Invitation: United Nations Global Summit 15-18 March, 2011 @ London, United Kingdom. 11

Ok folks – I can see from the comments this post has been receiving that I need to make this one easy for you – so here goes.

IT’S A SCAM

It’s been a while since I received a scam conference invitation.  This one was forwarded to me by a reader of this blog.

There is no conference.  That email address (booking@thehydeparkhotelslondon.net) has been set up just for this scam.  If you look at “thehydeparkhotelslondon.net” there is no website there.

All this scammer wants to do is take money from you by charging you fees.  Just ignore him or her.

      The previous comment helps you understand how the scam works. The REAL domain name for the REAL Royal Garden Hotel is royalgardenhotel.co.uk

      The domain associated with the booking email (royalgardens-hotel.com) was registered in June 2011. Notice that it ISN’T the domain of the real hotel. If you make the mistake of emailing this address to book, the scammer will ask you to send money for a fake booking.

      Likewise, the domain associated with the registration and visa application email (un-events.org) was registered in July 2011. I imagine the scammer will ask you for money for your fake visa application too.
