Defunct gold trading company Menzgold has announced plans to finalise payment of claims submitted by its customers but says 60% of them failed its validation for claims authenticity.
A statement by Menzgold CEO Nana Appiah Mensah (aka NAM1) said there were many defects with the claims submitted by some of the customers.
The statement mentioned "fake authorised signatures," and "fake supporting documents" among the 10 defects identified with the claims submitted by customers.
Below is a full list of the defects Menzgold said it identified during the validation process:
1. Irregularities or inconsistencies of the records on the face of the documents
2. Fake (fraudulent) supporting documents
3. Fake authorised signatures and/or official transactions endorsement stamps
4. Transactions that [have] exhausted 12 months cycle. Having earned over 100% extra value.
5. False claims (Misrepresentations)
6. Illegitimate claimant
7. Inadequate/incomplete claim supporting documents
8. Internally schemed and concerted transaction
9. Non-existent (fabricated) transaction
10. Transactions not approved by an Authorized Menzgold official
Customers of the defunct gold trading company were asked via a July 30 statement to submit supporting documents for validation to facilitate payments of the locked-up cash.
However, per the latest communication from Menzgold, only 40% of the claims submitted passed validation.

Meanwhile, the three-page statement also urged customers who feel their claims are genuine to verify their gold trading transaction status.
“We entreat confident customers to acquire a 'Menzgold Traders Transactions Status Verification Access Card', from Payboy Company Limited and/or any of its underlisted agents for a Personal Identification Number (PIN), to be utilized to digitally verify one’s transaction claim eligibility or otherwise,” the statement signed by the CEO said.
Menzgold's problems started in October 2018 when the Security and Exchanges Commission (SEC) shut down its operations on suspicion of malfeasance.
