About Zoosk

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. 

Cost/Price Plans

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.  

Mobile Options

Currently Zoosk offers mobile applications for both Android and iOS operating platforms.   

Refund Policy

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.

You fill out a free profile, and then you start getting these "XX wants to meet you" messages. Of course you can't communicate with anyone unless you are a paying member. So you pay (plus a surprise $25.00 "activation fee" - which should have been a red flag in itself) for a membership, and PRESTO, "The user account you are looking for cannot be found" in all cases. Then after you've been duped into signing up, you receive these ficitious notifications on a daily basis. Nearly ALL of them are fake.

Take my advice, learn from MY mistake, and save yourself 45 bucks.

Also you can't comunicate with some who has not paid yet their profile is shown to you. Scientific matching is bogus, ran into some who were my match they said they were not notified are the not paid members.

Zoosk = company trying to rip off people.

December9, 2012

Zoosk is a legitimate service IF they didn't charge stupid fees every time u wanted to wink or talk to a person. It's truly a rip-off because free members have absolutely ZERO functionality; You can't read other people's messages, and zoosk won't tell you if your message was sent. I was a free member and another girl e-mailed me back, but i was UNABLE to read the e-mail because zoosk wanted me to pay ridiculous fees just to read them. They have this concept of zoosk coins, where you have to buy the coins with real money, only then can u chat with people. I would suggest people try more legitimate services out there, like e-harmony or match.

It's just a scam... trying to make money off of people who are really looking to find that special someone out there. Here is a list of negatives:

- stupid activation fee: in addition to monthly subscription fee, you have to pay a hefty 'activation' fee. Who the hell does this?
- stupid zoosk matching service: where in order to talk to a match who likes you, you need to pay money...
- free members have no functionality: can't read other people's messages if you don't pay...
- zoosk coins: yeah right... like I'll dish out real money just to give some girl I've never met a digital 'heart' or 'panda'... ridiculous!
- zoosk 'boosting': Like I'll dish out money so my profile can show in beginning ranks when people are searching for others. What dating sites does this?

I would NOT recommend Zoosk. Period.

zoosk = scam

December5, 2012

If you've used your EMAIL PASSWORD on you ZOOSK (or other scam site) ACCOUNT!!!

Then they have your EMAIL ADDRESS + EMAIL PASSWORD and therefore the ability to mailbomb (& scam) all of your contacts FROM YOUR account until you :


Sorry for the caps but I wanted to be clear ;)

Also delete your info / pics, change your name address on there and then close your zoosk account.

Good advice. Has anyone complained to the Better Business Bureau? These accusations are serious.

Waste of money

December4, 2012

I wish I would have read this website before I wasted my money with this site. Scam central, Any one can create a profile but only people who pay can reply so you end up with either people who can't reply to you or scammer's trying to scam. I have meet one or 2 girls on it but nothing worth my time and especially my money. Oh and I'm not sure how they come up with their "scientific match" but I would find more suitable matches if I randomly inserted names into facebook. In other words, it's horrible. It's just another site that takes advantage of people need to be with other and tries to exploit it or money. I hope karma catches up to them.

Decided to see how much of a scam this was with my female friend.

We both signed up to Zoosk, on separate computers, and viewed each others profiles. We then both received emails saying that we'd messaged one another, when neither of us had sent the other a message.

Massive scam. It never used to be, but it is now.

Yes, i agree that it's a massive scam ! they advertise a free date/chat club and once you in they 'sucker you' into giving your banking details away before even chatting !!!!!!!!!!!

tried but no good
December 05, 2012

zoosk = bad news.. try elsewhere.. look out for moneygrabbing sites with no reputation.. use recommendations from friends for "quality" sites. Rembmber, just because a site "looks" good with professional graphics, it doesn't mean it's legit.

zoosk sucked me in

November26, 2012

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!

I was on the internet looking for legit dateing sites. I seen some of the ratings and Zoosk was one of the higher rated ones. I decided okay I'll give this one a try, after all it was mentioned with some of the others like, Match.com and so forth. So I do my profile and get everything all set up and ready to go. Now I'm thinking this is going to cost me about $25, but they hit me with an activation fee. I Spend over $60 total for one month. Now I set my criteria for who I'm looking for, age 35 to 45. I send out a few winks. It only takes seconds for a responce to come back, but they are all automated saying they appreciate the wink but can you write me a message. So I start writing messages, no responces. They have a thing called mega flirt so I send 150 flirts with one click. Here's what comes back. Remember my criteria, ages 35-45. I'm getting auto responces from 62 year olds. I'm a guy so I'm talking about women. Now I'm always getting alerts saying so and so has viewed me. And it's always the same people. I send them nice messages and no responce. Now repeat this hundreds of times and you start to think this site is nothing but a scam. I'm not tooting my horn, but I'm a nice looking guy and a good person at that. I find that there is no reason that I haven't even chated with one person. I keep setting my criteria to 35-45 year olds, but it doesn't matter. I still have to keep looking at the 20 somethings and 50 and 60 somethings. I'm sure the women are going through the same thing in reverse. Stay away from this dating site, and for those of you not getting what you want out of it, remember it's not you, or at least most of you. "Buyer Beware"

Thanks for the information. I just joined a few hours ago and same thing! THANKFULLY, I haven't paid them a dime. In the few short hours I've been on, I have gotten mostly 55-65 years old, including hairy and scary, lol!!! My criteria is set at 38-48!

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!
