Yes, most definately. They let you message for free, so try it. Send hello's to 30 or 40, and you wont get one reply. Don't send "Wink''s" because they will send you automated messages to try to make you think she is there and active. Really she probable hasn't visited the site in over a month.

Hello Shompod A. Sorry for such a big delay in answering U , but i had written a review her already on ZOOSK. in the very left hand top corner U should see the word "more" with an arrow. Tap the word and it will take U to another set of reviews that aren't good. It's a continuation from the ones here now. Look for my name and U will see my review amoungst the other bad reviews. OK?? It is safe to say~~~STAY THE HELL AWAY!!

I don't know for sure. I did get some numbers from some people, but never actually met them. A couple were on Facebook, so they might be real people. It is just a fishy website and they keep your information even after you have closed your account. They still show you and your picture as active, if you don't go back in and disable your account manually. It's a waste of time and money, in my opinion.

Zoosk is definitely not a scam. Match is a pathetic site--didn't get 1 date there. Farmers Only requires both people to have full memberships to participate. Zoosk is just wonderful -- made many good friends there. The pics are good and Carousel is a great idea. Choose the winner, Zoosk!

I was on the site for years. There are so many women on this site who are fakes, frauds & scammers its a total waste of time. Some of the online dating sites are finally verifying accounts. It should have been done yrs ago. Lots of people don't join because its so full of trash..Zoosk is there to take your money & give no results,lol. They take your money & there is NO GUARANTEE. Ron

Maybe not a SCAM but a total waste of my time and money! I tried one dating site after another this past summer and all I found was scammers! I hate online dating and am NOT doing it anymore. Look somewhere else to find a girl.

It's a waste of money! The majority of female profiles are fake or expired. Save your money and use POF instead.

Yes in a different sense than the typical scam. You can't do much without paying and even then there are better sites that are free

Pretty much. Mostly full of $#*! from the top on down. The designers of this site understood meeting suitable dating partners is difficult as they age, especially when a person does work at a large company, hang out in bars or lives in a small town. With this in mind, finding an actual possibility involves buying coins to determine if they read your message, deleted your message, want to meet, blah, blah. I noticed many of the women had belonged to another dating site long ago they didn't have the faintest idea they were still on a site until I emailed them. Zoosk claims to take pride in having members that want to communicate uploading approved photographs. What a joke. Just for laughs I uploaded a photo of stapler as my primary photo. Sure as $#*!, there were 7 women that liked my profile and
wanted to meet during the next two days. I joined POF which is just about as bad. These people seem like scammers, sex addicts and con artists. So for me it'

No.

I met my previous girlfriend from Zoosk. We lived together for two years and for quite a while it was fantastic. She's a real person and signed up to find a partner and did.

It's not a scam at all. It is very poor though. The matches it tries to make are most often with people who live more than thirty miles away, even over a hundred miles away.

No it is not.

I met my current boyfriend and Oct will be 1 yr!

I would ask to Skype, if I needed to I could just delete them later.
