I've received 2 practically identical e-mails last year. The first was stuffed with typos, the second had less and now, this mail only has one typo - but the body is always the same. So, it all looks real, but I got 3 identical tmails - with differing articles in different journals for three completely different conferences. I agree, they look real but I'm 100% sure that this is scam.

A year ago I googled and came up with this site http://rmm257.blogspot.com/2010/07/spam ... nyone.html

See also http://blog.lib.umn.edu/denis036/thiswe ... es_in.html
from where I also got some comments:
"I am afraid that I am one of the mugs that was suckered by this. I travelled to Montreal from Europe for a conference on what I thought was renewable energy. Some 70 people are listed as speakers. However, if you look at the topics, they are on every possible topic and even the name of the conference has changed. I reckon the guy has grossed $50k Canadian from this one and should be well in pocket when he has paid hotel etc. Please tell people to stay clear of this. I really feel embarassed at being so stupid."

Just browse the internet and search for "EPS Global Medical Development Inc." - the evidence is compelling
