Woo Bomb Detectors Again

While Jim McCormick may have started up trading again with his new website for ATSC Ltd selling the bogus ADE 651 diving bomb detector, I understand that he is still on bail and should take note of the latest press release from the City of London Police.

Today we learned that officers of the Overseas Anti-Corruption Unit (OACU) investigating the fraudulent selling of bomb and substance detection equipment have today carried out a number of searches in Devon, Kent and Nottinghamshire where they seized a large amount of cash, several hundred detection devices, their component parts and carry cases.

The team carrying out the investigation are specialists in international corruption and bribery. They have tested these devices under scientific conditions and it will be no surprise to readers of this blog that there was no evidence that they worked. I am surprised they found anything inside the devices at all after the BBC exposé earlier this year.

The head of the OACU, Det Supt Colin Cowan said “We are concerned that these items present a real physical threat to anyone who may rely on such a device for protection. It is for this reason that we are seeking to raise awareness of this threat and obtain assistance from the public.

“If anyone has any information about the manufacture, sale or distribution of these items then please contact the OACU by leaving a message on 020 7601 6969 or email: OACU@cityoflondon.police.uk. If urgent, contact the City of London Police’s main switchboard on 020 7601 2222 and ask to be put through to the Overseas Anti-Corruption Unit.”

I am not going to name names but you should be able to work out who is under investigation this time round.

So back to Jim McCormick. … Does he seem reticent and remorseful about his past activities? On the contrary he seems defiant as befitting ex-police officers,

“ADE 651 has performed several successful trials and tests in many countries for governmental agencies and private companies and these tests are documented and recorded by those respective clients and customers. Our success in the market in despite of all the intentions to discredit the equipment and the company is reflected by the excellent results obtained by our customer in using the ADE. The actual customers and new customers send new orders ADE 651 because of the results of the equipment in the field. The specialists know very well how and where to use the equipment in order to fulfill their tasks and commitments.”

You could not make this stuff up.

    look dmab
    You are madder than a box of frogs on acid and whilst I have operated a tolerant attitude to the more colorful comments in my blog, I am going to start deleting and blocking you. Frankly your inane rants are not original enough.

    Seconded, That guys medication is clearly not working.

  5. You just started deleting Markuze’s comments? Man, this guy is a scourge; you should just delete his comments on sight. It’s hate spam, plain and simple.

    One of the things I find most despicable about McCormick is that I do not believe he believes his product works. There are many quacks of all stripes who really believe in the crap they are selling, and while the damage done is the same, I see them more as stupid or ignorant than evil. But if the ADE devices are really built the way it is said they are, then there’s no way McCormick really believe it would work.

  6. Hate spam, indeed.
    It’s a shame you have to wake up in the morning to this kind of BS.
