POF is down because of technical difficulties and the site currently remains in maintenance mode. There are no advancements on when it will return to normal functionality.
Why did they delete POF?
In the most literal sense – if youre using Plenty of Fish to try and scam, spam, or impersonate someone else, your account will be deleted. This goes for creating multiple accounts as well, or trying to access or use an account that isnt yours.
Does Plenty of Fish still work?
VERDICT: If youre in an area with a small pool of singles or you cant afford to pay for a dating site subscription, POF is definitely a good option for you. Thats one of the things people love about POF – if you dont want to pay for an upgrade, its still a very useable, effective dating site.
