Paid ad features don't work | Support don't contact you back

published

I paid for weekly bump-ups for 10 weeks and it didn't bump up at all.

This has happened 2 times. $60 wasted.

I have tried to contact Gumtree support but they do not respond. I just get the automated email saying that my enquiry has been received. Then nothing...

It's a shame there's no number to call. And it's a shame you have to give negative feedback on a review site before they respond. If that even happens...

Full of scammers, time wasters and Gumtree paid message senders.

published

Well I keep getting messages asking if item still available and where and when to collect...thats it, no other messages from them when I respond.
Also many messages about...can you post to Melbourne?
Seriously Gumtree, stop paying people to send messages. Are we that dumb that you think we think these are real buyers...hmm all these "different" messages from different "buyers" are all the same.
Pls give your "buyers" a new list of scripted messages to send to sellers!
Rubbish way to sell...its just a scammers platform.
Well Gumtree, I dont like scammers and your unethical methods to keep the sellers keen with fake buyers and messages.
I have deleted my account and uninstalled your app.
Im soo happy!

2022 and still dodgy email scammers

published

Guaranteed within 5 mins of putting a car ad up for sale you'll get 3 or 4 people interested in the car and they'll ask you to email them about the car..Phone number is clearly there and the fact they can still communicate with you through Gumtree Messenger...this leads me to believe the scammers are actually Gumtree employees...Gumtree is a con

It Is A Rort!

published

From the onset, the system uses every step to lead you to an upgrade for a fee then another, then another.
The upgrades promise attractive benefits like having your ad featured prominently on their front page and this does happen.... But only for about twelve hours when they know you'll be looking.
After that, it can take you half an hour to locate the ad if you're lucky - and the fees you paid were totally wasted. It's a scam.
Stay away.

Women beware selling on Gumtree

published

The last two items I have advertised had men of dubious intent contact me. The first one bought a cordless drill then would msg me late at night until I blocked him. The second time I was contacted by John who wanted to know if I was home. He did this two days in a row but never turned up. I work in a public library and one patron said she would never use gumtree because from experience it is a format for creepy men. And a work colleague told me the same after a man started stalking her! I will never use gumtree again and I shall spread the word to discourage women from exposing themselves to predatory behaviour.

The site is currently full of advertising

published

The site used to be alright many many years ago though, Nowadays it's gone seriously downhill.

Full Of advertising content plus don't think that hardly anyone else uses the site recently.

Also : scammers sending text messages attached so trying to trick into pressing On the deceptive Link so who knows what else bad things can happen
Some kind of scarey hateful unusual damage.

I agree with the other reviews recently.
Even tried giving items away for free with no success

SCAM ALERT

published

BEWARE of purchasers on Gumtree offering to purchase your goods and arrange for delivery with Aramex, with the payment transferred to your account via Amarex. It is a scam.

What happened!

published

I am trying to sell my car right now and Gumtree used to be amazing, now after my car is listed it is impossible for people to find it with all the car yards listing over the top of it and also the search function pulls up every car other than what is actually searched for. If I search for a Mazda sedan why would I want to see Utes, 4wd's and Ferraris

gumtree is very good,

published

Gumtree is a very good free advertising online platform to buy and sell goods and services, however is unfair for people to blame Gumtree with so many negative comments about their bad experiences, it is up to the individual to take a buyer beware approach when buying & selling & arranging meet ups or doing transactions with strangers. DONT BLAME GUMTREE FOR YOUR FOOLISH MISTAKES!

Hi, if I delete a message conversation with a buyer, will the thread be deleted on their end too? I sent them my PayPal link so they could pay, but they have since pulled out, and I want to remove their ability to use link, if possible.
