I have received a couple calls from past clients regarding communication received from "oil and gas companies". Are they real? Is it a scam?
They draw you in with --- a bonus by signing, and you will receive up to 19% of the profit from the production from drilling under your home.
That all sounds good --- but you also have to sign a W-9 with your social security number. Are they working on gaining your personal information?
I spoke with a real estate attorney, and said there are some companies doing "slant or directional drilling", and could be real, but she wanted to see the communication and company that is offering this "deal".
My client said the HOA has held meeting for the homeowners regarding this offering, so my clients think it is real. My client is communicating with the attorney, as this is out of my hands.
Time will tell whether this is real, or just another scam!
