It seems that almost every week a new question pops up and ends up on the hot network questions list, all of them being basically
Someone I recently met online wants to send me free money. All I have to do is give him the password to my bank account, or pay some fees first, or send part of the money somewhere. Is it a scam?
Sometimes they are marked as a duplicate, other times they are not. Or before that happens, a lot of people waste a lot of lines answering what has been answered dozens of times before.
Please don't get me wrong, it is very important that we help people to not fall victim to scammers. But couldn't we make it more efficient? Maybe by adding a general, short but understandable answer, and always linking to it? Or adding some tool, like when a question can be protected for too many "thank you" and "me too" answers by new users?
Maybe an automatic "are you sure?" style slider could pop up when the question is being typed, similar to what we can see on other sites which use heuristics to detect possible opinion-based questions, based on some frequently used words.
