The dumb scammer signed up trying to claim that their conference was legitimate.

When asked to provide evidence in the form of the venue of the conference and its contact details they refused and started making excuses.

This user registered from a proxy domain in Singapore.

The WhoIs details in the post above show that the fake domain was registered by someone in India.

If any proof is needed that this is a scam then there it is - A conference in Seoul, South Korea, apparently arranged by a company in the US, but the domain is registered by someone in India and the organiser uses an IP address in Singapore.
