Oct 19, 2023

In this episode we discuss a few "common" scams targeting mineral and royalty owners.  From, exhorbitant finder's fees to help you find and claim missing royalties, the "royalty lease" scam that gets you to sell your future royalties for pennies on the dollar, to fraudlent deeds, we cover what you should know to protect yourself and your family from those seeking to prey on unsuspecting mineral and royalty owners.  As always, links to the resources mentioned in this episode can be found in the show notes at

At the end of the day, the best way to protect yourself from these types of issues is to arm yourself with knowledge.  My new online course, Mineral Management Basics, teaches you step-by-step the process of finding out exactly what you own and where it is located. With high-quality videos (that aren’t too long) and examples along the way, you’ll be able to locate your mineral and royalty interests on a map, perform your own title search, and identify nearby oil and gas activity.  Learn more here and signup today!
