Can the Queen be saved from this one? As the London Olympics draw ever closer, a new cyberscam is targeting users of social networking giant Facebook, offering tickets to the Games “courtesy” of Queen Elizabeth II.

“To explain their noble-mindedness and make the Facebook scam more credible, pranksters use another en vogue social engineering trick, claiming the ‘chance’ to get free tickets is due to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,” BitDefender said in its HotForSecurity blog post.

But as with past scams, BitDefender said the Olympics tickets are fake, and the scam may lead prospective victims to malware.
