ALERT: London Gold Exchange Permanently Closed!
Monday, September 26, 2011
t seems that the scandalous financial world has claimed another high-profile casualty: the London Gold Exchange. An announcement was made on their website claiming “Due to operational difficulties the London Gold Exchange is permanently closed for business.”
According to Wikipedia:
The London Gold Exchange was owned by LGE International LTD., an offshore company registered in Belize, with offices in London, England and Hong Kong… London Gold Exchange operated 2 franchises, one in the UK and one ‘International’ which covered everywhere other than the UK. The UK administration office was in Central London, with staff based in locations around the UK. The International administration office was in Hong Kong, with staff also operating from mainland China. Technical staff also operated from locations in Australia.
Founded in 2002, their official business was trading digital currencies like c-gold, Liberty Reserve, Pecunix and v-money.
No further explanation was given for the “operational difficulties,” nor has there been any indication as to if and how their 100,000 members will be affected.
