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.
