How to Spot a Fake Dog Agility Facebook Page or Group

๐ŸŽฏ Why It’s Important:

The dog agility community has seen a surge in fake Facebook pages and groups, some posing as major events like the AKC Agility Nationals and the UKI US Open. It’s easy to get caught up, and I’ve witnessed friends and students falling prey to these scams, not just parting with money for what should be free, but also risking their personal information, or even unknowingly aiding in the spread of misinformation.

๐Ÿ›‘ What You’ll Learn:

  • How to identify unauthorized groups.
  • The red flags of scam livestreams.
  • My personal methods for verifying the legitimacy of dog agility pages/groups.

๐Ÿ˜ฅ Don’t Miss Out:

Avoid the frustration and the feeling of betrayal that comes with online scams. Join us to arm yourself and your friends with the knowledge to spot these fakes. Please share and spread the word in the dog agility community.
