Ooie tasuro

I guess Ooie Tasuro is on the move again. I received a 2nd email from him/her today with a cash offer on a sight-unseen property. So glad I googled the name. Thank you for this alert. Has anyone else heard from this scammer lately? I am still puzzled about what he/she has to gain.  Just glad I haven't wasted any more time on this craziness.

I am glad that you were not scammed. There are other people that have reported this here on Zillow and keeping the email addresses and reports fresh helps other people who google avoid the scam.

Just received an email from him/her yesterday, and immediately suspected a scam. The first tip was his request for me not to call him due to his accent and broken English. The next tip was cash sale. Curious, I immediately googled his name and was sent to this site. Thanks for having this available.

This scam is played out in numerous forms. Many times the buyer is of Asian decent and is from Canada.  They provide MLS numbers of listings, attorney contact info., phone number and want you to use Docusign.

The scam is that they get someone to handle the transaction and to send the earnest money to.  Then they cancel the deal and ask for the earnest money back.  They have sent a fake check, and the pigeon has sent back a real check.  Believe it or not, it works as many have fallen for it or else they wouldn't continue to do it.

Check out any internet lead carefully before getting involved.

Another thing they try to do is they send MORE earnest money than is required, then ask the agent to please (quicikly) send back the overage.

One agent on another site almost fell for it, and did deposit the earnest money check. Of course, the check bounced...she is lucky the bank didn;'t charge them a bounced check fee.

If it sounds too good to be true, and especially if  it arrives via the internet - it IS too good to be true!

Now he's in Oklahoma City! I got the same "business" from him -- cash sale for close to list price, subject only to inspections, $50,000 earnest money ...  Says he's from Toronto but he's in Japan working right now and doesn't have scan capabilities so send everything in DocuSign. Thanks for all this info.  We need to keep each other aware of these scams!!

Thanks for continuing to raise awareness of this scam. Scammers will use the name of a respected company or organization to make their message seem legitimate. Know who you are dealing with in online transactions before you sign a contract online.

For more information, take a look at a blog post we've published on this topic.

If you need more help, please reach out to us here or on the DocuSign Community.

Best,

An - DocuSign Social Media

Christine -- Just curious -- did the check clear? I'm baffled at what his "angle" is.  I just can't imagine what he hopes to get out of this!
