“A very dodgy site to ignore”

Written on: 19/01/2015 by farewellcrets (1 review written)

Gumtree, a site run by pigs with robots for staff. Rudeness is clearly their priority, contacting them is no different to contacting inmates at a mental hospital, they have no idea about customer service and they deserve all the hate people have for them. Gumtree is not a company to consider if you want to advertise, there are much better sites around… Read Full Review

gumtree does not work
I seem to be one of lucky ones to actually get a job ad to go live but it is a waste of time, a couple of replies only which is pathetic, gumtree has such a bad reputation now that people do not bother with them. so do not waste your time, they are now a dead company which does not work

SHOULD be reported to the authorities
It is very clear now that Gumtree is a rip off site! Clearly they are bad just looking to steal peoples money! I placed two paid advertisements on there, in different categories, as I was trying to establish which was the best category to advertise in. They took the money for both ads, then a few days later deleted both adverts saying that I had breached their rule that you can only have one advert per item or service. do not use gumtree, they are very bad news

“Stupidly expensive Dreadful Customer Service”

Written on: 14/01/2015 by Blairgs1983 (1 review written)

Repeated fault which they refuse to compensate for. Indolent and uncooperative customer service WHEN YOU CAN CONTACT THEM. Phone lines permanently busy with a permanent number of 6 people waiting. Live chat takes ages IF it is there. Email response sluggish and uncooperative. How do I know all of this you may wonder ..... They began well but are now cynical and corrupt. They need competition!!… Read Full Review

“bunch of jokers are gumtree”

Written on: 09/01/2015 by pixnmix22 (1 review written)

Gumtree gets worse and worse. They delete job ads saying it is in the wrong section, what a joke, they suggest a section which charges stupid prices, they must think people are stupid. I would never spend money with gumtree, they are well known to delete adverts and refuse a refund, completely illegal and theft. Tell your friends about this bad site and warn them, they will not get a refund if an advert is deleted. The staff at gumtree should be ashamed working for such a disgusting company … Read Full Review

“the people at gumtree are fruit cakes”

Written on: 06/01/2015 by fibrelibre (1 review written)

I can see from all these bad reviews that gumtree are a bunch of fruit cakes, I also think they place fake ads in the jobs section as i never receive replies. They seem to be a nasty set up not worthy of genuine people dealing with them. I have told my friends not to use to gumtree as they will waste their time, its a warning to everyone… Read Full Review

“as a job seeker, gumtree is now the worst”

Written on: 01/01/2015 by moodlesmog (1 review written)

there is now a complete lack of jobs on gumtree, those few adverts are mostly illegal money MLM SCHEMES and gumtree has become a pyramid sales site.. The adverts disguise themselves in many ways, gumtree allow them, they are a very bad company, dont be fooled by the adverts, the majority are not genuine and I suspect have been put on by gumtree themselves to make people think the site works, take my word for it, they are now rubbish … Read Full Review

Most if not all of you have found that gumtree is now a dead site.

They try to charge sky high prices and whilst a few customers might be sucked into this, all you have to do is actually look at the number of new ads appearing, very few nowadays clearly showing that gumtree is now a complete waste of time and… Read Full Review

Think twice, three times before you give them your credit card info, you will probably lose your money. However, if you do suffer theft by gumtree, issue a complaint to your credit card provider to get a refund, I am sure credit card companies are now fully aware of the activities by gumtree.

Timewasting bunch --- ignoramus company "an ignorant or stupid person". That sums it up for the satff and management of gumtree, they are rude with no customer service. They delete adverts without telling you, I mean how ignorant is that.
If you are looking for a good place to advertise they are plenty of good sites around but never use gumtree especially as they will take you money, delete your advert and refuse to refund to you. They are not to be trusted with your money, best advice is do not use gumtree EVER

“The worst website ever”

Written on: 31/12/2014 by Coulsdonbuyer (1 review written)

We urged to see the original AD of a car seller who sold us a very dangerous to drive car. They said they don't have the original Ad because the seller has amended. Which I think is rubbish for a reputable website. Then I asked the gumtree people to let buyers the opportunity to review gumtree sellers. So that other buyers are aware and knows what to look for and how to be cautious from bad sellers. Gumtree should have the original advert in case innocent buyers have problems with bad… Read Full Review

Gumtree seem to hate customers and the way they carry on, more and more people will never use them again, very poor business people, the gumtree management team are pretty thick if they ignore all these bad reviews.
