Hundreds of customers of the now-defunct gold dealership firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited, today, Monday, 28 October 2019 converged on the various designated centres to have their documents validated ahead of the payment of their lock-up investment with the embattled company.
This followed an earlier notice given by the company directing its clients to go to the centres for the exercise which will last until 28 November 2019.
There were hundreds of customers in long winding queues when the Class News team visited one of the centres opposite the Osu Police Station at about 10 a.m. on Monday.
Some customers who spoke to Class Business’ Pious Kojo Backah said they reported to the venue as early as 3 a.m. As of mid-day, about 75 customers had been validated.
The company expects to validate about 600 clients daily.
Despite the ongoing validation process, some clients remain sceptical of getting their locked-up funds.
One client said: “I have been here for almost five hours and I don’t see any positives that I will get anything from here”.
Another individual, who could not have his details crosschecked due to the huge number of clients, said he will return the next day.
“I will come here like 4 o’clock or 3 a.m. tomorrow,” he said, as he walked away from the centre.
The designated outlets for the validation processes are listed below:
a) Osu – Opposite Osu Police Station, behind Glory Oil Filling Station.
