This post is about the free conference and travel offer fraud from seccorganization.org and goldenwilliamdallashotel.com sites. This article is for you, if you received such email or are a victim of this scam.
Scammers are now getting a little more sophisticated and registering multiple fake websites to make a scam look real. Recently, one email is circulating from email@example.com (Hon. Lady Justice Elizabeth Alividza) and telling that the recipient is selected to attend the Social Equality and Child Care Organization (SECCO) conference being held from November 25th to 30th 2019 at Golden William Dallas Hotel situated in Dallas Texas USA (not separated by comma). The email mentions to provide round-trip flight from attendee’s country to the USA. The attendee will be responsible to reserve a room at the Golden William Dallas Hotel. Here are the details of the two fraud sites:

CDSBureau investigation team found that the scammers are trying to get money through fake hotel booking and steal travel documents (like passports) and individual information. The SECCORGANIZATION and Golden William Dallas Hotel the both have address of parking lot in Dallas. On the hotel website the address is 1827 Wood St, Dallas, Texas where no ‘Golden William Dallas Hotel‘ hotel exists. Both the phone numbers mentioned above are voice over IP (VOIP/internet) numbers that can ring anywhere in the world. On top of it, the hotel website has stolen pictures from various hotel sites including RitzCarlton. seccorganization.org has stolen pictures from various websites including bebegroup. CDSBureau found that there is no such organization or hotel registered in USA.
Both of these domain names were registered on same day on July 19, 2019. The both sites are hosted at hostinger.com. These domain names are privacy protected and their registrant names are not available.
