He is African-American, likely between the ages of 25 - 35 years old and has, on rare occasions, had a woman help him.

Story from "Bob" (He asked to remain anonymous) sent to us on December 3, 2017.
Since September 2016, more POF users have contacted us about the same “underage girl” (or boy) sext scam than all other scams we hear about.
We have personally encouraged more than 380 men to contact the FBI about this scam --see below.
