click the 'admin' button on that page, then just enter your password and
click remove. If you can't find your ad or forgot your password, you can
try our password retrieval tool
(you can only use this if you entered an email address with your ad).

q ) my ad has
been removed/expired but i am still getting calls and/or it shows up on
a google search. how do i stop this from happening?
a ) google spiders our website and indexes content. once your ad has expired
your contact information is removed from the listing and the page is set
to no-indexing. this causes google to remove it from their search engine
cache on next spidering. if you are still getting calls it is because
people have printed your ad, or are viewing their internet providers cache
(usually international) or google cache instead of the website.
) my ad has been removed/expired
but my contact details still show up on the site.
how do i stop this from happening?
a ) first try a 'power refresh' by holding Ctrl and pressing F5 key when
on your listing. this will re-download the page so you can see the page
that is live.
note: if you have added your contact details to the description
box on the ad listing then they will still remain there after the ad has
been expired unless you log-in and edit the description. flatfinder only
removes contact information that was placed into the contact phone, email
boxes on the listing.
