Scammed! Chechen women ‘cheat ISIS recruiters out of money’
Regional police spokesman Magomed Deniyev said that the women had allegedly created accounts on social networks to contact ISIS
Police in Russia's province of Chechnya have opened a probe against three local women who have allegedly cheated the ISIS group out of money.
Regional police spokesman Magomed Deniyev said that the women had allegedly created accounts on social networks to contact ISIS, according to a report by government daily Rossiyskaya Gazeta on Friday.
Deniyev said the women would claim they lacked money to make a trip to Syria and ask for funds, and then erase their accounts after receiving cash. Deniyev claimed the three women earned 200,000 rubles (about $3,300).
He said they would unlikely face any punishment for fraud since it would require ISIS to file a complaint.
Russian officials said more than 1,000 Russian nationals have joined ISIS.
