Menzgold’s woes

According to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Menzgold is not licensed to deal in the purchase and deposit of gold collectables from the public.

Menzgold until it was shut down was dealing in the purchase and deposit of gold collectables from the public and issuing contracts with guaranteed returns with clients.

The SEC said this contravened “section 109 of Act 929 with consequences under section 2016 (I) of the same Act.”

The company was however cleared to continue its “other businesses of purchasing gold from small-scale miners and export of gold.”

It has however failed to fully pay its numerous aggrieved customers the value on their gold deposits as well as their entire investments.

Customers have demonstrated and held press conferences to get their monies back over the past years.
