Millionaire businessman James McCormick, 56, has been convicted at the Old Bailey of three counts of fraud after selling fake bomb detectors.
The Advanced Detection Equipment was based on a golf ball finder device and sold for up to $40,000 (£27,000) in Iraq, Georgia, Saudi Arabia and Niger.
McCormick, of Langport, Somerset, said to have made £50m from sales of the devices, will be sentenced next month.
An Iraqi bomb victim described him as a “morally bankrupt” man.
