The internet makes many everyday tasks faster and more convenient, like shopping and banking, but it's important to be safe and responsible online.
Scammers use the internet to try to trick you into sending them money or your personal information.
I wish I never got on this website, I will continue to write reviews for this because people have to know not to get involved with this website. Zoosk ignores data points and bombards you with profiles of potential matches 100 miles away, always older than you, often outside your other key filters. You'll think they're obsessed with you but never message you. These may be ghost profiles Zoosk kept from people who previously subscribed and in some cases, a real person may have swiped your photos for a tenth of a second, and pinged Zoosk, which then auto tags you and creates a phony "like" or "connection". Spammy, fake, ** and scam profiles run amok on Zoosk and Zoosk is complicit at best in not enforcing reported fake profiles. Others seemed real but were too far away, smokers (which I said I did not want), or some other mismatch.
If you are a man in your 40s or 50s and you're "pinged" by a hot looking woman in her 30s, chances are it's either a scam artist from Ghana, or an Eastern European cam girl looking to rip off credit card numbers. Zoosk shakes you down and nickel dimes you to death. Bring back the good old days of people getting introduced by friends and people actually putting themselves out there to approach people in person when interested! After having put in the requisite search time, and opening with an individual greeting, I received a total of only 8 responses..three of those were hurtful and rude.
You won't build any connection because Zoosk just wants your money. I wasted a few hundred dollars off and on over two years. I agree with the other reviews that Zoosk has a lot of fake profiles and low quality matches.
You will need to contact your credit card company directly to notify them if you are disputing unauthorized charges on your card from scammers, or if you suspect your credit card number has been compromised.Ten bucks per month to guarantee she can read and reply to your message. To send "gifts", cute little icons to hope you get noticed. I say semi-legitimate because while most of their profiles were accurate, they both lied about their age and exaggerated and/or their profiles were inaccurate about other items. Some that I might have been interested in turned out to be scammers, yes, there is a way to determine this. And 50% of the men who have contacted me claim they are widowed. Yesterday I WAS approached by a handsome, interesting man from Newport. If I mention in a response to a person that I doubt the authenticity of Zoosk; that person disappears from my connections. They, as well as all other online dating should be investigated. The site will sent me messages, supposedly from other users, to my email. I was happy with the dating site when I was a member. Besides that, their search filters and settings are crap. You're probably sending the "gift" to a Zoosk created false or old profile of a woman who USED to be on Zoosk ten years ago, or Zoosk purchased the pictures and data from other scammy dating sites. Almost all of the female profiles show pictures that are obviously ten, fifteen or twenty years old evident by the backgrounds, clothing styles, and vehicles from the selfies women take, in their 2002 Nissan, with turtle shell sunglasses covering two thirds of their faces. They're ALWAYS older than their listed age, and I don't mean by a year or two; it's more like...a DECADE or two! when you finally do connect with a real woman, who lives within a 20 mile radius of you, she's ALWAYS a PLAYER who is married, with kids at home, and is scouting around for free drinks, a sugar daddy, a hook-up while hubby is out shuttling around the kids to baseball, soccer and hope they don't show up at the same restaurant she told you to meet her at (happened to me! Seriously, you're better off making small talk with seemingly single women in the produce aisle about the price of broccoli, going to a church social, or taking an adult Ed class like cooking. My sympathies to those where this was actually the case. Oh yes, until he messed up and told me he was from Seattle. I would like to get into their organization as a spy to see how they manipulate people. What I am unhappy with are the text messages that say this person or that person is interested in me. Obviously, Zoosk did not delete my profile or is sending fake information in the hopes that I will re-open my account. Notify them if you are disputing unauthorized charges or if you suspect your credit card number has been compromised.Take these actions before browsing or shopping for products and services online: Scammers use a variety of methods to try to steal your personal and financial information.
