This Conference Scam is the (NON-EXISTENT) 3rd Annual Environmental Management and Climate Change Conference 2013 being presented by the NON-EXISTENT Disaster Control Group (DCGC 2013) at the (NON-EXISTENT) Blue Verde Resorts Hotel.

This scam promises free conference fees in exchange for paying for a hotel room at a hotel THAT DOES NOT EXIST. Victims pay money and NEVER RECEIVE THE CONFERENCE FEES !!!

This fake conference is "scheduled" to be held 25 - 30 June 2013 at the NON-EXISTENT Blue Verde Resorts Hotel ,58 West Street Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1RP, UK.

This scam's fake website ( http://gsfced.org.uk/index.htm ) and the fake hotel's website ( http://blueverderesorts.co.uk/index.htm ) are in the process of being suspended.

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 "Free"conference registration fees for attendees of the conference. The scammers require advance hotel payment (for a non-existent hotel) in exchange for the "free" conference fees.

The SCAM claims:

"Participants whose work has been accepted must proceed with payment of their room reservation at the conference venue ( BlueVerde Resorts). The rest of the inscription fee will be covered accordingly with the amount and dates of the conference call. Participants from developing countries of Asia, South America, Africa would be refunded their hotel reservation fee on their arrival at the venue."

"Note: Participants from developing country are not expected to pay for their registration fees, DCGC 2013 Sponsors will take care of that. You are only required to book and pay for your accommodation at Blueverde Resortss. Only participants with hotel reservation receipt from Blueverde Resortss will be issued invitation Letters."
