Even before my profile was fully created I was having doubts.

Rip off.........boost members? wtf.......bad experience. Hard to chat with members. Need to pay more money to buy coins. Over charged by $25.00.
Beware of a guy by the name of Nathan van der beck claiming to be from Nashville and working in So Africa, I googled him and found him on facebook and living in Germany. The best is he wrote me asking for money to get out of So Africa.
Yeap they're scam. Wink auto response looks like you have a mail of course zoosk doesn't let you read. You subscribe and don't realize there's a activation fee of 24 bucks plus 19.99 monthly total of 45 bucks. Then you go and realized that you got scammed. You have no mail but some auto response from profiles. ..
IF YOUR A GUY JUST GO TO A MASSAGE PARLOR AND TAKE CARE OF JUNIOR. WHAT A CROCK OF BEANS!!! ACTUALLY -NO STARS. 99% OF THE WOMEN ARE JUST GOLD DIGGERS OR FAKE. AND THE REST CAN NEVER BE CONTACTED. I SENT MY NUMBER TO A WOMAN 3 TIMES BECAUSE I KEPT GETTING EMAILS TELLING ME SO & SO WANTS TO MEET OR CHAT. THEN THEY HAVE SOME COIN $#*! WHERE YOU HAVE TO PAY AGAIN. NOTHING BUT A SCAM. I TRIED FOR 4 DAYS THEN DEMANDED A REFUND WHICH THEY REFUNDED FULL AMOUNT.
I work for ZOOSK and I can guarantee you it is a scam. For those of you thinking of joining, please do not waste your money or put your profile on there. They will distribute your information from your profile to other sites which are even lower on the scam scale. POF is a free site that isn't too bad. I would suggest you go there. If there was a rating of zero stars I would pick that.
RIPOFF, DATING SITE CON. I was lazy & signed up without first checking online reviews. What a waste of time. Instantly got dozens of views, winks and whatever. "So and so wants to meet you".. bla bla. Then of course discovered I can't contact "members" without paying up front. LOL obvious scam is obvious. Fake member profiles put up by staff. Bots spam out the lies to sucker you in. They should be sued and shut down for unethical business practices! Reporting to the BBB...
I have not used this site in years; recently Zoosk sent a post to my lady saying I like Zoosk; she has sence left me; this is not a dating site, it's a relationship destruction site. considering suing Zoosk and facebook
1st off, Zoosk scams you with people that are not real members, 2nd they keep pulling back on your search access attempting to sell you up more and more. They are very deceitful, 3rd they are gathering your information including facial scans for
the NSA to use against you. Also beware of OkCupid doing the same, along with most of the other dating sites, Myspace, Facebook especially, Twitter, Google, and other social sites working for the Socialist Communist Regime and our Dictator n Chief.
The other reviews I read say it all. Zoosk wants more money to buy coins to access features that should be included and in my opinion are implied to be. Don't waste your time and money here. Match.com was much better. I happen to think that most of the profiles are dormant. Just left overs of people that gave up on this pathetic rip off!
Paid for a subscription only to learn that I needed to spend more money on "coins" to access who wanted to meet me. Scam. Stick to pof.com
Honestly this site is a joke because I had some really creepy guys sending me messages and some of them were way younger or way older than my age and it seems that half of them also are looking for casual things which is what tells a lot of women they're seeking something of a sexual nature and not everyone is wanting to just meet people for sexual encounters. If that's the case go and set up a profile on Adultfriendfinder.com since that's where you can meet those for booty calls and god knows what. Then they want you to pay an outrageous fee(plus additional money just to activate your membership) for a membership. I saw a couple potential guys, but one was five years younger with a kid and the other was 8 years older with a kid. They seem to emphasize a lot of single parents which most arent even married most of them have baby mamas all over the place. How are any of these men going to be taken seriously if they present themselves like this? Customer service is a joke you think you're talking to an american.....you're not I called them and some woman with an Indian accent answered the call and they're not helpful at all. You have no activation fee with EHarmony or Match.com just a simple membership fee that fits your budget. Im doing a trial and its a waste of time most of the guys on there have abandoned their profiles without officially deleting them so you're emailing dead and fake profiles. I honestly believe that Zoosk is deliberately creating profiles to get people to sign up dont waste your time. Tell anyone who will listen to go sign up for legitimate sites like EHarmony, Match.com, and Our Time(if you're 50+) at least you know they're for real and dont create profiles to draw people in.
I really don't like this website or application because man, you have to constatly pay for the service and the price is annoying, the services should be free. Allow everyone to socialize without any issues or problems.
I just joined today and I am already disgusted with Zoosk!.There are unforseen charges. You cannot even see if someone has read your message without paying More $$$ I am deleting my subscription today after reading all of these other negative reviews and demanding that my credit card NOT be charged!!!
This site is totally $#*!ed. Pay your bucks but choose not to post a photo and you cant contact anyone. Browse photos without actually clicking on them and magically they all seem to view you. Type in distance from home to browse and they will add 100s of kilometres more. Delete people who have viewed you and they come back to haunt you. Send someone a message and then they want more $#*!ing money to allow you to see if they replied. So I am paid up but cant message anyone freely without buying $#*!ing coins or some bull$#*!...thanks for the scam zoosk, ya pack of $#*!heads!!!
Ive dealt with dating websites before, and the way this one has females messaging you one liners and the only way you can respond is by paying money is a scam. No actual woman on a dating site sends a one liner. Fraud.
I wish I had of seen these reviews before I paid my money on this site. From day one it is an atrocity and absolute rip off.
The site appears to have members, but after you pay you realise they are just non paying browsers, with Zoosk using me as an ''attraction for some 500 people are reading my profile in the first few days to join, , but none of them are members , Messages from 20 year olds to 70 year olds are disturbing, the site tries to match me up with anything and everything that is in contrast to my requests, it wants you to accept conversations (for more money) with people you know nothing of except the image.
I have been taken for a ride
Horrible! I deactivated my account weeks ago only to find out it is still active and I had 100 messages!!!! I just checked my old email to find out it was back up! I took all the pics off too! I just changed the name to deactivated account! How the hell can they still use it when I took it down?!
Absolutely the worst dating site ever.
They charge a fortune just to access and then charge
more to communicate with anyone on the site.
It is fifty dollars for three months which is automatically
renewed. They will not prorate when if you want to quit.
No one should join Zoosk. Any dating site is better.
Zoosk is the most questionable dating website I have ever used. I honestly don't know if the people on the site even exist. The website tells me I have a slew of "connections" but I don't know where they came from because I didn't create them. It seems like the website sends automatic responses to people on my behalf without my permission. I have not subscribed but used the site for free to get a feel for its "usability". I am grateful that I did not bother to waste my money on what seems like a hoax. Many other reputable dating websites exist - Zoosk is a joke - just a place to fool around without any real results.
I shut this site down (I thought) last year. I am now in a 9 month relationship ... well, guess what? A friend of his saw my profile on this site, and not only that, apparently I RESPONDED to his profile with a "Thanks for the Wink" comment!! I haven't been on the site since last May, but apparently automated messages from me are being sent!! I think I finally shut it down by going through a two step process. We shall see. DO NOT USE THIS SITE!!!!
STAY AWAYYY!!!!!!!!!!! NO GOOD!!!!!! AND THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY DON'T REMOVE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION OR DELETE I TRY AND SAY I CANNOT REMOVE, THEN I CALL SUPPORT THEY SAY THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE IS REPLACE BY ANOTHER CREDIT CARD! WHAT I'M CALLING BANK OF AMERICA TO REPLACE MY CARD AND BEWARE OF THIS SCAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Zoosk is the WORST dating site EVER!! What a rip-off!! DO NOT and I repeat, DO NOT waste you time and money by joining this site!!
I'd actually like to rate it a NEGATIVE 10, although since that's not an option, I'm giving it a 1. What a FAKE FAKE FAKE site! SOOO PATHETIC!!!! I received many many chat requests daily even though my profile said I can't chat at the site (I never downloaded their chat software, didn't trust having their JUNK on my computer). I also received tons of email contacts, many telling me how cute &/or beautiful I was, even though I had ZERO photos posted in my profile. Then when I tried to edit my profile & mention what a FAKE site it was, they wouldn't post my changes. LOL. I can only hope that no one is ever fooled into paying Zoosk a single penny in hopes to find love .... that would be just terrible!!!
Your going to get ripped off..I have messaged almost 60 woman and got 0 real responses. I feel like I'm the only one "real" on there.Wish I saw this website before subscribing to the scam.
What a scam, you get messages from people that aren't there, a lot of fake profiles of people from other countries. It does not properly indicate what state your matches live and the distances are absolutely wrong. It is intentionally misleading that makes you think that that person is much closer than that actually are so that you select them. Which generally costs more. Perhaps if i had a helicopter or a duck boat iy would be a bit more accurate. If you happen to figure it out the game and you complain they will cancel your membership. Additionally they don't tell you that messages and mutual matches can just disappear after only 30 days. For me they made it seem as if I was having a technical problem until it happened again and again my messages my matches my connections all gone. I was I paid for that. Its like buying groceries and not even getting them to your car. They say well you spent the coins so now you got to go back into the grocery store and spend more. What a scam
This site is all about money. Paid $70 thinking that would give me access to all the women on this site, but that's wrong. You get notifications that someone wants to meet and all you have to determine yes, maybe, or no is a thumbnail pic age, and city. If you select yes or maybe, you get a message stating it's mutual and all you have to do is BUY "coins" to communicate. You can't search for the person by site ID and if you try by searching on age and less than 50 miles, you'll quickly find out the search criteria won't work and you'll get people from all over the country....... If I could rate this site a zero I would....... STAY AWAY
This site is completely pointless. Upon searching for members with in "50 miles" most of them were thousands of miles away. There are a lot of free dating sites that offer a LOT more functionality and better ease of use. $70+ just to send someone a message? No thanks. I knew women were expensive, but damn! ;) I've met plenty of new friends on the sites I already have. This site must be meant for the really desperate. I wouldn't want to meet anyone that feels the need to use this site. I was only on this site for 15 minutes and instantly knew it was complete garbage.
Complete scam. Paid up 1 month subscription to find out there is an additional fee on top. After a few days I lost ability to send messages unless I gave them my phone number which I wasn't going to do cause by then I decided I don't trust them. Ended up cancelling my visa card cause I don't trust them at all.
I was on Zoosk for 5 months and attempted to chat with over 400 women and only 1 ever responded. Now they won't let me change my profile to tell it how it is on there. I'm sure they have all the things wrong with this site covered under their Terms of Agreement. Don't join Zoosk! Total scam!
Many of the women are 'fake'. I've also noticed that a so called chat begins, and then silence. No more response. I wish I had my monthly fee back. At least I can quit at the end of this month which I surely will.
It is a scam. Stupid me actually paid for a membership! There are no really people on there as far as I an concerned! The ones that add you to chat do not respond! I have never received one message back from anyone! I tried to delete all the people that had viewed my profile, within 5 second they have viewed it again! It is total BS.. I do believe the administrators have all this set up to make you believe someone may be interested in yourself! It is all about Zoosk making money, not anyone meeting someone! I won't rate this site, because it doesn't deserve a rating!
This site is a pathetic waste of time. It is nothing but a money grab. The only person I was able to communicate with sent me her personal e-mail, said she lived in Kelowna on her profile, and actually lived in Russia. Every message sent to them for assistance was ignored. Every attempt at changing parts of my profile was denied. The people that run this site are as big of thieves as the con artist from Russia. FU Zoosk.
horrible! you need coins to receive messages from your matches! what the hell is this? I am already paying a premium for a month. why I have to pay for the basic features again. f....k this website. never again.
I would rate it a zero..stupid little games to earn or buy coins...can't view mutals if don't have coins!!
Total scam. Men have to pay to even read the message women sent. Woman can not only read for free, but also reply for free once. So most woman profiles are free on this site. The women who messaged me just disappeared soon after. Most profile seems to be inactive or don't even have pictures. Stay away!
Zoosk is the WORST dating site I have EVER encountered. To be fair, I understand that a business needs to make money. I get that, but to be so greedy so as to have these friggin MICRO TRANSACTIONS? That is ridiculous! I feel like I'm being nickled and dimed to death on there. Now, about their members. For some odd reason, Zoosk has some of the ugliest and dumbest people I have seen on any website. I know Zoosk doesn't have control over this, but why does this site seem to attract so many 'uglies?'
this site is just junk they send fake messages and all ways want money for any thing its just a giant scam 90% of the time the users don't really exist or so it seems I had 176 so called people view my profile and none of the girls replied I stayed as a free member hahaha free my ass lolz I recommend never signing up for this wacky site go to plenty of fish instead zoosk is trash
Sends out fake messages to you..always good looking and within 10 to 15 miles. i alway reply and give them an email to answer..they never do. I payed with paypal and put my fee in dispute. Zoosk provided no emails for help or discloses that you have to buy "coins" to meet people close by for the most part.
I supposedly had 254 people view my profile....not one person ever responded good or bad....so i chat requested all 254 members not one ever answered good or bad and I resent the messages 3 times.for a total of 750 messages ...hat a surprize...nothing ...nothing good nothiing bad....so I than randomly sent 400 more chat request to anyone under 50 and less than 200lbs saying even if ur not interested simply respond no thanks.... nothing.... nothing good nothing bad...the law of numbers says someone should have respond something. it is computer generated scams and lies just to get you to signup...i'm not old... ugly or wrote anything crude in my profile....the problem is you simply get no responce...no matter what you try ....nothing....but the same time you are sending a chat request .they are supposedly reading ur profile it's all BS
Zoosk is unbelievably useless; you won't meet a person there unless you really don't care who it is. Stay away and don't let paid (?) reviewers get you lured into this scam.
Zoosk got my information without my knowledge. Then random men started emailing me. I never joined this site.
I was just curious about the website, so filled out a little info and before I knew it, I was a member, but I didn't want to subscribe until I investigated a little more. I received a few messages, but you can't respond unless you pay.....and when they show you pics of people and ask if you want to meet, you have to respond to earn "coins" or buy the coins to be able to view some messages or reply to them. I can't figure out how to delete my profile, so I just removed my pics and info.....I got even MORE responses after I did this, most of them way too young and too far away. This is without a doubt the stupidest dating site ever! Wish I could give it a minus 5 stars! (Since I can't delete, I have "hidden" my profile....anxious to see how many matches I get that way, LOL)
Agree with "total ripoff". It looks like they are conning facebook users into copying their info over into the zoosk database, then serving them up as "profiles". The messaging software seems to be broken, doesn't save much message history either. They also try to get you to pay extra (coins) even if you are a paid premium member. If you've been a victim of this site, don't give up! There are plenty of fish ;-) that one seems to be the real deal, although I've heard good things about okcupid, too, I dunno.
Absolute rip off.They tell you so and so is interested,you have to buy coins to contact the person,and 10 out of 10 does not respond.Zoosk makes up that someone is interested in you.Total scam.0 stars.
You pay your subscription and are then expected to play games to gain coins to be able to see mutual matches who have both said they wish to meet, check if mails read etc. When you play these games you have to say if you wish to meet someone on purely a photo & age - no idea where they live or anything else. Don't know about you, but there is more to wanting to meet someone than a poor picture and age in my opinion! I wouldn't waste your time as many of profiles state how difficult site is & give FB info etc. That says it all....
I thought I had met a great guy online, but it turned out to be a catfish and a phishing attempt for money. His name on the site is: goodguydr, and he gave his real name as Gaufrid Arndt, 41, Rancho Santa Fe, CA. He states in his profile, he is a Christian, and tells a sob story about his ex taking his five-year-old girl away and that is why he moved to the United States, to get a new start. He claims he is a civil engineer, and two days after we started communicating online, he says he has an overseas job in Spain for six weeks. At first, everything was going well with his job, and that he may come back December 7. Then, a week or so later, he says his tourist ticket is on December 14. He complains of the cold weather in Spain and says he misses me. States he has a condo in Sarasota, Florida - but there are no property records of the purchase. He asked me to call him in Spain. We talked a little more than a week. The last few days, he started to hint at work difficulties, that there was not enough money, that he needed $2000 from his account in Florida. But he didn't trust his friends, and he has no family.
I was going to send him a handwritten letter but he refused to give me his hotel or his home address in Florida. After that, I think he felt he "hooked" me, and started to ask if I could ask others for money for him. Then he asked me directly, saying he is normally a very proud man, and it hurts to beg.
I blocked his numbers so he can't call me anymore. Asking for money is such a red flag. I hope no other woman falls for this scheme. He did what other dating scam websites said, he did direct me to start chatting on Yahoo Messenger instead of Zoosk.
He called me from a different number a few days ago. First, buttering me up, then the next day, pretending to be angry at my Zoosk review. I took it down, still wanting to believe this fantasy. But I've reposted it to warn others of this fake. And I blocked his number again.
I have talked to others, and they have had similar experiences. A Jamaican man living in Philadelphia, and then when my friend wanted to meet, he hesitated and made excuses. He, too, switched her to chatting on Yahoo Messenger.
Overall, it seems the quality of profiles are less than a couple free sites. Oh, and Zoosk will only take down a profile if there is something overtly offensive. Otherwise, they have to keep it posted. I had some difficulty unsubscribing from the website also. I had to call them directly to untangle the auto-renew.
the site is obviously a scam and here's why.
- most of the profiles contain 1 photo and no descriptive information requiring a user to type in anything.
- as far as the women go, once you do a search, you will most likely get some "attractive" results right off the bat. this doesn't tend to happen on other dating site sorry. if you wink at one of them, you will most likely get an email response within the hour. once you try and read the email response, you will be asked for money.
- right after you setup your account, you will start to notice your view count and winks go up, even if you only put up 1 photo and didn't type anything into your profile. i don't care how unattractive you think you are, this will most likely happen.
- your search results will contain a lot of people outside your search radius and age range.
i could keep going, but i "deactivated" my account right away. there is no "delete" profile option which is a little concerning.
I just subscribe recently for a month on this site. I used it for about a day and was already having trouble viewing my messages. It wanted me to pay extra just to view it or to see someone who might be interested in me. I e-mailed customer service of my problem and they deleted me from my subscription!!! Tried to contact them again and again either by phone (number don't work) or the person emailing me back is a robot. Never refunded my money...REally pissed about it still. WORST DATING SITE.
I was charged double what I agreed to after they charged a $25 "first time activation fee." I had too much going on at the time to realize what had happened and didn't feel like fighting it. So I had a very, very expensive one month subscription. Whic was so stoo-pid it was almost funny, even it wasn't so stupid and creepy. Zoosk's profile standards are as low as their business ethics--anybody can set up a profile with almost no information. I would regularly get matches from people with just a picture who were apparently illiterate. Also, after the exorbitant sign up fee, they kept trying to sell me "coins" to see matches, or to send virtual roses, etc. Really, this site is so idiotic, it's funny--as long as you haven't paid.
I subscribed, and had fun with the site. My issue with the site is that I never authorized automatic renewal of coins. My account filled up with coins several times when my account got down to 5- 10 coins. I received zero e-mail notifications of being billed for coin renewals at $19.95 a piece, so I assumed that the site was filling my coins as a promotional to keep people active with the site. I received a credit card bill with 6 charges of $19.95 and called them to dispute never being notified that I had been billed. I spoke with a rep and then a manager. The best they were willing to do was credit me back for 2 of the $19.95 charges. This site is clearly a scam. They may have fine print to cover themselves legally, but the site is an absolute fraud that preys upon lonely hearts. Stear clear of Zoosk.
