Gumtree is an online market place where users can look for and advertise services and items. Users can establish and edit accounts, post free or paid ads on their websites, and connect with the person who placed the ad by phone or instant messaging. We’ve received a few emails from website visitors requesting that their Gumtree accounts be deleted.
When a survey was conducted as to why people are canceling their accounts on the website, it was found that the majority of them are getting too much promotional or newsletter, others report that their goods or service has bought out and they no longer require the profile, while others allege that their email has been bombarded by the company thus want to deactivate their account.
If you want to close your account because you received a newsletter or email from them, you can either label the email as spam and unsubscribe at the top of the email, or you can click the link included in the email. If you have another reason, I will assist you through the process of removing your Gumtree profile.
