WARNING - VIDEO CHAT SCAMPage 1 of 1    
WARNING: VIDEO CHAT SCAM: You may be contacted by a user with very attractive photos and very little info in their profile (First Clue). They will ask if you have tried the new "Video Chat" feature which is a great way to get to know you. They will ask for your email, (Second Clue) then send you a request to join (They say the request is from POF but it's a gmail address), (Third Clue) There is a link the asks you to complete a form and give your credit card number. (Last Clue... by now you should be out!) THIS IS A SCAM. Please be careful out there.

WARNING - VIDEO CHAT SCAM
Posted: 6/11/2018 6:14:22 AM
I just joined the site on Thursday and fell prey within a couple of hours to the exact scam you are describing. Being new to the site and being naive, yes I fell for it. The scammer attempted a $40 charge. I contacted my bank immediately as I saw this wasn’t on the “up and up”. Beware: especially newcomers that there is no video chat option available regardless of what some other dating candidate tells you. The bank disabled my debit card and now I wait a week to receive a new one. This post was helpful in discerning fact from fiction, thank you!

It would appear every message I have gotten FROM someone has been a scam. I just got the video chat one, as well.
