I wanted to give a heads up to ladies on POF who get messages from fake profiles of guys pretending to be in the military. I have gotten these a few times in the past year and anytime I reported it POF would ban my account an hr later saying I violated the terms of service. Yesterday there was this profile that messaged me and the photos were all black and white except for one. The guy claimed he had black hair but the profile showed blond. Everything about it seemed scam and he kept saying he doesn’t play games. I called him out for scamming and pretending to be in the military and he blocked me. The line he used was have you ever dated a military man before, and that is the line all those scammers use. Finally I reported the profile and an hr later I was banned from my account. That is such crap.

  1. What do they gain by impersonating military men? Weird.

    (I don’t doubt you, I just don’t get what the point would be)

  2. Hmm its interesting to see the opposite perspective of this app, im a guy and usually the fake women profiles have a very attractive woman and then one word in the bio, or sometimes question marks and the profile is just very bland, and when they message, its often broken english, but not always. Its kind of creepy actually, i wish people would get real jobs instead of scamming. But to get banned for reporting a profile makes no sense, that makes the app seem broken and im personally liking it less and less. I think ill delete it soon.

  3. Isn’t that called « stolen valor? » They are committing a crime by impersonating military, but pof bans YOU for reporting them? Ridiculous

POF : What’s your go-to opening line? Or what’s something that’s drawn you in? Feel like I’m swimming upstream.
