Seeking Arrangement and TC Logi Q, a background-screening company, reviewed 60,000 banned profiles to see what they have in common and found 28% were based in Nigeria, 23% in the Ukraine, and 21% in the Philippines.
We’re not saying every online dater from Nigeria, the Ukraine, the Philippines, or any other foreign country is a scammer, but you should keep an eye out, especially if international dating isn’t what you’re looking for.
Now, if you're a guy (and you know how much harder online dating is for men than women), that's music to your ears. I have sent out messages to 40 women and gotten 0 replies. So Zoosk is a place to come together and have someone take your money.

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.
So what you’ll end up getting is something that’s copied and pasted and that replaces your name with the last person they communicated with.
Did they mention anything from your profile or photos? If your answer is no, that’s cause for an eyebrow raise.
When someone uploads just one photo or a couple that are basically all the same (e.g., headshots), you’re not learning anything about them.
Real people with real dating profiles will upload a variety of photos to showcase their personality and hobbies — but fake people with fake profiles don’t want to take the chance of getting caught by uploading too many stolen photos. Sticking with the photo theme, alarms should be going off in your head if a profile has photos that look too perfect.
We all like doing that, so be on the lookout if they keep putting off details that make them unique.
Lying to someone online is easy because you’re not having to look them in the eye, but if you do it for long enough and to a lot of people, it’s going to catch up with you.
It's almost like being strong armed on a street, being taken by your ankles and having your head smacked against a sidewalk until every last nickel and dime bounces out of your pockets. I have been on this site on and off for a few years. You are better off trying to find someone at the grocery store. Are shown profiles of all women when I asked to receive profiles of a limited group. They couldn't even put more effort than that into making fake profiles to make it seem like there's actually girls on there.
Zoosk has layer after layer of ala carte "extra" charges that pop up AFTER you're charged for your subscription. I have only met two semi-legitimate people on here that I dated for some time. In the last month, I have been approached by many men. When I get a notification that says “she wants to meet you” and send a response, I never hear anything from the person. This site is a waste of time, money and should be banned! Also, they double the price, once our about to check out, with a hidden "activation fee".
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.
