WARNING! Another online-scamming “modus operandi” is victimizing people online these days with new tricks.
The online scammers are pretending to be organizing a global congress or an international conference where they are inviting victims to join, offering assisted visa processing to US, plus free tickets.
What they do is to actually spark your interest in the said conference and ask you for a registration fee for the conference that is actually bogus. So please be very careful when you receive FB Messages, or emails or in any mode of communications like this one below:

They use pretty much the same antics before, targeting professionals who are interested in attending overseas conference / seminars / training.
Their invitation looks really reliable and real since they put in their program the speakers name who are really experts in such field, with those speakers knowing that their names are being used by these bogus online scammers.
Those who have been victimized by the said antic have paid for the conference/seminar/training’s registration fee, and when they fly to the said country for the conference, they were shocked that no conference has actually been arranged.
So let’s be very careful with these new kind of online scamming!
