This is to recap my complaints against Scott Michael Tassone; a (former) California licensed real estate salesperson, for both ''supposed'' business loans and real estate transactions while he was licensed with the Department of Real Estate. The business loans were designated for interest/partnership in two real estate properties for investment purposes. The real estate transaction was for the sale of my personal property, a condominium known as ***** Santa Ana, CA.

I have a very large collection of files from my dealings with this man, including phony contracts, meaningless signed notes promising to repay me monies conned from me, documented emails, as well as receipts from attorney fees trying to get justice for myself! I'm not posting these documents here, however, will be more than happy to share them with any attorneys, law enforcement, or other entities interested in pursing common interests with either collecting due monies or prosecution for him breaking laws.

The following is a brief synopsis:

Business Loans to Mr. Tassone from myself:

10/4/03 - $5,000 loaned for property known as ***** Brea, CA - promised $7,000 return by 1/4/04. Agreement by handwritten, signed note.

10/13/03 - $1,000 loaned for property known as ***** Anaheim, CA - promised ***''to be determined'' as 1/3 profit from sale of property. Agreement by handwritten, signed note.

10/28/03 - $2,600 loaned - promised ***''to be determined'' as 1/3 profit from sale of property, same as above 10/13/03. Agreement by handwritten, signed note.

10/31/03 - $600 loaned by check - repaid by check for $850.00, which was returned, marked ''No Account/Unable to Locate''.

1/7/04 - I received $3,000 for partial payment of above transactions. (Proves admittance of loans)

[***Total ''to be determined'' amount to be no less than $13,000.]

Real Estate Transaction - Personal Property known as ***** Santa Ana, CA:

Mr. Tassone coerced me into canceling a listing agreement with another real estate broker, whom, I was told, at that time, was in the process of filing a legal suit against Mr. Tassone for doing so.

I was then presented a Purchase Agreement for said property by Mr. Tassone, dated 12/5/03 to close escrow in 30 days or less. However, because of the pending legal suit against him, as referenced above, Mr. Tassone delayed the closing of the property, stringing me along day after day with lie after lie, until I cancelled an escrow, which was never really an escrow, effective the end of February, early March '04. Mr. Tassone's intentions of completing this sale are also confirmed by a certified appraisal arranged by him in November 2003.

Ultimately, to complete this sale, I had to relist this property with another realtor. During this time lapse, because of Mr. Tassone's broken contracts and promises, I incurred extra expenses in the amount of $13,000.

Summary:

Mr. Tassone committed a criminal offense by knowingly writing a bad check, made contracts and promises in writing he did not keep, and acted unprofessionally and illegally according to the rules and practices of the California Department of Real Estate, as well as the laws of the State of California.

Business Loans -- Promised No Less Than: $17,600

Real Estate Transaction - Personal Property: $13,000 loss

Grand Total: $30,600 PLUS ATTORNEY & COURT FEES

February '05 I was awarded a Default Judgment from Mr. Tassone by the Superior Court of California in the amount of $11,100 for the scams of his business deals, plus fees, to total $12,343.50. As of this date, I have not been able to recover any of these monies.

I have suffered a great deal of financial hardship, as well as much emotional anguish, from my dealings with Mr. Tassone, I pray that some day in some way he will be repaid for his deeds. And, yes, I feel like an idiot for ever trusting this idiot in the first place. I offer this as a warning for others. Should anything ever happen to me, you should check this person first.

Hopefully, you have been able to collect judgement from Scott Michael Tassone since your initial posting.  Fortunately, the State of California allows you to add 10% interest per year to the judgement, so the total amount due will stack quickly.

If you have been unable to collect, you can find useful information on how to collect online at:
