Are Ads screened before they appear on Gumtree?

No, every Ad isn't manually screened before they appear on Gumtree.


Every hour thousands of Ads are posted on Gumtree so we rely on users like you to help report bad ads to us using the links in the "Report this Ad" section.


In addition, Gumtree commits significant resources toward the detection and prevention of activities that violate our policies. This includes investment in technology and dedicated personnel to quickly investigate reports of inappropriate activity by our users.


However, we also strongly encourage our users to be on their guard and so, to help them stay safe, we have key safety tips displayed across the site, and a dedicated Safety section on our site:

Staying Safe using Gumtree
