From the early 1990s to now, commencing with James Randi and the Quadro Tracker, and now comprising a huge Worldwide network, the fight has been on to try to eliminate the trade in fake detectors which claim to be able to find everything from explosives, to drugs, to people, to gold deposits, to almost anything.
The picture illustrates the end of the line of this disgusting trade in fraudulent hope. Further the terrible waste of money on what are effectively dowsing rods dressed up as fancy gadgets, with absolutely 0 possible working principle.
We know of a latest very reasonable estimate from various sources including credible news reports and public documents of $200 -250 million dollars of sales around the World.
Plus the many hundreds if not thousands of deaths caused by their inevitable failure, because every single one of these devices is totally useless, they are still on sale, including in the U.S. Germany, India, China, and many other locations around the World.
The campaign has made great progress in the last year, and we are hopeful of much more UK action soon. However, we want to see concerted Political action to at least shut down the International aspect of this scam.

We now need a final push to major Westen Governments to get an effective ban in place. What we want is more cross-border co-operation, especially to recover as much of the money as possible and put it to better use e.g. Schools and Hospitals!
We will petition;
U.S.A. for pursuit of Charles Chistensen and his H3Tec, and other U.S. based or or agents of variants e.g Electroscope, AL-6D, and DKL Lifeguard,and Lectrasearch, as well as other long range locators (lrls) based on dowsing operation.
Germany for pursuit of Unival, David Vollmar, Frank Trier and the HEDD1 (formerly Sniffex Europe/ SNiffex Plus)
Gary Bolton, Global Technical, UK GT200
John Wyatt, SDS Group UK, HEDD1
General Pierre Hadji Georgiou, ProSec. Lebanon, ADE651
Stelian Ilie, Mira Telecom Romania, ADE651,
Simon Sherrard, ComsTrac UK, Alpha6

Malcolm Roe, Sniffex into Europe
Sam Tree, Sniffex/Mole/GT200 into Europe
Danie Krugel, South Africa, ex-Policeman who promotes a serially failed people detector.
For action against the Agents and buyers in Iraq, Thailand, Mexico, and elsewhere, who have facilitated this trade through bribery and corruption. Other sales have been to Kenya, Niger, Hong Kong etc.
We have documented evidence of sales in 30 countries and possibly 10+ more
This is a winnable one. We already have ADE651 principal under Police Bail in UK, General Al Jabiri arrested in Iraq for ADE651 corruption, Thailand have carried out proper testing on Alpha 6, GT200, and HEDD 1, with all failing (much pressure was required on Government to get past the bribe takers!), action by private companies to sever ties with participants, major media investigations by NYT, BBC Newsnight and many others across the World; Internet full of anti information on almost any relevant search possible; widespread network of blogs, sites and campaigners from small beginnings.
Embarassing and calling to account the perpetrators and the officials who were fooled and or bribed in this process.
We ask that you add your name to this worthy cause and we will deliver the petition to multiple sources including media at the end of June if we have a respectable number. How about one for every dollar spent! Or is that a bit much to ask? May be one for every life damaged. Perhaps 10 000+
Hope you agree a good cause and as many as possible please!!! Thanks so much!
Along with co-ordinated International action to pursue, and bring to justice the key players in this despicable trade in false hope and death.
Current estimates are of over $200 Million sales Worlwide at up to $60000 each which might have cost a maximum of a couple of hundred dollars to make.
And to recover as much of that money as possible to be put towards aid for Iraq and Afghanistan in particular. Western Governments allowed this trade to go on. I do not suggest a major conspiracy here. More some covering up of embarassment because a few got fooled by the ideomotor effect.
In the cases of actual sales abroad, e.g. of the ADE651 in Iraq, it was more to do with how much in whose pockets from $85 million!
The Police are investigating in UK. The Members of Parliament are asking the awkward questions. BBC Newsnight has exposed much with their great work!!

Some links on petition if you have a few moments. Some rough and tumble stuff so if of a sensitive nature be wary! But, it's a tough old World out there!!!!!!!! Parents, some of the language is a bit heavy on some of the blogs so please do not go the blogs if worried! Stick to Newsnight and Wikipedia!
Nothing we say is fundamentally untrue (occasionally we make minor detail errors, but we are human and try to admit our mistakes, unlike the disgusting criminals we are dealing with here!)
Nothing we do makes us any money! We are not connected in any way with competitors to these products, legitimate or otherwise. We are driven by entirely humanitarian goals.
