I met a person on this website last week. I see others have complained on your board about the site also. I met a person and chatted for 5 days. He confessed on thee 6th day that he was an impostor. He sent me 2 detailled nude photos the prior day that disgusted me. He confessed that he had taken a male model photo and another photo and used them as his profile photos. Actually he was 40 years older than the person he claimed to be. He explained in detail how he wanted me in an intimate setting. I explained to him that I was not interested in this type of friendship. He apologized over and over again. He claimed he did not have many friends and I was the perfect girl he was in search of. He lied about every part of his life. He indicated he would remove his profile and never treat a woman this way again. Yesterday I deleted my profile on the site, cleaned out my computer of any correspondence I had with him and called the police to report him. He now is back on the site with anotheer profile name and anotheer zip code. He will deceive another woman even today probably! Websites that have no screening should not be used. I have learned my lesson from this experience, even though it was a free site. I tried to notify Plenty of Fish but see they are in Canada and there is no phone number. I did not give my address to this predator but he did get my phone number from me. Never again will I place myself into this situation. My life is too precious to be a victim. Be aware of these on-line dating sites that claim theey are legitimate. This one is definitely not!

A man on Plenty Of Fish seemed nice so we exchanged phone numbers, he called me right away saying he hoped I would be a 'naughty girl and have me three ways orally, vaginally and annally" I told him I was not into anal and hung up. It is so creepy and gross that men use this site just for sex hook ups when a person is looking for someone nice!
It makes a person want to get off the site. How many sex predators are using this site and sites like this to get their sex thrills.

The first guy that I decided to meet was an International criminal. I contacted the Canadian Anti-Fraud Unit which is a government site. He didn't get any money...but he was able to steal my photographs and a lot of my identity. A friend of mine from the RCMP helped me threw this ordeal.

The second man from Edmonton claimed he was seperated which EQUALS = "STILL MARRIED!* Was looking to 'date'. What the hell are you doing dating when you are still married @#$%*$@? Claimed he was a Captain of a Firehall. Always had an excuse for not meeting me. He even had the nerve to try to make me jealous and sent me photographs of a 'necklace tree' & 'curling iron stand' he made for his latest bimbo. He deliberatedly went out of his way to emotionally harm me, and had no concern for my emotional, physical or sexual well being. This man continues to operate on the POF website, but likes to hide his profile. I am having a really hard time trusting any man now, and was suicidal after this was over with this man. I was so emotionally abused. I am now in counselling, and would NEVER recommend any woman date any guy from POF. It's a predator buffet.

I have been chatting to a man on POF for 9 months now. He had lied about everything in his life except his job. I done a check on him and he is married and not divorced like it says on his profile. He has told me a lie about where he lives as well. He always has to bring sex into the conversation and what he would like to do to me. He has sent me nude pictures of himself which I have kept for proof if needed. When I have asked to meet hi he always has an excuse. He wont give me his landline number and his mobile is always switched off. He has also gave me a false name. I have now got his home address and telephone number and real name. Just waiting for him to get back in contact then I will have my revenge. This site is a disgrace full of perverts and men just looking for sex. When joining POF they should be made to give their National Insurance Number so that a check can be done on them before their profile is accepted on this site. I am disgusted

why don't you people who have had problems tell the rest of us what names and such these scrounge bags are using so we can have a heads up if they try to use that name again?? That would make some sense.

In the past I had many men of Mid eastern descent contact me all claiming to be "From France". Upon pressing them for more info, I demanded to know their place of birth which was always a Muslim occupied country. Now I will say this upfront; I have and had have friend who practice the Islalmic faith that is not the issue here. What the porblem was in these cases was that there were a large number of males between the ages of 20-40 years old, all from countries where terrorist activies have been problems and had been put on terrot watch lists...they were emigrating to France and becoming naturlaized citizens, THEN coming the United States and misreprsententing their nationality, thier country of orign, even their professions. Once they realized I was onto them, they wanted nothing t odo with me. I did contact the administator about my concerns. I promptly deleted the profile and later opened a differnet one. I have not seen any of these men on the site since.

I guess it is just a case of "Buyer beware" so to speak.

I met a man later on who seemed nice, who when I ran background checks on him and ran his name through various social circles (although at this point he resided in a differnt state) checked out. No criminal record, not on any sex offender regisrty in any state where he ever resided...I was very methodical in making sure he was "safe"...In the end, he began exhibiting some odd behaviors regarding how he ran his business and out of the blue dumped me, explaining that he was dumping me to go after his ex-wife in order to pretend that he was "In Love" with her (he even put this all in writing in emails and text messages so i have the proof) so he could get her money and assets since his business was tanking...And thought I would go along with it and wait for him!!!

Again, no matter what its "Buyer Beware" we all have to be careful...

I also have an ex friend, a female who is on pof.com on and off who is a sociopath. she cons men out of money, gifts, cars...whatever she can get...she changes her profile handle on a regular basis...I am guessing that men/people in general might be catching on to her. So, yes, there are a lot of weirdos on dating sites...

Met a 'shy humble' man on pof. As time went on he became controlling & abussive. He became a completely different person, I met his shell of an ex wife, I was slowly turning into her. He raged and wanted to choose my outfits, long silences, and sarcasm became the norm. I escaped after a vicious attack. He went straight into a new relationship so I felt safe. However he is now stalking me, I am recovered from the abuse but was suicidal after the final rage.
I reported him to plenty of fish, he appears to be a true predator, very plausible. He is in his new relationship, but continuing grooming more on the site he spends hours every day on the site.
I found out that he was sectioned and diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder & borderline personality disorder, his ex wife shared this with me after his final melt down. Plenty of fish have allowed him keep this activity up despite my report.
He is very attractive, a smooth soft, y spoken "shy" executive. His current partner is suffering right now, he continues to declare his true love to me and is grooming more of us daily.
