I just wanted to share an experience that is quite interesting from back in 2003 or 04. I was using the free internet dating site Plentyoffish, I had some good and bad experiences with it. Found some good girls for serious relationships and was used a couple of times for sex, I presume by married girls. But the interesting part, before POF removed all the woman from FSU countries due to scammers I was talking to a Russian girl that said she was looking for a relationship and all that, we talked and after a month she said she had a friend coming to the U.S. and I should meet her, that she would only be 30 minutes away. Suffice to say I met this girl, and every time I tried to mention her friend she would get angry, she was beautiful and I did not hear back from girl in Ukraine so I ended up dating the Russian friend. A year later after we broke up I find out that my ex actually was the Ukrainian girl, she made a fake profile, and loaded fake pictures to talk to me and meet and see if she wanted to date me.
I no longer believe its possible for me to have one girl forever, I'll have fun as long as I can; until I am to old, and then find a hobby. As for Jehovah Mit and his wives you can have it and I'll have my strange every weekend. ;)
This was a dating case that was in the news regarding a crime incident earlier this year. A guy met a girl (both in their 20s) through this site. It appears that the guy had a conviction regarding having sex with a minor girl in his past which the girl discovered. The guy went on several dates with the girl and he kept "pestering" her up to the point that she no longer wanted to see him. She later agreed to meet him at a local mall. They were talking in her car when she must have gotten fed up with him and got out of the car and walked away. The guy, who has a criminal record, was not allowed to buy firearms. He made a simple pistol using other parts and brought it with him when he met her at the mall. He shot her in the back as she walked away. He then got out of the car and shot her in the head. He pleaded guilty to first degree murder. I guess you can say this was a dating scam which was the deadly type. Her family and friends were surprised that she was dating this guy who was from a different ethnic group and background.
"The women on here are up their own ass and so far have all either been time wasters or turned out to have a boyfriend. Also the majority of them have serious mental issues which prevent a relationship from ever happening. Guys don't waste your time."
"Pof = plenty of fat..."
"Men on here at pof , are very shallow. They are all looking for a skinny pretty model type. They are rude and disrespectful. Don't use pof. It sucks!..."
"Nothing but a bunch of overweight,self centered, narcissistic, crazy psycho bi#ches that are looking for an ATM to raise their half dozen illegitimate love children from numerous baby daddies. If you want a fat bi#ch with an attitude that's on welfare, food stamps and has herpes then go for it.
WHO THE F#CK DO THESE WOMEN THINK THEY ARE???????????"
"I met a guy off of here for the first time and he sexually assaulted me this site needs to be shut down ASAP. I have reported this person four times and his profile is still up women beware of Tilldeath84!!!!!!!!..."
"I wish people would figure this out, already. MOST of the females, on sites such as these, are not females at all, and, if they are then they are handling multiple accounts. Male or female, the dating sites are scams. I have personally worked at sites such as these and pretended to be a female and had answered thousands of emails for men.... I was paid ten (10) cents per email for work rendered. Additionally, I was paid thirty (30) cents to create new profiles, using pictures provided by the site owners. Finally, the site owner himself was constantly asking me, "Don't you know any girls? Do you know any who would pose for us? Seriously, humans are stupid."
"Plenty of fakes that's for sure. Shallow rude stuck up single mom's overweight. So many. Few decent girls on there get swamped with messages anyway and no guy seems to stand a chance. Don't waste your time like so many others have...."
I think we can declare every dating website to be a scam,,, or at least to contain many scammers! I looked at a site advertised on fb called Looxy. They wanted me to login with my email address and password?! I shut the link off, without giving out any info,,, but received emails from them anyway.
I go to the site via the emails,, and there is always one chat request and one message. By the time I look at those, I will get one more request! The longest letter has been “What’s up”? The same thing every day, EVERY TIME!!
I also get several spam each day,,, showing new members, or women that looked at my profile, or sent a letter. The spam usually has two or three profiles to look at,,, but the photos are missing?! Just below it says: “ Email didn’t load properly ? Just copy and paste the link into your browser!!”
I’m sure a virus or malware is waiting.
The women on this site are either 3 to 4 feet wide,,,, or really pretty! I get a couple from the Midwest,,, then the majority are in NY. And 18 must be the default age,, because many of the women are older than me,,, yet are only 18??
Profiles also get their photos from fb,,,, so many have the boyfriends and kids.
As the title thread is about plentyoffish dating scam - this may be of interest.
A man who befriended Alberta women on dating websites only to extort thousands of dollars from them has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison after some of the victims found out about each other online and reported him to police.
Court heard in an agreed statement of facts that Dixon began a number of the relationships on the dating website Plenty Of Fish and then later met them in person.
He told widowed or divorced mothers that he was a helicopter pilot, but later claimed he was a drug dealer who wanted out of the business, but needed cash to pay debts.
In some of the cases he threatened to post nude photos that he'd taken online or send them to employers.
In one case, he restrained a woman while he burned her with a lighter.
One of the victims ultimately lost more than $230,000 to Dixon.
In Odessa, many ladies will get up at 5am to spend 2-3 hours getting ready before they leave the house. They will dress to impress – NOT so much men, but it’s a perpetual competition with other women; women will eye each other up and compare where they stand. Most eat well and go to the gym, so, yes, they look ‘beautiful’. In the end the main aim is to get money from western men
K-dag,,,, POF is a free site to join,, but all you can do is look,,, I don’t think you can write to anyone unless you pay?
The site is loaded with scammers, from around the world. Every site is.
One thing that I noticed during my time standing in line at the old “INS” in Milwaukee, is that FSU marriages are a very small percentage of their business. Mexicans are at least 50%, then Asian,,, mostly Hmong in Wis,,,, then,,, believe it or not,, US women bringing men in! It is usually an ugly and or fat woman too.
LR, I used POF here in California. I did message a few prospects but without success;however, a whale fund me amusing. LOL
POF is basically a free hook up site. So yes , lots of scammers too...Don't need to pay and I wouldn't waste money on it. A buddy here found his 2nd wife on Match.com. Young people will use tinder or similar sites. That's is my opinion.
"You just have to remember, you have no idea who you are talking to," he said. "They may present themselves as one thing and be someone totally different."
Another POF story from Florida. This time the encounter was a deadly one. For some thugs, getting money and merchandise is not enough. They are loose cannons waiting to blow someone away on a whim. If you come upon that type of people, you better be prepared to defend yourself. The age difference was only nine years, so not too unreasonable. But age has nothing to do with character.
