I recently went onto Plenty of Fish to see what all the "hype" is about. I got an initial barrage of hellos from various people and then a very odd message from one man.
The profile didn't seem to match the note written. A handsome gent with a graduate degree was writing to me with extremely poor grammar. That was strange. As I continued to read his notes...he supposedly lived in my area, but worked "off-shore" as an engineer/drilling contractor.
He pushed to not communicate on the site but rather via text messages and giving me a cell number with a California area code. He kept referring to me as "dear". Who says that these days unless you're "out of touch" or trying to kiss up. He also kept saying "I be like to know you better".
What? No concept of the English language. I checked all the on-line sites cautioning against scammers from Nigeria...and this guy fit the bill. I reported him three times to POF, with no response.
I thought that was really poor on their part. How unconcerned they are for the welfare of their members. As I'm not gullible enough to fall for a *** like this...some may, and even if it's only one person...that person could be taken for a ride they will never recover from.
Shame on you POF for being such a low-life dating site. You should be shut down.
