Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

When I came to this site (POF),
there is a banner for FreeLotto,
saying you just won for being the Xth visitor
which is a scam, some sort of fraud!
DO NOTclick or reply to this!
Apparently they will try to lure you
into their bogus monthly draws.
How does a scam operation
as this appear on this site?
Especially since POF warns
of such activity?

It is clearly written on the site:
" is not responsible for the contents of these messages.
If a "User" requests money on this site it's a scam, and you should report it here
along with any other type of scam/spam."?
Are "Users" suspected but advertisers aren't?
"reported in the paper awhile back."
Which Paper would that be?

advertisement is paid for, thats where the income comes from, hence they are exempt from rules on advertising, those rules only affect the fishies who populate the pond.

Seriously though, anny banner that says "you are a winner", "you have viruses/spyware" or any other stuff like that is a scam.

weren't you around when the monkey banners existed? "punch the monkey and win!!! wheee*
