“I humbly urge all Menzgold clients to kindly remain calm, as we prepare to COMPLETELY SETTLE all entitlements of any magnitude soon. We’ve got brands & names to protect. Self-restraint now is critical to maintain public peace & order. All is well,” he wrote.

The company has come under fire recently after years of battle with state agencies for the controversial nature of its operations.

According to the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC), Menzgold is licensed only to buy gold from small-scale miners and export same.

The company is however not permitted to buy/sell gold collectibles from the public neither does its license permit it to engage in its gold vault dealings.
