There is something about a group of girls that will make your bank account shudder in fear. One minute you’re account is flying high, and then the next this girl has somehow charmed her way into jumping on your bar tab.
However, three Chechen girls used this ability to swindle dudes out of money for good when they turned the tables on ISIS.
From RT News:
Chechen police have detained three female con artists who talked fighters of the terrorist group Islamic State into sending them money for traveling to Syria.
The young women turned the tables on Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) by using their primary recruitment tool, social media, against them.
But with the Chechen girls apparently the joke was on Islamic State, as they made a business of meeting recruiters online and pretending to be eager to go to Syria. The only obstacle, they said, was the lack of travel money, which the recruiters were often willing to provide. Once the money was sent via anonymous electronic transfers, the swindlers would simply cash the money and delete the social media account used in the con.
The girls conned the terrorists out of $3,300 before being caught by police.
Is it that easy to do this? Also, why are police detaining these three fine ladies? They should be given a parade in their honor for depleting some of ISIS’s funds. Maybe keep their identities out of it, though, for security purposes, ya know?
Whoever does those Nigerian Prince phishing emails needs to fire some ISIS’s way. Those guys would easily fall for that scam..
