5th International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts and Action

This Conference Scam claims to be the (NON-EXISTENT) 5th International Conference on Climate Change at the Grand Royale London Hyde Park Hotel.

This scam solicits £300 for conference registration fees. Victims pay money and NEVER GET THE MONEY BACK BECAUSE THE CONFERENCE DOES NOT EXIST!!!

This fake conference is "scheduled" to be held 26 - 30 April 2013 at the Grand Royale London Hyde Park Hotel 1-9 Inverness Terrace, Bayswater, London, W2 3JP, United Kingdom.

This scam's fake website ( ) is in the process of being suspended.

The fake conference claims the following contact information:

Dr. Alex Cross
Conference Chair
73 Bounces Rd, London Borough of Enfield, London N9 8JE, UK.
Phone: +44 702 407 5058,+44 702 407 5258
Fax: +44 702 407 5354
Email: [email protected]

The phone numbers (+44 70...) are redirect numbers which make it appear the person is in the UK, but actually, they can receive the call any place in the world. See this topic for further information: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16485

This FAKE CONFERENCE offers "Access Grant Scholar Award" grant money for attendees of the conference.

The SCAM claims:

"The Participating Delegates who receive this Award have their all round air ticket, travel insurance and per diem covered by our sponsors and supporters."

NOTE: THE ACCESS GRANT SCHOLAR AWARD does not pay for the conference registration fee!!!

Dear Brooks,

My friend received an email form [email protected] stating the upcoming 5th International Climate Change Conference in London, UK. I just want to clarify if it is true that the said conference is a scam/frued? because they already send money for their tickets.

Thank you.

Very truly yours,

Claire Lerit

Welcome to ScamWarners, aug12ph.
I'm sorry to read that money has been sent to these people.
As previously stated, there is no "5th International Climate Change Conference" in London. The website is a fake and the domain was only registered in April of this year. The contact details on the site show that the scammers are using a redirect phone number. These numbers starting with "070" or "+4470" can be directed to anywhere in the world. ?
