POF : Prompts That « This User Only Receives Messages From Upgraded Members » Is A Sham.
I see this prompt start to pop up more and more these days. When you go to message a certain user, the prompt comes up telling you they only receive messages from upgraded users. The first few times I didn’t pay it any mind. But as I saw it pop up more and more, it got me thinking how legit this is.
I know friends who use POF as well so I sent them the links to these profiles to test it out. It was hit or miss. 3 of them were able to send a message to her just fine if they wanted and another got the same prompt I did.
Seems like a ploy from POF to try and push their upgraded membership (which is a huge waste of money).
I don’t mind a site/app to try and push their paid services but to blatantly try and manipulate people is ridiculous. How many potential missed connections are there because women can’t receive certain messages from men because they get this random prompt?
