Taking advantage of peoples fear and respective national security was a British Business man: He has been sentenced to ten years in jail after selling fake bomb detectors to Iraq and other countries for profit. The judge described him as having “blood on his hands”.
James McCormick, 56, allegedly made over 40 million USD from sales in Iraq alone. Detective Superintendent Nigel Rock said he held some responsibility for killing innocent people:
"McCormick practiced a callous confidence trick, and he was satisfied from the evidence that in all probability McCormick's device contributed to serious injury and death in Iraq, to name one country,"
The fake bomb detectors had no working components and lacked basic science. He sold them for up to 40,000 pounds each.
