They almost had me I thinking 2 weeks ago? It was a signed document but from someone I didn't know & didn't have a property name attached to it. I let it sit for 3 days & then deleted it. No agent obviously called to ask why I ignored their offer.

This is pretty scary, and shows how technology can make lives easier and ruin lives at the same time.  Even if just emails are compromised, hackers now have a trustworthy name to use in phishing schemes.

I do not use Docusign, but the digital signature that comes with CAR zipforms. They are probably too little for hackers at the moment.

Hi Ryan,  I did have one of those e-mails come in, and wished there was an easy way to send a fireball back at them.

We use a "throw-away" e-mail address for DocuSign thus, thanks to your head's up it is time to generate a new e-email addy for DocuSign!
