FurDu Reports Phishing Scam

We have received reports of phishing accounts attempting to scam individuals with offers of rooms at or around FurDU.

If you encounter any suspicious or potentially fraudulent activity, please report it immediately to us at furrydownunder@gmail.com.au or to a member of staff. Do not engage with the individual until you receive a response from the FurDU team.

Report any verified scams to the ACCC via
https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/report-a-scam

Tips to protect yourself & others:

  1. ALWAYS verify the identity of the person, especially if you do not know them.
  • No one you are sharing a room with should be afraid of telling you their legal name.
  • Use a 2nd source to verify they are who they claim to be, confirm with friends or furrydownunder@gmail.com.au
  1. Rooms at Crowne and Oaks are paid on arrival, DO NOT send money to someone you have not met in person.
  2. To ensure your safety, NEVER send money via Cryptocurrency, PayPal Friends & Family, or any other non-disputable transfer methods.
  3. FurDU DOES NOT and will never offer you registration or hotel rooms via telegram. Con-hotel enquiries should be sent to hotel@furdu.com.au.
  4. “Scalping” hotel rooms or registration is strictly PROHIBITED and a bannable offense. Report anyone offering a room or registration above cost.
  5. If things seem too good to be true, they probably aren’t.

Thanks to our incredible community and staff, we have already been able to shut down many of this phishing activity. We apologize to anyone who may have fallen victim to these scams and wish you the best in recovering your funds.

FurDu 2022 Reg or No Reg

This has to be one of the most remarkable things I ever saw in the fandom period. FurDu an Australian fur con both opened and closed it’s registration on Sept 1st, 2022. No it wasn’t a server glitch, they SOLD OUT.

That was taken HERE

The reason behind it is simple the Australian govt has a limit on large gathering such as fur cons all because of COVID. Although I can’t say for certain what that number was I believe from previous postings that it is somewhere between 500 and 600.

And once again the above was posted on the very same day Reg opened.

FurDU 2023 Delayed 2 Weeks

Hey everyone,

Today, we’ve decided to move the release date of FurDU 2023 Game On by 14 days. The new con dates are May 12- 14 2023.

We sincerely apologize to anyone who has already taken leave, sorted flights or booked accommodation somewhere nearby the hotel.

You will note that the option to reserve a room at the The Crowne Plaza is unavailable in advance of the booking portal going live (same time as rego release). This change was made to ensure hotel rooms are available for those looking to stay on-site at our brand new 2023 venue.

Please do not contact the hotel to try and arrange a booking for the new dates, any pre-existing bookings made will not be rolled over to the new dates as they have not been booked as part of the event, you will need to contact the hotel to cancel your booking and re-book when the FurDU booking portal goes live.

In order to secure rooms at the Crowne, the date registrations go live has been moved forward to September 1 2022.

…We also decided to put this on a yellow background… (Sorry)
