“the site is well known as bad”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by theboysareback (1 review written)

the site is well known as bad, it shows by the lack of adverts. THEY HAVE PUT A NOOSE AROUND THEIR NECKS and are being slowly strangled, guess nobody is surprised about that, they are probably the most unethical site on the internet and time is running out… Read Full Review

I will never use them again, they are such a disgrace, they will not put on my advert, never reply to my emails, a sign of pure ignorance. I would never dream of giving them my credit card info, they just cannot be trusted, a completely un professional site. I do know that trading standards are currently looking at them

Its amazing how fast word and mouth spreads. I was about to use this site to advertise my spare room, was about to feature it, was telling my work pal who said STOP and told me of his experience which was aweful and directed me here. WOW so many complaints, never seen so much for one site before. Made my mind will not advertise with them… Read Full Review

Berkshire gum not working, cannot get my advert in Reading jobs offered.
Gave up trying to get my ad on, so went to Friday ads and free ads, no need for the gum anymore and I would not recommend gum to anyone, they have a very bad reputation now, don't waste your money with them

the gum tree experience --- is so bad its difficult to put into words. They are without doubt the most disgusting site I have ever dealt with and not one I would suggest to my enemies, it truly is a sick organisation THEY appear not to like job adverts but daily allow utter rubbish which they purport as jobs !!!

paid adverts are a waste of money, to start with they are far too expensive and secondly they are a waste of money as there are very few replies.
gumtree is no longer a popular site because of the very aggresive nasty way they treat customers, they cannot expect customers or loyalty.
It is no surprise to see all the bad comments here, I will never use them again, and unless you want rudeness and bad manners from them, take a wide berth and find somewhere else to advertise, paying them with such high charges would be plain stupidity

GUM TREE IS A SAD SITE
I placed on the site an advert to rent out my one bedroom flat, ok its in a block of flats but it is a private flat.
This sad site deleted my ad saying

"Your ad has been posted in the wrong category. We believe your ad is better placed in property > to share category."

Goodness sake, it is a private flat not shared, do these people not understand english. I have now advertised it on rightmove, cannot be dealing with nutcase sites like gum tree which means LOST CUSTOMER

aweful site to deal with, its not rocket science but they make it virtually impossible to place an advert on their site. When I email them all I get back is nonsense, they do not seem to have staff who know what they are doing. My advert has been processing for 48 hrs now, this is so bad and looking at the reviews, it is a general problem. It stops people in their tracks spending money, they are not credible any more

Written on: 07/07/2014

gum tree is a site to stay well clear of, placing an advert is just a nightmare and if you are lucky to even get an advert on, (that takes forever) they delete it, no matter if its free or you have paid for it, then they will not refund your money. These people are rogue traders.
PLUS, they try to put on your computer 20 plus cookies which are trackers and some they use to track your activity, pass your details onto others, maybe even your bank details. I set up a specific email address to advertise on gum tree and did not use that address anywhere else. Within 24 hrs I was receiving spam emails to that address, and only gum tree could have given that address out. If you want to keep your computer/phone private and all your information, never use the gum tree site

Gumtree is a Fake Organization which Steals Cash from People's Accounts. * Most of the 'Ad Responders' are Fake Staff who are paid by Gumtree Agents to give the impression that appropriate feedback is being given. * Gumtree also stole money from my Credit Card without publishing my ad, and is now refusing to refund my cash. *My advice to everybody is pure and simple : Avoid Gumtree Featured Adverts. Do not pay Gumtree for any Featured Advertising. If you must post your ads on Gumtree, then… Read Full Review

Gumtree - Processing Time a JOKE
I have a job for someone out there and I thought post it on Gumtree, what a mistake that was. It says adverts will be posted in seconds, but may take up to 4 hours or maybe 12 hours???? That is how vague the muppets at Gumtree are. So after 2 days of processing, yes that over 48 hours later, my simple job advert has not been posted and someone out there desperate for a job is being let down by Gumtree. OK, its my fault I should have researched Gumtree and found out how many people have complained about the site. Its a small time operation that cant deliver and I should have posted my advert somewhere...

OVERPRICED Advertising rates

try to get a job post on gumtree ? They ask you pay over £17 and what for, the site is a white elephant nowadays. Just select a job section and look to see how many new ads are on the site, there might be one today then a couple yesterday and so it goes on, 3 days old, 6 days old a few here and there. This must have a double bubble, no jobs, job seekers will not use the site, no job seekers and no employers will use the site let alone pay the over inflated prices.
The management of gumtree must be pretty thick if they think they will make make money this way, to be honest, children could run gumtree better than the current management.
SO EXPENSIVE FOR A WHITE ELEPHANT, no wonder the complaints here keep on growing

voted worst site ever all over the net, review sites, forums, you name it, the gum tree reputation for being nasty and rude and impossible to deal with, has spread all over the net, twitter and facebook included.

You can tell people are avoiding them just by looking at how many ads are posted each day, the jobs section is just a farse now.
Nobody but nobody will trust them again and the general advice is never spend money with them, remember once they have your money, they do not give refunds, very illegal.
They are destroying themselves day by day and the funny thing is, they don't seem to know it

after reading everything on here, i decided to place an advert for new staff and IF it went live and was not deleted, I would then pay to feature my ad. It never went live and after 4 days, it's still not live. Conclusion is that gum tree does not want to attract business let alone being paid. All very odd but that is their problem, plenty more companies want to take my money, gum tree does not. Wonder how much money they lose on a daily basis, must be a lot… Read Full Review

you are very wise not to spend any money with gumtree, I did, they accepted my money and deleted my advert. They refused to refund so my credit card company got it back. The problem is they go via paypal, part of their own setup, Normal banks will not give them credit card facilities because of the huge number of chargebacks.

So with rudeness and greed this company is on it's way out. Customers once bitten will not return, well done gum tree, enjoy your failure

they are the worst site and experience I have had
gum tree are pushing people further and further away, their
reputation is so bad it's no wonder they are now designated
as very low grade. It is impossible to place an ad, and if you
are lucky enough to get an ad live it takes longer than 24 hrs
which is completely useless for advertisers. I can only advise
people to never use gum tree or try to spend money with them

“"fake adverts on the site"”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by bigdanedog (1 review written)

recently i have replied to many jobs adverts on gum tree. Many replied saying have not and never will put adverts on the site ?? Seems to me that gum tree are putting on adverts themselves to pad out the jobs sections as real companies no longer use them. If you are looking for a job, gum tree is not a good site as you will probably waste your time. … Read Full Review

GUM TREE IS A SAD SITE
I placed on the site an advert to rent out my one bedroom flat, ok its in a block of flats but it is a private flat.
This sad site deleted my ad saying

"Your ad has been posted in the wrong category. We believe your ad is better placed in property > to share category."

Goodness sake, it is a private flat not shared, do these people not understand english. I have now advertised it on rightmove, cannot be dealing with nutcase sites like gum tree which means LOST CUSTOMER

aweful site to deal with, its not rocket science but they make it virtually impossible to place an advert on their site. When I email them all I get back is nonsense, they do not seem to have staff who know what they are doing. My advert has been processing for 48 hrs now, this is so bad and looking at the reviews, it is a general problem. It stops people in their tracks spending money, they are not credible any more

gum tree is a site to stay well clear of, placing an advert is just a nightmare and if you are lucky to even get an advert on, (that takes forever) they delete it, no matter if its free or you have paid for it, then they will not refund your money. These people are rogue traders.
PLUS, they try to put on your computer 20 plus cookies which are trackers and some they use to track your activity, pass your details onto others, maybe even your bank details. I set up a specific email address to advertise on gum tree and did not use that address anywhere else. Within 24 hrs I was receiving spam emails to that address, and only gum tree could have given that address out. If you want to keep your computer/phone private and all your information, never use the gum tree site

paid adverts are a waste of money, to start with they are far too expensive and secondly they are a waste of money as there are very few replies.
gumtree is no longer a popular site because of the very aggresive nasty way they treat customers, they cannot expect customers or loyalty.
It is no surprise to see all the bad comments here, I will never use them again, and unless you want rudeness and bad manners from them, take a wide berth and find somewhere else to advertise, paying them with such high charges would be plain stupidity

OVERPRICED Advertising rates

try to get a job post on gumtree ? They ask you pay over £17 and what for, the site is a white elephant nowadays. Just select a job section and look to see how many new ads are on the site, there might be one today then a couple yesterday and so it goes on, 3 days old, 6 days old a few here and there. This must have a double bubble, no jobs, job seekers will not use the site, no job seekers and no employers will use the site let alone pay the over inflated prices.
The management of gumtree must be pretty thick if they think they will make make money this way, to be honest, children could run gumtree better than the current management.
SO EXPENSIVE FOR A WHITE ELEPHANT, no wonder the complaints here keep on growing

Gumtree - Processing Time a JOKE
I have a job for someone out there and I thought post it on Gumtree, what a mistake that was. It says adverts will be posted in seconds, but may take up to 4 hours or maybe 12 hours???? That is how vague the muppets at Gumtree are. So after 2 days of processing, yes that over 48 hours later, my simple job advert has not been posted and someone out there desperate for a job is being let down by Gumtree. OK, its my fault I should have researched Gumtree and found out how many people have complained about the site. Its a small time operation that cant deliver and I should have posted my advert somewhere else

People, the fact is that gumtree is run by clowns, the staff are clowns, they are villians and theives.
They are rogue traders and are destroying themselves bit by bit because they are so stupid.
They are now trying to charge for most of their sections with outragous prices and its so easy to see
that people are refusing to pay, hence a noticable lack of adverts.
Makes you wonder what planet they live on ??

I belong to a huge Business Money Forum with currently over 1 million members and there is a warning
NOT to use Gumtree and all the negative reasons why. The stories being told about gumtree are horrific
and it proves to everyone what a bad company they are. The warning continues regarding E-Bay and Paypal
who are all part of the same set up. So many people now know not to use these companies and in particular

Friday Ads took just one hour to make the advert live, gumtree took 24 hrs to make it live.
Pretty disgusting service on behalf of gumtree and because of that, with all replies via gumtree (there are not many though) I reply saying that gumtree took too long to place the advert.

Really cannot be dealing with a site like gum tree they have no interest in advertisers.

I totally agree with the comments regarding the unacceptable behaviour by gumtree. This website needs to be struck off immediatly as the seem to do with their paying customer's adverts who they treat so abysmally. I have emailed them on numerous occasions asking for an explaination as to why they have removed my paid advert but nothing, no response and yet they are quick enough to remove your advert with no explaination. They are completely unprofessional to the point of being rude and their activity must be illegal so why are they still allowed to get away with it. DO NOT USE GUMTREE.COM to sell or advertise your business and DO NOT PAY GUMTREE.COM as they will take your money and run. Customer Service at gumtree is non- existent! Ther is no phone number and no direct email to complain to so if you give them your money there is apparently no come back. Customer Berware, stay away from gumtree!

Gumtree is now the worst site on the net, it is clear they have now lost forever tens of thousands of customers
with the disgusting way they treat people. I had an advert for a job on gumtree, a year ago I would receive some 100 replies.
My advert lasted for 4 weeks and no surprise, I had only 2 replies proving that people avoid gumtree as a time
wasting site, it truly is the biggest load of junk on the internet. I think that the gumtree management are so thick that they
do not understand what customer service is all about.
If you complain all you get back is a bog standard message, the bottom line is that they could not care less about customers,
a shambles of a site. I wonder if their staff know they work for a sham company ? Warning to everyone is NEVER use gumtree,
they are the biggest waste of space ever, just read all the comments on here then simply boycott them, they are NOT in the

YES TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE NEGATIVE FEELINGS. I do not think that the Gumtree web site is trying to make you pay as I have paid for ads after having free ads deleted and even those paid ads are deleted. It is very hit and miss whether you have your money returned. Sometimes you do and sometimes you do not. From my past experience I would never contact them again by phone or email as once that happens the email (mine was)may be blacklisted.
I never ask for responses through their email system as from my personal experience(university level tutoring) once they deleted my advert, by using the same email address for another advert they then sent email to my next enquirer for my advert and said I was behaving fraudulently. This is defamation of character. Yes the web site was excellent and hopefully they will see the error of their ways and return to a good service as before( in my opinion deterioration set in end of 2012).

E Bay own gumtree so be warned
Let this be a wake up call if you are thinking of using gumtree. E-BAY ACCOUNTS Hacked 2 months ago before they told anyone, personal information, your personal information probably now available for anyone to use. The gum tree site will no doubt use the same systems as e-bay (as they are owned by e-bay) making gumtree a site that could expose your private information. If you want to protect your personal information such as credit cards, debit cards, your address, your email, your phone number etc etc, the answer is now simple, never give such information to gumtree, it is a site that has already proved to be not trusted, all the reviews here prove that. And by the way, Pay pal is an e-bay company BEWARE THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU LET ANY COMPANY HAVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION INCLUDING CREDIT CARDS

aweful site to deal with, its not rocket science but they make it virtually impossible to place an advert on their site. When I email them all I get back is nonsense, they do not seem to have staff who know what they are doing. My advert has been processing for 48 hrs now, this is so bad and looking at the reviews, it is a general problem. It stops people in their tracks spending money, they are not credible any more

gum tree is a site to stay well clear of, placing an advert is just a nightmare and if you are lucky to even get an advert on, (that takes forever) they delete it, no matter if its free or you have paid for it, then they will not refund your money. These people are rogue traders.
PLUS, they try to put on your computer 20 plus cookies which are trackers and some they use to track your activity, pass your details onto others, maybe even your bank details. I set up a specific email address to advertise on gum tree and did not use that address anywhere else. Within 24 hrs I was receiving spam emails to that address, and only gum tree could have given that address out. If you want to keep your computer/phone private and all your information, never use the gum tree site

THE SITE TAKES TOO LONG
I placed a job advert on both gum tree and friday-ads. Identical advert looking for staff.

Friday Ads took just one hour to make the advert live, gumtree took 24 hrs to make it live.
Pretty disgusting service on behalf of gumtree and because of that, with all replies via gumtree (there are not many though) I reply saying that gumtree took too long to place the advert.

Really cannot be dealing with a site like gum tree they have no interest in advertisers.
Its a joke, 24 hrs for an advert to go live, they are on a different planet to the rest of us

gum tree is such a waste of time now
wonder whats happened to their jobs section ? it used to be very active but now, only a couple of jobs a day are being added and those are jobs that are not real, just wanting your money, it seems to me that nothing is real on gumtree now and they have become a complete waste of time to use or even search for jobs. Employers are clearly staying away from the site. Over the last 12 months gum tree has gone from bad to worse

Fake Britain and gum tree. Fake Britain on BBC 1 exposes fake I-Phones and accessories being advertised on gum tree and e-bay (same company)

Fakes have been on gumtree for years yet they fail to do anything about it, there must be hundreds of fake items on gumtree and I would advise anyone not to use this site to buy products. If you think they maybe fake, they most probably are and you will lose your money. Gum tree could not care less

People, the fact is that gumtree is run by clowns, the staff are clowns, they are villians and theives.
They are rogue traders and are destroying themselves bit by bit because they are so stupid.
They are now trying to charge for most of their sections with outragous prices and its so easy to see
that people are refusing to pay, hence a noticable lack of adverts.
Makes you wonder what planet they live on ??

I belong to a huge Business Money Forum with currently over 1 million members and there is a warning
NOT to use Gumtree and all the negative reasons why. The stories being told about gumtree are horrific
and it proves to everyone what a bad company they are. The warning continues regarding E-Bay and Paypal
who are all part of the same set up. So many people now know not to use these companies and in particular
NEVER USE GUMTREE.
It is clear that Gumtree is a dying company being destroyed by forums, reveiew sites and twitter let alone
word and mouth. It is their own fault, ignorance, rudeness and arrogance will never be accepted by anyone

Gumtree is now the worst site on the net, it is clear they have now lost forever tens of thousands of customers
with the disgusting way they treat people. I had an advert for a job on gumtree, a year ago I would receive some 100 replies.
My advert lasted for 4 weeks and no surprise, I had only 2 replies proving that people avoid gumtree as a time
wasting site, it truly is the biggest load of junk on the internet. I think that the gumtree management are so thick that they
do not understand what customer service is all about.
If you complain all you get back is a bog standard message, the bottom line is that they could not care less about customers,
a shambles of a site. I wonder if their staff know they work for a sham company ? Warning to everyone is NEVER use gumtree,
they are the biggest waste of space ever, just read all the comments on here then simply boycott them, they are NOT in the
interests of the General Public and should be exposed as Rogue Traders
