Hello and thanks to grammalu and catalley for their additional posts to my "dealing with father's anger" post of yesterday.

I just wanted to tell you a bit more about the actual scheme in which my father is investing money.

I'd be interested in knowing the name of the company.

Hi again

No offense, but yes, you do need to drop it.

Dear Cat Alley,

If you'd like the name of the company, I would prefer to send it in a personal message.

Dear Azure,

Believe me, no offense taken! This whole experience has been too much. On top of everything else, I have health problems which make avoiding stress a good idea! I appreciate your advice! Thank you.

Absolutely. Send me the name of the company through a PM.

I understand you don't owe your old man anything at this time.... but curiousity would get the best of me, if I were in your position.

My father owns a business buying mineral leases/rights, and my brother works for a huge oil and gas company that buys them. Never heard of buying land as well as the mineral rights.

And even as much as he ticked you off, maybe he would eventually see the light about this company and save your inheritance, if nothing else, lol!!

All I know is that the person with whom I spoke said that her parents had bought some land through the company, and that all of the oil wells they had drilled had run dry. My father is investing in the company's drilling operations.
Forgive my ignorance, but how do I send you a PM?

Hello again. I figured out how to send a PM, and sent you the name of the company. Wonder if your brother or father have ever heard of this company.

Give me a couple of days to get back to you, ok?

Of course, no rush at all. I have no idea whether my father has already invested with the company, but whether he has or hasn't, it will be very interesting to get some feedback from those in the industry. I bet there's a good chance that your father and brother haven't heard about this little company; it's very small potatoes. Thank you again!
