Dating fish in online sea
So it seems POF is the one who has been hacked and their customers info are in jeopardy.
So when you call this 3rd party company they will attempt to get remote access to your PC where they will show you the word HACKED first it my email, that was hacked and I told them I just open the gmail account they said oh it must be my network that was hacked.
In fact, the Identity Theft Resource Center, which I lead, received several calls from victims just this month.
In one case, a male victim met someone through an online dating service.
POF clearly don't care about the customers and are trying to rob them.
Plenty of Fish is another of the biggest dating sites that has transitioned to mobile.
The matching system is based with the personalities the users entered on the site.
POF also provides relationship advice and a customized action plan to make the relationship successful.
And there’s no wonder why: Online dating is no longer seen as a last ditch attempt at love.In fact, they’re probably the first thing that crosses people’s minds when they think of the pitfalls of online dating.Interestingly, many of these scams are rampant on other social platforms like Facebook, not just dating sites; that means you can become a victim even if you’re not an active member in the “dating scene.” Illegal activity – There have been many reports of romance scam victims who were coerced into participating in illegal activity.Extortion – Some victims have reported falling for extortion, especially once the talk, shared photographs, or webcam chats turn intimate.
Then the scammer lets the cat out of the bag and demands money not to share the content with the victim’s children, family members, friends, or co-workers.
POF boasts sheer numbers, claiming 60,000 new singles in their community every week.
