POF.com Plentyoffish POF.com knowingly allowing minors to use dating site Internet
*Consumer Comment: I'm really confused..
*Consumer Comment: Question:
POF may be knowingly allowing minors to sign up and use their site.
The member colorguardlvr22 has an online profile which states that the member is 20 years old. But in an email, user states that they are 16.
POF was notified. 24 hours later, the account is still active".
I used dating sites when I was 16, but I'm a guy;. Do you have any idea how dangerous dating sites can be for a 16 year old girl?
A second warning was sent to POF approximately 24 hours later informing them that if they did not act diligently that the media would have a field day with this. A week passed - and still - no response, no action on the part of POF.com. Total disregard for the safety of minors who are using this site - even when it is brought to their attention.
POF needs members? They seem more desperate than any of the degenerates who use their site!. POF has already been caught using the pictures of deceased service members in their ads|. Remember - POF is a Canada based company'. They have no loyalty or respect for the United States of America, our laws, our values or our way of life?. Their actions have proven this time and time again!.
I don't know they do things in Canada Marcus, but in the United States of America this kind of b.s. is frowned upon. Stop knowingly letting minors use your site. At least create a separate section just for them. That would be a fair compromise, because what 16 year old doesn't like to date? I was scouring for chicks on Yahoo when I was 16. Let them do what they are going to do, but let them have their own, safer section. Refuse to do the right thing, and you just wait and see I will send an avalanche of resistance your way.
