The following statement was taken from the artful dodgers website.
The application of our expertise in presenting practical and realistic estimates continues to contribute towards the successful sale rate of 85-95% of lots, a figure which considerably exceeds the industry norm.
The above Statement is a misrepresentation of International Autograph Auction's true selling performance.
Richard Davie struggled to sell 10% of our collection. However, it was when we received the balance of our items back was when the horror began!
Many items had broken glass, missing glass and damaged frames. However, the wardrobe movie props were more servilely damaged. One item in particular belong to rap artist “Snoop Dog”. This was returned badly ripped and beyond repair - please see photo.
Richard Davie is a disgrace to his profession. And to be honest the other two directors are a waste of space too!
To date we haven't received any compensation or any explanation as to why our property was so badly damaged.
If you are seriously thinking of selling your prized collection, please think about using another company. Richard Davie has turned what should have been an enjoyable transaction into one of horror and dismay. With his sickly butter wouldn't melt in his mouth sucker you in smile. Richard Davie is the most untrustworthy person we have ever come across.
At first, Richard Davie will do anything to sucker you in, he will even attempt to pull a magic rabbit out of a top-hat. However, once he has your tricked his way in and taken your prized collection the magic will slowly fade and the nightmare will just begin.
Richard Davie is full of hot air promises. His failure to respond to our telephone messages is just why we hate this man so much!
