Nick Hall Knife Attack
According to Antiques Trade Gazette, in the past, he issued a warning to dealers and auctioneers to be wary of bogus appointments after he was the victim of a vicious attack. He was contacted by a man, who gave the name of Simon Taylor, requesting a valuation of his father’s collection of Moorcroft at an address in Stoke-on-Trent. As he was driving from Cheshire to the address, he received a call from Taylor, changing the location of their appointment. He claimed his father was being difficult about the sale of the items and suggested meeting instead at an industrial estate in Stoke.
When he parked on a quiet side road, he was met by a man who punched and threatened him with a knife. After a struggle, his car, a pale gold Ford Mondeo estate (registration number EJ06 AYG) was stolen. Luckily he was not seriously hurt suffering only cuts and bruises. However, he was eager to alert other dealers and auctioneers who may be targeted by such a scam.
