Victim of an unethical ND landman who tricked a sibling named 4th in line to be a 1998 Utah Trust Successor, into signing a proven never notarized Bakken mineral lease in July 2009 while overseas in Laos, instead of finding myself THE legal Successor, without all members ever having seen the Trust or its mineral deed ,and things got worse from that point forward, with lessee using the never valid 'lease' that he affidavited and got recorded, to get 2 of 5 members to ratify as individuals in October 2009 and the overseas pretended 'lessor' to then ratify as an individual in February 2010, and one member who was 3rd in line successor was not even told of this
'opportunity' to have leased only as an individual outside a Trust that all involved had never seen, and the 4th in line successor had the lessee send ratification forms and lease bonus check to the 5th in line successor, to do the landman's work for him ,and who sent my share to me, and I never had ratified due to fraud suspected [being given funds under a false pretext that there was a lease],and this 'disburser' did not tell the incarcerated 3rd in line successor, but used his $15,360 lease bonus to buy rare coins that were only worth $9,000. Then after 6 wells were in production with royalty held out without interest, due to an unspecified title problem, after 3 years worth of past production , the fake lessor, who was kept shown on well logs as lessor, was notified to use a lawyer the producer had on retainer to try to fix the title problem, which entailed plunder of the 1998 Trust minerals that the mineral deed had not described accurately,
'quieting' what was never explained, and conveying all into a 2003 Utah trust that never should have seen the light of day, because the real estate it was formed to convey on 6/7/2006, had previously been deeded to the recipient on 4/19/2000, and could only be in a 2003 'will/trust' because the deed holder had never recorded the 2000 Utah deed, while receiving rental income,
until the house was sold on 7/11/2006, pursuant of the 2003 trustee's deed for the house the trust could not legally have owned.
The resurrected 2003 trustee over what it now owned in early 2013 [plundered 1998 minerals not even validly leased], after being devoid of any asset since the house deed on 6/7/2006, was then ordered by the lawyer who placed in a finding of fact for the 1/3/13 hearing judge to rubberstamp that my presence and objection by trying to save the 1998 Trust that I had only learned I was the Successor of in October 2012, was deemed a 'contest' of our Mother's final wishes in the 2003 'will/trust' that never had owned any minerals ,nor was it intended to do so,but because the offer by this corrupt conflicted lawyer to have all converted from 1998 Trust to 2003 trust members sign some kind of waiver to let me own my 76.8 mineral acres was ignored,trustee's mineral deed on 8/1/2013 omitted me as a mineral property owner, and I have to use lawyers in my attempt to be made whole.

What makes this site so great? Well, I think it's the fact that, quite frankly, we all have a lot at stake in this thing they call shale. But beyond that, this site is made up of individuals who have worked hard for that little yard we call home. Or, that farm on which blood, sweat and tears have fallen.[ Read More ]
