This FAKE CONFERENCE offers "Free"conference registration fees and air transportation for attendees of the conference. The scammers require advance hotel payment (for a non-existent hotel) in exchange for the "free" conference fees and "free" airline tickets.

The SCAM claims:

" Interested presenters should submit an abstract of less than 500 words of text summarizing the proposed presentation and a short bio (100 words, email: [email protected] or fax: +44(0)7024009071 by 31st January, 2014."

"Registration is free of charge for delegates from developing countries. Also free flight ticket, travel insurance, visa fees and per diem to be provided for all paper presenters and participating delegates from developing countries. For more details on online registration, abstract submission, full papers and power point presentation, accommodation, flight, and venue, please email: [email protected] or fax: +44(0)7024009071"

In this scam, the "conference organizers" will state that only participants with a hotel reservation receipt from Destiny 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!
