we are a community trust and we received the email attached below. we haven't send any details yet. we went online and found that such a world wide organisation website is still underconstruction. we think it is a fake and a fraud but then again they are not asking us for money. are they after identity. Please let us know.

By recommendation, we accept you to participate in the forth-coming conferences, which will be held from March 13th-15th 2007 at the DISNEYLAND CONVENTION CENTER, ANAHEIM, C.A, U.S.A. and March 20th-22nd 2007 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 WORLD YOUTH ORGANIZATION FOR HUMAN WELFARE (WYOFHW) 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.

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.

This ICORCAR conference is total fake and one of the internet fraud. Initially they don ask for mony but later they tell to book hotel at dakar senegal which i srequired to show that all of the members who are comiing to conference will also attend the conference at dakar senegal. then they will ask to book hotel and pay full amount. this is final step where you are trapped. I have been the victim of this Internet fraud and lost $1200.

If you in future receive any email like this inform or file compaint to IC3, The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).
