The 2nd Global Conference on Environmental Dynamics, Science and Technology (GCEDST 2013).

This Conference Scam is the (NON-EXISTENT) Global Conference on Environmental Dynamics, Science and Technology (GCEDST 2013) being presented by the NON-EXISTENT Environmental Dynamics Groupat the (NON-EXISTENT) Bolton Palace Hotel.

This scam promises free conference fees and reimbursed airline ticket 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 OR ARLINE TICKET REIMBURSEMENT!!!

This fake conference is "scheduled" to be held 25 - 29 November 2013 at the NON-EXISTENT Bolton Palace Hotel 165A Borough High Steet London SE1 1HR, United Kingdom.

This scam's fake website ( http://gcedst2013.org.uk/index.htm ) and the fake hotel's website ( http://boltonpalacehotel.co.uk/index-2.html ) are in the process of being suspended.

The fake conference claims the following contact information:

Dr.Mike Lawrence
Conference Chair
241b, Hoe Street, Walthamstow, London, E17 9PP, United Kingdom
Ph:+447053828354
Fax:+448435241465

The fake hotel claims the following contact information:

165A Borough High Steet London SE1 1HR, United Kingdom
Email: [email protected]
Tel: +447053828357,
Fax: +448435241467

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: http://scamwarners.com/forum/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:

"Registration is free of charge for delegates from developing countries. Also free flight tickets, travel insurance, visa fees and per diem will be provided for all paper presenters and participating delegates."

"We shall fund the all round air ticket for all our qualified delegates-from your country to London and back, visa cost, per diem and travel insurance via the access grant, this support is for delegates from developing countries who are unable to fund their travel costs. Send in your motivation letter for access grant to [email protected]@gcedst2013.org.uk"

In this scam, the "conference organizers" will state that only participants with a hotel reservation receipt from Bolton Palace Hotel will be issued invitation letters to the conference. The victim pays the hotel fee, never receives airline tickets, and loses his/her money!
