We (my family) were recently approached by an individual who claimed to be representing EOG. She provided documents showing we inherited the mineral rights to some land in Fowlerton, TX. and offered us a lease; 3yr/$1000 an acre plus 25% royalties.
We noticed her e-mail was a g-mail account and the phone number, which does work, is a personal cell. It's almost as if she's working from home.
Does this sound kosher? Could she actually be an independent agent working on EOG's behalf?
There was no mention of any processing fees or other red flag items like that, but I guess I would expect an office phone number and a corporate e-mail account.
