3rd Annual Technology, Science and Climate Change Conference 2014, also referred to the 3rd Annual Engineering, Science and Climate Change Conference 2014 (ICTSC 2014)

This Conference Scam claims to be the (NON-EXISTENT) 3rd Annual Technology, Science and Climate Change Conference 2014 (ICTSC 2014) at the Paradise Suites Hotel London, UK.

This scam solicits hotel 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 1 - 6 March 2014 at the Paradiese Suites Hotel Monmouth Road, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 2DH, UK, United Kingdom. Website: http://paradisesuites.co.uk/index.htm

This scam's fake websites ( http://renewable2014.org.uk and http://paradisesuites.co.uk/index.htm) are in the process of being suspended.

Phone: +447086463568
Fax: 07024015943 or email: [email protected]
45A, Sanforth Street, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S41 8RS , UK


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 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 will have their hotel reservation fee refunded on their arrival at the venue."

"Participants from developing country are not expected to pay for their registration fees, REEC 2014 Conference Board will take care of that. You are only required to book and pay for your accommodation at Paradise Suites Hotels. Only participants with hotel reservation receipt from Paradise Suites Hotels will be issued invitation Letters."

"Hotel fees paid at the Paradise Suites Hotel shall be reimbursed on your arrival at the Conference venue by our Conference Board."
