Complaint / review text:
I am property manager for an elderly gentleman whose property is in a trust. David Chesher who lists himself as "Marshall Oil Corporation" wrote the trustee trying to get a lease of mineral interest, implying a well was proposed on his legal description. There is no "intent to drill" or "application for permit to drill" filed with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. Actually, nothing has been done in this location since 1970 in which a dry hole was produced. This happens often, especially with non-resident mineral owners. They send a unsigned "Authority for Expenditure" listing over a million dollars proposed and ask the owners for a check for their proposed share of the "well" which is non existent, or as an alternative they can lease their mineral interest for a very nominal sum to the company.
Beware and tell your elderly family members of this scam!!!
