It's interesting. It's the new thing. I get spammed by these at work, maybe several a month now. It's more sophisticated than usual: they take the same name as legit conferences but with a very slight variation, copy or invent badges and affiliations, and are (supposedly) in unusual, remote, but attractive places. Web sites are well done at first glance, although it doesn't take long to figure they are slightly off in every respect, and always in the same format. Of course you need to pay to register, which will go straight to Joan who works for the famous organization Jay can you take down the impostor please. 

And by the way, don't forget, I am organizing an IEEE Conference on Upside Down Pancakes in Peru in 2018. I haven't had the time to make the website yet but you can already send your money to me. I am not affiliated with Joan but my email ends with just the same, so you are in good hands.
