Watch Out for Queen Elizabeth II Related Scams

Last week, news stories announced that Queen Elizabeth II, who is known for having the longest reign of any British monarch, passed away at 96 years old. When an influential figure such as the queen passes away, people across the world will be interested in reading more about their life and death.

Cybercriminals take advantage of high-profile news stories to catch your attention and manipulate your emotions. In the coming weeks, we expect to see cybercriminals referencing the queen’s death in phishing attacks and social media disinformation campaigns.

Follow these tips to stay safe from these scams:

  • Always think before you click. Cyberattacks are designed to catch you off guard and trigger you to click impulsively. 
  • Be suspicious of emails, texts, and social media posts that contain shocking information about this event. These may lead to disinformation, which is false information designed to mislead you.

If you receive a suspicious email, follow your organization’s procedure to report the email.


Stop, Look, and Think. Don’t be fooled.
