell a freak to go away? Maybe 'Go away, you horrid little man,' would be more acceptable to your guidelines?

I am sick to death of only getting matched with men who are only interested in sex. I am a person. A mum, a Nanna, a friend. A good human being with a good history! So why, despite what I put in my initial profile, am I bombarded with sex talk, mainly straight off the bat? And also from men on the other side of the world, despite my range being 50 kilometers? It clearly states on my profile that I am not after sex, but a long-term relationship.

The particular man who enabled my post to violate POF's guidelines, straight off the bat, told me he wanted casual sex and kissing. My 'Go away, freak!' to him was the violation. There is no checking made by POF of their content, only constantly trying to tease you into getting you to subscribe (on a daily basis).

Plenty of Fish? Don't touch this site with a barge pole unless you are putting yourself out there for sex only, ladies!
