ההסבר:זו היא תרמית מתוחכמת שקשה לא ליפול בה. הרמאים משתמשים במידע קיים על כנסים קיימים. הם שולחים את האימייל לארגונים שעשויים להיות מעוניינים בסוג הזה של כנסים. הם עורכים את אימייל הפניה לכנס ומוסיפים לו פרט חשוב - הודעה על מימון מלא של השתתפות בכנס, כולל טיסות ומלון והוצאות אש"ל. ראו באימייל המצוטט את הפסקה תחת הכותרת SPONSORSHIP CONFIRMATION.
הפיתיון הוא מימון מלא להשתתפות בכנס. מכיוון שמדובר בכנס קיים של ארגון קיים, מי שיחשוד ויחפש פרטים על הכנס והארגון ימצא אתרים לגיטימיים עם שמות מרצים, פרסומי הארגון, תכנית מסודרת וכו'. מטרת הרמאים היא לקבל את דמי ההרשמה ולכן הם משנים את המידע לשם העברת הכסף של דמי ההרשמה.
החיפוש "conference registration" scam מגלה שזו תרמית ידועה עבור כנסים שונים בתחומים שונים. אם מקבלים באימייל פניה מגוף לא מוכר המציע השתתפות בכנס עם מימון מלא, כדאי לחשוד. אני ממליץ להיכנס לאתר של הארגון ולבדוק איתם את המידע שהגיע באימייל ולא לכתוב לאף אחת מהכתובות המופיעות בגוף האימייל. רוב הסיכויים שהכתובות שייכות לרמאים.
Thanks for your your interest in the forthcoming conferences. Please see below detailed registration procedures and guidelines.
The Economics of Sustainability
A range of challenges from volatile oil and food prices, financial, economic and debt crises to climate change are threatening global efforts to achieve development that is sustainable, or that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. These multi-dimensional challenges do not have purely economic solutions, nor purely social or environmental ones. They require integrated solutions that combine economic, social and environmental elements.
The Global Research Consortium for Sustainable Development offers by far the best analysis of how the financial, economic and debt crisis will affect humanitarian and development funding and how to develop a counter-cyclical strategy building. The conference programme is dedicated to the current situation and offers an open international forum for the discussion of this topic. The aim is to establish new design perspectives and actions through dialogue with representatives from civil society, politics, economics, and science, individuals amongst others.

U.S ENTRY VISA (The Visa Waiver Program (VWP)
The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of 35 participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business (visitor [B] visa purposes only) for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa. The program was established in 1986 with the objective of eliminating unnecessary barriers to travel, stimulating the tourism industry, and permitting the Department of State to focus consular resources in other areas. VWP eligible travelers may apply for a visa, if they prefer to do so. Nationals of VWP countries must meet eligibility requirements to travel without a visa on VWP, and therefore, some travelers from VWP countries are not eligible to use the program. VWP travelers are required to have a valid authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to travel, are screened at the port of entry into the United States, and are enrolled in the Department of Homeland Security’s US-VISIT program.
In order to facilitate the US entry visa processing for those who are not eligible for the Visa Waiver Program, we have instructed our Logistics Department to resort to services of Attorney Charles Goldsmith, an immigration firm, based in the U.S to obtain registered delegates' visas. Mr. Charles Goldsmith will be acting as your representative attorney before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to secure your travel documents, especially your visa within a very short period of time (same day service).
For more information, we advise you to get in touch with Attorney Charles Goldsmith at:
Charles Goldsmith Law Office
14 Penn Plaza, Suite 1020
New York, NY 10122
New York, USA
Upon receipt of your visa application, the Legal consultant will submit it to the appropriate authorities in order to secure your travel documents in a very short period of time (same day service).
Due to time constraints, organizational imperatives and limited seats coupled with the fact that the sponsorship package is only availabe on first come, first served basis for late registrants, we strongly recommend that you complete your registration without further delay to enable us to act swiftly in enrolling you in our confirmed delegate's list.
