Smart Advertising

  • Just in case anyone on here has not spotted it already Gumtree and eBay motors let's you tell potential buyers your location via a show map feature. Sadly this feature gives thieves a directory of addresses as it pinpoints your exact location. Which therefore gives any scumbag directions to your house and invites them to come round and steal your bike and anything else they like.

    It's a feature which is automatically set to 'ON' by default and can be turned 'OFF'. Ebay motors does the very same now and both of them pinpoint your exact location for the scumbags. Many bikes get stolen because of this, (as I've seen many people stating this after they have placed an ad), as it makes finding you super easy for the pond life sadly!!!

    Always advertise smart and protect yourself!!! :winking_face:
