Common sense would also save people from losing money. If you didn't enter a recent lottery, then you obviously didn't win a lottery.

Another tip would be that if you won the lottery here, WHY would you need to send money to a foreign country?

I have to laugh at the people who fall for these things. It doesn't take much brain power to know it's a scam.

These kind of scams - the ones that "require" you to shell-out some bucks,-- have been around for DECADES !!!!

HOW F-KING STUPID do you have to be -- 10 or 20 years later,-- to fall for it?!!!

This kind of thing is not new.
It requires it's victims to be ignorant regarding similar scams that heve been going-on for decades !!!
