Want to go to the 2012 London Olympics? This email isn't your ticket

Beware London 2012 Olympics scams.
Beware London 2012 Olympics scams.

If you read an email that says you've won tickets to the 2012 Olympics in London, don't be fooled. It is yet another lure by scam artists intent on getting your personal information, the Better Business Bureau warns.

The BBB says the fake emails use the U.K. National Lottery logo making them look like they're legitimate. The emails tell recipients that their e-mails have been chosen as "one of 10 lucky winners." The emails instruct recipients to call a "global telephone" number and give their a lottery confirmation number for details about their winnings. Recipients are also instructed to send an email that includes their full name, address and date of birth.
