Adult FriendFinder has been accused of committing systematic billing fraud. According to the complaints filed, the company has a practice of continuing to bill customers even after they have cancelled their service. Former employees of the company have claimed that this is their standard policy and not the result of errors. These employees have stated that the majority of customers do not notice the charges for many months.[better source needed] As of October 2014, hundreds of civil cases have been filed against the company and a criminal indictment was made by the Federal Trade Commission against the company. In 2007, Adult FriendFinder settled with the Federal Trade Commission over allegations that the company had used malware to generate explicit pop-up ads for the service on computers without user consent.
On November 13, 2016, it was reported that a database of usernames, e-mails, and passwords had been breached and leaked from Adult FriendFinder and other FriendFinder Networks websites. The breach included 300 million Adult FriendFinder user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been "deleted". The passwords had not been encrypted at all, or encrypted with the obsolete and insecure SHA-1.
You also have a few people who try to put a party together for their local bar and a Call it a mixer for POF people however it’s a joke and 90% of the time it’s a sausage fest let me give me the first big reason why you put it in the slums of the city pub or a bar that has no class at all is it going to attract classy upscale nicer people people don’t want to go somewhere park the car and worry about it being broken into just to try to meet someone that you’ve never met before it isn’t worth the risk also you should have some kind a real program in there where people have to upgrade your profile at least monthly so we’re not having pictures from 10 years ago when they first joined this is just the beginning of My complaints as I’ve said in many of my messages I’ve sent to you to get people kicked off the site or even block them you should be paying me to help educate you on making your profile a true wonderful place to meet people because it’s actually more like a swap with all the fake profiles and the scamming that you yourself do as a company POF you should be ashamed of yourself
Headquartered in sunny Campbell, California, our offices are modern, casual and, like our people, focused on efficiently meeting our goals. The perks at FriendFinder Networks are off the charts, including company paid benefits, 5% retirement match, paid vacation, paid gym membership and tuition reimbursement, just to name a few.

Obligatory sentimental preamble (and I don’t care if it gets me downvoted): As soon as I received the A2A notification from Darren Johnson on my phone, my heart dropped… and as soon as I clicked on the link and saw that this was, in fact true, I felt some kind of activity in my tear ducts. I wasn’t quite on the verge of tears. But like, 15% of the way to being on the verge? I haven’t been on Craigslist personals in years. However, I met my first love on Craigslist personals - and the way in which meeting someone on Craigslist is just so laughable to most people has always been somewhat of a running joke between us.
