I have been contacted by a Bill Umstead of Y3 Ranches, LLC wanting to purchase mineral interest I own in Howard County. I wasn't aware I owned any. He said he had his land man found us thru titles and found my relatives this belongs to. He had all the right names of my grandfather, uncles, father, his sisters, me and my siblings. This is located in
Section 3, Block 33, Township 1 South in Howard County.
He wanted to buy these for $13,000.00. He said he can send papers and we will have a check next week. I don't think so. How do I find out if this is true or a scam? Also In the Houston Chronicle Sunday there is a huge write up about Howard County and the minerals there.The $13,000.00 sounds like a rip off if we do own the mineral rights compared to what is in the paper and the research we have found so far. We do not want to sell if they are truly ours, but interested in how to find out where this is and if we are legally heirs and how many acres are in this Section. Any help would be appreciated.
