The form D indicates that the sales compensation recipient for this offering was Reef Securities.
Alternative investments such as these, have high sales commissions and due diligence fees. These high commissions and fees can provide brokers with an enormous incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks. They may even focus on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks.
Unfortunately for investors, many oil and gas LPs are struggling to make distribution payments and some may end up defunct.
