POF - Richardd9191 is confessed scam artist
Update by user Oct 28
Clearly POF administrators have no concern for the safety of their subscribers. Richardd9191 is still on this site.
He has just changed his picture and now he's from Troy Michigan.
All I can say ladies is, PLEASE, PLEASE BEWARE. This man cannot be trusted.
Original review posted by user Oct 24This is to Plenty of Fish Corporate Executives. I have contacted plenty of fish twice about this man. He present himself to me as being from Bennington, Nebraska. Over a period of 3 weeks or so we talked on the phone and via text. During this time he did several suspicious things like not being able to meet because he had a business trip to New York. While in New York he mentioned he was a gems dealer and had a package coming that was very valuable and was looking for someone to accept the package. A few days later his mother became ill, a few days after that, shock, his mother died. Off to Germany to make arrangements. While in Germany he is now having trouble with his bank in America. To which I told him to call them. Then he was back to can't find someone to accept the package. I offered to accept. Then he send a ridiculously false document for me to sign saying I will accept the package. At this point I want to see where this is going so I had a friend sign it and emailed it back, then he needed my driver's license so I blocked out the DMV # and sent, still looking to see where this is going. The next morning, 10-23-19 he calls me first thing in the morning. (I am not a morning person) He tells me he is still having bank issue and the package is ready to be delivered, but there is a small fee. I told him that I cannot pay for anything. He said it's just $1,450.00 and I could send him my credit card number and he could have money transferred from his card to mine. (Weird that he could use his card for that but not to pay the delivery company, Al_Qasis. Which is non-existant,) I finally hung up on him and he continued to text me and call me at work. After work I was really aggravated so I texted him with the intent of getting him to confess. He called me and continued to try to talk me into giving him the money. When I finally told him that there is only one person on this planet that I would loan that kind of money to and it wasn't him, he hung up. There were a few texts following in which he began to threaten me. I asked him if he was going to blackmail me and he said yes and then threatened me with the FBI. I have a few non pleasant things to say to him. He started swearing and calling me names and then I blocked him on my phone. I did not block him on POF because even though I can't message him, I can follow him. Back to my complaint - I message basically all of this to POF cust svc and got no response yesterday. I made the complaint again today just noting I want something done and I want to be advised when it is done. Nothing was done. Now, I am on the site tonight and this guy is still out there catfishing with the same profile with the exception that he is now from Adel, Iowa. Please let me make this very clear to you. If I find out that he has actually managed to scam someone in the past or future I will throw POF under the bus for not making any attempt to stop this guy. It is irresponsible and your IT team should be able to come up with his IP address and disallow the service to him. I get that there a many scammers out there and you cannot catch everyone of them, but I am handing him to you on a silver platter. You need to be responsible and do something about him. I have added his photograph for every woman out there. Avoid this man's profile on Plenty of Fish at all costs.
