The Chairman of the Gold Exporters Association Kwabena Asante Asare said the scammers are painting a bad picture of the industry.
In an interview with Accra-based Starr FM, the Chairman of the Association Kwabena Asante Asare said the scammers are painting a bad picture of the industry.
“These scammers in the system are more than the genuine gold exporters and sometimes I tend not to blame the scammers….these are businessmen coming from outside with funds and if you come to Ghana and you say you want to buy 1 ton of gold or 1000kg, AngloGold Ashanti they don’t have that but then a small Ghanaian sitting in front of you and negotiating 1 ton of gold with you when market price is around $45,000.00 he is offering you $20,000 and you cannot even make that profit in Cocaine so is worst”.
