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 [email protected], 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.

Logged on and set up a profile for free and within minutes receiced a wink and request to chat. Of course I paid 25.00 to subscribe for a month then found out there was an additional 25.00 activation fee and ok went ahead and paid that too... what a fool I was. Get winks and chat request from men not close to my search criteria and get "zoosks scientific matches" on a daily basis... don't know what science they used but it doesn't come close to common sense. Zoosk zucks... don't let them suck u in!
This dating site sucks! I am attractive and get the grossest creepy men hitting on me. It must be the website for old degenerate non-educated idiot men. I closed my account because I was tired of creepy assholes talking to me-old enough to be my father. Don't waste your $ on this-what a joke and scam!
My story is going to be hard to believe though I swear its true.
I became a member last night and I spent the f...ing premium membership for a month. I spent a lot of time finding people and winking them. A few replied automatically with their emails. None of them replied after I sent them an email or an IM not even those members which seemed to be online on the zoosk. I was reading the reviews today and I was about to close my account that I got an IM in my Yahoo. In her profile she had smoking hot pictures and apparently from Sacramento. After we started chatting she said she is from Ghana. I went back to check her profile, but she had closed it. After that all of her questions and all of her answers were cliché. I asked what sports do you like and she answered that she is family oriented, caring, outgoing and all that crap. I asked so what about me and you being so far, she replied yeah I have a good sense of humor and shit like that . You may not believe it, but even in Yahoo Messenger someone was copying and pasting other peoples answers without looking at the questions. Unbelievable!
I 'clicked' a link in a e-mail sent from my trusty friend. My nightmare startes from there.....
This company ( Zoosk) sent the similar e-mail to alll the people in my 'contact' folder!!!!
And it does again, again.... (sending e-mails On Behalf Of me...).
I checked the Zoosk.com that 'my account is currently INACTIVE'. Of course it asked me to 'recover' it.
Please HELP! How could I remove my 'account' from this evil web site?
How could I stop them sending the e-amils 'on behalf od me)?
it is a total scam. What is more, if you do put a cc payment down, you can expect to be harrassed with a ton of fake flirts and fake contact requests, just to entice you into continuing your membership. Sitting on a street corner with a placard around your neck with the word "SINGLE" on it is preferable to using Zoosk. Oh so very AVOID
A parent from my son's soccer team had her email contacts exposed and supposedly sent me a request to see a picture. Zoosk then hijacked my contacts and rapidly started sending emails out from me to all my contacts.
Zoosk is a fraud by not specifically asking for permission and disguising a friendly photo as bait.
DON'T USE ZOOSK
I'd just like to say a huge thanks to all the other reviewers here...I joined a few days ago - for free, of course - and was unpleasantly surprised by the general standard of the profiles...and I thought PoF was bad?! Then out the blue I catch sight of this beautiful guy in the 'get yourself noticed here' section. Perfect. I send him a wink (the only action that was free of charge) and lo and behold he wants to chat with me. Hmm. That, in effect is going to cost me a minimum of £40, it turns out. Then I remembered that pretty much every other guy I had seen on the site was undesirable. Strange that a picture of perfection randomly appears. Or am u just suspicious? Ha. Maybe not.
So then I decide to check out site reviews.
I just saved myself £40 - thanks everyone.
