Emgoldex (Emirates Gold Exchange) is warning the public about an alleged scam that is using their company name. According to a press release posted on their official website, some unidentified people are using their official brand name for their own personal benefit.
“We would like to give you a warning that, unfortunately, there are people who try to provide their activity, or activities of their legal entities on behalf of the only official company and online store of Emgoldex.” A statement reads at Emgoldex.com, which conducts all of its activities worldwide.
“Using the brand name of the company for the promotion and distribution of the goods and services, these unfair persons mislead other customers and potential clients of the online store.” Emgoldex added, noting that these people are distorting information and giving false schemes.

In addition, Emgoldex said that the scammers promise potential customers to create websites that are the same as their official website. The investment company reminded the public that its clients are not their employees and that it does not promise a “get rich quick” program.
Emgoldex emphasized that people should not accept any information coming from third parties and that they should verify the information only through their official website. Anyone who has information about any suspicious activities using the company name is advised to contact Emgoldex Customer Support.
In line with this, Emgoldex said on its official website that the company “specializes in the buying and selling of investment gold bars of different value. Our investment gold is procured and provided only by the top producers internationally.”
For their program, Emgoldex said that their company is “not only selling investment gold bars, but also provides a guarantee of buyback of gold from its customers with the most profitable prices. The customers of the company can use the service of certified depositories for gold and diamonds.”
As of posting, Emgoldex has not yet officially released the identities of these alleged scammers. On the other hand, Massachusetts Secretary of State William F. Galvin started to investigate the operation of Emgoldex Team USA in August 2014. Colombia and Panama are also doing similar investigations.
