Cyber Criminals Hijack Identities of Science Journals

Cyber Criminals Hijack Identities of Science Journals

Cyber criminals are stealing the identity of reputable science journals by creating fake web sites and using them to collect author fees, These fees disappear to Armenia and other countries. They most commonly target journals that lack dedicated websites of their
own. In some cases, such websites have collected author fees of up to 500 dollars from authors for a
paper that never gets published.
