Note: since Assistant Legal Attaché Adam Rogalski told me on 2021-09-20 that he was “one of the FBI representatives,” I assume that this communication was transferred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Let’s assume that what the criminal entity McDonald’s China did in China were to be considered legal…

20 grams of 24K gold (I think it’s 24K) for 10’100 RMB? Not a very good deal if the current price of gold is about 408.11 RMB per gram (see Screenshot 2023-02-07 at 14.38.50.png)
Mr. Lehman, what if I launch an online store in China and start selling 20g of 24K, for… let’s say given the current market price, just half a percentage point below the market price (to make it seems believable otherwise people will be suspicious) and I write in the fine print in a way impossible to read that it’s 20 grams of 24k gold based on the original weight of gold ore before it’s extracted and refined (to make it clear, in the end, maybe there is in the end only half a gram of 24k gold but I advertise it as 20 grams of 24k gold). Would it be legal?
I think it wouldn’t [be] legal. I think it would constitute serious fraud. For me, it would obviously be criminal.
