Man guilty of selling fake bomb detectors

Post by Ali on Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:20 am


A millionaire businessman who sold fake bomb detectors to countries including Iraq and Georgia, knowing they did not work, has been convicted of fraud.

James McCormick, 56, of Langport, Somerset, is said to have made £50m from sales and sold over 6,000 to Iraq.

The devices, which sold for up to $40,000 (£27,000), were based on a novelty golf ball finder and supposed to detect explosives, people and drugs.

An Iraqi bomb victim described him to the BBC as a "morally bankrupt" man.
