Who has not had a heartfelt plea by email asking if you will kindly allow a billion quid to be deposited in your bank account in return for 10% of the action. All you have to do is hand over your bank details. Now, James McCormick has taken the crown
Jim is the home grown lad from Somerset who took governments like Jordan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia for a ride by offering them a gadget able to detect explosives at long range
It didn't work, as a lot of Arab bomb disposal and security chappies who went into unscheduled orbit found to their cost, and now Jim is a guest of Her Majesty with the fuzz looking for the £300 million he's thought to have cleaned up.
