Is it just me or is there a lot of these profiles popping up. I used to see one or so a week. Now I see 3-6 a day. I report them but I think POF doesn't take it seriously or they own the site. It's pretty sad that they can't put a filter in to block all spellings of it. I can do it on my computer. Doesn't take a computer programmer.

I call bullsh1t. The 'L' is 'casual' alone can be represented by a half dozen characters, and if they spell out 'dot' in 'dot com' the 'o' can be done several ways as well. Twice. There's fourteen characters in the web address, plus several random spaces placed in between. Our brain is excellent at transferring characters to letters ( like '5' becomes 'S' ) and they can also put two angled slashes next to each other for the letter 'A' and so on. The possibilities are not as finite as it might seem. If you're so confident you can build a script, I'm sure Match or POF would love to hear about it. Otherwise whining about it in the forums and claiming to do better is a waste of data.

Then you're not too bright. I can build scripts very easily and I am not a programmer. It's time that POF bans hotmail, outlook, gmail, yahoo email accounts. If you have to use an isp server mail account, it might stop a lot of the spam.

Then what is left? AOL accounts? Work e-mail? Smoke signals?

POF already scans profiles for listing email accounts and alternative communication sites. That's why the spammers spell them out phonetically like 'geee male dawt kahm' and things like that - even then, a lot of frauds are tagged and bagged within an hour or two of popping up. It's really more about being aware of what fake profiles are like, and actually reading them before sending messages or adding 'Favorites' or clicking 'Meet Me'. If you send a notice to one fraud account, you're pretty much guaranteed to get on someone's 'hot list' and get spammed with 3-6 more. Be careful about who you post to, and the spam goes away - or at least becomes severely reduced.

OP, it's not just you. At least one other person has mentioned that site in the forums. I thought he was making up the name as a joke.

Well, I've had 3 check out my profile just this morning, probably within an hour. Lol. It appears to be rampant, that and women who start a dialogue w/ you and then by the 3rd or 4th message, she drops Security Dating Site which of course needs your credit card no. and all your personal info to do a "background check" so they can be sure they're safe. My รค'$'$..

See what I did there?

Just send notes to women in whom you are interested and the issue solves itself, whostolemynickname.
