A locked safe in Auckland has finally been opened, revealing a half-million dollars in gold and silver.
The safe was at a Queen St firm called Forex Brokers.  Forex Brokers collapsed last month when it was discovered the firm owed clients – mostly used-car companies – nearly $15m.
The discovery had triggered a dispute over who owned the gold.  Should it go to the owner of the company or the people the company owes money to?
The Serious Fraud Office is now involved.  A spokeswoman for the SFO this week said: “At this stage the matter is still being evaluated, that process does involve some enquiries but it is not yet an investigation.”

  1. :O Wew, i think the gold should go the customers cause the firm owes money and they shouldn’t get the money back because they were bad peeps.

  2. Wow, thats a lot of $$$$$$$$$, but how old is this gold? It might be historic and old, but its not my choice to choose where it goes, but i hope the workers get some of that $$$, because they have worked hard!

  3. I reckon that the gold should’ve went to the people the company owes money to. That’s what I think
