Another fake academic conference

I just received an invitation to another fake academic conference, this one from an outfit called the National Social Science Association (hmmm....didn't know that philosophy was a social science, but I guess the group is all embracing) holding a meeting in Las Vegas (these bogus conferences are always in vacation locations---never in places like Milwaukee.) 
Dear Professor:
 
The National Social Science Association has been in existence for 33 years and is a growing interdisciplinary association that has served thousands of social scientists through its conferences and seminars and publications. The association has an executive director, a national office, officers, national board members as well as committee members from four and two year colleges across the nation. (www.nssa.us)
 
The association is now accepting proposals for its National Technology and Social Science Conference April 13-15, 2014 in Las Vegas at Harrahs Hotel and Casino, centrally located on the Las Vegas strip with the reduced hotel rate of $75 single or double which also applies to the Friday and Saturday before the conference begins. And all our conferences and seminars presentations are peer reviewed. Professors and students can earn one hour continuing education credit through the University of San Diego for this conference.
 And, guess what? They have a journal. On Bealle's list, of course.
