At Gumtree, we want all of our users to have a safe and enjoyable experience on our website.
To help you along the way, we have developed our Safety Advice pages to give you as much guidance as possible when using Gumtree.
Our tips are split into Buying, Selling, Finding a home, Getting a job, Meeting up and Rehoming a pet sections that you can see in the menu on the left.
But if we had to summarise our advice into just two principles, they'd be:
1. Always meet in person when doing any business through Gumtree - it helps to avoid scammers who rely on online anonymity
2. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
We hope you find what you need here, but if you ever have any questions for us, then please get in touch.
