Breeding Unit Scam Alert

It has come to Greyhound Australasia’s attention that participants are being deceived in to purchasing breeding units (frozen semen vials) that do not exist.

This fraud occurs when a party purporting to be the owner of one or more breeding units either answers a “wanted” advertisement or places a “for sale” advertisement on well-known greyhound websites. Greyhound participants have paid for the breeding unit via direct bank transfer or cash in the belief that the unit exists and is owned by the party purporting to be the seller. Purchasers have been unable to recover their money when they find out they have been defrauded.

To avoid finding yourself in this position, you should confirm the existence and ownership of the breeding unit before making any payment by contacting Marsha Zinas at Greyhounds Australasia on 03 9548 3655 or by email at Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
