Whatever happened with the Glencrest Resourse situation I have not heard anything but what was read on the star telegram blog at Typepad. I am a Forest Hill resident who signed with Glencrest, didn't know nothing about a class action suit, am I too late to get in on it. Ms. Davis

The paper says Glencrest leases span several communities. What NAs' are involved in Forest Hill does anyone know. I live in the Heritage Addt and havn't a clue

Turn your lease problems with Brisco &
Glencrest over to the DA.

I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER NOW THAT I AM WITH DALE..! AND IM HAPPY TO REPORT, TO DEAR MR BRISCOE-->> DALE IS ''NOT'' GIVING $ 300 SIGN ON ..! I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW IF ANYONE WITH GLENCREST HAVE RECEIVED A CHECK YET.! FYI;; I PASS THE NEW LOCATION FOR GLENCREST RESOURCES FROM TIME TO TIME, ITS SOME AWFULLY NEW AND EXPENSIVE SUV'S OUT FRONT.! HUMMM. MAKES ME WONDER AFTER BRISCOES ATTORNEY MR DRUMM TOLD ME '' AS OF DECEMBER, ''IF'' ANY MONEY IS SECURED BY GLENCREST, THE BILLS FOR GLENCREST WILL BE PAID FIRST; IE; DAVID DRUMM, AND GLENCREST EMPLOYEES..'' HUMM, EMPLOYEES, WOULD THAT BE THE BRISCOE FAMILY THAT RUN THE OFFICE..? HUMM.. WELL, I THINK THEY GOT PAID..

I doubt that Dale is taking a gamble that Glencrest won't get it's act together - Dale is trying to help those that were taken advantage of by an unscrupulous person. Should they not have the right to participate in the revenue that their property sits on? If Glencrest never filed the documents with the County Clerks office and 6 months or more had past - Thank goodness Dale was willing to step in and take that gamble on behalf of these people. Glencrest never had any intensions of honoring those leases - only scamming the people. This is not Leonard Briscoe's first offense of illegal activity, but that's another story.

This is an example of people signing for the wrong reasons, not the evil oil companies taking advantage of poor Mr. Humphries. As these people found out, the most bonus is not always the best. Even if these people did get paid, that would have probably been the end of the money because Glencrest had no intention of drilling a well. The fact that someone is local or an African-American is not a good enough reason to sign a lease, unless you just want to make an already wealthy person even wealthier.

Janna is wrong. Dale has actual knowledge of the prior lease, so the fact that Glencrest did not file is not relevant as to them. Dale is probably gambling that Glencrest will never get its act together enough to make an issue of it, but if they do then the fantasy of the "automatic termination" will not hold up.

I signed with Glencrest Resources Feb.19,2007 and waited and waited for a check. I finally called months later and was given the usual excuses and I just decided to wait it out longer, knowing they had verbally said we would get a check after signing within 3 to 4 weeks, they would obviously be in default anyway and I just assumed after such a long period of time when I was ready, I could re-sign with another company. I gave them every opportunity to take care of business, and finally in Sept.'07 I was contacted by Dale Property Services. I imediately told them about my issues with the Glencrest signing and they said that may not be a problem, they typed in my property address on their laptop and quickly said you're good to go, your property has never been filed yet. Apparently if they have not filed the document, and this much time has passed, another Co. can sign and file you, atleast thats what Dale did on mine. I assume they know what they're doing, after all they gave me my sign up bonus check, and I don't think they want to lose that money, so surely this or something like this has happened before, and they know the law regarding these issues - nonetheless, I am now with Dale. The important thing is have they filed your information yet? By now they probably have, but it wouldn't hurt to check. As far as this attorney, I dont see where you would need one, if Glencrest is in default on this contract as they are.

Look at the other comments about this lawsuit on the other article
about this lawsuit !!!

B. Humphries

If this is true, GOOD JOB ROSA !!! I have been telling everyone to
watch their backs on this blog. This is just another sorry example
of WHY.

**** BEFORE ANYONE SIGNS THE CONTRACT WITH JOHN HART, ''READ''READ''READ IT VERY CAREFULLY FIRST..! GRAB YOUR CALCULATOR, HAVE JOHN HART ON THE PHONE AND GET HIM TO EXPLAIN HIS FEE.. HE WANTS 25 % OF YOUR SIGN ON BONUS 'AND' 25 % OF YOUR ROYALTY OVER THE LIFE OF YOUR LEASE, ''NOT'' THE 3-5 YEARS TO DRILL BUT, MOST OF THE LEASES ARE AROUND 25 YEARS IF MINERALS ARE FOUND, WITH MONTHLY ROYALTY AND HE WANTS 25% OF IT FOR 25 YEARS.! JUST TO GET A PIECE OF PAPER BACK FOR YOU..! SOUNDS LIKE, WE WILL ALL COME OUT BETTER IF WE JUST SIT BACK, HANG ON, AND LET GLENCREST RESOURCES BACK OUT THE DEAL. THEN, WE ARE FREE OF THIS LEASE.
