Zoosk, found online at Zoosk.com, is a dating site which says that it helps people date smarter using their own unique technology and is available in more than 80 countries and 25 languages.
How Does It Work?
Like other dating websites, Zoosk allows members to sign up and create a profile completely for free. But as you start looking around and interacting with other members, Zoosk's Behavioral Matchmaking will "learn" about you and begin pairing you with singles you are likely to be mutually attracted to.
Once you want to begin actually speaking with other members of the site, you will need to upgrade to a paid membership.
Though Zoosk does not publish its upgraded membership fees, they are reported on other websites as being $29.95 per month, for a month-to-month subscription, $19.98 a month, billed in one lump sum of $59.95 for three months, and $12.49 a month, billed all at once for $74.95 for a six month subscription. All subscription plans automatic renew unless you cancel in advance of the new billing cycle.
Currently Zoosk offers mobile applications for both Android and iOS operating platforms.
Since this service is offered with a pay per month plan, as well as all other shipment plans needing to be paid in advance, their Terms and Conditions clearly states that all charges and fees are non-refundable.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 888-939-6675, by email at Support@Zoosk.com, or by submitting them directly to their website.
Unfortunately Zoosk has many mixed reviews with unhappy customers complaining that they believe this site sets up fake profiles and provides fake interactions, but there is nothing in their Terms and Conditions which supports these accusations.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other online dating sites available out there, some of which are straightforward traditional sites like Match.com and eHarmony.com, while others are more targeted towards specific niches, like ChristianMingle.com.

Zoosk is a scam.....
It cost $29.95 to join this site, but when one is purchasing the membership, this site hits you with
an activation fee of $24.95. If you go through paypal, then you don't have to pay for the activation
fee. The search feature has been crippled lately and the grid view is no longer available. That
means that one has to click next on every member from the search results. The carousel feature is a
joke. When a member wants to meet you and you agree, then to be able to contact this person, you
have to purchase coins and they are rather expensive. Some profiles on this site are fake, when
contacting them via the wink, an email is sent back to you from the fake profile stating"thanks for
the wink, why not send me a real email telling me more about you". I have complained to customer
service about the limited search feature and they have done nothing about it.
WHY AM LEAVING ZOOSK
It's because I think even meeting new people and getting to know the people made me change my life
DO NOT DO THIS SITE TERRIBLE I GOT SCAMMED
I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH IDENTITY THEFT THROUGH TALKING TO SOMEONE ON THIS SITE.
HAS BEEN A HEADACHE FOR DAYS NOW.
I WENT BACK TO THE SITE TO SEE IF IT WAS CANCELLED AND MY PROFILE REMOVED, IT WAS AT FIRST CANCELLED, WHEN I RETURNED THE PROFILE WAS STILL UP AND ACCIDENTALLY HIT THE RENEW, CALLED IMMEDIATELY TO EXPLAIN I WANTED MY PROFILE REMOVED, AND CANCELLED AGAIN, AND STILL GOING THROUGH HEADACHE FROM THIS SITE....DIRTBAGS ON HERE. ONE MAN WANTED TO BRING HIS DAUGHTER OF 21 ON A DATE, FOR FOOT FETISH ETC.
JUST TERRIBLE...DO NOT DO THIS SITE...IF THERE WAS A ---------------MILLION NEGATIVES I WOULD PUT THAT.

pof, okcupid and even badoo is better
I found my husband on zoosk
I'm so grateful for zoosk I found my soon to be hhusband on this site we will be together 1 year on January 25 2015. I couldn't be any happier I love more than anything I'm from Tennessee and he is from Texas
thank you Zoosk
I would like to thank you Zoosk for helping me find my boyfriend.
At the time when we first contacted each other, we were both members so both of us could send and reply emails. I found this was essential, otherwise our story wouldn't have been unfolded nicely as it is now.
Would strongly recommend people here, to invest a little bit to be a member, and see whether it would help. For me, it did make a change in life.
Last but not the least, I would like to give my best wishes to everyone here, wish you would find your match one in the new year! Never give it up. I always told myself, someone must be there waiting for me.
I wish I could give it no stars. As a PAID subscriber, I could send messages to women I was interested in, BUT...unless they were also paid subscribers, they couldn't read them!! In what universe is that reasonable? Not only that, but the system was 'liking' people and adding people to my chat requests that I never saw and maxing out my daily "40" coins when I never even made it near 40 in a day.
Complete and utter scam.
I joined Zoosk for 6 months and paid $99.00. On top of that you have to buy coins to meet other people who r not even paid members. A lot r fake profiles just to make money off of u. Beware. Check out Match.com. I'm giving a heads up to everyone to boo Zoosk!
what can i say is good
Em well the site is designed by a child these coins you pay are too expensive never bought any though. Most females on this site were ugly. Everytime i clicked save on my profile and editing then refreshed all text disappeared. Overall i just hate the website i actually deleted my profile because of how bad the website. In my opinion zoosk is nothing but a waste of time.
Horrible dating Site
This site is a major scam. The user interface is so childish and hard to use and the members seem like seed members. They were either paid given free membership to make it look legitimate.
Kiss A Lot of Frogs to Find a Prince
I have been on various dating sites over the past two years, varying costs/membership fees. Match.com after a year I only met one person who was a poor match. mate1 was full of frauds who were over the top expressing their love for me, told a story of woe (widower due to cancer or some tragedy or cheated on), then needing money to come visit. AYI suggested matches often not in my own province. I was pleasantly surprised to find someone local and a great match after being on Zoosk for only a week. We've been seeing one another nearly every day since we first met and seem to be on the same page in so many ways. It feels like we've known each other a lot longer. In short, keep looking. Relationships take work whether it's getting one or keeping one. One has to kiss a lot of frogs no matter what site you're looking on, before finding a prince. Good luck!
I was maybe one of the few real girls on zoosk!
And maybe this is why all the men were very rough with me. I didn't find anybody worthy of my time: horrible site!
Fake profiles, pushed profiles, and a few real profiles, and what seem to be a few professional professional profiles.
No responses despite being fairly assertive.
the good and the bad
To start off, I will just tell you that I am probably one of the lucky ones that did find love on zoosk. I have to say that this site is not very user friendly. A lot of the profiles are fake but there are some real ones. Like most of the comments on here, the creators of zoosk are more interested in the money than actually helping you find true love. The fact that I did find a beautiful woman on this site was nothing short of a miracle. When I was searching for dating site, I searched independent reviews of all the sites but I think that the ones that gave this site good review are actually being payed by the site. After 6 months of actually examining this site and trying different things, my feelings is that this site is not worth spending your money on. My finding love was not really due to the site. It was being at the right place at the right time. Because if I hadn't answered her when she sent me a wink, there is no way that I could have found her again even if you know her profile name. A word to the wise.... " A Zoosk Member " = fake profile.
Don't waste your time on Zoosk... ANY dating site is better than this!
I am trying to figure out how to get OFF this crappy Zoosk site!
! Unless you want to pay lots of money you cannot meet anyone and need to buy "coins" to read or reply to messages, look at whole profiles or pics or accept chats... for 3 days I have tried posting "I am leaving Zoosk so please do not message me or waste your money trying to chat with me because I can't even see your messages" and whoever is approving ads deletes ALL that despite the fact it does not violate any written Zoosk rules...
In other word you have no right to free speech and you can't even say in your own profile you are leaving without that being deleted for no reason! I have met NOBODY here not even chatted to one in over 3 months... save your efforts for a site like POF, OKCupid or Meetme.com at least you have a chance there... once I leave Zoosk I will never waste my time there again!
IS ZOOSK DATING SITE FRAUDULENT?
Is this site fraudulent? I think so. If so can I get my money back from Facebook who allow them access.
Apparently myriads of women have agreed to meet me but to access them or their profile, I have to pay again. I suggest that not many people will like to do this and of course they lose their money. The question then is "Is ZOOSK offering the goods for which I have paid?" I suspect not and should FACEBOOK allow them advertising space and even allow them to access my email address after I made the initial contact even before subscribing
Preys on the vulnerable
I am a recently widowed and just wanted to get out a little, not really expecting the next "love of my life" and not really wanting that just yet. I was just looking. Next thing, during one of my searches, a photo of this absolutely great looking guy sitting at a desk looking all professional comes up with a dating profile that any woman would think was perfect. Then when I received a "chat request" from him, well, I thought "could I be this lucky twice?" because my mate who had passed was the BEST! I immediately went to "chat" with this match, but then the subscription window came up. Thinking that I had to do this in order to "chat" with Mr. Perfect (LOL), I signed up for one month and sent him a message. I received NO RESPONSE (!?). Now, he sent the chat request, not me. But as soon as I PAID I got no response. Sent another message -- still no response. Go figure! I then saw on a review site that Zoosk sometimes uses employees as FAKE matches with fake profiles (most of whom are sitting at desks or beside a computer in an office setting) to entice someone to pay to chat!! I then sent a message to him to let him know I was on to that. HE ANSWERED THAT MESSAGE!!! He said that if he said it on his profile it was true. Yea. right. STAY AWAY FROM ZOOSK! They should be ashamed of themselves for hurting vulnerable people.
Zoosk is totally a scam
I don't want to talk too much about my feeling, I just point out the fact.
1.The biggest lie on the world. free? It is not free!!
Yes, it is free to sign up and browser the site. But if you want any communicate actions with someone, its all have you to pay!
Even have to pay just for reading a message from someone!
2. As I said in point1, You need to pay for send more than 1 message and need to pay for read more than like 20 characters message.NOT ONLY THIS. There are tons of fake profile and bots messaging you.
How can I(you) stand on this kind of shit? This is totally a scamming.
I don't even know why this company is still alive?
Is it really legal? Like scamming and fooling people officially...
3.Also about the fees. Too expensive for get a chance to have dating.
4.Worst custom service. Bots do it.
100% not free,zoosk is a lie itself.Everything you have to pay.
Even you paid, really bad service.
If you want to make a successful dating, both of you have to paid.
If one of you no pay, never success.
End of story..
