They are doing nothing to prevent these profiles there's got to be a way to screen people two IP addresses or just to look at your profile when it's first put up or the first few messages you can tell right away that these are fake profile. beside is absolutely useless it's got me so gun-shy that a few women to did reach out to me I told him nice try scammer and here it was an actual person.

you're a 100% correct it's like they are doing nothing I've reported several of them and nothing happens I see them still there in the view list that they viewed me.. some of them are actually paid members it must be a small price to pay to make hundreds of someone they scan.. I've had six of them so far just tonight..

Thanks for this thread. As soon as I saw an external link I stopped and looked it up!

I have been searching from both POF and CLC. I encounter a lot of scammers from both. Anyone else had experience with CLC ?

Thanks for the heads up people. Just got hit with the same scam message and with a little research and reading your messages, I dodged it. Peace!

They are all saying the same crap . Ohh no need for CC get varified. And you know right away with their broken English and terrible grammar. Most of them are from some African country like Ghana. And my favorite is “I’m so and so by name” I mean who says that “by name”. They have been watching to many movies. I have to show them a picture of an article that states that there’s no Video chat on POF. But this lame ass scammers keep persisting . What about the one “im all alone at my sisters house” or “I’ll suck your d___ go join this 🍆🍅🍎🍏🥔🍊🌶👎🖕I’m like what the hell is that I have to go get you groceries now??? Then come f___ me it’s free tonight. Man that’s really annoying.

They're also targeting upgraded members. if you enter your POF login information on the website that they provide a link to, they will take over your account and start trying to scam people from your hijacked account. Seems more legit if you're getting contacted by an upgraded member. I've seen an upgraded account go from a female to a male. I think the guy recovered his account.
Also, I think the company that owns POF is allowing this to happen, maybe because they benefit financially? I have noticed that when I report an upgraded account, it rarely gets deleted before 5 days or more. Standard scam accounts get deleted fairly quickly, within minutes or hours. I've seen an upgraded scam account stay on the site for over a month.
POF = *censored*!!

Yep I nearly got scammed today - I clicked on the link then put my username and password in - then realised "oh sh*t what am I doing?" I googled it and got this thread luckily. I quickly changed my password on the pof website. It got confusing because both pof and the scammers were texting me codes by this stage. I think I'm ok now though - I have given them my pof username and mobile though so fingers crossed no more trouble.

In hindsight it was silly of me to go along with it but you know how it is with a rush of blood to the you know where and you're a bit of a sitting duck.

The scammer had a paid account and was a pretty blond (like someone said maybe hijacked?).

Be careful out there - if you think it can't happen to you then you're possibly more vulnerable.
