Reef O&G $22 million $6.7million 31%
Reef O&G II $20 million $3.2 million 16%

Since the product being sold (oil and gas) is a depleting asset, there is less to sell with each passing day and these returns suggest that investors may have to wait a very long time to recover their invested capital or worse yet, investors may never recover their initial investment.
Investments like this are risky and brokers have a duty not to make investment recommendations that are not suitable, taking into account the age, health, prior investment experience of the investor and ability of the investor to sustain loss.
