How You Can Easily Recognize A Fake Account On POF.com Singles Site
Why are there fake profiles on Plenty Of Fish Dating?
Money. That is virtually the only reason fake profiles are created on POF.com. Fake profiles on ANY dating site are generally one of three things:
- Someone attempting to market or sell something through Plenty Of Fish. This is usually someone who is affiliate marketing another dating or adult related website that pays a commission for each person they get to sign up. The way this usually works is that the first email the reply back to you with says something along the lines of hey, 'check out my more complete dating profile here [link]' or 'I have some more naughty pictures you can look at here [link]'. In fact, there are some people who use our POF Auto Message Sender software for this purpose, even though it is not a practice we agree with or endorse.
- Someone hoping to lure a member of Plenty Of Fish to send them money through the practice of catfishing. These people are usually in another country and can be a room filled with people performing this scam. Even if only one out of one hundred people get tricked into falling in love with the fake profile they create on Plenty Of Fish, that still means thousands of dollars being scammed out of the victim of the catfish.
- Loneliness. Sometimes people create profiles because they are lonely. Although this is the least common reason for a fake profile on any dating site, it happens. These people are either older or less attractive, so by putting up fake pictures of someone more attractive than them, and making a fake profile that is a more attractive person than the real person behind the fake profile, will attract more attention from other POF members.
Plenty Of Fish is pretty good at filtering out bad profiles. One thing that is a dead giveaway that usually gets the fake profile deleted pretty quickly is putting a url or web address in their profile, which is why the fake profile creator's main goal is to get you off the Plenty Of Fish site and onto another one or at least get your communications with them off the Plenty Of Fish dating site.
How to Spot a Fake Profile on Plenty Of Fish
Most of the fake profiles on Plenty Of Fish are female profiles, hoping to scam desperate or lonely men out of money, but there are fake mens profiles, attempting to scam females as well.
Here are some tips to spot a fake profile:
- They are beautiful. Usually, too beautiful. In other words, their profile says they are 45 years old and when you look at their profile pictures you think to yourself 'WOW, is she smoking hot, especially for her age'. That is the most obvious and most common first sign that the dating profile you are looking at is a fake, or at the very least, a real but deceptive profile (reason #3 above).
- They usually have only one or at most, two pictures on their dating profile. Since the images are fake images stolen from some other website, it can be difficult for the scammers and fake profile creators to get more than one image of the same person.
- The profile pictures are on the revealing side. MOST women don't post pictures of themselves in a bikini on a dating site. (some women do post pictures of themselves in revealing clothes but these profiles usually have several other normal images as well).
- Their section on Plenty Of Fish is short. This, of course, depends upon how much effort is putting into creating the fake profiles but most of the time the About Me section of a fake profile is only a sentence or two long and the information is very generic.
- The first or second email they send you will include an attempt to get communications with you off of the Plenty Of Fish dating site. Quite often these 'reply' emails are 100% automated by software as well. Real people with real dating profiles usually don't want to move off of the dating site, where they first started talking with the scammer, right away. This is especially true of a fake female profile. There is no way an attractive women is going to remove the safety of the dating site boundry right away. Even unattractive women won't do this. In your first email with a POF member, if you suspect the profile is fake, be sure to ask a very specific question that can't possibly be answered correctly by software or someone who does not understand your language very well. For example, let's say the persons profile says they live in Florida, USA, ask them if they like all the snow they have been getting the last couple of days. If they say something like 'it's too much snow for me' - it's a fake or if they answer with 'yes I am doing very well, thanks for asking'.
- Perform a reverse image search. Right click and copy to clipboard the url of one of the profile photos in the reverse image search. This can provide a lot of information about other places the exact same pictures can be found at other online locations.

What to do to Avoid Fake Profiles and Getting Scammed or Catfished
The best thing you can do for yourself is be willing to be honest with yourself. The old statement of 'if it is too good to be true'. Usually the people you see on Dr Phil who end up being victimized are people who don't want to see or know the truth.
There are too many real profiles on Plenty Of Fish. If your gut instinct is telling you the person/profile is bullsh**, move on to another profile. Don't even take the risk. These people are really good at telling you what you want to here so if you want to hear THAT more than you want to hear the TRUTH that is ringing between your ears, then you're leaving yourself open to being scammed by a Plenty Of Fish fake.

Spot Report Fake Pof Profile Reason For Report Options.
Before you submit the form to report the fake profile, Plenty Of Fish gives you a sort of warning not to waste their time just because you are mad at someone because they did not reply to your message or rejected you or something like that. I would strongly advise heading that warning as Plenty Of Fish deletes profiles with no remorse.
How Many Profiles on Plenty Of Fish are Fake
Compared to many other dating sites, especially free ones, Plenty Fish's fake profile count is pretty low but this number seems to be creeping up lately. My personal experience on the site is that about 1 in 40 or 50 female profiles is fake. The percentage of fake male profiles I personally have no idea of.

So many FAKE Profiles! - Plenty of Fish (POF.com)
The following review are owned by whomever posted them. This site is not responsible for what they say.
So many FAKE Profiles!
Review for: Plenty of Fish (Overall Rating: 3.12 / 5)
-If the guy says he works in the military and posts a picture of himself in his uniform, it is likely fake. Especially if he says he is on a "peacekeeping mission." That means he is a scammer and will tell you the military lost funding and can't afford to come back to the states and will need you to send him money (AS IF)!
-If he says he is 52 but the picture is of a guy a lot younger or so good looking that he could be a movie star, it is probably a fake photo. Use Google Images to check the photo and confirm if the pix being used are real or of an Italian actor or NFL player. One picture was of the Old Spice guy! Some people are so damn sneaky and stupid that they think you will fall for it. DON'T!
-Many will try and string you a long with e-mails but never want to meet. That usually means they are married or incarcerated or living in Nigeria or God knows what but they are not interested in a real relationship.
Scammers like to use super schmaltzy/sugary language in their profiles and will talk about love, romance and how they pray every that God will send them their soulmate. If they say they live in your city, ask them what part because they likely live overseas and want $ from you. And if they say they are widowed or their young child died, that is usually a lie as well. They want to suck you in with a sob story.
Bottom line. Pay attention and be careful!

Candidates lie a lot about themselves and that's a big turnoff for me and others I know who are signed up. I am still a member but proceed with lots of caution. The pandemic has kept me off the website but now that things are opening up again I will began looking again.
Website is how I met my lady boyfriend Jimmy **! Really cared a lot about the guy but he turned out to be a cheater but a pretty great website all in all, if only I could block the cheaters that would be great! But a good safe dating website.

Pretty good site. It allows for all members to search by location and to send/receive messages. One can post in their profile a write-up of as little as one sentence or as long as half a page. There are plenty of members in every age category.
I met my husband on POF. I’ve always been off and on but have been permanently off the site since Nov 2019. I’ve met others on here that were just looking for a hookup but eventually I found my soulmate. Thank you POF.
Have not been able to signup with them, Tried various time in the last 3 months, There are a couple of questions they ask you, When you click on to it nothing happens, I have contacted their customer service about it, I don't know how many times, None of them seem to understand a person, When are they going to resolve this problem with their site, I have talk to other people, Who said the same thing happen to them also when they tried to signup with Plenty Of Fish.
I signed up only to have issues with POF still profiling me with pictures from google. Currently at private mother's birthday party, called twice to get my acct deleted. Wiped clean. I'm still on pof. WTF
Paid in full for 3 months but went on it 2 weeks later and I'm not in the system. Refund the money or fix the problem you goofs. I'm tired of having this happen and want you to be clear. It is called fraud and whether or not it is in Canada or the states you can be charged. Now time for you to own up or ship out. I either get my money back or I have charges brought against you. And I'm sure this site is monitored.
I report scammers every day and nothing will be done. They let anybody sign up and seriously have no shame to let poor women get burned. Sites like this should be shut down if they can't get their stuff together. Too many women get scammed out of money because they are desperate.
Do not sign up for auto pay. They make it impossible to cancel. I am about to cancel my credit card to stop them. It's been 6 months and every effort I have made has not stopped them from taking out payments.
I am a retired US Marine, I uploaded a pic to my personal profile of the Marine Corps logo and it was removed due to their communist, cowardly guidelines. I can not get ahold of anyone, there is a phone number for customer service, when you call it states "You may leave a message but they are not checked" lol. What is the point?

Fake accounts pof
Do you want to get back into the dating game after a shorter or extended break? Nowadays, that is easy thanks to the numerous dating services and websites. One top-rated service is Plenty of Fish or POF for short.
There is a flaw with POF, as with most other dating services. Some of the profiles are fake. If you want to learn how to tell if the POF profile is fake, keep reading. You will learn about different methods for figuring out such profiles, why people do it, and how to stay away from them.
Why Do People Make Fake POF Profiles?
You are not the only one wondering why some people decide to make fake dating profiles on various sites, including POF. There are several reasons, but the most prominent ones are low self-esteem, wanting to scam people, as well as sheer boredom.
People with low self-esteem are everywhere, and if that’s the reason why they are faking, you can at least try to understand them. They are not evil scamming liars who try to steal your money. That kind of fake profiles is the worst and the most dangerous.
Scammers are running rampant on all dating services, and there is no exception or safe place. However, they usually aren’t too bright, and you can see them from a mile away. We’ll discuss them in more detail later.
Bored people are slightly more malicious than the lonely ones. They are toying with people’s feelings, and there is no excuse for that. The thing they are doing is called catfishing, and they are often messing with people using hot profile pics, and claiming to be somebody else.
On rare occasions, there are also jealous significant others, stalkers, and internet trolls. You should report all sorts of fake profiles if you happen to get in touch with them on POF.
The Best Way to Avoid Fake POF Profiles
There are specific measures you can take to stay safe from fake POF profiles. If you can, don’t communicate with them at all. As soon as they send you outgoing links, or try to move the conversation away from the POF platform, disengage from communication.
Scammers would often try to lure you into clicking on shady links containing malware or selling you some products. Only move to other platforms when you know that you can believe the person. There’s no telling when to trust a person on a dating site, but use POF for at least two weeks before moving the talk somewhere else.
Don’t worry because scammers don’t like meeting in person. They always come up with some excuses, even if they claim that they live near you. That’s also a smart way of testing a scammer, ask them out and see what they say. You don’t need to go through with it. We advise not even considering it.
Become a Dating Site Sleuth
This list could be very long, so let’s list the most common tells of fake POF profiles. Here are the steps you can take to determine how genuine a profile on POF is.
- Their profile looks out of the ordinary, with over the top pictures or About Me sections. Sometimes the images are out of place, showing cleavage or their swimsuit. These are undoubtedly fake profiles unless they have more than a few pics, and some of them are tasteful.
- The about me pages of fake profiles are usually short and monotonous. If it seems robotic to you, it is likely a fake profile. Look for profiles with longer descriptions and proper use of grammar if you want to stay safe.
- Besides the short about me page, fake users also have only one or two pictures on their profile. When a profile seems too effortless, it is most likely fake.
- They will try to convince you to use other means of communication. Never say yes to that if you’ve only met the person. These are often automated messages. Ask them something particular if you want to see if you’re chatting with a bot or a human being. Always keep a keen eye on the grammar, as it can help you notice a fake profile.
- Take into account their profile picture, description, and who they are claiming to be. If the person looks a lot younger than they say they are, the profile is probably fake. Most scammers pretend to be attractive women, please don’t fall for that like a typical lonely guy.
Reverse Search Their Picture
If you are talking to a hot stranger on POF, always consider searching up their image on Google. It’s easy, follow the steps:
- Right-click the suspect’s picture on POF. Select Copy Image Address (or URL).
- Open Google image search.
- Click on the camera icon next to the search bar (Search by Image).
- Paste the image address you copied in step 1.
- Click on Search by Image.
- If you get many results of the same photo model (they probably took a celebrity, model, or stock image photo online), you can safely assume this POF profile is fake. Often, these scammers use the same picture on more than one dating website.
That’s a very reliable way of recognizing scammers on POF or any other dating service. Don’t forget to image-search a sketchy profile when unsure of its authenticity.
Don’t Get Catfished
With the advice you got here, it will be nearly impossible to get scammed on POF or any other dating website. Always report a profile if you notice that it is fake so that admins can remove it from the platform.
If an image is unrealistic, consider an image search for this person. In case they sound funny or odd, ask for specific details or ignore them altogether.
