Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"conference scam", where I am invited to a conference for free. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will not attend the conference, because it never existed. If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage
to read more about 419 fraud.

In response to your mail and why you are asked to pay for your reservation in advance. From the agreement reached between the management of this hotel and World Youth Organization, all prospective participants are required to book their reservation with us, obtain a reservation confirmation letter which we supposed to forward back to Organization Head office in New York for your registration.
Since we expect thousands of participants from different countries to attend the conference and there limited number of rooms avaliable within the organizational recommended hotels, for us to be sure of individual seriousness to attend the conference, we demand that each participant pay for their reservation in advance. It is now a part of our agreed rule with the Organization that all participants will have to confirm their hotel room reservation by paying for it in advance.
(1) After booking your reservation, we are required by the contract we signed with World Youth Organiztaion to sent them a copy of your reservation confirmation receipt to confirm that your reservation has been made with us.
(2) No staff of our hotel is allowed by law to sign a reservation confirmation receipt for a client without the full payment of the reservation.Therefore you are required to book your reservation and pay in full before we can issue you the receipt confirmation.
If there is something you must clear, its between you and the organization and not we the hotel managements.
We work hard to serving you better.
