New World Oil & Gas - $4.8million from Niel Petroleum. Is it a loan? Is it an investment? Is it a fee? No, apparently it’s a gift!!!!

If you thought that sending €1million to a man you hadn’t completed due diligence on, in the hope of receiving $20million, was the height of stupidity, you’d be wrong. Taking €1million out of an escrow account, set up expressly for a deal that has failed to close after more than a year’s worth of delays, to pay said amount to said man, in the hope of receiving $20million, is probably a good deal more stupid. Yet this is exactly what New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) $1.75million a year board of directors did, at some point between the middle of May and end of June this year. Unless Niel Petroleum has taken leave of its senses and given, as a gift, this money to New World, this spells big trouble if Dr Alfahaid doesn’t soon make good on the $20million he was meant to have paid by August 8th.
