This FAKE CONFERENCE offers "Free" grant money for attendees of the conference. The scammers require advance hotel payment (for a non-existent hotel) in exchange for the "free" airline tickets that do not exist.
The SCAM claims:
"Working Group on Climate Change had involved numerous donors to make it possible to offer access grants to as many participants as possible from developing countries to enable them to participate in the International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Sciences (ICSEES'12). However, the limited support can only be offered to any delegate or group of delegates who have submitted one or more abstracts to the scientific program and sent a motivation letter requesting such financial support to the ICSEES'12 Local Organizing Committee. Such support will cover free registration, air tickets, travel insurance, visa fees and per diem."
