A British businessman conned governments around the world by selling them useless bomb detectors that were little more than golf ball finders, a jury heard [last week].
Jim McCormick allegedly charged up to Â£27,000 for the fake devices, which he also flogged to police and military services for a â€œhandsome but unwarranted profitâ€.
Brochures â€“ featuring men in military-type outfits â€“ promised the detection of substances from planes, beyond walls and even beneath the ground, said prosecutor Richard Whittam, QC.
But all three models â€“ the ADE650, 651 and 101 â€“ were a sham and did not work, he added.
In fact the 101â€™s forerunner, the 100, was just a Â£13 golf ball finder.
