How many times have you been approached by an oil contact who swears black and blue that they have a “real” buyer or seller.
For me it’s an old story, that has been repeated way too many times, and almost every time it has proven that the contact is fake …. the buyer or seller is not real, they waste my time and resources and then expect next time they come back with a contact, with an enquiry that they will be treated with the same credibility.
What I don’t understand is that they accept what their contact, a intermediary or somepne who says they are a buyer or seller without any verification. The contact takes it from their in box and sends it to me, without doing anything, and expects that is good enough, it’s not, due diligence is the first step, nothing happens until its done and we have a positive outcome.
