The OMIC Group run dozens of sham conferences a year. Dragnet invitations, everybody's paper gets accepted, conference fees well over a thousand dollars (though honored 'speakers' are offered a 20% 'discount'--hurray!) For those with money still burning a hole in their pockets, they run lots of scam journals, too, and will publish your paper in an Open Access format for a publishing fee of more than a thousand dollars more. Oh, and if you want worldwide readership for your paper, they'll cheerfully run it through Google translate into as many as 50 languages. (Of course, that won't come cheap--more tens of hundreds of dollars for that, too.)
