SNNIFEX or GT200 scam in Pakistan and in other mostly third world countries

iT AMAZES ME THIS SCAM WAS ALL OUT IN 2010 AND ITS NOW FEB 2012 IT IS STILL BEING USED IN PLACES LIKE PAKISTANI AIRPORTS........ SCARY

Whenever I go to Airport and to high-end shoping malls there are always security guys going back and forth of my car with antenna thingy so called bomb detector, well even before I dug up internet for this, my god given common sense always told me WTF looks like a total scam and it came out to be scam all and it is still being used in Pakistan.

Goes by the trade names like Sniffex, ADE651, GT200, H3 Tec, HEDD1, AL-6D and etc is a total scam which was mostly sold to third world/developing countries.

Most cost effective bomb detector is man's faithful friend "the dog" specially trained for that purpose.

Man these people are clever enough to make fun of governments.

And these governments act so cheap, why didn't they first bought a prototype to check the effectiveness of the device and then order in masses.

Its complete blunder by the country officials which bought these devices.

im many countries it is also used to track spirits :)

Wow I see it being used at Airport entrance all the time. This definitely looks like scam especially when I read this part:

dawn news published a report on this a little while ago. The airport officer defended it like he had invented it himself.

hideous and heinous crime the capitalists have played with appalling government and natives...I've experienced and seen these through-out in Iraq. And believe me there were around hundreds of check-posts relying on these devices...Pity!

Great find Kamran!

Maybe it does succeed in keeping the bombs away to some extent, but a lie is a lie, and a non-functioning bomb-detector is useless and dangerous to everyone. Quick removal of these is necessary!

hats off to Rehman Malik. He was in charge of BB's security as well.
