It's a Scam!

warning to those who are listed on the Youthworks recommended speakers page (http://www.youthworks.net/index.php?c=24&d=880&w=7000&r=Y) - there's an email scam targetting you as it has targetted others overseas (google London youth conference scam).

They say you've been selected to come and speak at a conference in London, all expenses paid!

The catch is they will then ask for your credit card number to get a UK Visa. and then, KAPOW, they go shopping!

So, even though getting invited to an international conference sounds like an appropriate recognition of your exceptional gifts... this one may not be the best invitation to follow up on!

Here's the email:
