Our Investigation Analysist:
Here are a few of the reasons that these sites are fraud:
- No such organization exists in the USA.
- These sites are run by the same conference scammers that CDS Bureau reported in its previous posts.
- These domains are registered this year.
- Website contains profile of fake people.
- Their number is a VOIP number and can be any where in the world.
- No conference organization in USA can process visa papers for anyone.
- Scammers ask the conference participants to book a fraud hotel that does not exist in the USA. It is not on Expedia or any other travel site.
They are fraud stay away from them and don’t provide your personal information. They can misuse that in other scam. Never share your passport information or anything with them.
