Report a Scam
There are two steps you can do to report a scam on Chooknet:
First: Report the scam to Chooknet send email to admin at chooknet dot com dot au with details of the scam. Please provide as much information as you can and include a link to the scam ad so we can see what it says.Â It would be even better if you sent an email to the scammers to request information about their product for sale, and send us a copy of that email.Â Our email address is admin at chooknet dot com dot au
Second: Click here to report a scam directly to the ACCC who will take the necessary action to apprehend the culprit!Â If you do this second step as well,Â let us know your postal address and if the item is a genuine scam (does that make sense?) we will send you a fridge magnet as a thankyou for helping to keep Chooknet scam-safe.
ChookNet provides the free ad service in good faith and accepts no responsibility for advertisers who may use the service. Where payment is required for goods prior to delivery eg. fertile eggs it is the responsibility of the purchaser to verify the sellers credentials prior to payment of goods at all times.Â If you pay for goods advertised and do not receive them please report the matter to the police immediately.

Learn to recognize hoax ads.Â Is the price too good to be true?Â If so then its most likely a hoax.Â Is the item advertised not related to poultry eg. mobile phones?Â Then its most likely a hoax ad.Â If you are not sure of the seller's credentials, then use Paypal to pay for goods.Â Paypal have extensive checking procedures in place to verify sellers and although not completely foolproof, provide some added means of protection.
Check Your Seller's Reputation
If you are buying something for the first time it's a good idea to do some research and find out some information about the seller.Â Although the majority of sellers on Chooknet are genuine and reliable, unfortunately these days you still need to be cautious and do some homework beforehand.
The forums are a great way to research your seller before you part with your hard-earned cash.Â I recommend that you post a message on the Chooknet Forum, and on the Backyard Poultry forum to find out if the seller has a good reputation.Â You will soon find out either way.Â You will soon receive many replies either to congratulate the seller on their customer service, or to report a bad incident!
