  • ISIS Used eBay to Send Terror Money to US

A recently unsealed Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit reveals investigators in the USA have been looking into a global financial network which used fake eBay transactions to funnel money to an alleged operative in the U.S.

According to a report from Wall Street Journal, a recently unsealed affidavit, which was filed in the federal court in Baltimore, alleges that Mohamed Elshinawy - a USA citizen who pledged allegiance to Isis - received about $8,700 (£6,713) from the terrorist group under the cover of fake sale of computer printers via eBay.

Sujan, ISIS director of computer operations, was killed in a drone strike in Syria on December 10, 2015, a person familiar with the case told the Journal. Other alleged operatives were arrested in Britain and Bangladesh, according to the affidavit. The FBI claims that Elshinawy, in his early 30s, sold computer printers on eBay as a front in order to receive the payments through PayPal.

The man in his 30s admitted to investigators that he was told to use the funds for terror attacks in the USA, although he never carried one out, the affidavit says. He has pleaded not guilty to supporting the terror group, and now is in federal custody awaiting trial.

His lawyer declined to comment, the Journal reported.

Elshinawy has pleaded not guilty to supporting ISIS, but prosecutors allege the money he received was to be used for a possible terror attack in the US.

The case illustrates how the Islamic State is tapping the online financial world to finance its global terrorist activities, according to the report.

One former Treasury Department official likened trying to police such forms of financing terrorism to "looking for a needle in a massive haystack".

A spokesman for eBay told The Wall Street Journalit "has zero tolerance for criminal activities taking place on our marketplace".

A spokeswoman for PayPal Holdings Inc. said that it "invests significant time and resources in working to prevent terrorist activity on our platform...."
