Olympic Tickets Scam Surfaces

The Better Business Bureau says emails are showing up in inboxes saying you have won tickets to the 2012 Olympics in London. Officials say this is a phishing scam, and the prize of the tickets is the hook to lure you into giving scam artists your personal information.

The scam uses the United Kingdom National Lottery logo to make the email look legitimate.

Please note: if you search "London, Olympics and lottery," you'll find that tickets to the 2012 Olympics will be given away through London's National Lottery.
