Gumtree / gumtree ripped me off!!!

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 post your adverts on there for free. Do not pay gumtree a dime.

Thanks.

Dear gumtree

Kindly refund this cash, as none of the adverts (Below) were appropriately featured.

To this effect, gumtree has now stolen a total of almost £40 from my account for the following 2 adverts which were never duly featured.

I want my money paied back to my card or I will sue you for £1, 000, 000 for each day that you delay.

Thank you.

    IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT, AND I AM SURE THAT THE AMOUNT OF CLICKS ON AN AD IS FAKE. IN MOST COUNTRIES IT'S LAW TO BE ABLE TO DELETE AN ACCOUNT ON THE INTERNET
