- The text message that Menzgold sent to its clients has landed online
- It sought to inform customers of plans being made to pay dividends
- Menzgold Ghana Limited has resumed business after it went on suspension sanctioned by the SEC
YEN.com.gh has sighted a photo believed to be a screenshot of the text message sent to Menzgold clients across the country after the gold hub resumed its activities today [September 28] following a suspension.
According to the message, customers of the gold trading company were to visit their various branches to check the day to re-visit in order to collect their extra values.
The text message read, "Dear Valued customer, please be advised that those who did not receive their extravalues between the 28th Aug - 11th Sept, 2018, due to the delays in the process for the bank transfers should kindly visit their branches tomorrow at 1pm to check their payment schedules and adhere to it for prompt payment. Thank you."
Menzgold Ghana Limited set out a payment schedule starting Friday, September 28, 2018, to pay customers their dividends after a press conference was held.
The company has however, taken legal action against the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) following weeks of inconclusive discussions.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday September 27, the gold dealership firm said customers that were trading with them until September 12 were going to be paid.
Explaining this, Corporate Affairs Manager of Menzgold, Nana Yaw Ofei said persons who invested with them after September 12 were not going to be paid any returns because the company’s Gold Vault services were suspended during that period.
He stated that customers could visit their respective branches starting Friday to demand their matured investment.
“… We’ve set out a payment schedule starting tomorrow [Friday] to be circulated to all our customers. Customers are encouraged to only visit their branch on the date for their collection as the schedule will be strictly adhered to, to avoid crowding at the branches,” Mr. Yaw Ofei told the media.
“It is pertinent to note however that the period starting Wednesday 12th September to date while the Gold Vault Market has remained forcefully shut by the SEC regrettably shall not attract any forms of returns whatsoever, as the business of the gold trade has been and still is dormant.”
Meanwhile. some angry customers of the gold hub have threatened to beat up journalists who visited any premises of Menzgold Ghana Limited to report on the dividend payments.
Menzgold’s suit against the BoG and SEC is geared towards obtaining a court order to restrain the two bodies from interfering in its business.
Before Menzgold set its second date to resume operations on September 28, Ghanaian young millionaire, Ibrah One, indicated the he was going to take his life should the gold dealership firm bounce back.
Ibrah One earlier claimed that NAM1 had used Menzgold investors money on actors and musicians.
Nana Appiah Mensah however came back hard at Ibrah One and revealed why he was trying to discredit him.
