A formal investigation needs to be launched into the deceptive marketing practices used by POF.com
I have tangible evidence that PlentyOfFish - the worlds creepiest, most dishonest dating site - is illegally distributing the information of it's members to third parties.
I signed up for the site, and used my personal email address. Big mistake. I cancelled my account a month or so later. Shortly after, I started getting emails like this one:
Hurry up! Nobody likes waiting too long...

So how do I know that POF divulged my information to them? Because POF was the ONLY dating site that I ever signed up for using that email address. [continued below]....
..... And a user name was created for me, without my consent - the same exact user name that I created to use on POF!!
I am 100% confident that with a little digging, other members will find that their privacy has been violated by this unethical dating site as well.
This is not the first time that POF has been caught engaged in deceptive practices. Not long ago, POF made headlines for using the photos of deceased US Service Members in it's ads. How low can you go?
