Global Youth Organisation for Human Development

This is almost certainly an advance fee fraud scam in which the (fictional) conference is just an excuse to extract money from interested parties. The domain name "gyofhd.org" is registered to a party in Lagos, Nigeria, the world capital of advance fee fraud.

I am unhappy that internet and our inboxes are filled with such spams and invitations but there is no real opportunity and offers. I have been working over internet for last four years. I have noted that response over internet is extremely discouraging. Visit my website for such information which did not bring any response at all.

I am from South Africa, and also received the above invitation, and had even a few e-mails with Dr Peters. He even sent me a website address.
It's a shame that they try to steal from people who wants to make a difference in other's future. Hope the listed sponsors on the website (Coca Cola, Microsoft and other BIG names - about 50 companies - track them down for using their name in a fraud sceme.

I'm from the Philippines and have received the same invitation from a certain Sonia. Wish these people find something more decent to do rather than wasting other people's time and emotion. Who would ever pay for all your expenses to the US and Athens especially in times like this when we are suffering from global financial crisis?

nightlight said...

This is Ahmed from Morocco.
the mail is just scam. how did they get your email address? you probably give it away subscribing to some website or forum, or they may just used an email generator. DONT EVER REPLY TO THEIR MAIL,THEY WILL KNOW THAT'S AN EXISTING AND VALID EMAIL ADDRESS AND SPAM YOU BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN,USING OTHER WAYS.
This blog,The Conference Con, is made specially to uncover this kind of scam. so it's normal you land on it when you googled some parts of the received email.

CON : If someone cons you, they persuade you to do something or believe something by telling you things that are not true.
INFORMAL
(=cheat, trick) .

///for Dana Jamil/// dont you understand that's bullshit?
dont ever publish information on yourself if you dont want to get into troubles. i just googled your name, plz see results here: http://www.google.co.ma/search?q=dana+jamil&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:fr:official&client=firefox-a

As someone says:why do you think that someone is gonna invite you to the US and pay your plane ticket your hotel and your drinks?
wake up!
hopefully this will help some people to have the will to wake up early and go to work, than hope for a "raining gold" day

sThe scam below almost made me believe that this world is safe from fraud.

Dear Applicant,
By recommendation, we accept you to participate in the forth-coming conferences, which will be held from January 19th - 22nd 2009 at California at Anaheim California in the United States and in, Dakar Senegal from 26th - 29th January 2009 at OLYMPIC STADIUM HALL, DAKAR-SENEGAL, West -Africa.



We are accepting you to partake because you were recommended by one of our members. You may take the opportunity to participate in these International events. The theme of the forth coming International Conferences is to equip participants with the strategies and policies to wage a global war against Racism & Child Abuse.. These events are being Organized and sponsored by the GLOBAL YOUTH ORGANIZATION (GYO) in collaboration with other benevolent organizations in the United States of America.



The International Conference on Racism and Child Abuse shall be of high significance for the international community because the issues it will address are evils which we must combat with all our power; because racism and Child Abuse-manifesting themselves through discrimination and all forms of intolerance are the wellsprings of many of the world's conflicts; because they are a key element of the vicious cycle of poverty and social exclusion; and because these forces run directly contrary to the fundamental message of human rights which is that every member of the human family has equal and inalienable rights.


Despite continuing efforts by the international community, racial discrimination, ethic conflicts and widespread violence persist in various parts of the world in recent years, the world has witnessed Campaigns of ethnic cleansing". Racial minorities, migrants, asylum seekers and indigenous peoples are persistent targets of intolerance. Millions of human beings continue to encounter discrimination solely due to the colour of their skin or other factors that indicate the race to which they belong. Effective and early action, as well as early warning measures, is required to prevent the growth of ethnic Hatred and potential violent conflicts.



The International Conferences against Racism & Child Abuse will be a unique opportunity to create a new world vision for the fight against racism and racial discrimination in the new millennium. In order to have a real impact, the Conference should not only promote greater awareness concerning the scourge of racism but also lead to decisive action at the international level in order to help those who suffer on a daily basis from racism and racial discrimination. Concerted efforts and contributions by individuals, Governments, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations and the various international bodies and specialized agencies will be necessary to accomplish the objectives of the Conferences, and to provide long-lasting solutions. It will also afford participants to meet the donor communities, strike Affiliations and partnerships and explore better ways of sourcing funds for their various activities among others.



The conference organizing committee in-conjunction with the donor sponsoring committee has mapped out awards and gifts will be given to participants on merit. You are hereby advised to equip yourselves and
Exhibit your God given talents to the fullest. We welcome delegations, inter-governmental and non-governmental Organizations to the International Conference against Racism and Child Abuse. This is the start of the formal phase of the Conference process, although a number of useful informal meetings have already taken place in different parts of the world we expect that this event can and should give a powerful impetus to the work of laying the foundations for a successful combat against Racism and Child Abuse.

REGISTRATION OF PARTICIPANTS:
Only a minimum of five (5) or a maximum of ten (10) persons are expected to participate together as a group or organization to represent their Country in the forth-coming events. You are also welcome as an individual if you want to partake as a single person. No participant should be less than eighteen years of age and must participate in both Conferences. It is not necessary that one must belong to an organization to be eligible to attend this event. They should be in possession of their international passports to enable them participate in this conferences. For registration to participate in this event, you may forward the names and passport numbers of your group members to us, as soon as possible, as all participants visa assistance request will be forwarded to the U.S Department of State for same day visa Authorization which shall be sent by fax to the consular section of the U.S. Embassy, in your country of residence. All registered participants are entitled to a round trip air tickets, meals and accommodation during their stay in the U.S.


Delegates will only be responsible for their own hotel booking in Dakar-Senegal where the second phase of the conference will be held due to the inability of our partner organizations to mobilize enough funds to sponsor the number of expected delegates to attend both conferences.


An Official letter of Invitation will be sent to delegates who require Visa to the United States by this Organization after they are registered. And the Visa authorization letter will be fax directly by the attorney general to the U.S Ambassador in your country of residence once it has been approved by him. You will be informed by the attorney general before your visit to the embassy. Same information in your passport should be used to fill be Visa form which will be sent to you by the attorney general.



Be informed that the closing date for registration is close by, if you are interested in participating, I will advice you send the below information to our registration desk for proper acknowledgement.

You must send to us the following information about yourself or group members:

1) Names exactly as in passport.

You will have to make your message clearer so that people like Dana Jamil get it. THERE ARE NO CONFERENCES.

What's worrying is that they will improve, and get rid of all those giveaways like "I am Brandy Morgan, female" and "Youths" till even fluent English speakers are fooled. They'll also tap into messages you have written to make it look as though they really know who you are and what you're interested in.

What's with saying they are having two conferences in different countries? Is that just so you'll give them more personal infomation? Or so you'll hand over money for "accomodation in Senegal"?

(I'm in New Zealand, the message was from "Brandy Morgan" and the conferences were supposed to be in California and Senegal, starting less than 3 weeks from now.)

How can someone go onto the net and write these lies? For money, of course. Scammers tend to think that if you fall for their scam, then you deserve to lose whatever money you send them.

I am in New Zealand pursuing higher studies and received the mail about a conference in the states. Judging from the point of view of the short period of time between now and the conference, it is unlikely that visa arrangements could be made.
And, expenses, ticketing and accommodationand travel will cost a substantial amount so unless this is s genuine offer I am skeptical
I suspect there is something not quite straight going on. The Web site is true though

Attn Friends,
I just got another mail concerning youths conference holding in uk . i was opportune to attend the last 2 editions ,which was great experience and full of fun ,but am now confused and surprised that on my research in Google i came across a lot of bad comments on the comment board concerning the conference .does it mean that there is no real youths conference? did the commenter actually try the conference to see if they are frauds? because i know that evil people exists and also good people exists too .in my own opinions i think the right things to do is to watch the invitation to see if is real or not before condemning .After all the conference is not asking for money ,they are only asking for participation .though they many be some bad one but there is also so good one too.

HI dear friends: This scamming continues also in August 2009

I am from Armenia and this scam reached already to my country to Caucasus. I have got this in August 2009, the same invitation only from so called Janet Braily and they even have a web site when you enter there and find more detailed information. But this kind of invitations are really so srtange:

a) how they know you are youth?
b. why some orgnization must host a group free of charge
c. why they are not interested who are you, what is our job, why and how they know you fit their conference profile, etc, etc.

For me is good that in this network so many people shared their opinions helping the new users who are still being cheated to save their time for research and helping them to understand that not only me have been cheated but thousands of people from all over the world. Firstly, after realizing that you have been fallen in a stupid situation, believed, became happy and even react to this stupid invitation giving more information about you, you became terribly upset and crashed. But when I read in some comments humourous comments that some day Obama will invite us to conferences, or other jokes I understand tow things:
a. life always makes trics on you, you must keep your humour and even enjoy because if you input emotions to something it is good adrenaline and this means you live as this is life long learning. And this was a good lesson for me which is not with strict results to understand that we must not believe to everything which seems alluring from the first impression. You must suspend everything to find the truth, as while we suspend we live. Life never gives us gifts though people used to believe to miracles and unexpected succsesses. I decided to share my comment with you just to deliever a message that we have not to suffer from things which hurt us but to start to learn from situations and react to everything which plays on our emotions with humour. Best always, Marianna

But a lack of website and phone number, all kinds of freebees and the lack of addressing me with my name made me double check. They're smart...

My organization the AKAP BATA PHILIPPINES received an email today stating the same invitation regarding a conference that is sponsored by the World YOuth Organization for Human Welfare. The letter said to look for the website of the said organization and when i did that, all scam letters popped up.

Me and the members of AKAP BATA are really interested in attending international conferences and the fact that the conference of this so called World YOuth Organization will be held on Dec. 1- 14 in California and in Senegal of the same date, it posted a query on my part because the processing of the papers and visas are too close.

It is a relief that the said letter is a scam! Thanks for the warning.

Here is the full text of the said invitation:

Is there a way such hopeless, frustrated and dissappointed worng doers can be accessed?????????? Are they from Lagos, the world capital of fraud or kampala the second farud city????? or its from those hopeless people in the US?

Guys be careful coz one day they will get you and charge with something you dont know. Those guys will use your information and where abouts to do illegal work. Unfortunately, many young young people are submitting their personal information to these guys.

CAn u imagine....we need an online sensitisation and awareness. Otherwise, young people will be given US green cards, some will be recruited in the US army and others will win billions of dollars in the UK. Watch out, coz something more is on the way.................

TAke care and advise each other

ow funny, I am Nigerian, living in Nigeria, and I received this mail, with a LinkedIn background, just to make me believe it;s a secured connection, but the tone of the mail gives him away anyways.

Quite unfortunate, these infidels keep giving away our country as the capital of advanced fee fraud. Many, even Nigerians would succumb to this, seeing the provision of airfare, accommodation and other listed therein. But I blame this on either of poverty or greed.

I hope they get caught soon though.
